Head clogs after changing cartridges

My cartridges were all very low so I changed them all and did a power cleaning because I had not do one in a long time and I don't use the printer very often. Now I am having clogging on cartridge 1-3. I have run a number of regular cleanings but the probem is not improving much. It is the lower bands on the test sheet that are missing. The partern is consistent with each nossle check.
Any ideas on what I can do besides more cleanings?
Thanks,
Chris

Why is my canon is printing blurred lines


If you're like me you don't use it everyday which means that the inkjet nozzles become clogged over time. If you use the menu panel on your Canon printer navigate to the MAINTENANCE menu and run all of the different cleaning cycles pertaining to the print head and nozzle. You may have to run them more than once unfortunately. Fortunately, the cleaning processes are quite good.

Are you getting 'low ink' warnings at all? If so, it's time to change the ink cartridge that is low. You can tell either by the on-screen message on your computer or if you lift up lid to access the ink cartridges. They will center themselves after about 10 seconds allowing you to change them. Low ones will be flashing red.

Let me know if you have any problems. Don't forget to rate my response. Good luck!

CP3525X printer will not print the black cartridge.


Your ink cartridge is low, empty or possibly clogged

First step is to see will if it print a test page

Go to Start, settings, printers. Right click on the printer, properties, print test page.

If that doesn't work there should be a head cleaning option in properties that will make it clean the print heads.

If there is still nothing after that then either it's badly clogged, low or out of ink, and needs to be replaced

This may help

Turn on the hot water until warm
Put about 1/2 inches of water in a cup
Put the print head portion (where the ink comes out) in for about a minute or two
This will help to dissolve the clogged print head
Dry off the cartridge using a soft tissue.
Re-insert the cartridge into the printer.
Run the normal cleaning software routine a few times

This type of cartridge has the printing head in them - the possibility that all 3 ones are clogged is extremely low. If you get a bad printing with them it's because the heads are incorrectly commanded - either the pin array that transfer the command is damaged and they will have to be cleaned and fixed or the processor of the printer is dead, and the printer with it.

Hi


The ink reservoir doesnt have to be completely empty to fail. Replace the cartridges. Some of the jets or all of them may be clogged especially if you have not used your printer in a while. If there are cleaning instructions in the manual clean the jets and then try to print from the printer's self test


Goodluck

Hi Good day!!! try this trick ^_^ open the cover of your printer to see the print head, now turn off your printer you will see your print head is moving when it moves to the center pull out the power cord of your printer ( this trick is about good timing) if success the print head is now in the center now remove the ink cartridge (note don't installed the new cartridge yet) now turn back on you printer without the cartridges, your printer will recognize that the cartridges are missing, ^_^ and finally your printer will find the your inks after that insert it according to its location.

Hp 1300 series horizonal bars onprints please help


Print heads on the printer cartridges are dirty/clogged. Try running a few cleaning cycles. If there is no change simply change the cartridges. If printing photos let the machines know that's what you're trying to do, it will overlap passes with the print head to hide lines.

Color on photos suddenly has a blue - purple wash with no greens


Your yellow cartridge is probably not working as your photos suggest. Remove and reinsert the yellow cartridge. Try printing only yellow color.
Your printer has a separate head for printing; the nozzle for yellow ink might be clogged. Try running a head cleaning routine from your printer software.

Not printing magenta ink and tried cleaning heads already


Hi, one or two head cleans won't clear a clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:

Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink have some new ones ready. Hope this helps.
Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

Black is not printing. Have changed cartridge twice and cleaned heads several times


Most likely the printer head is clogged either you have had a bad cartridge that was dried out and dried all the black ink in the brothers.
the only way to clear this up is take it to a place that cleans the head manually, or try top get to the printer head and clean them yourself.
