Cleaning head and nozzles


Cleaning the Print Head


r_bullet.gifUsing the Head Cleaning utility
r_bullet.gifUsing the control panel buttons

If you find that the printout is unexpectedly faint or some dots are missing, you may be able to solve these problems by cleaning the print head, which ensures that the nozzles are delivering ink properly.

You can clean the print head from your computer using the Head Cleaning utility in the printer software or from this product itself by using the control panel buttons.


r_note.gifNote:r_space.gif

  • Print head cleaning uses both color and black inks. To avoid wasting ink, clean the print head only if the copy quality drops (for example, blurred printout, incorrect or missing color.)
r_space.gif
  • Use the nozzle check first to confirm that the print head needs to be cleaned. This saves ink.
r_space.gif
  • When the Error light is on and a message appears on the LCD panel to prompt you to replace the ink cartridge or to indicate the ink is low, you cannot clean the print head. In this case, replace the appropriate ink cartridge first.


Using the Head Cleaning utility

Refer to the appropriate section below to use the Head Cleaning utility.


For Windows

Follow the steps below to clean the print head using the Head Cleaning utility.


r_1.gifMake sure that A4 or Letter size paper is loaded in the sheet feeder.


r_2.gifMake sure that this product is on and the ! Error light is off.


r_3.gifAccess the printer software.r_arrow2.gifAccessing the Printer Software for Windows


r_4.gifClick the Maintenance tab, then click the Head Cleaning button.


r_5.gifFollow the on-screen instructions.


Head cleaning... appears on the LCD panel while this product performs the cleaning cycle.


r_space.gifr_caut.gifCaution:r_space.gifr_space.gifNever turn off this product while Head cleaning... appears on the LCD panel. Doing so may damage this product.


r_6.gifWhen Head cleaning... disappears from the LCD panel, click Print Nozzle Check Pattern in the Head Cleaning dialog box to confirm that the print head is clean.


Good: print head does not need to be cleaned yet.


d00_good.gif



Not Good: print head needs to be cleaned.


d00_miss.gif


If the nozzle check page does not print satisfactorily, you may need to repeat the head cleaning and print the nozzle check pattern again. See Cleaning the Print Head.


r_note.gifNote:r_space.gif

  • If the copy quality has not improved after repeating this procedure four or five times, turn this product off and leave it alone overnight. Then, perform the nozzle check again and repeat the head cleaning if necessary.
r_space.gif
  • If the copy quality still has not improved, one or both of your ink cartridges may be old or damaged and may need to be replaced. To replace an ink cartridge before it is empty, see Replacing an Ink Cartridge. If the copy quality remains a problem after replacing the ink cartridges, contact your dealer.
r_space.gif
  • To maintain good copy quality, we recommend copying a few pages at least once every month.

The printer will not print in black ink


Hi

Try going into Printing Preferences in the Kodak Printer Program and perform Maintenance.

You do not say which operating system you are using.

Start > (Control Panel) > (Category View) Printer > right click on the Kodak icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Nozzle Check > Head Cleaning > test print > repeat nozzle check, head cleaning & test printing until problem is gone.

If this does not fix the problem, replace the black cartridge > head cleaning > test print.

You might need to perform head cleaning after every cartridge change.

I hope this helps.

My printer will not print clearly it has lines throught the letters


You need to clean your printer's nozzle. You can do this by going to control panel, look for the option for printer (varies depending on what your operating system is), look for your printer's name and double click on it, look for the maintenance options where you can clean the nozzle and while you're there, you can also perform other maintenance functions like print head alignment, etc.

How do I print the nozzle check pattern?


Dear Sir,

plz flow this step for solve your probelm


These are the 2 important features for maintenance of your printer.


Nozzle Check


If your printouts are unexpectedly faint or have some missing dots or lines, it means that certain colour ink does not flow out nicely and consistantly. This is when you need to perform a nozzle check. If your nozzle pattern is good, then, your printouts will be good and nice as well. If your nozzle pattern breaks at certain parts, it means you need to clean the print head. Here's how to perform a nozzle check:
1. Click Start



2. Click Control Panel



3. Click Printers and Faxes



4. Right click your printer icon



5. Click Printing Preference



6. Click Maintenance



7. Click Nozzle Check



8. Click Print



9. Click Finish (if the nozzle pattern is perfect) OR



10.Click Clean (if the nozzle pattern breaks at certain places)


The following is the sample of good nozzle pattern and a bad nozzle pattern:

Good nozzle pattern:


good+nozzle+pattern.bmp
Bad nozzle pattern (Head Cleaning needed):



bad+nozzle+pattern.bmp

Head Cleaning



Head cleaning is required when the nozzle pattern is not perfect. Usually, this action is needed when you have printed a lot or you have taken out the cartridge for refilling or for other purposes. Here's how to perform a head cleaning:

1. Click Start



2. Click Control Panel



3. Click Printers and Faxes



4. Right click your printer icon



5. Click Printing Preference



6. Click Maintenance



7. Click Head Cleaning



8. Click Start



9. Click Print Nozzle Patterns (to check the ink flow after cleaning)

Help. Cannot print from black ink cartridge


Hi ....

There could be many reason for black ink not printing. You could try couple of steps starting with cleaning the print head ... Follow the below steps to clean the print head ...

After confirming that the cable is connected (if applicable) and the printer is powered on, perform the following.
Note: Standard print head cleaning can also be performed by holding down the <Resume> on the printer until the power light flashes one time. Deep print head cleaning (a more power process that uses more ink) can only be performed from the computer.
  1. Open the Printers folder.

    For Windows Vista
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.
    For Windows XP Home Edition
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel,' 'Printers and Other Hardware,' and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows XP Professional Edition
    • Click 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Printers and Faxes.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

    For Windows 2000/Me/98
    • Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, and 'Settings,' then 'Printers.'
    • Click your right mouse button on the listing for your printer, and then select 'Properties' from the menu that appears.

  2. Right-click the printer icon and select 'Properties'.

  3. Click the Maintenance tab, and then click the 'Cleaning' icon.

    ip1500_win_cleaning1.jpg

  4. Select which nozzles should be cleaned.

    i80_win_clean_3.jpg

  5. Click 'OK' to continue with the print head cleaning. The power lamp will flash and print head cleaning will start. Do not perform any other operations until print head cleaning completes.

    ip1500_win_cleaning2.jpg

  6. When the print head cleaning has finished, print the nozzle check pattern by clicking on the 'OK' button to determine if further cleaning is necessary.

    i80_win_clean_4.jpg

  7. Once the page has printed examine the nozzle check pattern.

    ip1500_nozchk_pattern_good.jpg

  8. If the pattern does not print correctly, click the 'OK' button to return to the Maintenance tab.

  9. Click the 'Deep Cleaning' icon.

    win_maint_deep_clean1.jpg

  10. Click the 'Execute' button after selecting the nozzles to be cleaned.

    i80_win_deep_clean_3.jpg

  11. Confirm the message, and then click the 'OK' button to start the Deep cleaning.

    ip1500_win_deep_cleaning3.jpg

  12. The Power lamp will blink and print head deep cleaning will start. Deep cleaning completes when the Power lamp stops blinking and lights. (It will take about a minute for the Power lamp to stop blinking and light solid.)

  13. Print another nozzle test pattern. If the pattern still does not print correctly, replace any ink tank that may be low, and then perform another deep print head cleaning.

  14. If printing is still not satisfactory, there may be a problem with the print head or the printer may need to be repaired.
This resolves the problem most of the time but if this does not work, please just leave me a note and we'll move to the next step which is checking the cartridge installation to check if its inctalled correctly or not ....

Please vote if this helps .... Cheers :)

Canon multipass mp 390 wont print black


FYI: This was Canon's reply to me (for my MPS 390) and it worked !
Dear Doug:
Thank you for contacting Canon product support. We value you as a Canon customer and appreciate the opportunity to assist you. We regret that black ink does not print from your MP390.
The issue may be with the print head. The print head holds the ink tanks.
You can print a Nozzle Check Pattern to confirm whether the inks are being correctly ejected from the print head nozzles and whether the print head is correctly aligned. Please follow these steps to do so:
1. On the MultiPASS control panel, press [Additional Functions].
2. Press '<' (left) or '>' (right) arrow to select [MAINTENANCE].
3. Press Set. [NOZZLE CHECK] will appear.
4. Press Set again and a Nozzle Check Pattern will print. If lines are broken or white lines are present, clean the print head nozzles.
Verify if the black grid pattern prints at the top. If not, then the nozzles may be clogged.
Please follow these steps to perform a Print Head Refreshing for the
MP390:
1. On the MultiPASS control panel, press Additional Functions. '1. FAX SETTINGS' will appear on the bottom row of the display.
2. Press '<' (left arrow) or '>' (right arrow) to select '3.
MAINTENANCE.'
3. Press Set. 'Nozzle Check' will appear.
4. Press '>' the right arrow to select '3. HEAD REFRESHING' and then press Set. The print head cleaning takes approximately 1 to 2 minutes to complete.
5. Perform a Nozzle Check Pattern.
Nozzle Check Pattern:
Please follow these steps to print a Nozzle Check Pattern to confirm whether the inks are being correctly ejected from the print head nozzles and whether the print head is correctly aligned:
1. On the MultiPASS control panel, press Additional Functions. '1. FAX SETTINGS' will appear on the bottom row of the display.
2. Press '<' (left arrow) or '>' (right arrow) to select '3.
MAINTENANCE.'
3. Press Set. 'NOZZLE CHECK' will appear.
4. Press Set again and a nozzle check pattern will print.
5. Check the printout for broken, white lines and uniformity.
If the lines are broken, or white lines are present, clean the print head.
Please follow these steps to perform a Print Head Nozzle Cleaning:

4. Press '>' the right arrow to select '2. CLEANING' and then press Set. The print head cleaning takes approximately 30 seconds to complete.
5. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern to see if the print quality is improved.
6. Perform Head Refreshing if lines are still broken or white lines still appear. If nozzle check pattern is missing colors, replace the ink tank.
Once you have completed two deep cleanings, please perform another Nozzle Test. If colors are still missing, turn off the printer.
After 24 hours, turn the printer on and perform one more Deep Print Head Cleaning. Once the cleaning is complete, print another Nozzle Test.
After you have completed the Nozzle Test, please let us know the results.
This may be caused by the ink jets in the cartridge print head (the device that holds the ink tanks) wearing out or the ink nozzles starting to clog up. Remove and reseat the print head. Verify that ink has not built up on the bottom of the print head. Please follow the instructions below to reseat the print head:
1. Power the unit on.
2. Open the cover of the printer to bring the print head holder to the center.
3. Remove the ink tanks and set them on a protective covering, such as a rag.
4. Raise the locking lever to release the print head.
5. Remove the print head and reinstall it.
6. Lock the lever back down, gently.
7. Replace the ink tanks. Make sure they securely snap into place in the proper slots.
8. Lower the cover of the unit.
If you have performed multiple print head cleanings but the issue continues, it is most likely that the cartridge print head (the device that holds the ink tanks) will need to be replaced.
If your MP390 is past the one year warranty period, Canon offers two options to assist you, Canon's Loyalty Program or repair at an Authorized Service Facility (ASF).
You are eligible for Canon's Loyalty Program. This option allows you a one-time opportunity to purchase a new printer that uses Canon's next generation of technology at a discounted price.
