Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Yellow won't print


First try to replace the yellow toner cartridge. After that, try re-seating the cartridge (take out the cartridge and place it back in carefully making sure it is seated correctly). If this does not resolve the issue, clean the print heads and connections on the cartridge. This can be done by removing the cartridge and swabbing the connections with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Also, while the cartridge is removed, swab the connections to the cartridge that are inside the printer where the cartridge is seated.

CANON PIXMA IP2000 STOPPED PRINTING YELLOW A FEW MONTHS AGO. WE'VE CHANGED INK CARTRIDGES MANY TIMES, BUT CAN'T GET YELLOW TO PRINT. HOW DO WE REMOVE THE PRINTHEAD SO WE CAN TRY TO FLUSH IT OUT WITH HOT...


OK, since nobody answered my plea for help, I merely opened the Canon monster and yanked out the printhead after lifting up the level. (WHAT was so hard about that, that nobody could explain it here?!)
Cleaned printhead using warm water & ice-cube tray & paper towes. Just let it soak all the excess ink out for a while, then allowed it to dry.
Changed cartridges, put new color cartridge in...
THE DAMNED THING STILL WON'T PRINT YELLOW (altho it will print a faint hint of yellow). WHY IS IT DOING THIS? Why is Canon making this a common problem in the first place, rather than producing a product that is reliable and easy to maintain?

Alignment of HP L 7780 failed. What are the steps to correct?


hello, you will need to run a cleaning cycle, you are looking for black printing, if not printing well, it might fail, if it does you will need #88 printhead. the black/yellow one. most times you will not need calibration to print, unless machine is stuck in that mode and won't pass. and won;t allow for print.
