Maybe the flat connector, that comes from circuit board to cartridge craddle is disconnected !

Try to dismantle carefully, and check for small flat connectors.

Won"t print

Canon printer.....won't print.

Well, that can be tough to figure out without some more info. :o)

1. What model of cannon printer, Is it ink jet or laser?
2. What is your computer's operating system? (32 or 64 bit too)
3. Have you installed the drivers for your operating system and made sure they are updated?
4. Have you changed the ink/toner cartridges lately?
5. Have you not printed for a long time? Ink jets especially will get dried up fast if you don't print regularly?
6. If you have the printer drivers installed have you tried uninstalling them and then reinstalling?

How to Repair Canon Printer

Canon printers are available in various models, such as laser, inkjet,photo and all-in-one model which can copy, scan, print and faxtogether. Though, Canon is one of the most trusted brands when it comesto printers, but like all other technical products, its printers canalso ditch you when you are in the most urgent need.

Printer is a good companion if it works nicely, but a worse foe when itstops giving the desired results. Here are some of the tips that youcan follow to fix your Canon printer and get the best out of it.

General Issues

Paper jam: It’s a frequent mishap when more than one sheet ofpaper stuck together in the feeding mechanism. You can manually liftthe cover and remove it.

Ink level: Your cartridge has no ink and you may be getting no print except a blank paper.

Clogged cartridges: This is the most common fault, when yourcartridge head is clogged with dry ink. You can repair it with simplecommand as: Control Panel> Printer>Right Click>Properties>Maintenance> Clean Cartridges.

Driver failure: Software bugs, errors or conflicts may arise onaccount of corrupted printer’s software and hardware. You need toreinstall printer drivers and software. Try to get best compatibledriver for installation.

Alternatively, you can update your printer driver as: "Control Panel> Printers > Right Click > Properties > Update Driver".

Canon-Specific Issues

Waste Ink Error: Here you need to take some setting steps. Pressmenu option of your printer followed by scan/copy to access Servicemore option. Now, press the right arrow to explore "NVRAM". Set ABS-Mlevel to 0. Set ABS-P level to 0. Press "Stop" to exit.

Invalid Cartridge Message: Turn off your printer besidesunplugging the power cable. Recover the cartridges and the print headand dip them in lukewarm water to remove clotted ink. Allow them to dryand wipe with a tissue. Now, reset them in your printer and run thecartridge alignment.

E0D02 error: Ensure your cartridge as well as the attachedsender strip is free from moisture and dust. The sender strip islocated behind the rubber drive belt and runs horizontally across themachine. Make a regular practice to wipe it with a soft cloth.

Learn some printer etiquette's to avoid above issues:

Keep patience: Don’t give print commands for multiple jobs at asingle time, as the printer take the time as per the size of the printjob requested earlier.

Use desired paper: Abstain from printing on card stock, photo paper, etc; use only laser jet paper.

Restrict print jobs beyond 50 pages: Don’t over burden yourprinter. It is advised to print not more than 50 pages in one singlego. Avoid too much color ink: Black and white laser printers are thebest as they need the least maintenance.

We repalced the black ink cartridge but it wont print black

Most ink jet cartridges have "multiple" protectors to keep the ink from leaking or drying out and the electrical connectors from getting damaged before they are installed into the printer. You should be removing a plastic cap device for the ink, and typically, a piece of clear tape that protects some copper traces on the back of the cartridge. Make sure both are removed. If it still does not work take it back to who you bought it from and have them check to make sure there is ink in your new cartridge. Typically, you can shake it and hear a liquid sound. Good luck.

Canon all in one printer refill ink cartridges

i have just filled my mx 310 with the jet tec refills as instructed....but do not insert the rubber bungs...instead put some celotape over the filling holes... then with a needle...pierce the celotape where the hole is( pin *****).... this set up is now able to breathe as originally designrd. Mine prints fine now this has been done (trial and error), but i might try better quality ink next fill. Its also wise to use glossy paper 230gsm or over for good results.

Printing Problem

Cleaning cycles use ink. So it's no wonder it got worse, the ink level went down. Are you 100% sure that the black cart is full? they can give a wrong reading on occasion. what makes you think its full? Could be also that you need to replace the head- the part the cart fits into. generally they don't last more than 18 months.] Another possibility is that the black is indeed full, but dry. Put a wet sponge to the nozzle, see if it soaks up a decent amount of ink. Good luck
