Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

The printer misses out single lines and sometimes multiple lines when printing. The nozzles have been cleaned but this does not help and the way the printer works does not indicate that the nozzles are blocked (i.e - the lines that do print are solid)

Missing lines of print


hello
You either have to change the ink cartridge or try to clean the ink cartridge nozzles as described in the user manual;
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/924/en/om_en/om_en.pdf
On page 54 it states the following:

To clean the ink cartridge nozzles:
1 Load plain paper. For more information, see "Loading Paper" on page 19.
2 In Windows XP, click Start-Control Panel-Printers and Other Hardware-Printers and
Faxes.
In Windows 2000, click Start-Settings-Printers.
3 Right-click the Dell Photo AIO Printer 924 icon.
4 Click Printing Preferences.
The Printing Preferences dialog box opens.
5 Click the Maintenance tab.
6 Click Clean Print Cartridges.
7 If the print quality has not improved, click Print Again.
8 Print your document again to verify the improved print quality.
9 If you are not satisfied with the print quality, wipe the ink cartridge nozzles, and then print
your document again.

hope this helps.

It has ink but yet still not printing


Try these :
- Do a Nozzle check from the Computer. Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes Right-click on your printer, click Printing Preferences, click Utility, then click Nozzle Check. - If you can see multiple missing lines on the Nozzle Check Pattern, clean the print head. (Head Cleaning Utility). - You can clean the print head 3 times. - Also try to reinstall the ink cartridges. - If that does not work, your printer may need servicing/repairs.

All of my printouts are coming out with the top half of every tenth line (about) missing. I have checked the ink nozzles multiple times, cleaned the print head twice and replaced all ink cartridges. I...


If the print-heads are clogged, and your attempts to "unclog" have failed, it's time to responsibly recycle the printer, and buy a new Epson (hopefully, one that uses the same ink-cartridges that you have been using).

Lines in pictures and text when print. Tried over


Most likely you have some clogged nozzles.

Easiest way to check is to use the Maintenance functions to print off a nozzle check and then look for any missing grid lines as this indicates nozzle clogs.

If there are then it's worth getting a suitable cleaning solution and soaking a small wad of paper towel in it. Moving the printhead off the parking pad and then placing your soaked wad on this before moving the printhead over it to sit on the wad.

This allows the cleaning fluid to wick up into the printhead nozzles and slowly break down the clog so it can be ejected out.

The key to this succeeding is that the wad soaked in cleaning fluid is changed a couple of times and that you leave it for at least 6 to 12 hours to allow the fluid to work. Patience is key, as a result..

Once the 12 hours is up, a single cleaning routine followed by a nozzle check should indicate that your nozzles are starting to clear... Really stubborn clogs can take longer and sometimes it's worth having a set of refillable cartridges installed and filled with the cleaning fluid too so the fluid can work on the clog from the other side of the printhead.

It if helps I've managed to resurrect an old C84 this way just recently and it's printing beautifully so if you can hang on to your printer it's worth the hassle.

Hope that helps anyway.

Test page prints fine, but nothing else does


You need a new printhead, QY6-0049-000 around $40.00. Your printhead has worn out or plugged nozzles and cleaning won't help.

I bought two new cartridges for my printer but the printer prints funny. there is no color and the black appears faded. my printer is about 2 years old. have any ideals?


Sounds like the jets may be clogged. You may have to run multiple times till they are good. Print a test after each clean and see if that helps.  You can use the operator panel or the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center to clean the nozzles. Using the operator panel 1 Load paper in the All-In-One. For help, see page 16. 2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display. 3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display. 4 Press Select. A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved. 6 To further improve print quality, try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts (see page 44), and then print your document again. 7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times. you can get the owners manual on line at this address:  http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x5150/eng/ug.pdf

please rate this and good luck.

Black not printing about every 3rd line


You have the classic single nozzle failure it appears. You say you have done a nozzle check. This should reveal that one of the black nozzles is not working i.e. there is a single gap in your nozzle check printout for the black nozzles. Now, this may be due to a blocked nozzle. Try the following print head soak process.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean again. If still nothing, report back

#5 black ink cartridge skips through the middle occasionally


Replacing the print head
The print head may need replacing if, after all print head and ink tank troubleshooting has been performed:

  • The nozzle test appears broken or to have horizontal white streaks.
  • One or more of the colors is missing from the Nozzle Test.
  • The colors are incorrect on the Nozzle Test.
  • A print head error is indicated on the unit.
  • The printer powers off when the print head is installed.
I hope it helps!!!

Black ink from new cartridge is missing lines


Try doing nozzle cleaning, hope fully this flushes the air bubbles trapped in the cartridges. Or try using this template which sometimes flushes out the inks.
