Canon MX882 won't print. I put in new ink cartridges, cleaned the print head, shut the printer off and turned it back on. Nothing worked. I'm about to throw it out and buy a new printer. Any suggestions...


Regarding your recent inquiry about the Canon MX882 poor print quality/lack of printing performance, it sounds like the semi-permanent PRINTHEAD* is either clogged (from dried ink), has an electrical connection issue or has reached END-OF-LIFE*. To help determine which is causing the error condition, please perform the following steps (if you have already performed a step, please continue to the next step in the order shown):


Canon Cartridge Troubleshooting: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1537
(Review all steps below prior to beginning - ensure nothing has been overlooked)

1. Go into the printer's maintenance/tools menu and print a print quality test (i.e. heading cleaning, nozzle test or similar) to help identify which color (of number of colors) is impacted.

NOTE: To help determine which color has run out, use the following suggestions in sequence until you are able to identify the empty color: 1) Generate a Print Quality Test Page from your printer control panel; a faded color band indicates empty. 2) To distinguish between a black and photo black cartridge, print a text document and/or a photo. Faded black in a text document indicates the black cartridge is empty; faded black in a photo indicates the photo black cartridge is empty. 3) To distinguish between cyan, yellow, and magenta click here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=146 A faded or missing color band indicates empty.

2. At the printer's control panel under the 'Maintenance' or 'Tools' menu, activate a 'CLEANING' or 'HEAD CLEANING' to prime the ink system. Then Run the Inkjet411 'Ink Recovery Test Print' from our Test Prints page to verify all colors are firing properly (all printers also provide some form of a Self Test page): http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=146

3. Check your user's manual to see if there are any procedures on cleaning the service station/capping station assembly (this is where the carriage/cartridges 'park' when not in use). A dirty service station can cause all kinds of improper color output problems (assuming the printhead is working correctly of course). NOTE: May not be applicable for your model depending on the printer design.

4. The Ink Absorber, if applicable depending on print model, may also be full which could also cause printing related issues (typically an error code will be displayed when the ink absorber is full)...here is a customer/yahoo response on this particular issue: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20130523085451AAE1TqW

5. Refer to our print quality support page to ensure other variables are not causing the issue such as printer driver settings or operating system device conflict, etc: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1432

6. If this does not remedy the problem, then one or more of the ink ports may be dry within the PRINTHEAD assembly (the ink cartridges physically connect to this electronic assembly). We suggest you either remove the printhead and perform a hot water flush for 2 minutes (in a sink) or using an eye-dropper, or similar, drip 5-10 milliliters (i.e. 1-2 teaspoons) of distilled water into the respective color ink port to help saturate the foam. http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2804

7. Reinstall ink cartridges and retest.

8. If all ink cartridges are printing normally then the problem may the printer driver (i.e. file conversion issue); if one or more of the colors remain missing (...on internal test print) then we suggest you return to your retail refiller (i.e. Costco) and request to have the cyan/black (or more) ink cartridges weighed and checked. They should also ensure the smart chips are properly reset.

9. If the problem persists with full ink cartridges, then the PRINTHEAD* is likely clogged or electrically damaged - see below.

-Thank you

Inkjet411 Suggested PRINTHEAD Cleaning Procedures - ADVANCED RECOVERY RESOLUTIONS ONLY

1.Canon Printhead Warm-Water Flush Procedure: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2804

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FL8QaFVwsEs (Canon)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZheZf-vdho8 (Canon Printhead removal / water flush)

2.If the problem persists, then you may have a damaged PRINTHEAD (worst case scenario), unrelated to the refilled cartridges. The printhead is a separate electronic assembly (which the cartridges are installed into) and is responsible for firing the ink drops onto the paper. Over time and based on usage this assembly will eventually fail (typically lasts ~4,000 to 5000 printed pages on avg). Refer to video on how the PRINTHEAD functions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054

A replacement PRINTHEAD can normally be purchased from Canon.com (genuine part) or from Alibaba.com (aftermarket part).

----
PRINTHEAD TECHNICAL NOTES:
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2934

IIT (individual ink tank-based) printer models have an electronic PRINTHEAD within the base of the carriage assembly (responsible for pulling ink from the 4, 5 or 6 ink cartridges and then firing the ink droplets onto the paper) - these will eventually fail depending on print usage type and printer duty cycle (i.e. rated for approximately 10,000 printed pages over life, but the consumer average is typically closer ~4,000-5,000 thruput pages). The printhead is replaceable and can be ordered directly from the manufacturer or www.Amazon.com . For information on how the PRINTHEAD functions, please watch the following video: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2054

Typically the printhead should not reach it's end-of-life until after a minimum of 8 or more complete sets of cartridge changes. While some printheads may last 10,000+ pages others may only last 2000 pages, actual results will vary. The printhead will eventually fail in time due to an internal micro-electronics failure, due to the following leading factors: general customer print usage and printer care, printer duty cycle (i.e. # pages printed per month), printing frequency (i.e. time between each print job), print mode (i.e. draft vs. normal) and content printed (i.e. photos vs plain pages) and color mode (black and white only vs. color/greyscale printing).

