Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have gone through the maintenance of cleaning and deep cleaning. I printed the color test sheet out - the black portion is not there at all any longer - only the color portions show up. I try to print a word document and the printer goes through the motion and the paper comes through as usual but there is no print at all on the page.
I have replaced my cyan and my black 3e thinking that would help. It didn't. I shut it and my computer connected to it off and restarted both. This didn't fix or change anything.
If there is no black in the test page then there is the problem with black cartridge .then try these steps
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
