Question about Canon S520 InkJet Photo Printer
I really like the s520 printer. It was working perfectly when I turned it off for the night. When I turned it on the next morning everything seemed to be okay until I tried to print a document and there was no ink deposited on the paper in any color. All the ink reservoirs are full. I cleaned the print head but still no ink on the paper. The printer operates normally the paper feeds like before but no ink. I bought a new print head thinking that it was bad but with the new print head I still get blank paper. When I put the print head on a tissue paper ink transfers to the tissue so I know that its getting ink. Could you give me a clue as to what the problem is? Like I said I don?t want to give up this printer as I like the way it operates and I have a large supply of ink tanks on hand. Now it appears I have an extra print head. Any help you could give would be appreciated. Thanks, ICE
If you have tried to print a nozzle check page and no ink has been deposited on the page, then it might be a bad logic board inside the printer or a faulty purge unit. Both parts are relatively expensive to purchase. You might be better off looking for a used Canon s520, i550, i850, pixma 3000, or similar model to use the remaining ink cartridges if you can locate one in good condition and not more than 40 USD. xcd187
