Hello, yes i do know what your talking about, sometimes paper will get blocked into this capping/purge/cleaning station, out of all the ones i have here, the one side for the cyan/magenta #88 printhead, there is no pad there. is it the cyan/magenta printhead thats drying up, or is it the yellow/black printhead. i would check to make sure that this unit is working 100%. i do know that this machine has issues with the electronics for the printheads, as well as the printheads seem to only last a few months after warranty, though, i have seen some last 1 year after warranty, but i would check to make sure there is nothing in the way of the capping unit, paper will get caught in there and some gears will break. i hope this helps

I have the Epson Stylus Pro 3880. Up till a few weeks ago all was well, the today, it decided not to print out the black areas of my shots. I've check the inks, the heads all is well. HELP


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.

The PGBK print head is clogged. I tried deep cleaning numerous times., It did not work. Others have advised me to remove the print head and clean it. How do I remove the print head? I looked at it and...


Good for you Deborah but I already typed this one up.

1) With the machine turned on, park your print head like you are going to replace ink cartridges

2) Remove all the ink cartridges. Turn off the machine. Put a piece of tape across the felts of the ink cartridges keep the ink from drying.

3) To the left upper edge of the printer carriage there is a 3 inch long metal handle - lever. It is under a bit of tension from a stiff spring but lift it and rotate it toward the rear of the machine. this will release the printer head from the carriage. The printer head can be recognized by the 5 felts across the bottom. Lift and rotate the printer head toward the front of the machine. it will come out easily.

5) THE BOOK SAYS not to touch the printer head or contacts. I clean both with a Q-Tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. If the head is really filthy soak a paper towel with rubbing alcohol and gently blot the head on the towel. the ink will be absorbed by the fibers of the towel.

6) Once you have cleaned the print head, move the carriage all the way to the left and spend some time with Q-Tips and alcohol and clean as much ink off the top of the purge unit as you can reach.

7) CAREFULLY examine the clear plastic tape just below the carriage drive belt which is the brain of the carriage unit and tells the printer where it is. Use a clean Q-Tip to remove any ink or grease which might have gotten on the tape. If any foreign matter remains on the tape after you are done, the printer will not work properly again until you clean it. I know because I spent several hours working on an old HP and got ink on the tape. It would not work until I noticed the ink and cleaned it off. HP technical support does not have this as part of their knowledge base.

8) I put a drop of water and a drop of alcohol on the felts of the ink cartridges and the printer head when I reassemble everything to so as to "loosen everything up".

9) Run some test prints and see how everything works

10) Remember the simplest things to fix are quite often the things we overlook when searching for complicated answers.

I have a canon iP3500, and its printing off... when i do a nozzle check the black set prints every other line down. I replaced the printer head and that didn't help.


You say "when i do a nozzle check the black set prints every other line down" I asume you mean every other line is missing when printing black? If so and you have changed the head which is usually the cause of this type of problem, Then the only other item that cause this problem is the carriage and its ribbon cables. It is not an easy job to do but its relatively straight forward. Have you performed deep cleaning on the new head. Are the missing lines in exactly the same place as with the old head? If you print a block of colour does it have white horizontal lines running trough it? If so then it will either be the carriage or the main board which is causing the problem.

What is machine check 055


Hi,

You are getting a carriage error indication (055). This can be a few things. First, you will have to make sure that your carriage rail is cleaned and there are no obstructions to the print head. Then I would recommend changing out the carriage assembly felts. There are two and they are located on the right and left side of the carriage assembly. Two little yellow or black if dirty O ring felts. You will also have to check your print head gap. You want to make sure that it moves from right to left freely when the printer is off and unplugged. If not you might need to perform an afta adjustment. If all is good then you are looking at a bad main logic bd. and it will need to be replaced.

Printer prints every second line or prints 4 lines then skips a line or only prints half a line.....the top part of the line is missing.


Hello sir; I believe it's time to clean print head and ink cell, power on the machine open the cover ( as you replace cartridge) , when carriage move to the center , then UNPLUG the power cord. then you may move carriage freely by hand all the way to left, noe you can clean up ink cell easily.

Message says to install print head and set the ink tank


I'm guessing this MP830 is not brand new so I'm going to get you to reverse the process so we can check what's in there.

1. Remove the cartridges
2. Lift the grey arm on the carriage (the bit that holds the cartridges and printhead)
3. Gently pull the printhead forward and out of the carriage unit

From here on in you need to check that:
a) you have a printhead after all (if you couldn't find a printhead then this explains your problem immediately)
b) the printhead is not soiled on the back where all the electrical contacts are
c) that the carriage unit has all the copper pins in place and none of them are bent, broken off, or otherwise damaged.


If the printhead is missing entirely or simply not responding and there's no problem with the pins in the carriage (#3 above) then the simplest solution is to contact Canon and order a new printhead (ref: QY6-0061). Canon in the USA provide the cheapest printheads and I'm guessing that's where you're based.

Once that arrives, install properly and then you should (hopefully) be good to go... While you're waiting though, I'd recommend putting the orange caps back on the cartridge ink ports to stop them drying out.

Hope that helps.

Black line down the page


Is the line on the front of the page or on the back? If on the back, you need to clean the platten which is the piece of plastic under the paper.

If its on the front, and you say "It lools like a rubber cover may be missing off of one of the rollers", could you upload a picture of this roller? I don't recall any covers on rollers in Canon printers.

Try this, print out a blank page. If line is still there, print out 10 blank pages. If line is still there and has not faded, this is unusual and may need servicing. There may be a problem with the encoder strip (it's a clear plastic strip with black lines running the length of the printer slightly behind the head), Try cleaning it on both sides with a little windex on a q-tip. It's delicate so be careful.

If the line looks faded after printing 10 blank pages, some ink has dripped onto something that is contacting the paper. This could be a roller, the bottom of the head carriage or even a hair or piece if dust that is stuck in the machine or on the bottom of the head. In this case, I would recommend cleaning everything. Revove the head (tell the machine you're going to replace ink, and when it moves the head into the centre position unplug the power cord.

Remove the head and clean off any dust or hairs on the bottom. Run a Q-Tip along the bottom of the carriage assembly wherever you can. Clean any accessable rollers. If you can get at it, clean the wiper on the purge unit (the unit the head sits over when it is parked), as well as the seals.

Reinstall the head and ink, close the lid, power up and retry printing.

I hope this helps. If not, there could actually be a fault with the printhead or one of the circuit boards
