    When I run nozzle check, nothing is printed either. How do I clean contacts of the cartridge holder? Is it physical action or I have to run something? tks.

    I have the same problem, I fear. Is it possible that the printhead can die suddenly? Wonder if the only solution to problem is to buy a band new printhead? My printer executes test patterns but will not print in black...or colors, for that matter.

My Canon i850 accepts data from my pc. The printer head seems to go into action, but no print goes onto the paper after it goes through the printer. What could be the cause of this ? I have recently...


It could be a number of things
1: usb cable could be faulty this sending incorrect info across
2: could be something wrong with the actual print head try opening up the machine and see if you can move the carriage left to right by hand
also check if your able to print a test page from the unit itself to confirm it can print without the pc

Blank pages coming out of i850 with new printhead


Alarm / Power light flashes orange 7 times consecutively is a Print head error so it sounds like you did the right thing.

I would reseat the printhead along with each one of the ink cartridges. Make sure that you removed the tape from the bottom of each of the ink cartridges and try it again. After installing the new printhead, you should have run a printhead cleaning cycle immediately after installing.

Issue: Certain colors are missing or no ink prints on the paper
Solution: Install / replace the recommended ink tanks correctly i550 / i850

Untitled Document How to install / replace the ink tanks
The ink tanks suitable for the printer are as follows;


Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK
Cyan Ink Tank BCI-3eC
Magenta Ink Tank BCI-3eM
Yellow Ink Tank BCI-3eY


Note: There are two ink tank label designs.
Operation procedures are shown with label design A.

1. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

2. Remove the empty ink tank by pushing the tab on the ink tank.

Note: When doing this, do not remove the print head. When replacing multiple ink tanks, it is recommended to replace one at a time to avoid inserting them into the wrong slots.
(The image is an example using i850.)

3. Remove the new ink tank from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove it completely, and remove the shrink-wrap film.

Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the tape remains, printing may not be performed properly.

Confirm that the orange tape is completely removed from the ink tank, as shown in image 1. If the tape is similar to the sample in image 2, remove the remaining portion of the tape so that it looks like the sample shown in image 1.

(1): Correct

(2): Incorrect (where the arrow indicates)
4. Slowly twist the orange protective cap in the direction that the arrow indicates, and remove it. To avoid ink adhering to your fingers, brace the orange protective cap while removing it.

5. Insert the new ink tank to the print head by holding it at a slight angle.

Note: Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the right order according to the labels on the print head.

6. Press down on the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

7. Close the front cover. The next time the printer performs printing, it will automatically start print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash while cleaning is performed. Until cleaning completes, do not perform other operations.

S520 will not print in any color


If you have tried to print a nozzle check page and no ink has been deposited on the page, then it might be a bad logic board inside the printer or a faulty purge unit. Both parts are relatively expensive to purchase. You might be better off looking for a used Canon s520, i550, i850, pixma 3000, or similar model to use the remaining ink cartridges if you can locate one in good condition and not more than 40 USD. xcd187
