MP 500 head needs to be cleaned

Hey... not sure if anyone will respond.. but... my MP500 cannon printer has one color which is not coming out.. i have done all the printer cleaning steps several times and nothing helps.. Is there anyway to get the head out and clean it with alcohol or something... are there any kits you can buy that will allow the head to be cleaned?
I need the color printer for printing anatomy pictures out so help is desperately needed.
Regards..
Richard.

I have a cannon pixma mp 500 printer and I and getting a error code 5010 how can I fix this issue? Thank You


unfortuantely according to canon website, if turning it off/on doesn't clear the error then it will require a "repair service". Doesn't acutally say what the problem is I'm afraid.

good luck

I've got a Canon Pixma MP 500. Printing from my computer = faded print. Copying = blank page. Auto head align fails. Alarm light goes on. Have tried stop/reset button. How can I fix this?


Hello,

It sounds like the print head on your printer is either clogged or not working.

You get faint print from your computer because the computer will use your color inks to get gray. When you copy, it only tries to use black and the black isn't printing at all.

Check your user's manual and it should show you how to clean the print head. Otherwise replace the print heads and you should be fine.

Thanks,

Pat

It's probably a blocked jet in the print head but could also be a page registration issue. Try gently wiping the print head with a cotton bud dipped in an alcohol based cleaner

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.


You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

Printer is pixma mp 500 help


Try reloading your printer program from either the disk that came with the printer or go to www.cannon.com and download the free drivers located within the download section. You might try changing out the printer cable if you have an extra one also. Check the default set up to make sure your computer is using the right printer. Some of the simple things have shot my tires out when I have spent time looking for more complex issues. :)

Our Cannon MP 500 is leaving a 1/4" wide black streak on the back side of copies. I have cleaned off the cartridge heads, replaced the ink tanks cleaned the heads to no avail. What is the problem and how...


HI Foster,
The problem is not with the print head. Print a blank page and if you are still getting the streak. Something is probably trapped in the printer or the rollers are dirty.
