Hello, our C66 printer won't print. It has been unused for about 2 years, we've put all new ink cartridges in, downloaded the latest drivers, and nothing gets printed. You can go through all the test...


The most likely cause is the print head nozzles are blocked with dried ink and inserting new ink cartridges won't fix this problem. You need a new print head.
Print heads are not cheap, you may be better putting your money towards a new printer.

Started printing light / dark blue bands instead of same shade. Tried cleaning but no different. Thanks.


Do a proper head clean.

Remove the cartridges and put them aside.

Remove Print head taking care not to touch the metal parts.

Boil some water, pour one quarter inch of boiling water into saucer.

Place the part of the print head where the ink comes out in the water.

Give it a few seconds, you will see the ink coming out into the water.

Sit the print head on some paper towel with the part where the ink comes out on the towel and let the excess water be absorbed by towel..

Replace print head in printer, taking care not to touch the metal parts.

Place cartridges back in print head.

Do some test runs to check the condition of the head, you may have to do a head clean or two.....

If that doesn't work try a new blue cartridge.

Usually works on my machine.

I have a canon multi pass f80 printer. it is several years old (10?) i love it and have had NO problems. last night i went to print and my black ink has a new cartridge and there is no ink coming out...i...


First you need to ensure that this is not a driver problem, by reinstalling drivers and testing the printer on a different computer.

Also ensure that ink cartridges are OK, try replacement inks.

If the problem is not a software problem, and the printer is recognised by computer, and the printout is coming as a blank or faded page, then you usually have a faulty or clogged printhead.

Try first performing print head cleaning procedure from printer tools, that may not fix the problem, but do the cleaning a couple of times, just in case.

If the print head is clogged, that can be fixed soaking the print head in isopropyl alcohol overnight.

If still no luck, then the printhead must be replaced, here is the part: Canon MULTI-PASS F-80 Print Head $61.00

New ink in printer but will not put ink on paper.


It sounds like blocked nozzles to me, providing you're SURE you have good cartridges, properly installed (you did take the yellow plastic tapes off the vents before you installed the cartridges of course).

You can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If nothing, repeat the process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

Uh... New Cartridge, Cleaned Heads... No Print?


Hello irishmantx
It sounds like you are still blocked up. If you have already ran nozzel clean 4 or 5 times I would try soaking the ink cartridges where the ink is discharged. If you go to www.inkmizer.com you can pick up a good, safe, solution just for this problem. They also send you very good instructions. I would be very, very, very careful about getting anywhere near the printing heads especially with liquids. This is an easy way to totally waste your printer.
Good luck, Davecapt

New ink cartridge won't work.


Guys I had this problem with black ink. It appears that the internal print head ports were clogged with ink. Try removing the print head and washing it in alcohol- when I did this i had clumps of congealed ink coming out of the tiny ports. The print head has two small screws underneath that I also removed and cleaned the ports inside by use of a syringe and alcohol. After I put the print head back together, dried it and ran an auto alignment - it all seems good now.
