I have used "refill" kits in the past and for the time and effort involved you might just try finding a local retailer that will give you credit for the empty cartridge to replace with a professionally refilled one.
The problem with refilling the same cartridge over and over again is that they will, eventually, need to be replaced. I would suggest that you
1 - Make sure there is nothing plugging the hole at the top of the cartridge to allow air in, which is needed to let the ink flow out.
2- Install another cartridge and you get the same problem, then it narrows your fix to something with the printer.
3 - If it is the printer, I were rubber gloves and use "denatured alcohol" and a rag (no not use anything with paper as it can tear and leave pieces inside causing the printer to jamb) and after removing all of the cartridges wipe down anything that I can reach inside the printer.
4 - Although you have tried the DEEP CLEAN, if the none of the above works for you, try the NOZZLE CLEAN. If you are still having a problem then either re-post the problem or doe a Google Search listing the model of the printer you have, you may find out it is a problem that others have experienced and there is no solution.
you may try this 1) do clean nozzle cycle (do more times) until print normal, refill enough ink., not fixed go next 2) clean the color ink cartridge nozzles, put the cartridge down the soft paper damped with solvent or water, do it again untill to see three different color inkgo out on the paper.
How to reset the Canon MP150 after a refill (Step 10 concerns refill; instructions below the steps): Method1 (Safe Factory Method): 1) Disconnect the printer’s power outlet 2) Press and hold the power button while connecting the power outlet back. 3) While still holding down the power button, press the reset button twice.(red circle with a triangle) 4) Release the power button The printer takes about 10 seconds to show the number 0. 5) Press + to change the value from 0 to 1. 6) When this value is 1, press colour button; this will light up two leds. One is for plain paper and the other for photo paper. At this point is feed the printer with paper. 7) Press the power button twice and the printer will print a some stuff (if it doesn't print by itself, then press the "color" button once and the test sheet will print). Don’t worry much about the printed material. I got some stripped lines and some numbers. I believe that my colour cartridge is clogged which is why I got the green strips. When you print this sheet the value in the display returns to zero. 8 ) Open the printer cover cover (not the scanner cover) and remove the cartridges. With the printer still open, disconnect the power outlet. 9) Close the lid and turn on the printer. 10) Refill cartridges and place them back in their nice little abode in the printer.
Have you tried cleaning the leans at the bottom of the printer? Open the cover, pull out the drum. Under it is a long, narrow piece of glass. If it gets dusty or toner accumulates on it, it will cause streaks in the printing. If this is dirty, take a clean, soft cloth and very gently wipe it off.
Here are some things that could be causing your problem:
-Could be the paper you are printing does not meet the printer specifications.
-Could be toner leaking out of the cartridge.
-Could be environmental issues, too hot or cold or humid.
-The toner density could be set too high.
-The electrical contacts that connect the toner cartridge to the printer could be dirty or just not making good contact.
-the printer power supply could be defective.
-With regards to your toner cartridge are you using new IBM cartridges or refilled/remanufactured? I?ve had many customers call me to fix a printer problem that turned out to be a bad cartridge.
All of these are within the capabilities of the typical user except changing the power supply. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this post.
Have you tried a new cartridge yet? I know it doesn't make sense at first but I suspect the cartridge has a problem and your test print isn't exercising the printer like the Word doc is.
If the new cartridge works than the problem is probably poor quality ink, the hole you used to refill isn't sealed correctly or the cartridge or jets were damaged in some way.
