Hello.

First make sure you removed any protective tape or caps on the
ink cartridge.
If there is a contact surface on the cartridge make sure
there is no dirt or fingerprints on the contact surfaces.

Ink cardridge replacement


Try cleaning the print heads (that option should be on your printer's menu). It does use up some ink, but in my experience with Epson printers, it needs to be done way too often. If that doesn't work, try another new black ink cartridge. I just had the same problem with an HP printer that was fixed by using another new cartridge.

Printing, but not full words Canon i850


Sounds more like the actual print head has become dried out and simply needs to be cleaned. This is a common problem with Canon Bubble and Ink Jet printers.

You should be able to remove the cartridge and then the print head shuttle that moves across the page. Once you have it removed, you will need to get a couple of Q-tip swabs and some DENATURED ALCOHOL, NOT RUBBING ALCOHOL as the water in rubbing alcohol will damage the printer head. Wipe the face of the printer head GENTLY with a moistened swab, you should see the dried ink dissolve, do this a few times until you see no further ink on the swabs.

Allow it to dry for a few minutes and then reinstall it into the printer. You will need to run the alignment function of the printer to ensure that the print is aligned properly. That should do it.

Cheers,

Keith

hi welcome to fixya!
I believe there is no print head failure happening. I experience that one time, it only needs a new ink cartridge. Be sure to replace the right color!

Print head problems 7 yellow lights 1 green light, how do I fix


That's not a printhead problem, it's saying that the waste ink absorber is full. You need to have them replaced at a shop where they can also reset the waste ink counter.

Blank pages coming out of i850 with new printhead


Alarm / Power light flashes orange 7 times consecutively is a Print head error so it sounds like you did the right thing.

I would reseat the printhead along with each one of the ink cartridges. Make sure that you removed the tape from the bottom of each of the ink cartridges and try it again. After installing the new printhead, you should have run a printhead cleaning cycle immediately after installing.

Issue: Certain colors are missing or no ink prints on the paper
Solution: Install / replace the recommended ink tanks correctly i550 / i850

Untitled Document How to install / replace the ink tanks
The ink tanks suitable for the printer are as follows;


Black Ink Tank BCI-3eBK
Cyan Ink Tank BCI-3eC
Magenta Ink Tank BCI-3eM
Yellow Ink Tank BCI-3eY


Note: There are two ink tank label designs.
Operation procedures are shown with label design A.

labelsa.jpg Replacement Procedure


1. Check that the printer is powered on, and open the front cover. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

2. Remove the empty ink tank by pushing the tab on the ink tank.

Note: When doing this, do not remove the print head. When replacing multiple ink tanks, it is recommended to replace one at a time to avoid inserting them into the wrong slots.
(The image is an example using i850.)

3. Remove the new ink tank from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove it completely, and remove the shrink-wrap film.

Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the tape remains, printing may not be performed properly.

Confirm that the orange tape is completely removed from the ink tank, as shown in image 1. If the tape is similar to the sample in image 2, remove the remaining portion of the tape so that it looks like the sample shown in image 1.

orangetape.jpg
(1): Correct

(2): Incorrect (where the arrow indicates)
4. Slowly twist the orange protective cap in the direction that the arrow indicates, and remove it. To avoid ink adhering to your fingers, brace the orange protective cap while removing it.

5. Insert the new ink tank to the print head by holding it at a slight angle.

Note: Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the right order according to the labels on the print head.

6. Press down on the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

7. Close the front cover. The next time the printer performs printing, it will automatically start print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash while cleaning is performed. Until cleaning completes, do not perform other operations.
