My pixma610 is not printing clearly. It leaves gaps in the print. All the ink cartridges have ink in them.


Rosemary.
Do a deep clean cycle then a nozzle check either from the computer or the maintenance wheel on the 610.
May sure all the line are printed correctly.
If not remove the head and cartridges and take some hot(not boiling) water and mix it with2 oz. of Ammonia and let the head sit for an hour in a cereal bowl .Re-install after making sure the head is completely dry and check nozzles again.
If not working you either have bad cartridges or a bad head.
I have a new heads if needed.

After cleaning the Print Head, print and examine the nozzle check pattern (Step 1) again.


Step 3
Print Head Deep Cleaning.



If Print Head Deep Cleaning does not resolve the problem, turn off the machine and perform another Print Head Deep Cleaning after 24 hours. If the problem is still not resolved and if you are sure that the ink didn't run out, then the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

Hope this helps.
All the best.

Canon i960 printer banding on photos. How can I eliminate this? I have cleaned the print head, re aligned the print nozzle. Now what?


The FAQS for your printer suggest for your problem (banded or strewaked prints) you perform this actions:
  • Perform a manual print alignment
  • Perform a deep print head cleaning
  • Check if all orange tape was removed from print ink tank(s)
  • Select correct Media Type Settings for the paper you are using
  • Change the print quality settings.
If you need guidance on how to perform any of these actions, go to the support page of your printer:

and in the "Please enter your question..." textbox type "banded printing".

Help. Cannot print from black ink cartridge


Hi ....

There could be many reason for black ink not printing. You could try couple of steps starting with cleaning the print head ... Follow the below steps to clean the print head ...

After confirming that the cable is connected (if applicable) and the printer is powered on, perform the following.
Note: Standard print head cleaning can also be performed by holding down the <Resume> on the printer until the power light flashes one time. Deep print head cleaning (a more power process that uses more ink) can only be performed from the computer.
  1. Open the Printers folder.

    For Windows Vista
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.
    For Windows XP Home Edition
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows XP Professional Edition
    • Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows 2000/Me/98
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

  2. Right-click the printer icon and select 'Properties'.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab, and then click the 'Cleaning' icon.

    ip1500_win_cleaning1.jpg

  4. Select which nozzles should be cleaned.

    i80_win_clean_3.jpg

  5. Click 'OK' to continue with the print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash and print head cleaning will start. Do not perform any other operations until print head cleaning completes.

    ip1500_win_cleaning2.jpg

  6. When the print head cleaning has finished, print the nozzle check pattern by clicking on the 'OK' button to determine if further cleaning is necessary.

    i80_win_clean_4.jpg

  7. Once the page has printed examine the nozzle check pattern.

    ip1500_nozchk_pattern_good.jpg

  8. If the pattern does not print correctly, click the 'OK' button to return to the Maintenance tab.

  9. Click the 'Deep Cleaning' icon.

    win_maint_deep_clean1.jpg

  10. Click the 'Execute' button after selecting the nozzles to be cleaned.

    i80_win_deep_clean_3.jpg

  11. Confirm the message, and then click the 'OK' button to start the Deep cleaning.

    ip1500_win_deep_cleaning3.jpg

  12. The Power lamp will blink and print head deep cleaning will start. Deep cleaning completes when the Power lamp stops blinking and lights. (It will take about a minute for the Power lamp to stop blinking and light solid.)

  13. Print another nozzle test pattern. If the pattern still does not print correctly, replace any ink tank that may be low, and then perform another deep print head cleaning.

  14. If printing is still not satisfactory, there may be a problem with the print head or the printer may need to be repaired.
This resolves the problem most of the time but if this does not work, please just leave me a note and we'll move to the next step which is checking the cartridge installation to check if its inctalled correctly or not ....

Please vote if this helps .... Cheers :)

Printer prints same goobly gook over and over how do i clear


Solution: Perform the print head cleaning procedure MP750 / MP780

Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing If the printed Nozzle Check Pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head.
  1. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel repeatedly until [MAINTENANCE] appears in the LCD.

  2. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] or [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.

  3. Press the <OK> button.

  4. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshings if the pattern is not correct.

Now if you mean not printing the letters correctly go to this site and download the drivers and reinstall them. Also you will find manuals on HOW TO sort of thing:

Canon iP90 stopped printing in BLACK


hi... it might be that you need some time to let the ink absorb into the pads in the print heads ... this can take between a few hours and a day... Must be frustrating to deep clean three times and just seem that you are wasting ink cartridges, my "solution" would be to give it time or possibly clean the print heads manually.. hope it will solve it out..

thank u!!

Color Printing Problem


Remove all ink cartridges and replace them securely in position.That may be the problem always.
Print nozzle check pattern.See for any missing patterns
Give a head cleaning
Again print nozzle check pattern.If it is ok leave it, other wise give a deep cleaning
  1. If the printed result does not improve even after doing print head deep cleaning, turn off the printer. Then, after 24 hours or later, do print head deep cleaning again. (After a given time interval, ink could dissolve itself, resulting in ink unclogging.)
  2. Atleast a multi colour( like your visiting card) page should be printed in a week time. other wise the ink may clog in the head.
