Question about Canon MultiPASS MP360 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Not printing in black (not a cartridge or head drying)

My CanonMP360, after a change of black cartridge, don't print in black. I use it every day and I hadn't any problem before. I use the original Canon24 cartidge. I tried another cartidge of Canon 24 black. Same problem. I made a deep cleaning too. What can I do more? Change haed? Change head's cable? Or something easier solution? Thank You!

Changed black cartridge and now only colour printer will print in is blue/green


The black print head most likely is blocked with dried ink.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Hi Allan

BROTHER DCP-165C BLACK INK NOZZLE BLOCKAGE CLEANING

If your printer is under warranty then take it to a Brother Service Center for Print Head Maintenance.

If not and you are technically minded and/or adventurous, then you could try to clear the likely cause of this fault (potential blocked micro-nozzles on the print head) yourself.

Remove all the cartridges, wrap them in clingwrap/clingfilm and then place them (upside down) on an old newspaper to minimize accidental leakage > remove the print head (a small square, gold, patterned contact plate sitting at the back of the cartridge compartment) > immerse the print head in a solvent for 24 hours (sometimes longer). Below is a webpage showing you how to create, handle, store, use your own solvent recipe to and safely and responsibly dispose of used solvent:

http://www.ehow.com/how_6614390_homemade-solvent-clean-print-head.html

Remove and blow dry the print head until completely dry > reinstall print head > reinstall cartridges > repeat head cleaning and test print procedures again.

For the future, either with this or any other printer, please remember these tiny micro-nozzles can very easily become blocked with dried ink. You can protect against this by always using good quality ink, printing regularly to keep ink flowing through the system (including the odd unnecessary test print, if necessary), replacing empty cartridges without delay, not allowing drying air to dry ink residue in the micro-nozzles by never leaving a cartridge space empty for more than the few seconds it takes to change a cartridge, always fully prepare, unpack, unclip and unpeel the new cartridge before removing the empty one, try to avoid being distracted while changing cartridges (so easy to forget and leave a cartridge space empty and the cartridge bay open).

Please don't hesitate to ask for more help if you need it.

I hope this helps.

Most likely this is a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:

(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

Kodak esp 3250 won't print black. Changed cartridge and still won't print black. Just installed new printer.


I fixed my ESP 3250 print problems by removing the cartridges and print head. Using a Q-tip and warm water, added drops of water to each of the print head ink wells until the water / ink from the wells bled thru onto a cleanex. Did this several times. Dryed the print head fairly well. Then added a drop of water to each cartridge for each color. Reasembled and ran an alignment and to my surprise, it works! I hadn't used my printer in a while, so the ink had dryed on the felt for both the print head and cartridges.......

My black ink printed very faint lines, changed the cartridge and did a print head cleaning, and now it doesn't print black at all.


Make sure you didn't get an old cartridge where the ink is dried up. Check the bottom of the cartridge where the ink comes out. Does the ink seem fresh and liquid or old and sticky or dried out? This happens. If its not that then you might have clogged jets on your printer head. To clean these you have to drop a few drops of isopropyl alcohol down into the inkjet heads (the little holes that the ink from the cartridge goes into) and allow it to soak overnight. The next day wipe with a q-tip. Place a cloth beneath the inkjet heads to catch any drippings overnight.

Remove ink cartridges,then print head.
Clean print head with dry cue tips.

Incomplete printing of black text


try this.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.
