HP and Canon Ink Series Printers – Hot Water Printhead Flush


When an inkjet printer (most newer HP and Canon inkjet printer models since 2006) exhibit poor print quality, missing color(s) or image streaking, flushing the printhead with warm water for several minutes will usually resolve the issue. It is first suggested to ensure ink cartridges have plenty of ink and to perform a 'Clean Printhead' action at the printer before attempting the water flushing procedure. This procedures is applicable to individual ink tank printer models that feature a removable Printhead assembly only. HP 564 HP 920 Ink Series Printers Hot Water Printhead Flush

My R320 has started leaving a ink stain at the bottom of the printed pages along with the stain there is slight damage to the bottom corners of the printed sheets.


Highly likely that your waste ink pads are now overflowing, causing backflow into the resting/cleaning pad where your printhead normally sits when not in use.
If you haven\'t already you should probably consider an external waste ink kit like a Printer Potty or similar as this will deal with any future waste ink flow.
However, if the pads are already highly saturated you\'re going to need to also drain them as much as possible using a syringe and blunt needle to suck as much excess ink out of the printer base.
Access to the base will probably be easiest via the access hatch in the back.. I suspect you\'ll confirm a puddle of ink back there at the same time.
Removing the waste ink excess is no quick and easy solution, just suck what ink you can out, then leave the printer for a few hours before repeating. This will allow the pads to re-distribute the excess after your efforts and some of that will then become accessible from the hatch.
Ultimately it\'s a big old clean up job but one worth doing.
To clean the underside of the printhead get the printhead off it\'s resting base (turn on, wait till it move, then pull the power cord).
Then just wad up some kitchen/paper towel (or even toilet roll), soak it in distilled (if possible) water and then place it in the printheads path. Move the printhead gently back and forth a couple of times so the wad of soaked material can wipe any ink deposits off the printhead base.
Avoid the temptation to scour the underside of the printhead repeatedly as it\'ll damage it.
Initially you probably won\'t see much improvement but over time the remaining ink spills and soiling will fade out as it gets cleaned out through use.
Good luck.

Why isnt printer printing full page, only printing every second line, has ink dried up in cartridge? do I need to clean some heads or something??


Yes flush it!

Flushing the print head of the cartridge directly from the tap water

1. Open your printer cover
2. Remove the cartridge
3. Place the printhead directly on a tap water running slowly. This will help flush the dried ink that clogged in the printhead.
4. Turn the printhead over, bottom side up until you see the ink flowed out from the printhead, do this until you see the a smooth flow of ink..(better result if the water is warm)
5. Tap water contains residual minerals that can clog also the printhead..so it is advisable to final flush the printhead with a distilled water (it has no impurities) and dry it with cloth..
6. The last thing to do and it will take you sometime is to soak the printhead portion of your cartridge in a mixture of ammonia and hot distilled water, (please make sure that the contact point of the cartridge to the printer is not soak).. Place the printhead on the hot water and leave it there for about 4 to 5 hours..move it on different location from time to time..After soaking, rinse it with distilled water and dry it with cloth...

After doing the instructions, return back the cartridge to the printer and do the printhead alignment..

Try printing a test page and see the outcome...

Have ink, but its not printing. the paper is doing the right thing ,but not putting ink on paper


Please make sure that the print head is not clogged. The ink can flow out easily from the print head. How do you know if there is no dry ink clogging the print head? Remove the cartridge and run the print head in a soft smooth paper, see if the inks was left in the paper proportionally. If no ink marks then its clogged.

Shortly after toilet flushes, you hear a tinkling sound for several seconds, as if water dripping inside. Sometimes also hear another sound like flushing even though toilet is done running,


Check the water level inside the tank to be sure the tank isn't overfilling and spilling into the overflow tube.

Also check the flapper valve (the rubber valve at the bottom of the tank that sits over the flush hole and is connected to the flush handle) to be sure it is holding and not leaking.

Make sure the handle chain that goes to the flapper valve isn't tangled up and holding the flapper valve partially open.

Black text d not print


If the printer has been left for some weeks with an empty black cartridge then I suspect the print head is clogged.
To clean the print head, firstly remove it.
Remove each cartridge quickly and turn it upside down so ink does not drip out.
Flush warm water with a drop of detergent through the metal meshes at the bottom front inside of the print head unit. Continue untill the water coming out of the bottom of the print head is clear.
Then flush through with clean warm water for about 30secs.
Shake as much water as possible out of the unit.
Replace the cartridges quickly to avoid ink dripping out.
Undertake a nossle (head) clean on the printer until printing correctly.

Hope this helps.
