# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Clogged print heads,I think.


in the printer software there is a function under maintenance to clean the heads.

if it still doesn't work after that, it cheaper to buy a new printer than to fix the head.

been there, done that, have the stretch marks to prove it...

I 450 printer sends command to print but, no print on paper, paper goes through the printer as tho' it is printing but no print


Check your ink cartridges. Even with ink inside, the heads could dry up and not allow new ink to penetrate. Take a dry cloth (rag, not something you wouldn't want stained) and gently wipe it over where the ink shoots out of the cartridge. If you barely get a streak on the cloth, try dampening up the cloth and gently wiping the ink cartridge to see if it loosens up the ink flow.

If there is already plenty of fresh ink coming out of the cartridge, you might have a problem that isn't worth fixing. Repair costs compared to buying new are very similar these days.

Canon i450 Printing issue


this clearly indicates that the printhead of your black cartridge is completely blocked and it needs internal cleaning which cannot be done by printers cleaning commands.the print head has to be removed from the printer and and then cleaned with isoprophyll and soft tissue very slowly and gently.if u dont have a technical idea taking it to the repair center is advisable.

hope this helps.....
thanks.
