Try a Q-tip wet with rubbing alcohol. Very gently rub the print head wher it contacts the paper. You will most likely have to unplg the printer to prevent the cariage from returning to its home possition.

Printing blank pages


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.

When printing text in black ink, some lines of the text are missing. I've tried doing a deep cleaning 4 times and replaced the black ink cartridge. Have also tried unplugging unit, but that didnt help...


You didn't mention what printer was doing this. HP, Lexmark, Epson? It sounds like your print head is clogged with dried ink. If you can remove print head you can sit it on a damp cloth with the nozzle of the print head in contact with the damp cloth and hope that the cloth will draw out the dried ink.

The printer pulls the paper through and sounds like it is printing but nothing on the paper. Have tried the clean, deep clean, nozzle clean, print head alignment but nothing works.


Two possible solutions:
1) remove ink crg from the head, remove head and soake the nozzles ( small round holes ) in water few times and put it on absorbing cloth for a while to dry out.
Put it back in and do the cleaning few times.
2) replace the print head and purge unit.What isnt worthed.

Hi.. My Brothers MFC-290C printer is printing in pink. I need it to print black


Have you tried to clean the printer heads? usually there is a software application that will offer the ability to clean print heads, align the printer, shows the estimated ink level. This sounds like only one shade of your color head is coming thru.

My epson stylus c84 printer does not print


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The printer won't operate properly if it's tilted. Place it on a stable and flat surface. Please do not leave your printer turned on when not in use to avoid print heads being clogged. In the instant case the ink cartridges can also leak into the printer. If the print heads are clogged then run the head cleaning and alignment utility. The print head nozzles may also need cleaning.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

R1800 head streaks


I have been plagued by the same problem - the nozzles don't appear clogged - yet on heavier media there is a definite abrasive sound - and its leaving horizontal bands. After many cleanings with no luck I tried cleaning the heads with a bunch of Q-Tips lightly coated in Windex. After removing a ton of black deposits - it didn't immediately fix the problem; frustrated I turned the printer off. The next morning when the clean-heads-on-power-up kicked in - I noticed a large amount of ink collected in the vacuum sponge. It seams the bit of reside left over from the cleaning may have finally dissolved what I can only guess was a large ink deposit that had hardened and was striking the media when heavier stock was loaded. At any rate - no more abrasive sounds - and more importantly no more horizontal banding.

To clean I disconnected the power when the head was traveling. Then the head was free to move as I gently tried using the Q-Tips to clean the heads.

Hope this helps.
