SOURCE: Print heads

I've had this problem on and off for quite a while now. I find the printhead problems are due to ink drying overnight and the printer cleaning mechanism failing to wipe it off (that doesn't work properly as the machine ages). An error comes up then that a printhead is 'bad'. I remove the printhead and clean it with a propriatory fluid (which is meths basically)and that cures the problem. However it is vital that after cleaning you wipe the printface and all the contacts dry, and I mean absolutely dry, with a tissue or similar. It must be totally dry or the error is reported again. I periodically give this treatment to all the printheads as the machine doesn't wipe them clean anymore like it did when new. Hope that is of some help.

SOURCE: Printer will not use the magenta color

You did not say what the results of the check pattern showed. Were all the lines present or were there some missing?

If lines are missing, follow the instruction in my previous posts for under head cleaning.

If check pattern is good then you may have a problem with a vacuum pipe. You can download a rescue kit for CX machines to help with this problem from tradebit

SOURCE: toner low, tone life end

There is a gear on the left hand side of the toner to reset the toner count this can cheated be rewinding it. Yes the design is to stop the refillers or at least slow them down a bit. If this fails purchase a new genuine toner but I have seen problems with the switch that resets the toner (Either the spring on the switch has popped off or the main board has failed).

SOURCE: Printer will not use the magenta color

I had the same problem. It is most likely that your print head nozzles are clogged. Your choices are to attempt to manually clean them, or order a new print head from Canon.

Attempt the manual cleaning at your own risk, this doesn't always work. When it does not work, it means your print head is damaged.

To maually clean the print head. Printer cover up (so you can get to the cartridges and print head). Turn the Printer Off. Remove all the cartridges (I put each cartridge in a separate zip lock bag). Then flip up the lever and remove the print head.
Now heat (don't boil) distilled water (Iused a good sized cook pan and a plastic measuring cup to pour the water). Find a container you can soak the print head in (I used a deep alluminum baking pan). Pour the hot (not boiling) distilled water over the print head molding where the cartridges seat down (hold the printhead over your diposable alluminum pan). Then dunk the molded print head part into the pan numerous times. When the water gets dark change it (be carefuill not to stain the sink). Then slowly pour the hot distilled over the print head (opposite side from where the cartidges seat in). Eventually no ink will be in the water. Set the print head on a dry paper towel, and let it dry for 24 hours or longer. Reinstall the print head, then the catridges. If it worked, your true colors will return. It make take up to 15-20 photos to get all the ink catridges flowing-be patient. You can also just wait 24 hours after re-installing the cartridges, and hopefully it will take less photos to see the correct color match.

Never keep printing when a cartridge is low or out.
Print a few prints every week. Not printing for weeks causes the printheead and the ink flow to clog!

Good luck. I just recovered my S820 and my i900D using the above cleaning method. Like everything else, your mileage may vary! It cost me $1.29 for distilled water and about an hours worth of time!

Why is my Canon PIXMA MG6220 skipping lines when it is printing?


Assuming that you aren't running out of ink, it probably needs either a good print head cleaning (beyond that the software does) or a print head replacement, if you model had replaceable print heads. My experience with Canon printers has been mixed, but some of them have replaceable print heads and some don't. Make sure you're not running out if ink before you proceed with the following.

You could try this first:

1. Get some distilled water.
2. Remove the print head and remove the ink tanks.
3. Get a shallow cup or dish and put the print head in it.
4.Add distilled water to just barely immerse the print head only.
5. Add several drops of the distilled water to the "inside" part of the print head in each color section.
6. Leave for several hours or overnight.
7. Remove the print head and discard the water, clean your cup or dish. If the print head is fixed and not removable, go to step 14.
8. CAREFULLY blot, do not rub, the bottom of the print head.
9. Run the "deep clean" print head cleaning cycle once.
10. Run the test print or nozzle check to see if it is now printing without white bars (skipping parts of the lines.
11. If this works, then do your print head alignment.
12. If this doesn't work, you might look into buying a special print head cleaning kit that has a syringe, a tube (or tubing), and an adapter or two in order to allow you to inject the special cleaning solution into and through the print head, doing whatever the directions tell you to do.
13. If that doesn't work, then see if you can buy a replacement print head.
14.If you weren't able to remove the print head for cleaning, then it may be time to consider it not worth the trouble and replacing it with another printer. I like the Brother brand of inkjet printers since they use much less ink during the cleaning cycle and some of the models have optional high-capacity ink tanks.

