SOURCE: Cleaning the heads on a Epson Photo R300

Unfortunately, the printhead can only be removed by disassembling the printer and paying for the parts if defective. It is just not worth it. If you have already tried new inks (just replace one - not all) and this number of cleaning cycles - there is nothing else. At this point replacing may be the best solution if you are out of the one-year warranty period.

SOURCE: kodak 5300 aio printer won't print black

My 5300 printer is only 15 month old and has developed a fault, it will not print in Black. The photo side 6x4 is great but on the A4 side the text is grey and the photos discoloured. I have gone through cleaning the heads both basic and deep, no joy, have recalibrated still no good, any solutions.

Thanks
Dave

SOURCE: How do I remove a Canon 730 Multipass print head

Press the button on the right hand side of the printer. Lift the lid, pull up the little gray handle. Rock the print head container a bit and you'll see a little metal bar. Grab that and pull straight up.

SOURCE: Brother DPC-165C has 'Init Unable AF' error

Yup. I suspect the head has been removed from the unit. There are adjustments on some printers. It was assembled wrong. The grating noise is likely the auto cleaner. If it cannot go 'home' the unit will not initialize. Possibly the head detect sensor is broken or covered. If the head will not home (moves out and back more than once or slams home hard), 'Init Unable AF'. You may be able to order a service manual from Brother for this. A repair shop can order the manual as well. (I suspect you need a new print head as well. You might want to replace the printer) see tips on bubblejet printers.

Sounds like a cleaning issue.

My printer won't complete the cartridge alignment function. It only prints the first two bars and then stops. When printing the black cartridge looks faded and half printed lines across even though it is a...


My printer does the same thing. I changed the blank ink yesterday (the printer shows the black ink was low) however after trying and trying and not being able to complete the alignment I decided to change the color ink as well.
It worked. Printer works fine now. Sometimes the ink dries up and you have to change it even though you know it should last longer.
Give it a try and let me know.

Using Canon iP4600, I'm trying to print a black-and-white photo with a black background and a half-tone image in the front, but I keep getting purplish and black stripes instead of an all black background....


Hi there

Sometimes, printers use colors from the other cartridges in order to form a deep black colour. It does seem that not enough pure black ink is getting onto the paper.

Can you check that there is enough black ink remaining? If so, go to the print options of the program from which you are trying to printer the image, and set the colour output to black or greyscale only. This may be within an option called Printer Preferences from the Print dialogue window of the program from which you are printing from.

Then, print an image as a test and see if it comes out in black only this time.

I look forward to your reply.

Regards

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

Backlit print problem on Mimaki JV33


Hello Mimaki Backlit person,
I had a similar problem with an HP flatbed printer on backlit material. I corrected it (mostly) by lowering the print head to the sheet. Yeah, sounds crazy, and you might have to use a profile which uses less ink, but not only did it clean up the white areas, it sharpened the color edges. Even more important to have clean material and machinery, of course.
I would think that lowering the head would cause blurring and smears, but no. Also, the material I was using had been changed by our supplier, which explained why it worked great before and not now. Suppliers frequently swap items for cheaper material, even replacing one option with their cheaper choice, telling me "OH, it's the same thing."
Yeah, right. Good Luck!

When you print stop the printer half way through then check the image on the opc drum and transfer belt to see if it's complete or not, also you may want to check the aidc sensor (sometimes the cable comes loose).

1) Under printer options make sure that greyscale is NOT selected. I.E. Color Printing.

2) Make sure page layout is set to 1 (Not 2 per page)

Check margins of page are set to minimum size.

Canon MP500 Printing Problem


I had same problem today. Removed print head and bathed it in alcohol for half an hour. Then I removed the two screws underneath and used a syringe to squirt alcohol into the ports and clean. I noticed clumps of ink coming out (i guess some ports were blocked). I then dried the head and reinserted and reinstalled ink tanks. All looks good so far- black printing again and printed test patterns all look correct. Good luck.
