You will need to clean and/or deep clean the ink cartridges through the maintenance features either located on the menu of the printer or the printer options located in Windows. If that still does not correct the problem then you will need to remove the print head and clean it seperately. I have posted the procedure for that in earlier remedies.

I've got a Canon Pixma MP 500. Printing from my computer = faded print. Copying = blank page. Auto head align fails. Alarm light goes on. Have tried stop/reset button. How can I fix this?


Hello,

It sounds like the print head on your printer is either clogged or not working.

You get faint print from your computer because the computer will use your color inks to get gray. When you copy, it only tries to use black and the black isn't printing at all.

Check your user's manual and it should show you how to clean the print head. Otherwise replace the print heads and you should be fine.

Thanks,

Pat

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.


You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

I want to print with black only - how can I do that on a Canon Pixma MP 500? I have a Mac


There may be other ways but after hitting print and your print dialog box comes up, check grayscale printing.
