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.

How do i clean the printhead on my pixma mp750


If you open the preferences option for your printer there should be a maintenance tab with easy options for cleaning and checking the results. The alternative is to use the menu directly on the printer: 1. Press Menu twice to show "2. Maintenance" 2. The first option is NOZZLE CHECK 3. Press OK This should give you a print showing the current state of each colour. If there are any missing lines in 3eBK or lines in any colours then perform the head cleaning below. 1. Press Menu twice to show "2. Maintenance" 2. Press + to show "CLEANING" 3. Press OK Repeat the nozzle check after each clean. If not improved after three attempts try a deep clean as below (cleaning uses up ink) 1. Press Menu twice to show "2. Maintenance" 2. Press + twice to show "HEAD REFRESHING" 3. Press OK Repeat the nozzle check. If still not printing correctly there are various external solutions available to clean the print head such as http://www.printheadhospital.co.uk/canon-hp-printhead-cleaning-kit.html

Printer wont print in colour


Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge on my Canon Pixma IP3000 but it is not printing - absolutely blank. However the colour cartridges are printing fine. Any clues?


Assuming a windows computer ... go to the printers section, right click on the IP3000, click on propterties then the maintenance tab. Try cleaning or deep cleaning and then nozzle check.

Re Canon Pixma 4000 black ink is not printing colours are printing Computer not used for 6 months


Canno ip 4000:

please go to the maintenance tab.
This you will find if you try to print anything.
In the print box >go to properties>go to maintence
Here the following Maintenance option are there:
cleaning,
deep cleaning,
Head Alignment,
Nozzle check.
Before your start maintenance, please check whether all print tanks have ink in them
Do a Nozzle check first, this will indicate where you have the problem. Once identified, you can do a color cleanig or a deep cleaning.
Do a Nozzle check again.
You could repeat this cycle about three times or so.

If your problem still persists, then its probably the Print head with jammed nozzles.

Please let me know whether you could solve it.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa.

Canon MP830 printing with interlacing shades of black


your printer cartridge or head unit ink channel (some of color or black ink channel) constipated, you may try:
1) if your ink cartridge is not new, take out the cartridge put the bottom surface touch cleaner liquid(special for ink printer) or water for 1 hr (you can see ink spread water), then set back and test. refill enough ink maybe necessary.
2) still trouble, you need clean print head ink channel to do same thing above, if your print head is separated from the cartridge.
