Are you using a refilled cartridge? if yes----please refrain from using a refilled one. take a tissue paper/cotton cloth clean the spilled areas until dry. put the printer in a dry area----not outside..under the fan propably for 20 min and try taking a printout. better still...refer a technician.bcz you need to be delicate with the encoder strip while cleaning it.

My canon MP810 all-in-one printer, i've cleaned the printer head, and i have replaced the ink cartriges with new Canon brand, but till got error code U052


Printing with an empty ink cartridge may cause printer malfunction. U051 / U052
U053 / U059 The ink cartridge may not be set properly, or an ink cartridge not supported by the printer is installed.
Install the proper ink cartridge.
If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error will occur. U075 / U076 The ink cartridges are not installed in the proper position. Install each ink cartridge in the proper position. U140 An ink cartridge not supported by the printer is installed.
Install the proper ink cartridge. U161 / U162 A used ink cartridge may be installed, or the ink cartridge may be empty.
Replace the ink cartridge.
By pressing the OK button, printing can be done without replacing the ink cartridge. However, the remaining ink amount cannot be detected properly, so the function to detect the remaining ink amount does not operate. READ/WRITE MODE Since the memory card is currently write-enabled, printing is not possible.
Set READ-ONLY MODE ON. NO PHOTOS ON CARD Some images in the memory card may not be in a supported format. images listed below cannot be printed directly from a memory card. Print them from a computer.
The waste ink absorber is a part inside the printer, which absorbs ink used in the cleaning operations, etc. CHECK PRINTER Turn the printer off, and remove the power plug from the outlet.
About ten minutes later, plug it in again, and turn the printer on.
If the problem is not resolved, the printer may require servicing. Please contact your local Service Center.

Hi my printer won't print black, test colour work but no black, therefore all text to print is blank. I have replaced the ink with a new one and cleaned it 5 times, still no black ink. Thanks


Hi

Clean it manually by removing the black ink cartridge and rub the print head into a paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows more. Then run the print nozzle to clean the print head thoroughly. After, try to print again.

If not, dip the print head only into hot water for 5 minutes and then run the print nozzle.

Let me know if you need more help

Brother lc61 printer will not print in black even wit a new cartridge installed


Hi innercepter,

1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

Wont print in black at all even after numerous cleans etc and new catridge. Colour is fine though?


Hi,

* Buy alcohol solution (70% or more). You can find it in any drug store.

* Remove both cartridges from the printer head. Unplug the printer head from the printer body. Pour the alcohol into paper towel layer.

* put the printer head on the top of wet towel with the face of HEAD touching the towel.

* clean the head with the towel and get rid of all the built-up ink on the head.

* Pour the alcohol into the printer head container (ink-receptacle area is where the ink cartridge normally sits, notice a small hole where the ink flow into the printer). Do not touch any electronic parts and let it dry over night.

* Do step 2-5 again if necessary.

* Install the cartridge back to the printer and run several head cleaning maintenance, print nozzle check, make sure to repeat this step until no more dead nozzle shown.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Spillbläck full? What to do


It means that the pad that absorbs the ink when the heads are cleaned is full and if you use it more it will spill the ink over your desk. The official way to deal with that is to take the printer to a dealer and they will clean the absorbing pad and reset the warning.
You can do both yourself:
1 - to clean the ink pad: remove the cartridges and unplug the combo - the carousel should remain in the middle, leaving the pad in the right side visible; take the printer to your sink and pour water over it thru a pipe (try not to splash it everywhere) until the pad becomes white and the water that flows out colourless; allow it to dry thoroughly (at least 2 days in a hot environment).
2 - Reset the Waste Ink Volume Counter
1) Press Menu + Copy + # to enter SERVICE MODE.
2) Select TEST MODE.
3) Select 8 - PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE.
4) Select 3 - EEPROM CLEAR.
5) Select 0 - INK COUNT.
6) Press the OK key.
7) Press the Stop/Reset key (returning to the state of 3) and then press the ON/OFF key.

Refill ink cartridges 4 hp photo smart c3180


918b476.jpg

You need to pour 3ml of each color if you have a 342 and up to 5 ml if you have a 343. Magenta is red, cyan is blue. As for the black one, if you have a 336, only one hole has a sponge. You can always check that by inserting the needle in the hole- if you feel pressure, there is a sponge. If not, it's not a refill hole, do not pour ink in it! If you have 338, you have 5 holes and you can pour a bit of ink in each of them. Pour max 10ml if it is 336 and 15ml. if it is 338.
Slowly pour the ink in each refill hole. If it starts leaking, either from the refill hole or the print head), don't panic, just remove 1ml or 2 of ink. When you are done, gently wipe the electric contacts on your cartridges and put them back in.
Here are links, just in case:





If you haven't been printing for a week or so, you might need to do a "nozzle cleaning":
  1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. Open HP Solution Center , select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox . The Printer Toolbox appears.
  3. Click the Device Services tab.
  4. Click Clean the Print Cartridges .
  5. Follow the prompts until you are satisfied with the quality of the output, and then click Done .
  6. Try the print job again.
Also, your printer will continue telling you that your cartridges are empty. That is normal, because the printer sees the cartridges by their serial number. So, just ignore the warnings.

Hope that helps!

Your printer works with the BCI-3E (bk/cyan/magenta/yellow) cartridges, that are in fact just ink-tanks, the printhead being apart of the tanks, so if the cartridges are not empty, it cannot be because of them. It doesnt matter if you replace the cartridges, the problem is in the printhead. Curious thing is that usually it starts with pour quality printing if printhead starts to clogg, not with blank pages...

If the problem occured just a while ago, you should consider that NOT PRINTING a long time (30 days) with a printer can lead to ink drying out in the printhead, clogging the nozzles. But usually not entire, so that something is still printed, paper does not come out white.

Anyway, now it comes:
If you have some tehnical skills, you can remove the cartridge and desassembly the printhead (where the cartridge are in) and do the following:

First of all, look if there is somne ink lines on the nozzle part of the printhead. If you put a paper-tissue on the nozzles and it let on paper the 4 lines (black and colors) than maybe it's useless to clean the printhead, ink is comming trough and dont know why paper comes out blank.
If there are dry:
Put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the printhead with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridges back on the printhead (without installing it in the printer), rap it in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles. Then clean gentle the nozzle part of the printhead on some sheets of tissue.
Get the cartridges again out of the printhead, install it in the printer, then install the cartridges again and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

It should work. If you dont have the tehnicall skills needed, Canon gotcha, or you can visit a local specialist to make all this for you, they usualy have better equipmens, as ultrasonic cleaners and special solvents that makes all this easyer.

If after that still dont work, it's bad, it's not from cartridges or printhead, it's something else... Dont know what, from a distance.

Rate the solution if it helped you!

Thx.
