Hi There

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.

We have all of our kids' videos recorded on this camera. We can play it in the view screen but only the audio will play when we connect it to the TV. Anyone know of a quick fix for this? Thanks.


hi,
it seems to be the magnetic head of your camera is either dirty or damaged, if it is dirty please use a head cleaner cassette to clean it, if it is clogged with dirt, clean it manually with some cleaning liquid, use a cotton swab to do this. be careful to avoid damaging the scanning chip on the head drum, don"t put pressure on it.

Have you tried cleaning the tape head? I recommend taking the top cover off to clean any video. Then I spray the heads with Servisol Video 40. You should clean all the surfaces that a tape touches.
You can get a universal remote, this will allow you to adjust the tracking.

Pump stall hp cp1700


I know this is years old, but just in case someone else has this problem....

I just had this problem and fixed it quite easily.

Like you, my ink cartridge flooded the ink bay and caused the printer to complain about a pump stall.

Mine was fixed by taking the cover off (u don't need to) and cleaning all the ink off the white strip.

Basically, there's a white piece of plastic with a metal rectangle on it. it sites to the left of the thing under the print heads (the part doesn't move. Under the big part with all the print heads) and to the right of the paper rollers.

It's also the thing that stops the print heads from moving when they're not to be moving.

Mine was covered in black ink. I cleaned it off and turned on the printer to find it working again and no more "pump stall" messages.

I don't know what the plastic piece is for, but cleaning it fixed my problem. Also there's no "pumps" in the printer (it uses gravity to feed the ink).

The heads are inside the VCR. You can buy from your Local dealer a VHS head cleaning cassette that should solve the problem. Normally I would recommend going inside the VCR to clean it with Servisol Video 40, but in your case I would stick to the tape!

Printer will not print red. The red cartridge seems fine, with ink flowing freely, but it won't print onto the page.


its the problem of print head in your printer. You are not the only one facing this problem there are many other users facing this same problem.in canon printer users out of 10 users ---- 8 users face this problem.
Now I will explain the problem
In the printer where you insert the cartridges is called carriage.in the carriage there is a part called PRINT HEAD. In the print head there are tiny – tiny holes from where the ink passes.when you insert the cartridge in the carriage /head of the printer the ink from the cartridge passes from the head.but if the head is got blocked then the ink will not pass from the head and you get no print out still with the new brand cartridges.now in the printer there is a in built cleaning assembly , so when you give the command of cleaning from your pc/laptop the inbuilt cleaning assembly tries to clean the blocked ink in the tiny holes of the head.but if the ink is got stuck up hard the cleaning assembly in the printer does not have that much power to clean the ink in the head.the other procedure to clean the head is a manual cleaning.in this procedure the head needs to be removed from the printer by disassembling the printer.but in this case out of 100 only 4 to 5 heads gets cleaned and start working but that also don’t last long.its not any guarantee that how much the manually cleaned head will work.
In some cases it has been seen that ink gets used only in cleaning but after inserting new cartridges the printer starts working.if you have inserted new cartridges in the printer and still don’t get any printout then its advisable that you go for any other brand printer.hp is the best brand of printer. Or the other option is you take the printer to local printer repair shop to get the head manually cleaned if you at present don’t want to invest in new printer.a repair center have some special tools to clean the print head its 50 ---- 50 Chance.you can try that first.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya
