Its not maintenance programme, its print head alignment page.Once print heads are aligned successfully, you wont get this page.
Reason: One or more print head nozzles are not firing/blocked/dried up the align page will not prints properly to read result printer unable to align P.heads. You can observe the print quality, based on that replace/clean the particular print head(s) and check. Verify that each line it will read & marked as a "right tick". If its marks like "X" ensure that align page not successful.
If you are confused better replace all(four) print heads, to get out of this issue peacefully.But ensure that before replacing the print heads,all cartridge ink level should be more then 50%.

SOURCE: officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

Not printing black


Sounds like the print head needs alignment. If an "auto" alignment can't or won't be run, somewhere in the maintenance section of your printer driver software should be an operation for running a print head alignment and doing adjustments to get the printer aligned for clear printing. First you should check the maintenance program for "head cleaning" and run a couple of head cleaning cycles to see if a clogged head is the problem...

Ink jets may be clogged, go into your printer software for the canon. At someplace in there there should be an option to run the cleaning program on the printer. This is used to clean out the jets and clean up the printer a little bit. Make sure that you have lots of ink, Cleaning process uses a lot ink

HOW CAN i CLEAN THE HEADS AND RESET THE NOZZLES.


How to Clean Print Heads

Method 1 of 5: Self Clean Program for Windows XP/Vista Users

1 Open the control panel menu and select "printers."
2.Choose the printer to be cleaned and right click. Select "properties" in the drop-down menu.
3. Choose the tab for cleaning. Various printers might have it listed under different names such as services, cleaning or maintenance.
4. Select the nozzles that should be cleaned, if applicable to your printer, and run the printer's cleaning program.
5. Print a test page and check results. Repeat cleaning 2 to 3 times if needed.

Method 2 of 5: Self Clean Program for MAC Users

1.
Click on "system preferences" and select "open print and fax."
2. Choose the printer that needs to be cleaned and open "Open Print Queue" or "Print Queue."
3. Click the utility icon for the applicable printer and select "maintenance." Select "cleaning" from the pop-up menu and click "OK." You might have to choose the tank you want to have cleaned.
4. Run the head cleaning program and print out a test page. Repeat cleaning 2 to 3 times if needed.

Method 3 of 5: Manual Cleaning
1.
Check your printer's owner manual for the location of your print head. Refer to the directions below if the head is in the printer and not part of the individual ink cartridges.
2. Remove the ink cartridges and dab hot water or isopropyl alcohol onto a cotton swab.
3.
Rub the swab against the print head to loosen dried ink. You can also use a dropper to drip 7 to 10 drops of the isopropyl alcohol into the ink receptacle if your print head is deep in the printer.
4. Run the printer's own cleaning program 2 times and then let the printer sit overnight. Repeat the self-cleaning utility the next day.

Method 4 of 5: Cartridge With Print Head
  1. 1Soak the ink cartridge in a bowl of hot water overnight if your print head is inside the cartridge.
  2. 2Remove the cartridge from the water and dry it thoroughly with a paper towel.Put it back into the printer and run the cleaning program. Repeat 1 time if it does not work.
  3. 3Place the ink cartridge into a bowl of isopropyl alcohol and let it soak overnight if the hot water soak did not work.
  4. 4Remove the cartridge and wipe it off with a damp towel before drying it.Attempt the self-cleaning program again. If it does not work this time, you probably need a new cartridge
Method 5 of 5: The Vacuum method

  1. 1I replicated the way the printers themselves try tho clean the cartridges
  2. 2Using a Vacuum cleaner hose
  3. 3attach the printer cartridge to the vacuum cleaner hose with the cartridge upright, nozzle down using plasticine or blu-tack
  4. 4for no more than a few seconds at a time turn on the suction , regulate using the suction or curtains regulator on the vacuum cleaner.
  5. 5Repeat if necessary
  6. 6if the print cartridge is cleaned , ink will be visible , if its a multicolour cartridge the resultant ink will be black if all 3 jets are clean
  7. 7wipe off the residue ink with tissue or toilet roll .
  8. 8Refit & print test page as per other comments .
  9. 9This definitely worked for me and has no know side effects apart from the odd inky finger !
Tips
  • Print a page every 2 weeks or so and turn off your printer when it's not in use to keep the print heads from clogging.

