If the message says replace head rather than replace cartridge, then I suspect that the print head is worn out. It will have a page life, so if it has been used a lot you may need to buy a new head for it.

The head cleaning cannot be completed by the printer?


Epson printers use a lot of ink to do head cleaning. If you're low on ink, it will give you that message. Put in new ink carts, and head cleaning will happen. You may want to purchase "cleaning carts" that have a special solvent to help un-clog the print heads.

Epsonr220 does not print megenta or light megenta colors


The problem seems to be the printhead nozzels are plugged or burntout. I beleive on the Epson, to remove the printhead for cleaning, you must partially disassemble the printer. If you are not up for this, Quit here. If you game, remove the cartridges and tape over the outlet and air hole of each. I find electrical tape the best. Tape snugly but not too tight and once around the cart. If you have a digital camera or a webcam, take photos along the way to help in re-assembly. Remove the drive belt and disconnect the guide rod the printhead slides on at each end. Try and remove the guide rod and print head as one unit. Use alcohol and/or water to clean the print head nozzels, or completely wash the print head with running water. Blow it off and let dry. Put the guide rod back in the print head and put that assembly back in the printer. Attach the guide rod at each end then put the belt back in place. Put the cartridges back and do a nozzel/print head check. If the printer works completely, then you are set. If the magenta still doesn't work, the nozzels may be burnt out. I don't think you can get Epson Print heads, That means a new printer. Lastly DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I can't even guarantee my work!

Since this morning my printer is not printing the red(megenta).


The problem is with the print head.
Firstly try cleaning cleaning and more cleaning because it means the nossles are blocked or the head is done for. If after doing a ridiculous amount of cleaning it still doesn't work then a last resort that has worked multiple times for me is to get a syringe without a needle. Remove the color in question and get a cup of boiling water fill the syringe and squirt it in the cradle where the ink gets fed to the head and wait 15 mins then repeat the process a few times. Wipe up any water around the contacts and put the cart back in, then go back to the cleaning. If the problem is not solved after this unfortunatly its time to bin the printer because the time to install and cost of the head is generally more than its worth (Not always but mostly the case)
Hope this fixsya

Canon i9900 isn't printing photo magenta


Use denatured alcohol to soak the print head. Then use suction to draw the alcohol back thru to the foam ports where the ink cartridges rest. Continue until the alcohol runs clear. Then use water and then repeat with alcohol. Allow to dry and re-install in printer. Use new ink cartridges when re-starting printing.

Printer problem


Did you check the right placing of the ink cart? Is the support locked above the cart top?

After checking press menue then start mono (blue copy button). then fourtimes arrow-up button. machine will display maintenance and blicking. press 7 then 6 then 4. machine will be initialize the carts. press start mono (blue copy). machine will initialize the carts and will run some cleaning. After maintenance is shown again leave this mode by pressing 9 then 9. Do a test print.

If you cant see any bk insert another brand new cart and do the procedure again.

If trhere is still no bk the print head is clogged (because of generic ink??) and cant be cleaned any more! The ph has to be replaced by service personal!

First, wouldn't print black, now won't print magenta- all new cartridges!


Unplug machinepowercord. Open printer and take all carts out. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Put new one in: Replace with original ink carts!. When asked push 1 (yes New cart). If you have used thirdparty carts, there could be a prob due to construticon or ink quality. In case there is no bk after 3x cleaning cycles anymore, the head is clogged: This happens because the filter in front of the nozzels is clogged by pigmented ink. DO USE ONLY DYE INK for all types of brother inkjet machines!!!
