Hello !

I will give you a number of reason or solutions that I hope will help you .

1. All of your printer heads are bad and its not helping if you clean them because maybe you havent been printing for a while the heads get dry.
2. Somewhere in the printer program installed on your computer there should be a helping program for cleaning. If you find it then the printer should tell you when the cleaning is done but the only problem with that function is that you are losing a lot of ink.
3. This is a solution that could work if the cartridges are dry. Take away the cartridges from the printer and put them on a dishcloth contains lukewarm water. Just for a few seconds untill you can see its clean because you dont want to destroy the electronic parts on the cardridge. If its working you will see the ink drain into the dishcloth or paper. Wait for the cartridges to dry completely and then put them in the printer.
4. If none of this reasons will help you need to buy new cardridges.

Good Luck
Best Regards
Joakim

HEAD CLEANING DOES NOT FIX GAPS IN NOZZLE CHECK


Head cleaning is for fixing horizontal band. If some point of head cloged, print out will show horizoantal banding. For vertical banding, try using head alignment. Have yo tried printing without high speed (disable high speed option)

Cant find out how to clean the heaD i have horizontal banding and colours are funny


Press one of the Menu buttons repeatedly until Head Cleaning appears on the LCD panel, and then press the Color Copy button.

When the On light stops flashing, print a nozzle check pattern to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle.

Press one of the Menu buttons repeatedly until Nozzle Check appears on the LCD panel, and then press the Color Copy button..

For further instructions read user manual.

Check status monitor see if cartridges are low or nearly empty , if new or full take out all cartridges and soak nozzles upright in cleaning solution overnight , or untill ink starts to bleed out:

Dab dry and re - fit , make up a A4 paper page with 6 colour bands about 1" high x 8" wide and print about 4 to 6 pages ,
check which colours are poor , if improvement is observed run
again a few times:

If one colour is poor take out that cartridge and soak again for a few hours , try again:

If no improvement replace with new cartridge or use a cleaning cartridge ( available on-line ) :

Using the head-cleaning utility shortens the life of the printer as the printer is set to lock-out after a pre-set use of the cleaning facility: and will have to be re-set instore:

MP700 Magenta horizontal stripes


I have the same problem. Here's the advice I found somewhere on the internet:

If a jet (nozzle) in your cartridge has gone bad you will see horizontal bands and/or white streaks in your print. Print characteristics may appear incomplete and/or the filled in areas on may not show up.
1) Run some warm water over the print head. This can wash away any ink which might have dried in the cartridge print head. Dry the cartridge with a lint-free cloth before placing back into the printer.

2) Clean the contacts on the cartridge (the copper colored circuitry) and the contacts where the cartridge clips into the printer with water or alcohol. After cleaning, insert and remove the cartridge from the printer a few times to be sure you have a good connection between contacts on the cartridge and the printer.

3) If your print is smeared cleaning the wiper blade may fix the problem. Do this according to your printer manual instructions.

Colour printing


If the test patterns are not matching what your printer tells you is normal and your photos are banded horizontally, you may have clogged nozzles and printhead. Do a maintenace clean under your printers direction, and see if it now prints ok. Also, you may be low or out of one particular colour, but still have enough of the others and the printer will try to compensate by using available colours, hence colour banding and distortion. A manual clean with cotton buds and cleansing solution is recommended if the first clean does not help.
