Try maxing out your power save timers. Here are the instructions. I suspect the machine is going into power save mode to quickly. Here is how you do that.

NOTE: To save energy, the printer enters a power saver, low-energy consumption mode after a predefined period of time since its last activity. In this mode, most printer electrical systems are shut down. When a print job is sent to the printer, the printer enters the Warm-up Mode. You can also warm up the printer by pressing the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
If the printer is going into Power Saver mode too often and you do not want to wait while the printer warms up, increase the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.
Modify the timeout value:

  1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Printer Setup] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Printer Controls], and then press the [OK] button.
  3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Power Saver Timeout], and then press the [OK] button.
  4. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select the required timeout value (30 - 240 minutes), and then press the [OK] button.

    NOTE: Select a larger timeout value to extend the length of time before the printer goes into the Power Saver mode.

  5. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Exit], and then press the [OK] button to return to the Main screen.

How to change the ink box


Sir/Madam

The ink absorber box or flushing box is full. These components are periodic maintenance items that may require replacement after a period of time to ensure optimum performance from your Brother machine. Because these components are periodic maintenance items, the replacement is not covered under the warranty. The need to replace these items and the time period before replacement is dependent on the number of purges and flushes required to clean the ink system. These boxes acquire amounts of ink during the different purging and flushing operations. The number of times a machine purges and flushes for cleaning varies depending on different situations. For example, frequently powering the machine on and off will cause numerous cleaning cycles since the machine automatically cleans upon power up. The use of non-Brother ink may cause frequent cleanings because non-Brother ink could cause poor print quality which is resolved by cleaning. The more cleaning the machine requires the faster these boxes will fill up.

Other reasons for cleaning are:
  1. The machine automatically cleans after clearing a printer jam.
  2. The machine automatically cleans itself after sitting idle for more than 45 days (infrequent use).
  3. The machine automatically cleans itself after the ink cartridges have been replaced 12 times.

My HP 7350 PhotoSmart has been printing excellent photos; however, when I enchance my photos with MS Office Picture Manager, I do not get the same result from my printer as what the monitor is showing.


Two different systems that is why, each one has different resolutions than the other.

The rating as follows 1 the service was not related to the post. 2 the service was related but not did not help at all. 3 the service was to the point and somewhat complete. 4 the service was excellent and to the point.

I have an 8-year old Canon i9100, and have just installed my third brand new Print Head. It worked fine for one month, then the black started fading and then just stopped printing. All the other colors...


It is probably a bad purge assembly, when it doesn't clean or prime the printhead properly you have the problems you are describing. There are 2 sections in the purge assembly, one cleans color and the other cleans the black. Sounds like the black pump is worn out. The part runs around $30.00

Paper Jams and Black Streaks


I would suggest calling a professional on this one. The jamming problem you are describing is probably the rubber feed tires in each tray that pick the paper up. They need to be replaced. If you could get the parts, you MIGHT be able to do this...however....the other problem is much more involved. It could be that you only need a drum cleaning blade. This is the blade that cleans the unused toner from the drum. But it could also be the drum itself, the developer, or the fuser. And it sounds like it could use a good vacuuming on the inside. Do not clean the drum. If the drum is still in good shape, cleaning could change that. Drums are very prone to scratch. I would call a professional....tell him or her: the model of the copier, and to bring feed tires, a drum cleaning blade, and a vacuum.

Hope some of this helps,
Chad

XEROX Work Centre C2424 has error code 07,010.43:1559


That is a code that comes up when the print head is not piviting properly.
The 2 main causes are , 1 there is a stainless steel block on the left side of the machine which gets ink spilled into it, it needs removed and cleaned, the other issue is if there was a power failure or the machine was inproperly shut down, the wiper blade that cleans the print head between copies is stuck between the drum and prine head.
Let me know if you want to try and fix this. Its not to hard, Just somewhat time consuming.
there is a 90 percent chance one of those 2 things is causing your problem.

There may be a release lever for the print head assembly which would allow you to remove the print head and clean the excess ink from it. If it appears to get better the more pages you print it may be just a matter of time and lots of pages before it cleans itself.
Try running the print head cleaning utility multiple times to help reduce the amount of ink on the print head. This could take quite a few times before it gets better.

Won't stop cleaning and using up all ink in cartridg


I found a solution at another forum. I have the same printer with the same problem. What you need to do is put some electrical tape on the colour cartridges to stop the printer from sensing the ink level. I put tape on the clear plastic ridge on the back end of the cartridge and this allowed me to print from the black ink cartridge even though the colour ones were empty. I used black tape which i think would work best.

I am also going to leave the printer off until i need it so that it doesn't waste the ink by doing random cleaning at all times of the day.

PGBK Problem


Make sure you are using Canon ink cartridges, and not generics or refills.

If good Canon cartridges do not solve the fault, there are two likely causes.

1. Your purge unit is damaged or clogged. Many times I have seen a printer work fine at the top of the page and poorly by the time it gets to the bottom. Many times this is solved by removing the purge unit and cleaning it. Most purge units have small rubber hoses that can become clogged with dried ink. I wouldn't suggest removing this unit unless you're technically inclined. You MAY actually have to remove the tubes from the pump in the unit and clean them before reassembling. I've seen many people get to this point and then fail to be able to reassemble.

2. Your head may be wearing out, or have cloggs. You can use the "Soaking Method" on most canon heads. Put some hot water in a cup. The cup should be wide enough to allow the bottom of the head to sit in it without allowing the entire head to fall in. Put enough water in the cup to cover the bottom portion of the head (the nozzles) only. Let the head soak overnight. Next day reinstall the head, do a few deep cleans or whatever the best type of clean your driver will give you.

Now, either everyhting will work fine or you'll find your cleaning cycle is not working, in which case goto step 1 above.

Our service centre does a strip and clean for $45. If it's less than half the cost of a new machine it might be worth considering taking it for service.

The color ink in my hp deskjet 920c won't work


try cleaning the contacts (bronze like) with dry cloth both the cartridge and the cartridge holder most of the times there exist some liquid forms on both areas. since you frequently remove the cartridges; their might be a broken part on the cartridge holder. the broken part, use, is to make sure the cartridge is in absolute contact with the cartridge holder's. the size the said broken part is 2 mm in all sides. so small that it has a big function.you dnt even recognize.
