Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
STOPPED PRINTING DUE TO PRINT HEAD FAILURE - REPLACED HEAD PRINTER PRINTS HOWEVER DOES NOT PRINT IN BLACK - I INSTALLED A NEW CARTRIDGE WITH THE SAME RESULT - PERFORMED CLEANING AN EXTENSIVE NOZZLE CLEANING ALSO USED THE SUGGESTED ON BOARD (PRINT DEVICE) BUTTONS FOR THE NOZZEL CLEANING TOO WITHOUT ANY CHANGE- ANY SUGGESTIONS my Cannon S530D printer doesnot print Black ink unless I am in easy photo print. Will not print a doc in black at all. I have changed print heads & even soaked the head with ink in it. nothing seams to work
SOURCE: 3e Black cartridge won't print
I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)
Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).
Hope that helped..

SOURCE: smeared lines
Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

No I haven't fix the problem. However I've been doing all the cleaning,cleaning and more cleaning. I finally gave myself a x'mas present. I bought a new printhead for the S530D. It's working perfectly now. I was tossing whether to get a new IP4600 or a new head, finally decided on the latter. Simply I can't get after market cartridges for the IP4600. The cartridges for the IP were way too expensive at this moment and not knowing whether the claims for the print numbers are accurate. Perhaps readers may be able to collaborate the claims for the IP4600 or IP4500.
Regards and seasons greetings & a happy new year 2009,
