SOURCE: lost B&W printing

Hi marc, it sounds like the normal clean has not eliminated the clog you may have in back printhead. I need to know if you refil your own cartridges or not to be specific, but basically you need to remove the black ink cartridge, and clean the printers heads yourself, and right down where cartridge sits wth cotton buds and proper cleaning solution. Wipe the surface of cartridge if it has the printhead attatched (some printers have the printhead on them, some have it on the cartridge. Replace ink, reset black ink level, cancel the alignment for now, go straight to printing. Print a test page and see how it goes.

SOURCE: Canon i560 won't print black text anymore

I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

SOURCE: Stripes on Images only - Text OK

Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.

Tried to print something today after not using printer for about 3 weeks. First go all colours were present but streaky. Did the nozzle alignment but on testing found that Magenta was completely missi


Hi Mandy
1) confirm there is ink in the magenta cartridge first - by removing it from printer and looking through the ink 'window'.
If you can't see the ink level, it's either empty or very close to it. If so, replace the cartridge.
2) If ink level looks ok, install it back in printer then set out a full page of magenta (or red) background or large graphic and print few pages on high print quality setting until the magenta starts to print. This works better than printhead cleaning/deep cleaning because it wastes less ink.
3) If it still doesn't print red after 2-3 pages, the printhead is blocked. Take it out and rinse under hot water tap. Keep washing it until only clean water is coming out. Shake any water off then DRY the electrical contacts really well. Don't install a wet printhead back in printer - or you may damage it. Run one or two deep cleans and print a nozzle check. With bit of luck all colours will work now...

good luck!

Stylus r300 printing orange photos why


Follow these steps to clean the print head from the printer's control panel:
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing, and the red
b error light is off.
If the red light is flashing or on, you may need to replace the ink cartridge.
2. Press the down button to highlight More Options, then press OK.
3. Use the up or down button to highlight Head Cleaning, then press OK.
4. To begin cleaning, press OK.
While cleaning, the printer makes noise and you see a progress bar on the control panel
display. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds.
Caution: Do not turn off the printer or interrupt the cleaning process.
5. When the cleaning is done, run a nozzle check to confirm the print head nozzles are
clean.
Make sure letter-size plain paper is loaded in the printer, then press Stop. The nozzle check pattern prints.
6. If the pattern has gaps or missing dots, press Stop to clean the print head again.
If the nozzle check pattern looks correct, press OK to finish.

Note: Run nozzle check at least three consecutive times. If you do not see any improvement and you have replaced the ink cartridges, your product may require service.

Canon i470d will not print color, checked status and settings.


Hi

Check the Printing Preferences

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Canon i470d icon > Printing Preferences > General

Select Colo(u)r Printing > Apply > OK.

Also try Nozzle Check and Print Head Cleaning:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Canon i470d icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance.

If these do not work, change the colou cartridge and then perform Head Cleaning and/or Nozzle Check and Head Cleaning, as appropriate.

I hope this helps.

You may need to do Head Cleaning after every cartridge change.

Canon Pixma MP620 problem. It prints with a thick white lines going horizontally, so that the texts are faded out and not legible.


You probably need to run maintenance on the printer.
On the LCD do the following: (1)Select Settings on the HOME screen, and press the OK button. (2) Select Maintenance, and press the OK button. (3) Select Nozzle check pattern, and press the OK button. (4) Select Yes, and press the OK button. The nozzle check pattern will be printed and two pattern confirmation screens appear on the LCD.
This will tell you if the nozzles are out of alignment or not.Regardless you should not run the deep cleaning on the print heads. From the LCD do the following and make sure you have several sheets of paper in the printer;
(1) Select Settings on the HOME screen, and press the OK button. (2) Select Maintenance, and press the OK button. (3) Select Deep cleaning, and press the OK button. (4) Select Yes, and press the OK button. The machine starts cleaning the Print Head deeply. Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the deep cleaning of the Print Head. This takes about 1 minute 30 seconds. (5) Select Yes, and press the OK button. The nozzle check pattern will be printed. (6) Check the nozzle check pattern. See Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern. - If a particular color is not printed properly, replace the ink tank of that color. See Replacing an Ink Tank. - If the problem is not resolved, turn off the power and clean the Print Head deeply again after 24 hours. - If the problem is still not resolved, the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

My canon iP3500: Black print comes out patchily, despite many attempts at deep cleaning, Each time I deep clean, a couple of pages come out with the black print OK, then it goes patchy again.


It sounds to me like your cartridge nozzles are clogged. That's more common with recycled or refilled cartridges, but it can also happen with new cartridges if they are older. If you just purchased the cartridge you could try to return it. Otherwise, I would try to continue deep cleaning and nozzle checks until it starts to print. It takes a lot of ink, but sometimes that's the only way to get it to print. Usually it will work eventually. Do a nozzle check in between each cleaning and deep cleaning.

Suddenly stopped printing all colors. Will only


Hi, it could be few things wich you having problem with.

First, how old are the ink tanks, it could be clodged.
Second the print head nozzles are clodged at that places.
Third, the purge unit does not work OK.

First remove all inks out and remove print head. Then on wet cloth, wet it with distiled water, few times press the bottom of print head ( nozzles ), then the 4 circles must change from colour to white. That means that nozzles are cleaned.
Dry head by pressing it on dry cloth.

Put it in, also the inks, and run few times the deep head cleaning. Every time take a look at print pattern.
If the head is to badlly clodged, test pattern would be just a little bit more better.

But now you know if the problem is in head or something else ( purge unit or inks ). The new head isnt so cheap regarding the printer so then the best solution would be to buy new printer.
If you do not want to buy laser colour printer, atleast buy one on wich ink tanks has printhead on. Its slightly costly, but you have one worry less - the print head is changed every time you change the ink.

Hope that helped

Follow the steps below to perform Print Head Cleaning (Windows):

Note: After confirming that the cable is connected and the printer is powered on, perform the following.
  1. Open the Printers folder.

    • For Windows XP select 'Start', 'Control Panel', 'Printers and Other Hardware', and 'Printers and Faxes'.
    • For Windows versions other than Windows XP select 'Start', 'Settings', and 'Printers'.

  2. Right-click the printer icon and select 'Properties'.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab, and then click the 'Cleaning' icon.

  4. Click 'OK' to continue with the print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash and print head cleaning will start. Do not perform any other operations until print head cleaning completes.

    ip1500_win_cleaning2.jpg

  5. Print nozzle check pattern by clicking on the 'Print Check Pattern' button to determine if further cleaning is necessary.

  6. Once the page has printed examine the nozzle check pattern.

  7. If the pattern does not print correctly, click the 'Exit' button to return to the Maintenance tab.

  8. Click the 'Deep Cleaning' icon.

  9. Click the 'Execute' button.

  10. Confirm the message, and then click the 'OK' button to start the Deep cleaning.

    ip1500_win_deep_cleaning3.jpg

  11. The Power lamp will blink and print head deep cleaning will start. Deep cleaning completes when the Power lamp stops blinking and lights. (It will take about a minute for the Power lamp to stop blinking and light solid.)

  12. Print another nozzle test pattern. If the pattern still does not print correctly, replace any ink tank that may be low, and then perform another deep print head cleaning.

  13. If printing is still not satisfactory, there may be a problem with the print head.
