Question about Canon PIXMA mini260 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

The roller under the print head has no black stuff on it. Does that mean my printer is dead?

I have tried cleaning the system with nozzle check pattern. The ink is fine. When I print a photo off there is a line on both sides on the paper and it looks like it's from the roller beneath the print head where the ink is located. I could really use someone's help. Please?!

In the properties section where U find the maintenance program is there a choice that says clean bottom roller - try that - also try using a paper towel to soak up any ink that might be on the rollers and if that is the problem just run a bunch of junk pages and the lines should eventually fade away

SOURCE: 3e Black cartridge won't print

I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)

Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).

Hope that helped..

SOURCE: Black Ink Skipping

If you open the printer so the cartridges move to the center and lift the gray handle so you are able to pull the printer head out. Chances are when you do... you will see all the corrosion. Just clean it off and you should be good to go.

Why my printer wont print black?


Perhaps your black ink cartridge is empty? perhaps the nozzles from the print head are blocked, or sometimes just an air bubble in the head, between the cartridge and the nozzles have the same effect.
Also check if nothing os blocked under the print head. Dust or some scraps of paper.
When you are sure you have a filled original ink cartridge in the printer, try to run the clean print head program.
If one or two runs, still don't give any improvement, you could try to clean the head somewhat more drastic.
For that remove the printhead, and look in the place where it was. You se a small nozzle on the bottom. Just one or twe drops of cleaning fluid in the nozzle and start printing again.
This time just send some text pages to the printer and keep on putting the same pages in, till the printer starts printing.
The cleaning fluid comes with packages for refill cartridges or you can get some in an ink shop.

Black and red ink missing on the paper


Blocked print head nozzles
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. Also try - Removing the print head, run it under hot water for 2 mins, then let soak for 10 min. then used a can of compressed air to dry thoroughly. It may fix the blocked nozzles.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

Dear Adrienne,First make sure that the black ink is not empty. If you are sure the black ink is full enough you need to check the print head condition. The print head may be clogged or faulty.
To fix the clogged print head,please perform the following step:
  • Print the nozzle check pattern, access the following menu on LCD: Menu>Maintenance>Nozzle Check. The good nozzle pattern should like below sample image.

10_5_2011_3_51_03_pm.jpg
  • If the print head nozzle missing some color (i.e Black) the perform print head cleaning: Menu>Maintenance>Cleaning. Then print the nozzle check pattern again. Note: you may repeat this step up to 3 times.
  • If the problem still remain,then you should perform Deep Cleaning: Menu>Maintenance>Deep Cleaning.
If you have perform the above steps but the problem still the same,please check whether the black nozzle missing partially or totally. The faulty Purge Unit (ink pump) may cause the same problem. I mean the purge unit does not work properly so the ink cannot flow. Good luck :)

The printer will not print in black ink


Hi

Try going into Printing Preferences in the Kodak Printer Program and perform Maintenance.

You do not say which operating system you are using.

Start > (Control Panel) > (Category View) Printer > right click on the Kodak icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Nozzle Check > Head Cleaning > test print > repeat nozzle check, head cleaning & test printing until problem is gone.

If this does not fix the problem, replace the black cartridge > head cleaning > test print.

You might need to perform head cleaning after every cartridge change.

I hope this helps.

New black cartridge horz lines cleaned head &cartridge roller ; bought new cartridge still lines


Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles:
  1. On the printer control panel, press Menu.
  2. Press the down arrow button until you highlight Clean Cartridge. Press Select. A nozzle page prints, forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles.
  3. Print the document again to verify that print quality has improved.
  4. If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times.
You can also try to align the cartridges:
  1. On the printer operator panel, press Menu.
  2. Press the down arrow button until you highlight Align Cartridge. Press Select.

R200 will not print black color


Sounds like maybe the chips on the cartridges aren't making proper contact. Have you tried removing the black cartridge and reinserting?

How long did it take you to replace all the color cartridges? If it sat uncapped for very long, the black may simply be clogged. Often a few drops of Windex with Ammonia D (not the lemony stuff!) on the purge/park pad will do it.

With the lid up turn it on, and as soon as the heads are unparked pull the plug. Very gently, slide the print head out of the way. With an eyedropper, put a few drops of Windex with Ammonia D on the park pad, enough to make it obviously damp but not overflowing. If it is all gummed up, you'll need to clean it. In that case look here for more detailed instructions:
http://www.polyphoto.com/tutorials/PrintHeadCleaning/

My printer cleaning site is kind of rough, I wrote answers to others and got tired of retyping and just saved a few.

If the park pad is not all gummed up, then gently slide the print head all the way back over the park pad. As you do, the park pad automatically comes up under the print head so don't worry about it drying out. Leave it for a few hours or overnight before plugging it in and turning it on again, then run a cleaning cycle and try a nozzle check.

Never run more than 3 cleaning cycles in a row without printing -something-, even if it is just a nozzle check. And never -ever- move the print head manually while the printer is plugged in.

Have you tried taking the print head out and cleaning all of the gummed up ink out of it. We had our black just quit on us and were just printing pale copy. There was an unbelievable build up on the print head. Another thread about the black not printing any more has a lot of stuff on this.
