Re: not printing at all

This might sound a little obvious, but I've seen it before. But did you peel off the plastic covering from the cartridge before you installed it?

I have a Canon MultiPass C555 InkJet Printer for my fax machine in the church office. I don't know how old the machine is. Whenever I receive a fax I cannot read it. I even change the ink and I still...

These machines have an integrated printhead built into the printer. The only way to try to fix this issue is to run the cleaning function anywhere from 3-7 times. First, remove the ink cartridges and depress the sponge side onto a paper towel. If you see ink on the towel, proceed to the next step. If no ink is present, replace the ink cartridges. They can be found for very cheap on this model. Next step, depends on whether or not the machine is hooked up to a computer or is just a stand alone fax machne. If it is not hooked up to a computer, go to the menu, scroll to maintainence and select clean cartridges. You will need to do this multiple times. Continue to do it if you see improvement, until you are satisfied with the print quality. You an also perform the cleaning from a computer. Locate the printer in the printer folder and right click on it. Select properties. At the bottom of that window, select preferences. Then select the maintainence tab, and select clean cartridges. Again, you will need to do this multiple times. Please advise if you need further help, or if this does not work and you would like info on current fax machines.

Hy everyone.I've got a problem.I am having canon pixma MP190 and when i click "Print" the printer shows "The following ink cartidge cannot be recognized : Color".Please i need help !


is there an error code, i know with cannon it has to be there cartidges or you will get and error code( as in a #) now i also remember that on a canon both cartidges have to be in machine and in the correct slots and in a tight position. try hitting ok on printer and see if it prints even though you get an error message that would tell me it is bypassing the ink cartidge and then if i were you go back through the steps i the manual for replaceing an empty cartridge with a new one .

hope it helped

Canon Multipass MP730...placed new ink cartridge in twice now...nothing be printed...what could the problem be?

For me, there can be 3 problems, and I will do what I do in order.

1. The print head may be clogged. To unclog it, you have to remove the 4 cartridges, remove the print head (lever up, and remove the printhead), run those silvery things under a luke warm tap and low flow and pressure for about 5 minutes or until no ink drips out, and dont aim for those silvery things, do not touch the contacts on the back. Install the printhead, cartidges, lever down and go for it.

2. Well still no results... Get the printhead out of there again as your machine is getting old and tarnished. Get a sharp knife. Stroke down on those contact things downward only with your knife, a couple of columns at a time, couple of strokes per column. Put everything back, lever down, and go for it.

3. A new print head $50. Sounds a lot, but the last cartridges were $1.69 a pop. These cartidges last quite some time, as long as you fire something through the printer each week. This has to be the most economical bubble jet printer in the world. I have 3 of them.
