SOURCE: printing blue picture with yellow lines

I had this problem too.
There was no low ink warning but one colour was missing, as seems to be your case.
Either the jet is still blocked or the colour is dry.
I had to change the cartridge and all worked fine.

SOURCE: nozzle check

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.

SOURCE: Printer is blurry and does not print lines properly.

The cause of your problems is you may need to replace your printheads or clean them. By doing a search on the internet you may find a solvent or information on how to clean the printheads.

It appears that the printer is malfunctioning and will require service. I suggest contact its manufacturer to verify the warranty status of your printer, and have it replace by them. If the warranty is already expired, you can send the printer to the nearest service center for repair.

I have a Canon Pixma MP270 and I can only print in colour both the black and colour lights are lit up on the printer


f print quality does not improve by the standard cleaning of the Print Head, clean the Print Head deeply. Cleaning the Print Head deeply consumes more ink than the standard cleaning of the Print Head, so clean the Print Head deeply only when necessary.
1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Clean the Print Head deeply. (1) Press the g0022565.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until y appears. g0054776.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning the Print Head deeply. Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the deep cleaning of the Print Head. This takes about 2 minutes.

3. Check the print head condition.

When the deep cleaning is completed, the LED returns to the copy standby mode. To check the print head condition, print the nozzle check pattern.

See " Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern".

If the problem is not resolved, turn off the power and clean the Print Head deeply again after 24 hours.
If the problem is still not resolved, replace the FINE Cartridge with a new one.

See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".
If the problem is still not resolved after replacing the FINE Cartridge, contact the service center.

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles.

NOTE If the remaining ink level is low, the nozzle check pattern will not be printed correctly. Replace the FINE Cartridge whose ink is low.
See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".



You need to prepare: a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.

3. Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

4. Print the nozzle check pattern.

(1) Press the g0020617.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until A appears. g0054754.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.

The nozzle check pattern will be printed.

5. Examine the nozzle check pattern.
See Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern.

Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern

Examine the nozzle check pattern, and clean the Print Head if necessary.

1. Check if there are missing lines in the pattern (1) or horizontal white streaks in the pattern (2). g0054755.png (1) Check if lines are missing in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".

g0020623.png
(A) Good
(B) Bad (lines are missing)

(2) Check if horizontal white streaks are present in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".

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.

Printer update


Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing If the printed nozzle check pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head. NOTE:
a. Cleaning the print head consumes a small amount of ink. Cleaning too often reduces the amount of ink in the ink tanks.

b. Print head cleaning is performed when you connect the power cord. Your machine may perform print head cleaning periodically to avoid clogging.
  1. Press <COPY> or <PHOTO>.

  2. Press <Menu> repeatedly until <USER DATA> appears.

  3. Press < (left arrow) or > (right arrow) to select [MAINTENANCE].

  4. Press <OK>.

  5. Use < or > to select [CLEANING] or [HEAD REFRESHIN] as necessary.

    [CLEANING]: Performs normal print head cleaning.
    [HEAD REFRESHIN]: Performs deep print head cleaning.

  6. Press <OK>.
