Running cleaning cycles will only clear out some clogging but not really solid clogs which it sounds like you have with this printer.

I'd recommend finding a suitable cleaning solution (you'll have to google that I'm afraid) and then soak a pad of kitchen roll or similar in it... Place this pad on the printheads resting pad area (you may need to manually move the printhead to one side to do this.

... the push the printhead into the resting/parked position and leave overnight. This allows the cleaning solution to wick into the printhead nozzles and break down any clogged ink.

Run a single cleaning routine the next day (don't try to rush things!) and a single nozzle check. Leave for an hour and repeat a nozzle check.

You may need to repeat the cleaning pad routine but even a solidly clogged printer can be brought back to life so long as you are patient and you have the right solution (obviously).

Hope that helps.

Depending on when you last used your printer it may take a few head cleans before the ink prints. Print a nozzle check after each clean (uses minimal ink).

Also be aware each clean depletes your other carts as well.

I can't print with the black ink. I performed a print head cleaning, and then I printed the nozzle check pattern. I noticed that the Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow shows up. However, the black checkered...


Simple problem that print head cleaning will typically not fix. The black ink is pigment based so it tends to form more stubborn clogs. Just remove the print head and if you have a steamer hit the black printhead nozzles with some pressured steam. If not available, soak the surface of the printhead in shallow hot water (try not to get the contact wet or be sure to dry them if you do). You can tell if the printhead nozzles are open by folding a section of wet paper towel like 5-10 layers and then soak it, press the printhead surface up and down lightly on the wet paper towel and if the nozzles are open you will see some ink pulse in the black port screen (the colors will also pulse from the pressure of the liquid under the printhead). It's easier than it sounds so give it a try. I've saved 100s of Canon printheads this way.

Note: if you have a really dried out head, you sometimes have to soak from the top inlet ports and the bottom nozzle surface to clear, but unlikely in you case since you had a black cartridge installed with ink in it (this keeps the top port from drying).

Sometimes the ink does take a while to come from the cartridge to the print head. Performing 1 head cleaning procedure may fix this. But only do this once, anything after is just wasting ink. Also make sure no part of the air tab sticker has blocked the air hole in the cartridge. Have a look at the new one you have to find the hole. Its just under the sticker you take off before installing it into the printer.
I hope this helps Regards GM

Canon MP510 skips and makes 2 small blank lines going DOWN the pages, in only cyan and magenta. The two lines show up on the Nozzle Check Pattern but only on cyan and magenta.


If 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? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magicis ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to usethe Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should beprinting again like new.

When printing a red line appears about every 8mm through the all of the page i am useing a epson rx630 fred


It means some nozzle not perfect. If you check nozzle, there is missing lines for some nozzle. Example : Print blue color ( 100% cyan + 100% magenta). If some point of cyan head is clog, the output will be shown that at some lines just show magenta. It repeated. Yous said every 8 mm, so, you must print it at best photo quality. If you have print at best photo quality, and lines still appear, it must some nozlle badly clog. Try do head cleaning, wait for 30 minutes. Check Nozzle.

What does a nozzle check pattern show. Which colours are present and how many lines are missing from the poor ones? What cartridge numbers are you using? Genuine or refilled? How old is the machine?
