The nozzles might be clogged. Also the clear encoding strip behind the carriage might need cleaning. If cleaning these doesn't work. It might need parts.

Has the printer been sitting a long time since the last time you printed? If so the print heads may be clogged, run the cleaning program to try getting them to flow again

Replaced ink cartridges, printer goes through all the motions, but paper comes out blank. I have done all the maintenance steps. What gives?


Cannon ink cartridges go into a print head. This is normally a removable box the ink cartridge sits in.

First remove the head and the cartridges from it. Now try this to clean the old ink off the print head, rub/soak the print head in alcohol. Make sure the print head is complete dry and place the ink back in it and return to the printer. Try to print a page, if you have the same results you need to replace the print head.

The Ink at the head of your Printer Cartridges has dried up.
Try this:

Load some plain paper in the printer

Remove the cartridges from the printer and carefully dab the print heads of the cartridges with a damp paper towel. ( when you start to see ink, the ink is starting to flow).

Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Go to:

Start
Control Panel
Printers
RIGHT click on this printer
choose Printing preferences
services
clean print cartridges 9some papers may print)
follow the instructions and do the heavier cleaning as well

Run the calibration function and allow the paper to print.

Printer not printing. Printer goes through the motions, but nothing on paper. Ink cartridges are full


1. Make sure plastic (all of it) is not on the cartridge contacts.
2. Wipe the print area (bottom of cartridge) with damp cloth, If does not work, try warm water - even letting it stand for a few minutes.
3. Go to the printing services and service the device (this function let the printer try to clear any clogged areas that may exist.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Epson c60 printer


Common problem with Epson Printers.
Either the print head is clogged, or the tube that goes from the pump to the printhead fell off.

Open the printer cover so that the ink cartridges are in open view and then UNPLUG THE PRINTER" so that the ink cartridges wont go back to home position. (If there is a change INK cartridge button, then press that then uplug the printer when the cartridge stops moving.)

You can try to clean the print head by folding up a couple paper towels, then saturate it with windex with amonia. Place it under the print head assembly and manually move the print head assembly over the paper towel back and forth to clean the bottom of the print head assembly. You should start seeing ink on the paper towel.

After cleaning, run the cleaning program that Epson has, and try it out.
If it still doesn't work, then you might have to repeat this a couple more times.
If it still doesn't work, then it might be time to get a new printer.
Hope this info helps.
Good luck.

Nothing printed when paper goes through printer


the ink nozzles on the cartridges are clogged. first try cleaning them using a alcohol-soaked Q-tip against the shiny part where ink comes out (remove cartridges first). if still no ink, cartridges may be out of ink, so either replace or re-fill them.
