    I have used two lexmark 26 genuine cartridges, and both have had the same problem, in that they both worked perfectly on installation but after a few prints the red stopped working and then only started again after the heads were cleaned using the maintenance tool in the lexmark solution centre.

Great job on cleaning the printheads! But if you're routinely cleaning the printhead, there must be something wrong either with it or with the printer itself. Either ways, I strongly recommend you contact Lexmark Technical Support for them to look further into this problem. Genuine Lexmark cartridges shouldn't cause you that much trouble.

Replaced ink cartridge- still not printing! help


When the printer is not indicating you need to replace a cartridge, and it is not printing good, most of the time the print head is clogged. Run the head cleaning program several times and if that still not works, remove the cartridge and put a drop of clean water or printer cleaning fluid fall in the nozzle, you see down where the cartridge was seated.
Then print a few pages, with the colour that would not print and continue till you see the colour come back again.
switch a ink jet printer on at least once a week. During startup the printer will perform a cleaning cycle. After a few minutes you can switch of the printer. This could keep the front heads clean for a long time.

Printer has stopped printing in black


Car,
Remove the print head and cartridges.
Take 1 ounce ammonia to 7 ounces of hot tap water ,mix in bowl and let the head set in it for 30 minutes.
Ink ports in the solution.
Thoroughly dry the head and re-insert.
Do a deep clean and try again.
If that does not work remove head and spray some WD40 on the head eject nozzles.(head upside down)
Be careful not to get the WD on any rubber part.

The colours are totally wrong on printing


First of all the print head is clogged just because you have tried to print repeatedly while some of the cartridges are empty. This results ink burn in the nozzle and clog. My recipe: Heat some drinking water in the kettle (70-80 C). Put the head in it and shake gently several times until ink is completely clean (10 minutes). Change the water do the same again. Change the water again (70-80 C) this time put a spoon full of apple vinegar (becomes a natural acidic solution very dilute) shake again, clean with cotton stick. I did it and started to love my mp800 again as much as I just bought it, all colours come back and started to print superior photos again...... Do not touch heads' copper poles and cartridges poles because of the static electric they may mulfunction and colours may becaome totally mixed for a short while...

Wont print in black at all even after numerous cleans etc and new catridge. Colour is fine though?


Hi,

* Buy alcohol solution (70% or more). You can find it in any drug store.

* Remove both cartridges from the printer head. Unplug the printer head from the printer body. Pour the alcohol into paper towel layer.

* put the printer head on the top of wet towel with the face of HEAD touching the towel.

* clean the head with the towel and get rid of all the built-up ink on the head.

* Pour the alcohol into the printer head container (ink-receptacle area is where the ink cartridge normally sits, notice a small hole where the ink flow into the printer). Do not touch any electronic parts and let it dry over night.

* Do step 2-5 again if necessary.

* Install the cartridge back to the printer and run several head cleaning maintenance, print nozzle check, make sure to repeat this step until no more dead nozzle shown.

Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.
