I have found that plain water works best for unclogging the jets.
I place the cartridge in about a quarter of an inch of warm water for a minute then dry it off and reinstall.

The inkjets are blocked with dry ink. There is a solution available in PC shops to clean them.

Bypassing printer warning that stops my printer


this one is one of my favourite hate printers... but, no you cannot disabel this function easy, you can "fool" this printer by following that procedure:

1. switch off your printer, wait few sec, switch it on
2. on your computer go to "start"
3. select "control panel"
4. select "printer and faxes"
5. right click on your "kodak easyshare 5300"
6. select "properties"
7. click on tab "services"
8. select "service this device"
9. click on tab "estimated ink level" - it shows estimated ink level after restart

you can use refill (very easy to do by yourself and about 1/3 cost of original replacements). and yes, you are right, cartridges do tend to dry out. i would suggest printing at least one page per week to prevent dry out of the cartridge.

as this particular printer will not work without both cartridges present. i would suggest to insert one empty cartrdge in colour slot and keep it there. on full cartridge use any sticky tape to prevent nozzle from drying, cover breather hole on the top of cartridge as well. when you need to print, remove tape from breathing hole first and then from the nozzle. this way you will prevent or at least slow down your cartridge evaporation ratio.

HAVENT USED FOR 6 MONTHS. iNK SHOWS FULL. iNSTRUCTION ON SCREEN SAYS"iNSERT PRINTER HEAD" BUT IT IS ALREADY INSERTED. SHOULD i ATTEMPT TO TAKE IT OUT AND REINSERT OR IS INK DRY?


The ink must be dried up since you haven't used it for several months. Yes you can try uninstalling and reinstalling, but before you reinstall it, please clean the print heads and the contact points on the printer as well. Try shaking the cartridge and let it spill some ink drops.
This will help you fix this problem, and don't forget to restart the printer before you reinstall the cartridges.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Printer wont print black.already replaced with new ink but still wont print black


did you take the tape off the new cartridge and is the print head burned out for the black? if you installed the diagnostic's on it then run it and see what it says, otherwise expect the print head to be cooked, however it is possible to get a bad ink cartridge try tapping it on your finger and see if ink comes out if it does not then the ink cartridge is dried out or no good, about %15 of print cartridges are bad on just about any brand printer some more than others.

Brother DCP-145C Print in black and white..?


As far as i know it will not work for color print unless all the cartridges are full. It will still print in b&w- go to properties of your printing document and change to "greystyle" but this will only work if you don't/have not turned off the machine at the power point. Once the machine is reset it wants to confirm all new cartridges and wont allow a black print until they are all in and full. So you cant use cartridges that have run out to "trick it".
I'm not sure if this is the intent of brother ( my guess is yes) a design oversight or a genuine precaution measure for consistency by not letting the printing heads dry out.
The yellow always runs out first, so stock up on them if you do alot of color printing- but the cartridges only last for 6 months so don't go crazy.

Brother if your reading this- Most of us don't care about color~! We just need a printer for uni and information. Make it work on our price range please!

OK, Canon will hate me for posting this!!!!!

Remove cartridges.
Remove print head.
Go to sink or tub (stianless steel, not pastic type), pick up roll of paper towel on the way.
Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
Run HOT water till HOT.
Turn hot water to dribble.
Run hot water through print head, careful not to wet contacts.
When water is clear coming through print head, place print head on paper towel.
Repeat process until no colour on paper towel.
DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out to dry.
You may wish to let print head air dry overnight but I replace it after drying.
Replace print head in printer and replace cartridges.
Start printing again
I do this on all my Canon printrs every 6 months

Lexmark Z517 wont print black ink


I have a z600 that i use. If not used for about a month the ink does clog the print nozzles and eventually ink cartridge does dry out. To avoid this even if i dont have to print anything I run a diagnostics test that prints out a nozzle aligment test every two weeks.The great thing about this is that it uses very little ink.You can find this test in your software that was provided by Lexmark. This will keep your nozzles cleaned and you will notice this helps extend the life of your cartridge.
