Is the cartridge moving back and forth? if it is, and its not printing, then the ink cartridge is either empty, damaged, or not properly installed. :)

When we print something,the paper comes out and is wrinkled and has some ink on it in places where there is no print. The fuser checks out fine.


Description sounds like the fuser rollers are bad.
To check it out run a 1/2 test.
Put paper in the manual feed tray. Print something. As the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the top cover,(you might have to print a few sheets to catch it just right) take out the toner and look down at the paper. If it is wrinkled, you could have a bad toner cartridge. If it looks good...get the fuser replaced.

Cannon i860 Printer has been sitting without use for a few months. It acts like it prints but none of the colors show up on the paper. Why?


The color cartridges have gummed up from sitting. If the print heads are on the cartridges themselves, take the cartridge(s) out and place them on a paper towel that has been wet with warm water. Be sure and place them where they won't stain anything. Once you see the colors coming onto the paper towel, remove them and place them back into the printer. Now, refer to the manual for performing a cartridge cleaning procedure. You should be back up and running.

I cant print any paper out. it dosent work. something wrong with the paperhead. ive tried to clean up all printer but it dosentwork anyway. to print out pics on a cd works triffic. bt i want to print out...


If it prints photos but not regular (black) text. This means the black ink is not flowing at the nuzzle. This usually may not be resolved by just running printer ink head clean up.

What you should do is take out the black ink cartridge, press a folded tissue paper to the nuzzle (where the flows from); if it comes out blotted with ink, it is OK. if not, that's the cause of the problem. So place it in a plate/saucer/bowl with a bit of water so that the nuzzle part is all touching water. Leave it for about 10 minutes. take it out and press a folded tissue paper to it. The tissue should be blotted with black ink. You may need to repeat procedure till the blot is good enough/the flow is good enough. Then return it to the printer and print again.

Color ink want print after installing new cartridge


Take out the cartridge first get a couple paper towels fold them put about a teaspoonful of water in the center to get a wet spot then place the cartridge on the paper towels. the ink will soak out, use it to get the cartridge working may take a few tries, but it works. the place in printer and run a cleaning. secret is never let them dry-out and refill before it runs out.

Printer does not print


In this case what i would request u to do is.......
Take out both the catridges from the Printer.........
Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
Now do the same procedure again..........
Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer....
Now try to Print.........
This Should Work.........

What does "flushing buffer" mean


No response from the original poster as of 6/6/09. Normally, a "Flushing Buffer" message is pointing at a Postscript problem. A quick easy test would be to set the printer for PCL and retry the job. If it works, then you really need to look at the PS print file to find the error. Don

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper


Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.

Oki C9300 - paper keeps jamming in the 2 same places, reads either 383 paper jam or non paper sense error. All drums and tonners are new, paper is loaded.


your getting a 383 paper jam, find paper in two different places.
See if it's a duplex related problem. print single sided documents, if that works, try printing two sided documents (it'll be the duplexer) if it only fails while printing duplex.

Also, check the back door. Make sure the back exit tray is closed all the way.

You can also have a paper jam in the duplex unit (open the front door), the duplex unit slides out the front. You can easily remove the duplex unit and run the printer without it.

Cannon i 860 can't get the cyan to print - have run cleaning operation several times deep cleaning @ least twive & checked ink tank visually put new ink tank in put a Q tip to the head there is ink -...


Then try this, it works for me!!!
Canon will hate me for this.

1. Remove ink cartridges.
2. Remove print head.
3. Go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head being careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air-dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.