Paper types used (i.e. plain paper, photo papers & matte/heavy bond papers) and paper edge curl (i.e. duration in printer and/or exposure to low relative humidity) can also quickly lead to premature printhead failures due to physical 'head strikes' of the paper edges making repeated contact with the printhead nozzle plate surfaces.
----

CAUTION: the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from overseas) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and permanent PRINTHEAD damage. We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

Please advise if the above suggestions do not help remedy the current issue. For any additional questions please contact us directly: Inkjet411help@gmail.com

If you ever need to purchase a new Canon ink cartridge(s) and are trying to cut costs, we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (purchases available to USA residents only).

Why won't my printer print black with all new cartridges?


Remove all inks, then the printhead & sit the printhead on a soft cloth soaked in warm water - let it sit for a few minutes then reinstall, close lid then make the machine ask for the inks once the inks have then been installed it should prime the machine. If this does not work try it again & if that fails then your printhead probably needs to be replaced.

Photosmart B8550 color inks running low after printing only 1 or 2 4X6 prints. Also, have refilled cartridges, and black is coming out blue. I'm using a MacBook Pro OSX 8.6. I have set the print...


BETTER SOLUTION IS IF YOU TAKE MORE PHOTOS I SUGGEST YOU BUY ORGIINAL INK CARTRIDGES.THEN YOU CAN DO ONE TIME REFILLING.ITS OK.

AGAIN IF YOU TRY REFILL SAME CARTRIDGE MAY LOSS YOUR PAGE YEILD. IF U WANT USE REFILLED CARTRIDGES AGAIN BUY VIRGIN CARTRIDGE FROM REFILL STORE AND MAKE REFILL. OTHERWISE INK WILL FINISH SOON.

FOR BLACK INK U SHOULD REFILL OR BUY NEW ONE NOW. BECOS BLACK INK FINISHED ALREADY. THATS WHY YOU GETTING BLUE PRINTING....OOOOOOOOOK DEAR...

Printer will not print text. will only print picutres and graphics and text on graphics. just replaced the black and white cartridge.


It sounds like you are either out of black ink or you have a clogged black printhead. Perform a nozzle check/test page, then do 3-4 printhead cleanings. Run another nozzle check/test page and compare it to the first one. If you see improvement, keep cleaning your printheads until the black printhead is unclogged. If you do not see any improvement, you may need to replace the black ink cartridge. (I am assuming that your printer uses a tri-color and black ink cartridge) Replacing the ink cartridge will give you a new printhead (attached to the ink cartridge).

HP L7590 black ink printing poorly even with new HP cartridge


I have had the same problem It is the print head not the cartridge If your printer is still under warranty have the printhead(s) replaced if not Open the unit where the print heads are and hold the OK button for 5 seconds. The Print head carriage will move to the left

Carefully remove the KY (Black & Yellow) Print head with a cotton swab and alcohol clean the contacts and replace the printhead. If this does not work remove the printhead and then with a spray bottle spray the nozzle area on the bottom (DO NOT TOUCH THE NOZZLES AS THEY WILL BE DESTROYED) HP techs have told me this will void any warranty so act accordingly I use a printhead cleaning solution available from most any online ink supplier

Replace the printhead after it has dried out (less than a minute). The printer will then go through an alignment cycle and should print I had to do this several times before the print head performed as it should

Blank Ink not pumping to print head


Turn off the device after removing the printhead After removing the printhead, turn off the device, wait about 20 seconds, and turn it on again without the printhead installed. After it has restarted, reinsert the printhead.

it will go through this long routine of perhaps 20 min or so. after its compleate it should print great.

Same as some other complaints at your site about this printer/aio


Your printer does indeed have cartridges...4 in fact, along with 2 printheads. 1 printhead is for Magenta/cyan. The other for Black/yellow.

You know where the printheads are. The ink cartridges are below them. There is a door that pulls down to expose all four.

Here is a link to HP Support for changing your ink cartridges: L7580 Ink Cartridge

Consider XL cartridges...they last much longer.

Also, for reference, here is a link to the User Guide for your printer: L7580 User Guide
