I would try and reseat the cartridges first then do the 3 cleaning cycles thru the printers driver. that would be in the maintence tab untill i get a good output.

Take off the rigth side of the printer it snap off used a plain screw driver and pliers be careful taking it off.

Pull the whole plastic ink compartment out .

Take off the two tubes going to a small hub clean the black tube about three inches long. Then clean the clear tube with a green line on it. Put every thing back. Good Luck

No ink on print out from canon mg6150, please help


how much ink is in the ink Cartridges?
have you changed the ink cartridge recently ?
You may need to clean the print head.
see http://www.cityinkexpress.co.uk/cheap-printer-cartridges/canon/pixma-mg6150/mg-series/cleaner/printhead-cleaning-cartridge/yellow

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Printhead-Ink-CLEANING-KIT-Fix-Canon-PIXMA-MP990-MG6150-MG6250-QY6-0078-000-New-/250992770857

seems to look like it may be a manual procedure with the mg6150 rather than a computer setting in the printer properties. Look under properties to see if there is a computer generated head clean .

Lexmark 730 not printing


Regarding the Lex1 cartridge's no printing/severe fade (or similar) during printing, my answers are provided below:

For the poor print quality problem (degraded image quality) you are observing, we suggest you first visit the "Print Quality" page of the "General Information" section of the Inkjet 411 website and follow the suggestions provided: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1432

A. 1. Cartridge & Printer maintenance should also be evaluated - ensure both ink cartridges and flexible driver contact cables (where the cartridge interfaces to the carriage inside the printer) are thoroughly clean: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.2. Perform a hot-water flush on the suspect ink cartridge, refer to video procedure here: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

A.3. Run a quick test print to evaluate cartridge performance (i.e. 4-color test print):
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=146

For information on North American ink refill services (for Lexmark 1, 2 and 3 ink cartridges) at a major retailer near you (should you wish to save ~50% on ink costs), general printing problem resolutions or advanced Lexmark printer diagnosis procedures (advanced cartridge diagnostic tests/cartridge error bypass & printer reset methods, etc.), please visit Inkjet411: http://www.inkjet411.com

All 8 new ink cartridges, new MT tank, nothing prints. it goes thru the motions of rinting, but no little to no ink is on paper, less and less ink each subsequent print. Most recent print has a hint of...


take your ink cartridge out from your printer. you can see at the ink carriage there are little pipes where the ink usually flow from cartridge. If head cleaning and power cleaning does not work, then try to clean those pipes by using 96% alcohol fluids and **** the pipes using something.

Nothing prints out on paper.


Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

Have you removed the tear off tape from top of cartridges, it lets the air in and ink flows.

Ink not dry and significant smudging


there r various modes in the printer in which u have to print .and that u have to select.as you said it is printing properly on ordinary paper.the printer is perfect.the photo paper have less soaking power that ordinary paper.as the photo paper can consume ink but not so quickly as ordinary paper.
u just change that printmode and then check out how it prints.
for example the modes r ----------best mode printing.
better mode printing.
fine mode printing
normal mode printing.
draft mode printing
economy mode printing.
now i f u print in best mode it will consume lots of ink but will take lots of time to print.
if u select normal mode it will consume less ink and print quickly.

u can change the settings in printer properties.
thanks

Can we print with other three Color ink cartridges when Black Ink cartridge is emptied?


hi,

as u have ran out of ink you cant print anymore... you have to replace a new ink cartridge.... this is because when u print something, the colors will get mixed to print the exact color.... even if u are printing only in black, some other colors wil get mixed to produce the black color on the paper... so u need to change the ink cartridge.... u cannot run with a blank filled ink cartridge.... and the selection of your printer is very good...

thanks and regards
