The printhead moves and it sounds loke it is printing but the paper is blank?


A few possibilities:

1. out of ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

2. clogged ink-jets -- run the "print-head-cleaning" utility.

3. messed-up electronics inside the printer -- buy a new printer.

I have a Canon i9900 not even a year old and I have tried cleaning and deep cleaning printer head and still my printer prints nothing


Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Canon i9900 isn't printing photo magenta


Use denatured alcohol to soak the print head. Then use suction to draw the alcohol back thru to the foam ports where the ink cartridges rest. Continue until the alcohol runs clear. Then use water and then repeat with alcohol. Allow to dry and re-install in printer. Use new ink cartridges when re-starting printing.

Hi, ok your ink well is clogged (the stuff the ink cartridges fit in) remove all the ink tanks, then remove the inkwell by pulling the lever to the right. In a dish pour some rubbing alcohol and tel the ink jets soak a bit. pour some alcohol over the nossles(where the ink sits to send the ink through) and let it soak a bit more. Use a straw and cover the jets then blow, this will force the bad ink out clear the jets. Blot it dry then replace. blot each inktank before replacing them to insure the ink is running out. A couple of deep ink cleanings and you will be set.

If this fails you may have to replace the ink well and the cartridges (order new ones from canon) But cleaning it should work, try at least 3 times before deciding to buy a new one.
