Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This is a common problem with this printer engine. It is because of the design. The print head is seperate from the cartridges, and therefore is never replaced, unlike say an HP, where the print head is integrated into the cartridge and is replaced everytime you replace a cartridge. The only thing you can try is to remove all the cartridges, and there should be a small lever on the ( i think ) right side of the assembly that they go into. You should then be able to remove the printhead assembly. If you take it, hold it upright and dip the printhead, (just the shiny metal part on the bottom where the ink goes onto the paper) into some near boiling water, briefly, ( kind of dunk it ) and then depress onto a slightly damp paper towel, and repeat process until no more ink shows on paper towel, then reinstall into the printer soon ( after drying it off with a paper towel) and then clean the cartidges with the printer software. What happens is over time, the print head becomes clogged with ink, and then shows a degraded print. Canon made this print engine to be disposable. I have, however, recovered many of these print heads, as I am a cartridge and printer technician. Good luck!
