Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Pixma MP830 is printing things green that should be red

All the other colors print the correct color but when something red is printed, it is green - a nice regular green - not some color you might get when a cartridge is out. All cartridges are new. Any help is appreciated

When you change all new cartridges (make sure all cartridge ok, and the cartridge pins connection ok) still red color lost, it is the trouble at print head ink chanel some of that is too dry for longer time less using , most CANON printer head is separated from the ink cartridge, two way you may try:
1) take out the ink cartridge, drop down a little the special cleaner (best clean tools buy from dealer), to the head ink chanel hole, then set back the ink cartridge and waiting minutes
2) try put the print head bottom surface touch a little cleaner or water 1-2 hrs, if you can take out the print head unit. still not fixed for some case that should change the print head unit.

    you may try following if solutuon #1 tough to do

    you may try this comment if solution #1 tough

    1) do clean nozzle cycle (do more times) until print normal

    2) clean the color ink cartridge wicks using soft paper, still not fixed go next

    3) clean print head nozzle area, power on and open top cover,the cartridge moving away the parking lot and then pull out power lead, and put a soft paper with a little solvent (making it quite damp, but not totally soaked)
    on the parking lot (see the pump cap area with spongy pad covered in ink and match the lot size same), manually moving the carriage (slow and very careful) to the parking lot ( the paper will raise upto print head) to stay 10 minutes then gentlely

    moving away the parking lot, you may look what color down to the paper, do same thing untill to see three color and black appear on the damped paper.

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.
