The first 2 things I would do are check that you are using genuine Canon cartridges and run a head clean on the printer.

Head cleaning options are usually available under printing preferences for the device.

SOURCE: Printer won't print.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: RE:Cannot print in documents

It's one of two problems, either the nozzles in the cartridge are clogged or your printing preferences are set to "print in grayscale." To clear the nozzles try running the printer through a "deep cleaning" cycle from the printer's maintenance screen (available from the printer's properties). To check the printing preferences go to the printer's properties, as well, from Start > Control Panel > Printers & Faxes > right-click on the printer and choose Printing Preferences. Make sure to uncheck "Print In Grayscale."

Blank pages printing


Sounds like the printhead is pretty severely dried. As standard cleaning cycles haven't helped I would recommend picking up some LC900 cleaning cartridges from eBay etc. These are cartridges filled/partially filled with cartridge flush and break down ink inside the printer.

Most of them contain a mix of ink and flush and you can carry on printing as usual. Given the severity of the dried/blocked printhead you have I would recommend just running cleaning cycles, but leave 10 minutes or so between cleans to avoid overheating the printhead.

How to fix problem, ink jets out towards back of inner printer instead of down on to paper


I would not worry about the ink on the inside of the printer. This is almost certainly just waste ink that has splattered here during printing/cleaning. The printhead is forced to face directly down inside the printer and if it was not this would cause the cartridge to be rejected and stop any printing.

If your pages are coming out blank I would recommend taking the following steps:

  1. First off please run any printer head cleaning cycles available from your printer software and check the quality of your prints.
  2. Fold a piece of kitchen tissue or any other non fibrous tissue and dab it under a tap to make a small damp patch. For best results make sure the water is warm.damp-paper-tissue.jpg
  3. Take the cartridge out of the printer and hold the damp patch over the printhead for 30-60 seconds.hp-300.jpg hp-300-on-tissue.jpg
  4. You should now hopefully have a small ink soaked patch on the tissue with traces of all the relevant colours. ink-patch.jpg
  5. Then wipe the printhead several times on the dry part of the tissue and you should start to see the colours come through. wipes.jpg
  6. Reinstall and run one more head cleaning cycle and with any luck you should be ready to print.
Sadly these cartridges are getting on a bit now and it is entirely possible that the printhead of the cartridge has stopped working entirely or is irreversibly clogged. If the cartridge has been purchased recently contact whoever you purchased it from. if not I would recommend buying a new black/colour ink cartridge.

Replaced ink cartridges and now printer will not print black and sometime


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

All the pages I print are blank. There is sufficient ink the print preview shows the image but the actual print out is blank


Sounds like your print heads are clogged. This is quite common. Go into your printer's menu and find the maintenance menu and follow the steps to clean your print heads. Run the process everal times until the prints are 100%. Then run a printhead alignment. Regardless of whether your not your ink is full, if cleaning the heads several times does not solve the issue, put new ink cartridges in because you may have bad cartridges. If that doesn't work, you've got bigger issues, contact the manufacturer.

Epson cx7800 won't detect magenta ink.


It seems likely that either your magenta cartridge is faulty (or empty - the ink monitor doesn't show how much ink is actually left, only the amount used subtracted from a presumed full cartridge when new). The first thing to be sure of is that you have a good cartridge - install a new one. You can save the existing one for later use once things are OK again. If this produces no results, you can now be reasonably confident that you have blocked magenta nozzles. Note that putting in a cartridge and taking it out again several times will aggravate the situation by getting air into the system.

You can now 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.

I replaced both ink cartridges for the printer, won' print.


Please follow the procedure your printer has which forces it printer to clean the print heads.
I have experience of other epson stylus models.  I have previously spoken to epson about this exact problem.  Repeating the head cleaning process a minimum 5 times cleared the problem.
Running head clean multiple times in succession builds up pressure in the print heads - causing (usually new) cartridges to work correctly.
kind regards
