Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer
POSTED BY margaret123 on Dec 26, 2007…. Pictures are not coming out good. When I do printer heads alignment , in column D and E there is nothing there.... ANSWER posted on Dec 29, 2007: Warning: This can be messy. Covering your counter or table and wearing throw away plastic gloves is strongly recommended. Take all the ink cartridges out. Wipe the rims of the ink ports and seal with tape or peel & stick label, to stop them from drying out and set aside. Flip up the plastic lever on the right side of the ink cartridge holder box. This will release the hold down mechanism that keeps the print head in solid contact with the electrical contacts at the back of the ink cartridge holder. Gently lift out the actual print head. You may have to gently use a straightened out paper clip to rock it out so you can get it with your fingers. Get a small plastic tub (cottage cheese or yogurt container) etc., and soak it in rubbing alcohol for an hour or two. Put enough over it to also soak the ink screens on the other side from the printing part of the head. Clean gently with a Q-tip and alcohol. Inspect the bottom side with a magnifying glass if available, and get any dried ink off. Change the alcohol and do this again until all ink is gone. Finally, shake the alcohol out over a newspaper (watch, it’s messy) and leave overnight to dry. Clean the gold dots with alcohol just before you put it back in. It is important not to touch the gold or the actual printing part of the print head. Put it all back together and run a few head cleanings thin a nozzle check. If the problem persists, call Canon and order a new print head. Approx. $60-70. Good luck.
MY PROBLEM IS: Columns B and J (in blue print) have definite vertical lines/vertical stripes; Column G does not show any print at all. I purchased and installed a new printhead and still have the same problem. Where do I go from here?
HTML clipboardIf you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is
likely to be electrical.
However, if like most... and your printer has just been left unused for some time?
Then provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? You just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
A Magic Inkjet Flush Kit usually works a treat on those!
Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP and removing those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints when dried ink clogs several jets...
So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.
You are covered by a 30 day money back guarantee if not.

The problem is most likely your ink catcher, it is a sponge that catches any ink when it is being cleaned. you need to remove it and clean it then put it back in. there will be instructions in your manual.

SOURCE: Canon MP360 not printing
You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Over on the right is not waste ink pads, waste ink is under the print engine covering the whole bottom of the printer. On the right is the purge assembly and there is ink on the filters on top and on the squeegee that wipes the printhead. You may need a new purge assembly, or just re attach a hose in the purge unit that may have come off. That printer is well worth the repair...
