Re: cannon bubble jet s330 printer. the machine moves...
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.

Go to your local office supply store and by Ink Jet Cleaner paper. It will come in a small package and the paper will feel like thin, hard felt, and will come with instructions on how to clean your ink jet printer.
Check the cyan ink supply line for air bubbles. These printers work off negative pressure between the print head and the ink supply. If there are bubbles in the line the negative pressure is disrupted and ink cannot flow through the print head.
Actually it posible that it bumped the whole alignment off of the printer.(Not kidding )If you look inside, there is a "belt looking" thing that the cartridges ride on. On those type of printers (ink jet's, bubble jet's), once you get a major paper jam and it does that often, well...Try unplugging the printer, open up the cover so you can see the ink cartridges, if not than manually pull them in from of you, take the ink out, move the slide back in forth 3-5 times (carefully), make sure that the belt is not damaged and is still working fine while moving it. Put the cartridges back in, turn it back on and then run the calibration utility that cam with the software. If that doesn't work let me know...email@example.com
Try first replacing the cartridge , possibly with an original one. With new printer cartridge on do head clean a couple of times, to clean the print head. If it still prints wrong color then the print head is faulty, one of the colors jets is clogged. You can remove the printhead and leave it in cleaning solution or isopropyl alcohol overnight, probably you will need to replace the printhead.
you might not like it, but here it is, it is the truth
Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.
I don't know if this will work on an Epson, but it does on Cannon. The pads on the cartridges or the ink jets in the printer head may be cloged with dry ink. Get some Q-tips and rubbing alcohol (water is a poor substitute). Take out the ink cartridges and touch the pad on the bottom with a Q-tip (one for each color). If there is color the cartridge pad is OK. Take a fresh Q-tip dip it in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY rub the little holes on the bottom of the plastic box the cartridges go in. Thse are the print head jets. You should see color. You may need to clean it a couple of times if the ink has dried down into the jets. It is OK to have the Q-tip pretty wet, but not dripping.
