SOURCE: won't print from 3ebk cartridge

I take new head - dont work. I put old head from my son`s pixma ip4000 in my Canon MP760 and printer is working!!! Put new head in his printer and don`t work. Problem is with new printheads, THEY DON`T WORK. I change 8 printheads and they work well, but last two printhead (brand new) DON`T WORK. I live in Serbia and I can`t do anything because Canon in Serbia don`t accept problems, they simple said : out of warranty. Maybe you can ask in some other country? I pay 100Eur per printhead here.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus CX5000 blurry or smudged printing

epson uses pigmented ink and compatibles use dyes and thus if the paper is not of good quality then you can have this problem.

do the following

change the paper and try.

As there will be ink in the head and the ink feed tubes , print some 10 -15 copies of all color prints so that the original ink starts to get into the head and then the paper.

this should solve your problem

Also use your printer every 2 -3 days if you dont have any prints then give a noozle check and then switch off the printer. This will avoid the printer from doing a head clean very time you switch on the printer and also the ink will give you more output as there is less amount of head cleaning

bye

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

From Canon Help Files.

Automatic Print Head alignment failed
Possible causes are as follows:
6128_image_6.gif A4 or Letter-sized paper is not loaded on the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, then load one sheet of A4 or Letter-sized paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
Automatic print head alignment cannot be performed using paper from the Cassette. For automatic print head alignment, always load paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder.

6128_image_6.gif Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button on the printer to clear the error, and then print out the nozzle check pattern to examine the print head condition.

For information on how to print a nozzle check pattern, see "Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern."

6128_image_6.gif The Paper Output Slot has been exposed to a strong light source preventing correct Print Head alignment.
Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error and move the printer to a darker location.
After carrying out the above measures, if the problem continues after aligning the Print Head again, press the RESUME/CANCEL button to clear the error, and then perform manual print head alignment. For details on manual print head alignment, see "Manual Print Head Alignment."

After cleaning/maintenance, pages are still blank.


If you have just bought new carts (ink) and installed them into the printer and there is blank pages. and the printer is acting like its printing (moving from left to right) and sending paper out then i would say 99.9% it is defintally the head. On the printers that have the head built in and you insert your carts (ink) into the head and you don't print but very so often this is a common problem with ink printers the head gets clogged. If you are attached to your pinter you can take it to a print shop and have them clean the head (they have to remove it from the printer)
When buy a printer if you dont print alot i always suggust to get a printer where the head is built into the cart (ink) like hp they are more expensive to repalce the ink but you get a new head every time :)
Hope this helps
Steven.

It's probably a blocked jet in the print head but could also be a page registration issue. Try gently wiping the print head with a cotton bud dipped in an alcohol based cleaner

Incomplete patchy printing


Hello,

Please try to do a printer head cleaning. You can do it by getting a small earbud and soak it with a small amount of water. Or try to adjust it by doing an alignment. Usually, the printers have this functionality. Please refer to the user manual.

Print Head Alignment test produces only a blank page.


Yes head probably clogged. You can try cleaning head multiple times, I think this is a pigment ink machine, so get only these carts for it
