Printer HELL !! need assistance

Hi, my printer stopped working recently and so i have replaced the printerhead and put in new ink cartridges. I've installed the drivers and yet it will only print blank pages. The printer goes through all the motions of printing but the pages are blank.i've uninstalled and reinstalled everything and checked the installation of both the printhead and the ink cartridges and all seems fine so i'm totally confused.None of the test print outs work either so hopefully you will have some idea..fingers crossed x.I am running windows vista home premium and it is a canon i450 inkjet printer.

What is the cost for a printerhead

Hi, If you check the price of printers now a days you'll see they are very cheap, reason look at the price of ink, see. Now for you to replace the print head is not very good pocket book wise if you can even find the part . So buy another new printer that has the print heads built into the ink cartridges. And every time you buy a new ink cartridge you get a new print head. HP printers are very good using this print head built into the ink cartridges, and there are other brands too. Occasional use will plug up the dedicated printer heads very quickly. And printers are designed to be throw away and parts are next to impossible to buy. That's the way the market dictates this printer business.

Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on your printer. On the printer touchscreen, touch Ink Levels > More Options > Deep Clean Printhead. Your printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If that doesn't help, please contact the Lexmark Technical Support Center or point your browser to for online technical assistance.

Your printer needs a service, in other words the waste ink sponges need to be cleaned and dried. They then need to be replaced and the printer reassembled. Then the Epson counter resetting software needs to be installed.

With this software the printer can be set to zero, it will work perfectly after this bit of attention.
It is a good printer, it's nothing that can't be repaired.

A computer technician will be more than happy to service your printer for you.

All the best!

Will not print---all I get is a blank paper

Try to check the ink of your printer that they have more ink inside. Or els just check the printerhead of that printer its maybe that was a problem for that. If they could not print at all after this solution just change your printerhead it is because that was the problem. If your printer are using the built-in printerheat from the cartridge just replace the cartridge of what color are did not print but if your using separate printerhead of your cartridge just only replace the printerhead only.

Print heads cans wear out. Put in cartridge sound more like a low ink level. Check ink levels and reseat the ink cartridges. Still no? I'd suggest having the print nozzles checked by a repair center or Canon.

Printerhead is not installed.

What you will need to keep in mind is that the ink cartridge contains liquid ink, once opened, can and will evaporate. First, wash you hands with soap and water to remove excess finger/hand oils. Use a clean, moist, paper towel, make sure you ring out the excess water from the paper towel before you begin. Remove cartridge, gently wipe the towel over the contact's pad, and the nozzel tip. Use a dry towel, and patt dry, reinstall. and run an alignment pattern test.
Note: If you do not see an ink trail on the paper towel, The Ink has dried up, and you will need to but a new cartridge.
Note: do not touch the Cartridge GOLD contacts, with your fingers, finger OIL will clog the jet pours, and cause them to corrode.
