INK ON SIDE OF PAPER

The printer is printing fine but with light black ink on each sides of the paper...sometimes you can make out small words in it....happens about %70 of the printouts. Not sure what the problem is. Could it be the wheels that feed the paper have ink on them?

5x7 inch paper moves towards end of print and black ink smudges edge of paper


Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

Why would paper be jamming or getting stuck on right side with black ink every time?


The rollers that advance the paper could have been messed up by the key, therefore crinkling paper and not advancing in proper timing with the ink. It also could have busted of the plastic gears in modern day printers.

My printer prints pictures fine but when i print words it dont print black ink just colors why


Black printer ink in Canon Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Won't print black ink


In this case what i would request u to do is.......
Take out both the catridges from the Printer.........
Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
Now do the same procedure again..........
Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer the Colour Catridge should go in the right side and the black on the left........
Unplug the Power Supply from the printer.......
Press and hold the Stop/Clear button on the Printer and Plug in the Power Supply while holding the Stop/Clear button it should say clearing on the screen at that point u can go ahead and release the Stop/Clear button..........
Now the Printer will ask for the Date Time and Country Language.........
Set everything up......
Now try to Print i am sure it should work..........
Good Luck............

Balck ink not working


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.
