My 9500 printer is not printing one color and ive done the deep cleaning as instructed. how do i remove the print head so i can clean it?


Turn the printer on.
Lift the cover to expose the print-head mechanism.
The print-heads will slide to a position from where you can "unlock" the ink-cartridge from its holder, and then gently remove the empty(???) ink-cartridge.
Insert a new ink-cartridge (or refill the empty cartridge).
Close the lid.
Print a "test" page.

Please check the seating of ink cartridge. when you replaced it, it should make a little click sound confirming that the ink cartridge has seated properly. Please repeat the process once more. Also when you remove the ink cartridge check if the thin strip on the ink pad has been removed. If not then remove it before fixing it again.

Color is terrible, even with new color cartridges. Black & white prints out with "stripes" across the page. Almost EVERYTHING we print is illegible. Our printer is less than 1 year old, and we have ...


remove the cartrides, clean the printer head with cotton ear bud soaked in after shave (use only a mild men after shave) the after shave has a low content of alchol.
If the printer head is built in the cartride then clean the head of the cartridge, if the print head is printer based you may have to open the front pannel of the printer to access the printer head to clean it using the same method.

Cannon multipass F60 scanner/printer striped color printing


What you have is a dried up color cartridge. You can try to use the <clean print heads> in the diagnostic tools section of you priner software. (usually, just try to print something & the window will appear) Sometimes you have to clean heads, then print test page like 2 or 3 times before it clears up. If that doesn't correct it, don't worry. Have your color cartridge filled (staples, office depot, & other stores do it cheap) - or - replace it with a new cartridge. You may have to run the clean print heads program after installing a new cartridge, but this will definitely fix your problem.

Stripes on Images only - Text OK


Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.
