Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Remove the cartridge again and clean the copper circuitry strip on the backside of the cartridge, and the contacts inside the printer, by following the instructions below:
1. Use a clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth. Locate the copper-colored circuitry strip on the back of the cartridge.
2. Wipe the copper-colored strip with the dry cloth. Use an upward motion, from the nozzle end to the top of the cartridge. Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the nozzle plate. Wipe the contacts only once.
3. To clean the printer contacts, carefully look for fibers or contamination on the electrical contacts inside the carriage assembly, but do not wipe the printer contacts with any object. The contacts in the printer can be damaged if too much pressure is applied during a wiping process. Try to remove any visible attached debris within the carriage assembly by gently pulling the debris off with your fingers. Reinsert the cartridge and try printing again. If the error continues, the cartridge may need to be replaced.

Do the following to
clean the print head:
INK key on the control panel.
the DOWN arrow key until CLEANING appears on the LCD.
the DOWN arrow key to select BLACK, COLOR or ALL depending on what you
want to clean.
The machine will
clean the print head. When cleaning is finished, the machine will go back
to Ready automatically. If you are experiencing a print quality issue, we
recommend you repeat the print head cleaning for each color showing an issue
at least five (4) times.
If you are
experiencing a print quality issue and want to see if the cleanings are
improving the print quality, print a Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS) after the
first cleaning and then print another PQCS after repeating the print head
cleaning steps at least three (3) more times (4 total cleanings).
You can then compare the two Print Quality Check Sheets.
Do the following to
print a Print Quality Check Sheet:
Press INK key on the control panel.
TEST PRINT will appear on the LCD.
Press OK. PRINT QUALITY will appear on
Press COLOR START.
machine will generate the Print Quality Check Sheet (PQCS). On the PQCS each of
the four colors is represented by a slanted square pattern made up of 96
individual blocks. The colors should appear (from left to right): Black -
Yellow - Cyan - Magenta. Cyan is the light blue color and
Magenta is the pinkish color.
