Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have a Canon I9950 printer it started playing up and despite head cleaning in warm water etc as recommended still did not print all the colours. I bought a new print head and new canon inks (always used canon no 3rd party inks) nothing shows with the group 2- Cyan, Magenta & yellow Some posting suggest a tube has come adrift and the printer needs taking apart. My printer is a UK version with the CD tray. I have tried removing the covers without success.

I would check to make sure that the contacts on the cartridgew sensors are not fouled with dried ink. A q-tip with rubbing alcohol should help to remove the dried ink if that is in fact the problem.

SOURCE: Magenta printing as yellow

Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!

SOURCE: Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!

Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!

Thanks for reading!

SOURCE: Canon Pixma yellow color problem

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

I can not get Yellow to print


Personally I would just take out the print head and flush it through with warm water. When it is clean, add all the inks and run it through the clean print heads utility, until the test sheet looks correct. Another point, do not ever switch off the printer, as it cannot periodically clean itself. If it cannot clean itself the print heads can dry up and become clogged.

Suddenly no ink coming from five wells (BK, R, G,


I have the same problem but it's only with the black ink, I removed the print head unit and run it under the hot tap till th ewater ran clear, then i soaked it in hot water and again run fresh water through it till it ran clear then left it in a bath of alcohol, i just used whiskey, but wouldn't recommend drinking it after, or before for that matter, I felt there was nothing to lose if it was a faulty print head as they are about £95 new. I had already run several deep cleaning programs and replaced the inks, but literally no black ink at all was printing. I havn'e tried it yet as it's still soaking, but I have also stripped the cover off the priinter and am trying to clean otu the waste ink tanks and absorbant pads, it's far to expensive a printer to just chuck out so here's hoping

It doesn't print in black but prints in color


Hi, To ensure this is only an issue with the black, I recommend printing off a nozzle check. This will show you if this problem is effecting any of the other colours.
To print a nozzle please refer to chapter 12 page 115 of the manual,
If colours are missing I recommend cleaning the print head. You have two options for cleaning the print head a normal clean and a deep clean, start by doing a normal clean if required try doing a deep clean.
You can download the manual here:

Canon pixma iP8500 won't print, blank pages


The colour cartridge is badly clog. put tissue with warm/hot water below the head, wait for about 30 minutes. If tissue is coloured, the dried ink inside head is out. Is it not, do suction from the outlet pipe of head cleaning mechanics.

Canon i9950 colour deterioration


You can try changing cartridge but that would help little since the print head on canon printers are on the printer itself. Although you can give it a shot first since that would definitely be the cheaper option.

Colour printing


If its a Canon printer try this.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.

Double printing


Despite much deep cleaning, the printer is still not printing correctly - it misses out colours, letters etc. Do we need a new head, and how do we fix it please.
