My pixma610 is not printing clearly. It leaves gaps in the print. All the ink cartridges have ink in them.

Do a deep clean cycle then a nozzle check either from the computer or the maintenance wheel on the 610.
May sure all the line are printed correctly.
If not remove the head and cartridges and take some hot(not boiling) water and mix it with2 oz. of Ammonia and let the head sit for an hour in a cereal bowl .Re-install after making sure the head is completely dry and check nozzles again.
If not working you either have bad cartridges or a bad head.
I have a new heads if needed.

Can the print head be replaced?I have an older printer that hasn't been used in a while. print quality is really bad, i've put new ink in

Yes it can be replaced, but this is often unnecessary. Printer manufacturers don't want you to know this, but if you get a shallow dish and place enough ammonia-based window cleaner in it (something that REALLY smells like ammonia, not the lemony other nonsense, or streakless) to cover the print head, right up to the pads that the ink cartridges sit on, and let it soak for a few hours, it will come completely clean and work like new. It's best to squirt the pads for a minute or so to remove the current supply of ink, THEN soak it overnight. Use a lint free cloth to pat dry the inside, re-install the ink cartridges in their correct spots and re-install the printhead. You're ready to go. While you're at it, clean the copper electrical contacts on the print head with a bit of isopropyl alcohol and a Q-tip. May as well be thorough!

I have a Canon BJC 210. Colors reversed, won't print black

take the cartridges back and stick to official ones. Remanufactured cartridges tend to be more trouble than they are worth and cost more in the long run fixing the errors they cause.

Get a refund as they are faulty and buy some Canon ones :D

Problems with Canon BJC S400 - will not print ink on documents even though I just changed the ink cartridge

Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Started printing light / dark blue bands instead of same shade. Tried cleaning but no different. Thanks.

Do a proper head clean.

Remove the cartridges and put them aside.

Remove Print head taking care not to touch the metal parts.

Boil some water, pour one quarter inch of boiling water into saucer.

Place the part of the print head where the ink comes out in the water.

Give it a few seconds, you will see the ink coming out into the water.

Sit the print head on some paper towel with the part where the ink comes out on the towel and let the excess water be absorbed by towel..

Replace print head in printer, taking care not to touch the metal parts.

Place cartridges back in print head.

Do some test runs to check the condition of the head, you may have to do a head clean or two.....

If that doesn't work try a new blue cartridge.

Usually works on my machine.

Canon BJC 80 prints blank pages!!

Power off the printer.
Unplug it, then plug it back in.
Wait until it stops its initialization sequence.
Press and hold the power button.
Allow the printer to beep 7 times, then release the power button.
This will reset the EEProm to factory default, and should clear your problem.

I had this problem several times, had to buy new print head until I found that to clean it you should use ammonia. It really worked for me. You should really try ammonia it does work.

    Printer problem

    I found a small plastic "clip" of the type that covers the print-head of a cartridge in the mechanism where the printhead/inkcartridge is mounted. I have no idea where it came from nor how long it had been in there but the printer works OK after I removed it.
