Run a a deep cleaning cycle then run the alignment test and realign the head correctly. Then print the test sheet again. It sometimes takes a few cleaning cycles to get the ink flowing correctly especially if the prinetr is in a warm environment and has not been used for a while.

CANON PIXMA COLORS ARE LIGHT


I would manually clean out the printhead, I believe for your model it is a separate unit form the ink cartridge. Please follow these steps bellow.

First you will need to remove the cartridges, then remove the printhead assembly then mix some water and isopropyl alcohol in a 50/50 mixture. You can either use a cotton swab to rub the water and alcohol on the printhead or you can soak the inkjet printhead for around 2 to 5 minutes. This should loosen the dried ink. It may take a few attempts and requires patience. Dry it on a folded paper towel and reinstall it. Print a test page to check quality. If the documents are still printing with poor quality, repeat and soak the printheads for longer.

Let me know if that helped. I had the same issue and this resolved it for me.

Thanks

Pixma mx330 printing very faded colors


try selecting higher print quality setting. If it still prints faded on "standard" or "high" quality, try running the "printhead clean" or "deep clean" utility (under "maintenance" in printer properties).
If still no good, refill or replace cartridge(s).

good luck with it

Hi there,

If you have to clean the print heads each time, this will only consume even more ink. There may be a problem with the printhead having clogged up with ink overtime. I would get it serviced, or if the quote is too high, you might just be better of getting a new printer unfortunately.

With regards

I just installed new color & b/w cartridges in my canon s300 printer but the type is faded.


You need a new printhead number QY6-0037-000. Runs around $30.00. I have tried all methods of cleaning and none help, but with a new printhead your printer will work like new again.

Canon MP730 not printing. Printhead cleaning doesn't help.


You may need new print heads. They are around $50. Or, you could do this: Take the print head out of the printer, and run warm water from the tap (not high pressure), over the ports for about 5 minutes. Ink will drop out of the jets. Dont touch the electrical contact end of this head. This may clean the head enough so it works again. If not you need a new print head.

Faded prints off canon p100


it could the problem with clogged print head try to clean the print head

# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Prints faded


Hello mvjv,

To solve the faded prints you need to clean the printhead twice by going to the software and click the "?" mark icon on the upper right corner of the software window and then under General Links select Maintenance then choose Clean Printhead - do it at least thrice to unclog the printhead system. Then try making prints... If still cannot solve call Kodak Technical Support.

I hope I have been some of help.
