# 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.

My Epson Stylus CX3900 is printing faintly though it is showing enough ink in all cartridges to print another 100 pages. Please let me know the solution. Thanks


Hey

Most epson cartridge monitors lie! unfortunately!
if the image if getting fainter try doing a head clean do this by entering your control panel and bring up the printers and devices file, click on the printers icon and look for the maintence/cleaning tab..tell it to do a deep clean if it doesn't get any better it's more than likely the cartridges are nearly out...
go and buy some new ones:-)
hope this helps,ben

Print nozzles must be blocked. Have to deep clean


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

2) try to put in your old one and if its some ink in it try to print something out, if its ok buy another crg.
3) it may be purge unit error.How many print outs do you have ?
4) on Ink Cartridge you have little circle and tiny hole - blow into hole so that you get some ink drops.If then works its purge unit 100%
5) Check print head

Canon MX700 with new cyan cartridge very faint


The print head needs a chemical solution. You have to soak it to chemical solution to unclog it. It should be a chemical solution that is really use for print head. If it does not work, the worse thing to do is to buy a new print head.
