Will only print yellow, black and photo black-- red cartridge shows ink in window and I just refilled blue-- cartridge was only out of printer a few hours. I've cleaned the print head a number of...


There are a few things here that will do this. One is the cartridge is a smart cartridge and unless you reset the chip it either won't print or shows low. If you filled it before then this shouldn't be it. If you have refilled the cart more than a few times they sometimes just stop. This is either the ink has jelled inside or the little feeder sponge is dried out. If you changed ink brands sometimes the ink reacts with the old stuff and jells.The other is the jet or any feeder tubes are plugged with dried ink. Usually happens if you haven't printed for a while. You can try running the cleaning cycle and it will take quite a few of these sometimes before it starts working.

There are a few more tricks for cleaning such as using white vinegar to dissolve dried ink but that's a bit of the messy side sometimes. Usually we have just had to buy a replacement cartridge after spending the time on this. We eventually just got rig of our ink jets and got some of the cheaper color laser printers. Wish we had done that sooner.

Put new roll in printer and paper feeds through then goes back out again


The printer should accept print paper ready for feed commands when computer sends jobs with clicks. A paper feeder tray may be clogged, attempt to open compartments to ascertain for misaligned or adjusted entrapment areas. Paper feeder adjustments that are tightened least allows feeder processing while loosened paper feeder clips allows several print papers at a time. Select the appropriate adjustment for the papers. Second, printers that run out of ink display sensitive malfunctions either as inability to feed paper when available. Ascertain that printer ink is available.

I have a Sharp AL-1631. The single copies made face down on the glass are fine. The multiple copies made on the automatic feeder have vertical lines running through them. Can you please assist me.


This is caused by the adf scan glass needing to be cleaned. If you look just to the left of the large glass you will see a thin strip of glass encased in plastic. You need to clean this glass. It may look clean but this glass is only used when using the feeder and sometimes any ink spots or dirt are not visible. If you only get the lines when using the feeder the problem is on this strip of glass.

Canon IP 90 clogged printhead nozzles. How to remove printhead?


Hi there,

To avoid drying of the Print Head and clogging of the nozzles, note the following.
*When you turn off the Machine
Follow the procedure below to turn off the machine.
1)Press the ON/OFF button to turn off the machine,
2) Confirm that the POWER lamp has gone out.
This takes a few seconds or as long as 20 seconds.
3) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
If you are using a power outlet strip, you can switch off instead.
When you press the ON/OFF button to turn off the machine, the machine automatically puts a protective cap on the Print Head to prevent the ink from drying. If you remove the power cord or switch off the power outlet strip before the POWER lamp goes out, this capping will not be done properly, causing the Print Head to dry and clog.

* When You are not Using the Machine for a Long Time.
When you are not using the machine for a long time, print or copy in both black and white and in color or pertorm Print Head Cleaning, about once a month to prevent degradation of the Print Head.
Numerous nozzles are installed in the Print Head for high -precision printing. Just as the uncapped tip of a ballpoint pen or marker becomes dry and unusable if it is not used for a long period of time, the print nozzles becomes blocked by dried ink. Periodically printing or cleaning of the Print Head can prevent this blockage.
Note :
*If the printed area is traced with a highlight pen or paint-stick or stained with water or sweat, ink may blur depending in the paper.
*If the print head nozzles get clogged , printouts will become faint or particular colors will not be printed properly.

When Printing Becomes Faint or Colors are Incorrect.
When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect even if the ink remains in the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Print the nozzle check pattern to confirm the condition of the nozzles and then perform the Print Head Cleaning.
Note : Before performing maintenace

*Open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and make sure that all lamps for the ink tanks are lit red.
-If any one of the lamps is flashing slowly, the associated ink tank is running low. You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you to have replacement ink tank available.
-If any one of the lamps is flashing fast, the associated ink tank is emty. Replace the ink tank.
If an ink tank is flashing fast even though ink remains in that ink tank, it is inserted into the wrong position. Make sure that the ink tank of the correct coloris inserted in each position matching the label.
-If the ink lamp is not lit, the tank is not set properly. Press the <PUSH> mark on the ink tank until the tank clicks into place. Make sure that all the packaging material is peeled off the ink tank.

*Increase the print quality setting in the printer settings.

5) Check the condition of the Print Head.
a) Print the nozzle check pattern to check the print head condition.
If a particular color is not printed properly, replace the ink tank of that color.
b) If the print head nozzles are still not cleaned, turn off the machine and perform another Print Head Deep Cleaning after 24 hours.
c) If this does not solve the problem, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

Run Remove Ink Smears from the Troubleshooting menu. Try running the jetfix snippet found on Xerox website under downloads. It sounds like you may have a defective printhead telling it to spit out some magenta ink at the wrong time.

You're right. There is probably debris on the glass where the paper passes through. It's a common problem. You'll have to raise up the scanner so that you can see the glass. Then clean it off and you're back on business.

Print result at 1st line ok..2nd line become blur..its alternate till end of printing


Replace the ink cartridge.
The cartridge is so wide that it can print 2 lines at a time, and the upper part of it is probably partially clogged. That's why every 2'nd line is blurred, and the rest is ok.
