After the printer sits over the weekend, each Monday I have to run a cleaning to get a good print. It works fine all week.

The weekend break may sufficient time for excess ink to congeal on the print heads. As an experiment, clean the heads Friday before COB, then check on Monday. If the heads are dirty, leakage is occurring while the printer is idle.

Lines on your printed paper??

Lines are caused by a dirty, or clogged printer cartridge. Low quality ink is the most common factor in this issue. For a quick fix, pull out your cartridges and use a damp cloth to clean off the excess ink/dirt. If the problem persists, try replacing the entire cartridge.

If this was helpful please rate with a 4 thumbs up!! Thanks for using!!

When I print a glossy photo print, right at the end the printer makes a noise as if its labouring and there are excess ink smudges on the corners of the print. It only happens when printing glossy paper.

i think the problem is with your print head. i have the same problem before. when i put out the print head to check. there's a lot of excess ink. this may be the reason for the ink smudges on the corners of your print. and when you set your printer to photo printing. it is programmed to put larger amount of ink than normal printing. the best way is to have your printer checked by your service center or change your printhead to a new one. goodluck!

Received a solution to replacing the ink absorber on my Pixma iP1800 printer, however, it did not tell me where the ink absorber is located and if it's something I can get to. Please advise.

When the printer is _NOT_ printing, where do the print-heads go? Correct! They go to where ink-absorbers let gravity drain the excess ink into the absorbers.

Epson 9600 splatering black ink on images mostly on the right side

I have not worked on such a large machine, but it sounds like the ink waste station likely need cleaning. All smaller inkjet printers have silicone wiper blades that clean excess ink off the print head surface, if the blades are heavily saturated in junked up ink they may not be cleaning the print head appropriately. I have cleaned many wiper sleds with warm water and Q-tips, but always on home or SOHO machines. If this is not something you feel comfortable doing, call a professional technician, I'm sure that machine is worth and simple service call.

New ink cartridge not recognized

Please check if there is not some dirt, or something blocking the contacts from reading. Also the ink level is measured by optical sensor that can also be dirty.
Also make sure you use an Original Canon cartridge.

Printing misaligned color blotches, little squares off to the

Are you using genuine inks or compatibles/refills? Have you cleaned / aligned the print heads recently? Does it only happen on the second print? Could be a case of excess ink getting onto the rollers which then get hot and deposit the ink on the next paper coming through.
Also make sure you've selected the correct paper type before printing.

Something in the way

Usual thing is the carriage bar is dirty or dry. Open up the to lid so you can see the ink cartridges and as much of the silver bar they run across. Give the bar a wipe with a cloth and then oil it with some light oil eg WD40 squirted on that cloth. PLEASE MAKE SURE IT'S SWITCHED OFF B4 DOING THIS
