Dell 3000 CN has no printheads, printheads are on inkjet printers, this is a color laser.

On a laser there is nothing that you can clean with a software.

If printer is not printing replace toner cartridge or try reinstalling drivers.

If printouts are dirt, then the printer must be manually be cleaned inside, see Clean your laser printer safely with these tips

Black ink in printer not printing out but color ink prints out fine


The black print head is faulty or blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Why is my dell 926 printer is blacking everything out


Hi,

The print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Performing up to 6 cleaning cycles is not uncommon if the print heads are severly clogged.

Now you will be able to print in colour.

Hope this helps.

Canon BJC-3000. Paper goes through but is blank.


Hello there
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Dell 3100 CN Prints a stip on black all the way


There is a known issue for these printers to "streak." If under warranty, call Dell. If not, there is a fix
for the defective drum unit design but requires a little technical expertise.

The procedure is explained here:

Dell 5100 cn printer - cyan color not clear - all others are good - anyway to clead heads etc.


Clean the heads, no. You could try a color calibration from the printer. If this does not help the issue, you may have a cyan cartridge with a bad seal. Replace the cartridge.

Error code


and even if you did get rid of error 51 that you have created, you will find that you still cant print in black, original problem is the print head is stuffed probally from dodgy non gen ink running threw it and the fix is to replace head. I don't know who is telling all you brother mfc owners to clean your print head but your paddling up the wrong creek, these heads are electronic deivices that dont take kindly to cleaning, they are not the same as other brands. Re error 51 goto different machine same engine post
