Question about Canon PIXMA MP760 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hadn't printed photos in awhile, but when I went to do some the black is dull and full of lines. Using all Canon ink (bought all new to see if it helped). Ran head alignment, print head cleaning, deep head cleaning, roller cleaning - nothing helps the dullness, though I did get the lines to disappear for a couple photos. Help! I scrapbook and I need to be able to print nice photos.
Take the cartridges out and also the printhead and set the nozzle of the printhead on a 5-sheet pile of kitchen paper that was make wet in the middle with some lukewarm demineralized water ( water for an iron )there is not much necessary if there are clogged nozzles deep inside the printhead buy cartridge flush different methode for printers to find

SOURCE: smeared lines
Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

My MX700 is 1 year old and I to have issues:
2) Says it's out of paper when there is paper in it. Shutting off an Turning on usually helps
3) Feeds multiple pieces of paper at once!

The ink tanks may be full but sometimes the pins that connect the cartridges to the printer may have dried up ink on them preventing the ink from flowing. You can try to swab these with a bit of rubbing alcohol on a Qtip and letting it dry for moment or two. I would strongly suggest doing a couple of deep cleanings first and try test printing of the individual colours separately in a program such as paint to see which colour is affected.
