SOURCE: Canon MP500 Printer head error

Hello,

Print heads for nearly all printers are rated at 2 years. You may also need to clean the tube from the resevoir at the ink supply to the cartridge and clean the working resevoir on the cartridge as well. If you are up to this challenge there is a how-to at your manufacturer's web site or you can have a tech do it. Most people, when they realize how inky you will be getting choose to have a tech do this.

It is best to use 100% denatured alcohol, from your hardware store, to clean these parts and tubing. But, you must take precautions.

DO NOT USE DENATURED ALCOHOL UNLESS YOU READ AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BACK OF THE CAN.

I'm not kidding about the precautions. I do all this stuff outside when there is a breeze in the air and then I stay up wind of my work.

If you have any questions whatsoever just feel free to comment back to me.

Regards,
Worldvet

Press the button on the right hand side of the printer. Lift the lid, pull up the little gray handle. Rock the print head container a bit and you'll see a little metal bar. Grab that and pull straight up.

Black ink in printer not printing out but color ink prints out fine


The black print head is faulty or blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Re: Canon Pima MP500 Printer.Despite running cleaning settings for print head and rollers ectc,I am still getting a 1cm wide line of black ink through the length of the reverse side of printed pages....


On back side of printed paper?

It means that you have an ink in paper path, i would ques on registration roller (long black roller which you can see when you open the printer cover).


Try to print 20-30 white sheets or similar to get rid of stripes

Print head clog and I use half my ink unclogging them


Hi,

Thanks for using FixYa!

There is indeed another way to unclog your print head without wasting ink. All you need to do is to take out the cartridge then get some alcohol (not liquor but the antiseptic type like ethyl or isopropyl used for treating wounds or cleaning stuff) drop around 3 drops of alcohol into the ink inlet and leave it overnight. This should declog and clean the print head. I hope this helps because it did work for me.

Have a nice day.

Black won't print


Hi,
Alcohol is probably the most effective and the strongest
head cleaner I would dare to use, without dissolving the
plastic. You may even try soaking the head in alcohol
overnight or try using a bath style ultrasonic cleaner,

but ultimately, if the head is really plugged up, or if the
electronic firing mechanisms inside the head are damaged
you are probably out of luck.

Replacing the heads may be possible, but hardly cost effective.
Some heads are part of the ink cartridge, others are separate.

You may also try to wiggle the ribbon cable feeding the
moving print head to make sure it has a good connection.

Finally you may find that buying a new cheap printer for $50
is more cost effective than wasting tons of ink, trying to
clean the one you have.

I have had many printers from every brand imaginable,
ranging from $45 to $1200, and I find that the more
expensive the printer is, the more of a let down it is,
and the sooner the ink becomes obsolete.

My favorite is the last one, which came with 6 full sized
ink cartridges for $65. When the ink runs out, i will replace
it with another new printer. :)

Also if you do mostly B&W printing, an $89.00 laser printer
is a far better investment. It prints faster, with better quality
and lasts for ever. No ink covered hands, no headaches.

1) Make sure the tape is removed from the new cartridge (and there are no blockages to allow the ink to flow.


2) The heads can become blocked if the printer is not used frequently or if the printer is powered off by other than the printer on/off switch.

3) The printer needs to go through a cleaning/priming cycle when it powers down and if not powered off correctly the print heads can become blocked.

4) To unblock your heads try several cleaning sessions (I.E. 5-7) if not more. Always ensure that there is sufficient ink before the cleaning sessions as the heads can be damaged if you attempt to use the printer without ink. The ink is not only used for printing but as a lubricant for the heads and if your try to print without ink it is equavalent to driving a car without oil. The print head will eventually fail.

IF this doesn't work you may need to use a specialized cleaner for print heads that can be purchased from "Inkjet Cartridge" resellers.

Check your printer for warranty, as they will typically change it without too much hassle.

P.S. Make sure the tape is removed from the new cartridge (and there are no blockages to allow the ink to flow.
