Installed new ink cartridges....printer won't print...


fixing cartridge problems can sometimes be easy and sometimes impossible.... first perform a reset of the printer... while the printer is powered on remove the cartidges ... remove the power cord from the printer tehn physically move the print carraige .... close the cover and power up the printer ... wait for the printer to request that you install the ink cartridges and install them. If this dosnt work repeat the same proceedure but this time clean the contacts on both the cartridges and the carriage. use a rolled paper towel (like a pencil) and bend it in half. Use distilled or bottled water and be very gentel... also avoid touching the ink heads on the bottom of the cartridges

When printing, if I select any other form of paper than "Plain Paper", e.g. "Photo Glossy Paper", the print (of a photo) comes out with a distinct Magenta overhue. The true colours are...


Hello Landscapeman ,

You need to specify the paper type when the print dialog box appears. Heavy glossy paper needs to spend more time in the fuser so that the toner is fixed.

Printer ink consumption


Even if you are not using it for printing, the ink inside the cartidge will be dry, some solutions composed in the ink can be easily be dry if it is exposed in excessive heat or cold..

Since I changed ink in my pixma mp 600, paper gets stuck in both feeders. I can not get it to print.


Go here. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=116&modelid=13800#SupportDetailAct
Click on the Service & Support tab. Type in the search window: Paper does not feed through printer. Click search. Typed in Red you'll see, "Paper does not feed through printer". Click this link & follow the instructions.

Hi i've got a hp 5500,most mornings when i switch the machine on there is a recover print head mesage . can you tell me why this is happening and how i can resolve the problem. thank you gem


Ok well i'm a little confused on this one also, i presume you are referring to a HP printer and the message is displayed.

Try this and let us know if it makes sense to you.

There's a section in your Users Guide about this message.
It will appear on your printer when one or more print head(s) are not performing optimally, so it needs to make extra passes to maintain print quality. You can eliminate the message by:

1. Selecting a higher print quality
2.Cleaning print heads (also see RECOVER print heads)
3.Use the Image Diagnostic Print to identify which print head is causing the problem