To avoid this happening in the future, make sure you use your printer at least every few days. Print something that has every color in it so that it keeps each part of the print head from drying out. Keep in mind that every time your printer runs a cleaning cycle, you use up quite a bit of ink for most brands of printers, so if you replace your printer, consider a Brother printer. It's not that Canon makes all bad inkjet printers. They've had some that were apparently problematic in the past (like the BJC-6000, which I went through 3 of those before the warranty expired), but they use a lot of ink when they run their print head cleaning cycle whenever the firmware determines that it needs to run the cycle.

If you are successful in getting the printer to print lines without missing bands of color, then keep the printer by all means. Consider getting some generic replacement ink tanks so that you can afford to run the printer every few days. Many printers are sold at a very low price because the company expects to make more money on replacement ink tanks. The lowest priced ones seem to use more ink, too.

Also, if you don't need color printing, consider a black and white laser printer. Before buying, check the price of the consumables -- toner at the very least, and if there are any replaceable parts other than the toner cartridge, find out how long those are supposed to last before replacement and how much they cost. Your first toner cartridge might be a "starter cartridge" which may not even be half full of toner, so buy a spare toner cartridge when you buy the laser printer. Some brands have a rather high cost per page because the replacement toner cartridges cost a lot.

Alignment failed when run


If Printer heads health condition is not good, alignment wont completes..
Four individual cartridges & Two print heads, each print head prints two colors.. Black& Yellow, Cyan & Magenta.. Verify which color is not printing properly(Color missing Or white bands)..

Hello

There are many possible causes. You'll have to do a bit of detective work to find your particular problem. you're either getting unwanted toner, or the printing process is being interrupted.

The photosensitive drum can get a mark or a spot or even a damaged area. This usually presents as a regular area which repeats, going down the print, rather than a streak It may be possible to clean the drum with a soft tissue -- perhaps with the addition of a little Isopropyl alcohol. If you have a replacement drum, try that. In most cases the drum is part of the cartridge, but not always.
Loose toner in the system.

If your drum is leaking, or you've spilled some toner inside the printer (perhaps after shaking the cartridge to get more life out of it) the excess toner may cling to the paper in streaks and get fused onto it. The cure is a good vacuum clean of the insides.

Sometimes a small corner of a sheet of paper (or similar) can get caught in the workings of the printer, This can obscure part of the optical (especially with LED printers) and cause a blank streak in the printing. Dust and toner on the LED head can cause similar problems and fuzzy printing. Tissue and alcohol again!

quite often inkjet heads will dry up and clog. try a clean heads sequence in the printer properties panel. do this until it prints the clean nozzle page properly. If the ink cartridges have the print head attached to them (some dont) you can dab them on a paper towel with windex or vinegar until they show a nice clean line when dabbed. if you cant get the print heads out , then you just need to continue running the clean nozzel application until it prints the test nozzel job properly. This is the reason I will not buy any more inkjet printers. only Toner based machines. cheers.

IT IS PRINTING WITH A REDDISH SHADOW BEHIND THE COLOUR THAT SHOULD BE PRINTED


You have one of two problems. Either your magenta cartridge is bad (which I suspect) or you have toner built up on your fusing assembly. More than likely, it's a bad toner cartridge (ESPECIALLY IF A REMANUFACTURED) as this printer is famous for having the wiper cleaning blades in the cartridges go bad. Try replacing the cartridge first. Hope that helps you. :)

Laserwriter 8500 "dirty" print outs


Toner bubbles are characterized by large blotches of color toner on
printed pages caused by color toner leaking from cartridges directly
onto the transfer drum. Solve the problem of toner bubbles by checking the manufacturing codes on the toner cartridges and replacing cartridges as needed. Compatible carts are notorious for this so don't use them.

Heat-stamped on the toner cartridge, opposite the label-end of the
cartridge, is a manufacturing code. If a portion of the code does not
match the list below, replace the toner cartridge.
Use toner cartridges that contain any of the following manufacturing
codes:
 9I
 9J
 9K
 9L
 any cartridge that begins with the numbers 0 through 6 in place of
the 9
