Leave the print head ( not the whole cartridge!) soaking overnight in a little puddle of solvent e.g. print head cleaner or alcohol. This is much more effective than the printer clean program or a quick rub with a cotton bud.

SOURCE: Canon i960 printer won't print in blue

Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!

Try removing the cartridge and cleaning the cartridge contacts in the printer with a cotton swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol. When the contacts are dry, lightly scrub them with a white pencil eraser (the red ones are too coarse and may cause more problems), then wipe clean with a dry cotton swab.

If that doesn't help, open up the printer and find the other end of the ribbon cable connected to the print head carrier. There is often some sort of locking clamp on that connector. Unlock it, pull out the ribbon cable and clean the contacts on that end, then reassemble. (The lock may be a sliding sleeve around the cable (it only comes out about a millimeter) or a flip-up plate. If there is nothing like that, the cable is a friction fit and pulls out with a small amount of force. Some very cheap printers use a permanently attached connection).

Explanation: It is possible that there is a second drive voltage to the print heads that isn't connecting, but its failure doesn't prevent normal communications to the cartridge using the logic level voltage.

My pro905 stopped printing in black although cartridge is showing 50% full. what could be the problem?


Make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges. It could be that your black cartridge needs cleaning. Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on the printer. Press Ink Levels -> press More Options -> select Deep Clean Printhead. The printer will then print a clean cartridge nozzles page. If black ink is not printed on the page, you may need to update your printer's firmware. The update corrects print quality issues on your printer. You can easily download and install the update using this link Lexmark Platinum Pro905 Firmware Update. Download and install the Pro905 update. Thanks.

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

Hp officejet 5510 remove and check black cartridge message and i replaced the black to new one.


Hi Shaharz !

As per the information you have provided, I understand that you are receiving an error "Remove and check black ink cartridge" on the All-In-One display screen. If yes, perform the below steps.

Let me provide you the cause of the issue. The most cause of the issue is that if you are using refilled, re manufacture ink cartridges, cartridge is not fitting properly, wrong cartridge no. However, perform the below steps to resolve the issue.

1. Remove the print cartridges from the printer.
2. Clean the print cartridges using the lint free cloth both the cartridges heads as well as inside the printer.
3.Follow the steps below to power cycle your all-in-one:

a. Verify that the unit is switched on. Disconnect power cable from All-in-One and also from wall outlet.
b. Wait 30 seconds.
c. Plug in the power cable to All-in-One and also to wall outlet.

4. Insert only the black ink cartridge first and check the message on the printer.

If the issue is with the black ink cartridge then the same message will be appears on the printer. If not it will prompt you to insert the color ink cartridge.

Do the same procedure with the color ink cartridge.

If the issue persist, then it shows that the issue is with the black ink cartridge. check the expiry date of the print cartridges and try to replace it.

I believe the issue is with the printer itself. However, the printer using the HP 56 and 57 ink cartridges.

As you have mentioned that you have already replaced the black ink cartridge. Then it confirms that the issue is with the printer. However, you can try resetting of the printer to its default settings and check for the issue.

To reset the printer, perform the below steps.

A semi-full reset will do the following:
The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.

2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.

The printer might be turned off after performing the above steps, so no need to worry about that.

Then turn on the printer and check for the result.


Hope this will helps you a lot!!!

With Regards
Mike.

Hi,

The issue that you are experiencing might be due to various reasons.

The most common reason is an ink cartridge that has one of the following problems:
1.One of the print cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must available.
2.The paper has already been printed on or is colored paper.
3.Protective tape on a new print cartridge has not been removed.
4.Contacts on the print cartridge are not meeting the contacts in the print carriage correctly.
5.Cartridge is remanufactured or refilled. Refilled or remanufactured ink cartridges may have been damaged during the refilling process or have clogged ink nozzles.

6.The print cartridge is defective.

Please check the same and try the below given instructions to get the issue resolved.

Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts. The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth, gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom.

Please perform the step given below to power cycle the unit after removing the print cartridges from the printer:

1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the USB cable from the computer.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only
4. Repeat steps 2-3 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one to your computer.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings :

Note:
A semi-full reset will do the following:
The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.

2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.
This should resolve the issue.

Wish you good luck!

Lawrence
