Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

  1. Unplug BOTH cables from the BACK of the printer, not from the outlet.
  2. Shutdown the computer.
  3. Plug both cables back in and turn the printer on.
  4. Turn the computer back on. That's it!

Printer prints nothing - it's speaking to the pc, it sounds like its printing, the paper goes through but comes out blank. Any ideas?


Check for the inks. If they are still full, try taking them out and clean the printhead as some ink got dried and blocked the passage where the ink goes out. Also, it would be wise to shake the ink cartridges to distribute the ink evenly.

Printing intermediately


When you say print an inch then blank an inch. Does the paper move and the head work and imply leaves blank paper? Or do mean the printer stops a while then picks up from where it left off. Is this a bubble jet?- That is does the cartridge come with the heads built in and a contact strip on the side - Or is it the other sort where the cartridge is an ink tank and the head stays in the machine, but are removable? If you get a completed document but with blanks this is a head problem. If you get a complete full document but the takes breaks this is a computer spooler problem A head problem Take the cartridge and/or head out of machine and stand in a saucers with a tissue damped in a water /alcohol mix -Windex, or car screen wash, even Jack Danials or your favorite spirit. When the tissue is thoroughly discoloured[leave overnight]- replace and give the machine ar un and come back. If it is taking breaks but eventually giving a complete document then check out drivers/Scratch disk and software on the computer.
