Question about Canon i9900 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Not printing at all!

The printer stopped putting out ink. The Head moves I hear it "printing" but nothing is coming out, just a blank sheet of paper. I printed out 3 papers with color right before it just stopped printing anything at all. I cleaned the seperate carts and removed any dry ink from the print head, but still wont print. I tried the hold form feed 4 times to see if that would work and it didnt.

My Dell A920 prints blank paper.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My printer print without no writting , paper just come out blank and it's new ank model hp d500

Hi, If you didn't used your inkjet printer for a long time the most common problem is that the nozzles of the print head are clogged with ink, so no ink can go down to the paper and that's why you see a blank sheet of paper. What you can do is Deep Head Cleaning from the printer properties menu a couple of times. If this does not help you will need to replace the print head

Blank paper comes out when print is pressed

Can you hear the print head moving??

If so then ink has run out OR is dry in print head, go into Printer software and locate "printhead clean".

If print head is not moving maybe fault internally.

Printer prints blank pages

The print head is a part of the printer itself and unlike other printers, you cannot remove it or soak it without ruining your printer. So just try the print head cleaning option and perhaps replace cartridges, especially if you are using a third party or refilled cartridge which can clog even if it is full.

New ink in printer but will not put ink on paper.

It sounds like blocked nozzles to me, providing you're SURE you have good cartridges, properly installed (you did take the yellow plastic tapes off the vents before you installed the cartridges of course).

You can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If nothing, repeat the process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results

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!!