Fifty percent of lines in a paragraph do not print. Is this a driver problem?


If it looks like intermittent lines are missing from each row then you need to clean the printer heads. Go to start-->control panel-->printers. Right click on the printer and select properties. Click printing preferences at the bottom and hopefully you will have a maintenance tab. From their you can choose to do a "head cleaning". Its a little different with each printer manufacturer. If you can't find it in there you can try running the actual program that came with the printer.

Good luck

PRINTER COLOR PROBLEMS


o.k. I can give you a few tips that may be of assistance.

you need to run a printer alignment page like you do when you put in new cartridges.

unplug your printer plug it back in.
open door and take out print ink cartridges.
put them back in and then close the door.

It should now prompt you to do a test alignment page.

Also, Another thing to try is to hit file, top left of page, hit print, click properties. color tab.

make sure you are printing high quality on chose different color management options.

FINALLY TRY THIS:

When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors are Incorrect

When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect, even if ink remains in
the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the
procedures below to maintain the print head.
Important Before maintaining the print head, check the following;
􀁺 Open the front cover and make sure that the ink tank
contains ink. If it is out of ink, replace it.
􀁺 Ensure that all the orange tape of the ink tank has been
peeled off.
􀁺 Press "PUSH" on the ink tank and ensure that the ink tank
is installed securely.
􀁺 Increase the Print Quality setting in the printer driver
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print
head nozzles, and to verify print head alignment. Use this function when printed results are
blurred or the color is incorrect.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
(3) When the confirmation message is displayed, click OK.
When the confirmation message is displayed after the nozzle check pattern has
been printed, click OK.
See "Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern" on page 52.
Note Nozzle check pattern printing can be executed also from the printer
itself. With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the
printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Print Head Cleaning
Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozzles might be clogged. Cleaning the print
head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.
The print head can be cleaned also from the printer itself. With the printer on, load a sheet
of Letter-sized paper in the printer. Hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp
flashes once.
1 Ensure that the printer is on.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Start Print Head Cleaning.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Cleaning.
(3) Select the print head to be
cleaned.
(4) Click Execute.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Print Head Deep Cleaning
If print quality does not improve by standard print head cleaning, try performing print head
deep cleaning, which is a more powerful process. Print head deep cleaning consumes ink,
so perform this procedure only when necessary.
1 Ensure that the printer is on.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Start Print Head Deep Cleaning.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Deep Cleaning.
(3) Select the print head to be
deeply cleaned.
(4) Click Execute
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Aligning the Print Head
This operation must be carried out when using the printer for the first time. Aligning the
print head positions allows you to print without shifts in the color registration.
Print head alignment is performed either automatically or manually. This section deals with
automatic print head alignment only.
1 With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter-sized paper in the printer.
2 Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
See "Opening the Printer Properties Dialog Box Directly from the Start Menu" on
page 25.
3 Print the pattern.
(1) Click the Maintenance tab.
(2) Click Print Head Alignment.
(3) Check that paper is loaded in the
printer and click OK. If a message
warning you not to perform other
operations appears, click OK.
It takes about one minute to start

Not printing black


First of all the print head is clogged just because you have tried to print repeatedly while some of the cartridges are empty. This results ink burn in the nozzle and clog. My recipe: Heat some drinking water in the kettle (70-80 C). Put the head in it and shake gently several times until ink is completely clean (10 minutes). Change the water do the same again. Change the water again (70-80 C) this time put a spoon full of apple vinegar (becomes a natural acidic solution very dilute) shake again, clean with cotton stick. I did it and started to love my mp800 again as much as I just bought it, all colours come back and started to print superior photos again...... Do not touch heads' copper poles and cartridges poles because of the static electric they may mulfunction and colours may becaome totally mixed for a short while...
