Go into your printers properties and do a nozzle check. To do this follow the following steps.

***Click "START"

***Go to "Printers and Faxes"

***Within this new window "right click" your printer and select "properties"

***You will now see a bunch of tabs at the top click on the one that says "maintenance"

*** then click on "Nozzle check" this will pop up a box that will give you 3 options.

***click on "Print check pattern" this will do a print out and if the grids show missing lines then you will need to do a printhead cleaning.

*** click the option that that says cleaning. Your printer will then clean the printheads and once its done it should ask you if you want to do another pattern test. Run it and see if things change.

If they dont then you will need to do another printhead cleaning. If the nozzle check printout doesnt get any better you might need to replace the cartridge or cartridges.

Best of luck..
Please take the time to rate my solution to your printers problem.

When i am printing it is all too red and very very grainy and patchy which cartridge needs changin


You should be able to print a test page which will show which carts need changing. A print head clean could also solve the problem.

Without knowing what make/model of printer and OS cannot advise any more.

My black ink is patchy, even after deep cleaning


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.

Incomplete patchy printing


Hello,

Please try to do a printer head cleaning. You can do it by getting a small earbud and soak it with a small amount of water. Or try to adjust it by doing an alignment. Usually, the printers have this functionality. Please refer to the user manual.

Grid pattern on Canon MP760 test print is patchy and cleaning process does not fix it.


You can try to remove the print head and ink cartridges.
Soak the head in an ammonia10-20% solution with warm water for 30-45 min.
Dry the head completely and re-install.Now run your grid patter,
It sonds like(from the grid reference)that only the black is clogging.This is a pigmented ink and tend to dry if not used for months at a time.
