SOURCE: my hp 1200 printer is not printing dark enough.

If you have installed the toner cartridge correctly then it is a hardware problem called the Fuser and is the most common problem with printers...the fuser is a part of the printer which actually melts the toner onto the paper. The fuser has to get up to a high enough temperature to be able to melt the toner, if it is malfunctioning then it cannot give you a dark print. You may search google for Fuser information: Recommendation is change out fuser to repair problem. Pls rate this solution.

Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Bre carefull when using other than original ink in your printer.
The material used, is not the best (that's why the price difference), and end up clogging the small printheads.
I wish I had better news for you.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE INK CARTRIGE IN MY CANON 340 PRINTER?


Carefully take out the ink cartridge from the printer. Make sure that you unplugged the printer. Do not touch any electrical wiring. Attach the new ink cartridge. A distinct click will confirm that you reinstalled it properly. Do not expose the cartridge to heat or light for more than 10 minutes to prevent damage. And run a test print.

Canon Pixma MP780. Recently my color ink


Have you checked to see if the jet area on the bottom of the ink cartridge has a blackish sludge on them? It might be that the area that the print cartridges are purged/cleaned to one side of the printer (sometimes called a service station, or spitoon) has built up excess ink that has gotten thick and high enough that as the carriage goes over that area the bottom of the cartridge gets polluted with the blackish sludge. It will work slightly into the jets where the ink comes out and cause discoloration, even after you change the color cartridge. Open the unit to look inside with a flashlight for build ups and clean it (if you find some) with disposable things like cotton swabs, coffee stirrers, whatever you have that wont damage anything inside. Another cause could be mixing of the cyan and magenta and yellow somehow inside making a dark color representing black - but replacing the cartridge would cure it immediately.

When printing on my Canon Pixma MP500, there is a dark black line down the middle of the page. As the pages print, it gets lighter and lighter, but is very dark on the first one. Any thoughts?


Ink tends to overflow at the bottom guide rollers and the roller gets coverd in ink and causes the black line!The best will be to take it to a dealer and have it cleaned!Good Luck!

You'll have to open up the printer and clean everything off. You probably have a feed roller with ink on it. If you refill, use ONLY inks made for your brand of printer.

That is ink or dirt on the rollers, you need to clean them by lifting the lid, as if you were putting new ink in, and wipeing the rollers that the paper runs through.
