It sounds like you need a new print head. You can order through Canon...
"To order an internal replacement part, please call 1-800-828-4040. The hours of operation are 9:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. EST from Monday to Friday."

The color is not printing correctly. Things are coming out mostly pink or yellow. I tried the MAINTENANCE tab. The nozzle check showed that the top section (PGBK) looked good. The second section (C)...


The printhead has either become too clogged to flush out with with the internal cleaning operation (which uses a LOT of ink), OR, the nozzles are not firing. If after several cleaning operations there is still no significant improvement, you will need to replace the print head. I see this frequently with Canon and Epson, and Brother inkjet printers. Usually, it is due to leaving the printer idle for too long, or removing a cartridge and not replacing it right away. The air gets to the residual puddle of ink in the head and dries it.

You can find the replacement print head by Google searching "MP830 print head". Prices can vary from around $70 - $90. Changing it out is fairly simple. You only need to lift a lever that holds the head in place. Make certain that it is squarely seated, and then run a few pages of a color document, or do a couple of standard cleaning operations to "prime" the head.

Make sure the hed is NEW and not used or "refurbished". Here is one source on eBay that sells it for $78.00:

All catridges are showing as full or near full but print is very very faint in all colours


From your description the print head is bad, have you tried a maintenance cleaning to see if that might help? sometimes the nozzles become clogged and produce all kinds of problems from faint print to uneven ink distribution.

HI, can you tell me the procedure for 'cleaning the ink heads' on my EPSON STYLUS DX4400, Please. thank you, MARK


  1. Open the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
    In Windows 7, click Start then Devices and Printers. In other versions of Windows:
    • Click Start > Settings > Printers, or
    • Click Start > Printers, or
    • Click Start > Control Panel then double-click on:
      • Printers, or
      • Printers and Faxes, or
      • Printers and Other Hardware then View Installed Printers.

    • See How to open the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder in Windows in the Related Articles section for detailed instructions.


  2. Right-click on the icon for your printer and select Printing Preferences.

    Example: Windows Vista


  3. This will display the Printing Preferences window.
  4. Click on the Maintenance (or Utility) tab.


  5. Click on Head Cleaning. This will launch the utility.
  6. Click Start and wait for the printer to finish the first cleaning cycle.


    caution.gif Caution: Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer.



  7. Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern. This procedure will confirm the effectiveness of the head clean. You can also access the print Nozzle Check option from the Maintenance or Utility menu.


  8. Click Print.


  9. The printer will print a nozzle check. Compare the print out with the next window. If there are gaps, the print out is faint, click Clean, and then Finish when the procedure is complete.


    • If the nozzle check prints correctly (showing no breaks in the pattern), but the text is still broken you may need to run the Print Head Alignment utility - see How do I use the Print Head Alignment utility? for assistance.
  • If the nozzle check is complete, click Finish.
  • If there are gaps or faint print on your printout click Clean.


If gaps are still present, perform another head clean (without printing a nozzle check between the cleans). Once the second clean is complete, power off the printer.
Wait one minute before powering it back on, then print a nozzle check. Compare the printout with the example window (above).
  • If it is complete, click Finish.
  • If there are gaps or faint print on your printout carry out another set of head cleans.
  • We recommend only a maximum of six head cleans.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe

Hi, my Epson 2100 is printing with faint lines at regular intervals right across the page. I've done various alignment tests and cleaning tests but can't seem to clear the lines. Any advice much...


Are your alignment tests show good results? If they are, try head cleaning 3 consecutive times without printing nozzle checks. After 3 head cleanings do the nozzle check. If problem persists try printing at BEST PHOTO or whatever is the slowest print setting for your printer. Good luck!

The colour is faint, a new catridge was installed


Hi there,
When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect, even if ink remains in the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the procedures below to clean the nozzles.

Step 1 : Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern.
If white stripes are noticeable
Step 2 : "Aligning the Print Head"
If print quality is poor
Step 2 : "Print Head Cleaning"
if the problem remains
Step 3 : Print Head Deep Cleaning"
if the problem still remains
Step 4 : Replacing Ink Tanks.

Note : * If the ink tank replacement does not resolve the problem, contact the Customer Care Center.
* You will be alerted if low ink warning is enabled.
* When the Maintenace button on the operation panel is pressed, the maintenance mode is shown. Numbers and functions that can be selected on the maintenance mode as follows :
01 : Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
02 : Print Head Cleaning
03 : Print Head Deep Cleaning
04 : Aligning the Print Head
05 : Reset the ink counter.
06 : "Display" or "Not Display" remaining ink volume.
07 : Date and order setting.

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern : Print the nozzle check patterb to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles and to verify print head alignment. Use this function when printed results are blurred or the color is incorrect,
1) With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter paper in the printer.
2) Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
a) Press the Maintenance button,
b) The Maintenance icon and 01 appear on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button. The nozzle check pattern is printed.
3) Examine the nozzle check pattern output by the printer.
a) Lines missing in this pattern indicate that the print head of black ink requires cleaning. Perform the Print Head Cleaning.
b) White stripes in this pattern indicate that the print head of color ink requires cleaning. Perform the Print Head Cleaning.
c) Uneven patterns indicate that the print head requires alignment.
Perform Aligning of Print Head.
d) Noticeable white stripes in this pattern indicate that the print head require alignment.
Perform Aligning of Print Head.

Print Head Cleaning : Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozles might be clogged. Cleaning the print head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.
1) Ensure that the printer is on.
2) Start print head cleaning.
a) Press Maintenance button.
b) Press right arrow once to display 02 on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button.
Important : Do not perform any other operations until the print head cleaning finishes. This takes about 50 seconds.
Note : After the print head cleaning finishes, print the nozzle check pattern to verify that the print head nozzles are clean.
If the problem persists, perform printhead deep cleaning.

Print Head Deep Cleaning : If print quality does not improve by standard print head cleaning, try print head deep cleaning, which is more powerful process. Print head deep cleaning consumes ink, so perforn this procedure only when necessary.
1) Ensure that the printer is on.
2) Start Print Head Deep cleaning.
a) Press Maintenance button.
b) Press right arrow twice to display 03 on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button.
Important : This process takes one or two minutes to complete so simply wait until the Power lamp stops flashing.
Note : After printhead deep cleaning finishes, print the nozzle check pattern to verify that the printhead nozzles are clean.
If the printhead is still not clean after the second deep cleaning, replace the ink tank.
If ink tank replacement does not resolve the problem, the print head may be worn out. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks.

Have a good day.

Printer not printing


You need to carry out a couple of print head cleans and nozzle checks. To do a print head clean you can either use the driver software (Go to printers & faxes, right click on printer and select printing preferences then the maintenance tab) or hold down the maintenance button for 3 seconds. to carry out the nozzle checks either use the software as above or turn off the printer and press & hold both buttons for about 3-4seconds when turning back on. The nozzle checks should show unbroken lines, if there are any gaps then the print head is starting to get clogged. Note head cleans use about 5 - 10 percent of an ink cartridge, if any cartridges are low they will need replacing after cleaning. Other sources of information is available from Epson on-line guide here:
