Hello, Andrew.

Go to Printers and Faxes and delete your printer icon.

Here's how to delete a printer icon in Windows 7:

1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.

Disconnect the USB cable.

Restart your computer.

Reconnect the USB to your computer.

Your computer should see your printer. Install the printer driver.

Hope this helps.

Replaced ink cartridges, printer goes through all the motions, but paper comes out blank. I have done all the maintenance steps. What gives?


Cannon ink cartridges go into a print head. This is normally a removable box the ink cartridge sits in.

First remove the head and the cartridges from it. Now try this to clean the old ink off the print head, rub/soak the print head in alcohol. Make sure the print head is complete dry and place the ink back in it and return to the printer. Try to print a page, if you have the same results you need to replace the print head.

My black ink is not working please tell me how to clean it


Hi

To clean it, remove the ink cartridge and rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. Then run the print nozzle for 2 time for further cleaning the print head. Then try to print again.

Another way is to soak the print head only into a how water for 5 minutes until ink loose up and ink flows, rub the print head into a plain paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows. Run the print nozzle and then try to print again

Hi my printer won't print black, test colour work but no black, therefore all text to print is blank. I have replaced the ink with a new one and cleaned it 5 times, still no black ink. Thanks


Hi

Clean it manually by removing the black ink cartridge and rub the print head into a paper with rubbing alcohol until ink flows more. Then run the print nozzle to clean the print head thoroughly. After, try to print again.

If not, dip the print head only into hot water for 5 minutes and then run the print nozzle.

My 5500 printer is printing blank pages - can you help?


Hi

Does the ink cartridges are new or old? How long did you stop printing? Because if you stop printing for a very long time, the ink dries up and you need a little cleaning for the print head. Remove the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol until ink flows and the run the cleaning maintenance like print alignment or print nozzle.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Are the ink cartridges just a few copies, I have new copier and print is very faint


Hi,

You need to clean the print head and insert the cartridge and check, whether it is working at fine because a dirty printer header will not allow the right formulation of the basic cyan, magenta, and yellow to print and comes up with the yellow color and not red.
If you still face the problem after cleaning print head then you need to check for a clogged nozzle. Clean the nozzle and then try printing it will work fine now.
To clean the print head from the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. Furthermore, you can clean the print head by Using a cotton Q-Tip & Isopropyl Alcohol and gently rub the print head with alcohol.

Hope this helps.

If you still have any queries, please feel free to ask us.

My printer won't print anything - only blank pages. However, both ink cartridges have ink. Please help!


If the self-cleaning cycle does not solve the problem, try turning the printer off overnight to allow the ink to soften. Turn the printer on the next day and try printing a test pattern to see whether the problem has either disappeared or become less noticeable. This ink-saving procedure can work effectively because sometimes the dried ink on the print head needs time to soften before the printer head can be cleaned completely. Try running the self-cleaning utility again one or more times.
Steps for Manually Cleaning the Printer Head

If the overnight cleaning still does not work, there may be a layer of thick ink that is blocking the holes of the printer's head. The next option is to manually clean the printer head. Follow these steps:

* Determine from the owner's manual where the print head is located.
* Remove the ink cartridge from your printer and then dip a cotton swab in hot water or isopropyl alcohol and rub it against the print head. This should loosen any crusted ink. NOTE: Be careful, especially if you use isopropyl alcohol to clean your print heads: Some printers use rubber gaskets, and if you get isopropyl alcohol on the gaskets it could dry them out.
* For models where the print head is in the printer, drop 7 to 10 drops of isopropyl alcohol (91% denatured isopropyl alcohol - not 'rubbing' alcohol) down the ink receptacle area where the ink actually flows from the cartridge into the head. Run a few self-cleaning utilities. If possible, allow the printer to sit a few hours or overnight and repeat the self-cleaning utility.
* If the print head is in the cartridge, soak the cartridge print head in hot water. Allow it to soak overnight. Dry the print head area with a paper towel. Repeat the self-cleaning utility.
* If the hot water soak did not unclog the print head, place the cartridge printer head in isopropyl alcohol and allow it to soak overnight. Use a damp paper towel to wipe off the print head area and dry carefully. Try the self-cleaning utility again.
* If the alcohol soak did not unclog the print head in the cartridge you may need to purchase a new cartridge. This will provide new print heads that won't be clogged. Contact a service technician for repair of print heads in the printer if the alcohol did not unclog the printer head.

Replaced ink cartridges with new ones, yet printing blank copies


If the printer sat without use for a while its possible the print heads became clogged with dry ink. Get regular rubbing alcohol that normally says like 50%+ isopropyl-alcoho. I'd get Q-tips to transfer the rubbing alcohol down into the print head area at the base where there are points that stick upward. I believe its 4 total (1 black + 3 color) or possible just 2. Just get a bit of rubbing alcohol into that area and clean excess away with q-tips. Let the printer dry out overnight and test again the next day. If that doesn't resolve the problem It's probably better to return the cartridges (if possible) and purchase a new printer (they are incredibly inexpensive nowadays ~$60)

When i try to print a document, only the color will print...any 'text' that is black will not print. i replaced the two black cartridges with new ones, and then the wider cartridge only registers as half...


clean the heads with white (ordinary household) vinigar not alcohol. The vinigar disolves any dried or gummed up ink which might be plugging things up. The alcohol doesn't disolve any dried ink so it can't remove any deposits.

If you do a good job on cleaning the printer will print just as god as it did on day one.

After being abroad for 3 months i can home to find printer not printing correctly i replaced the 5 ink cartridges but only 2 working Black and cyan


The ink has dried in the print head. If the print head comes out, remove it and apply rubbing alcohol or water with a paper towel to the nozels to disolve the ink. Once the ink seems to be fluid, replace the print head and ink cartridges, do a head cleaning and try printing again.

If the print head cannot be removed, get a childs medicine syringe, draw in some rubbing alcohol. Remove the non printing carts and apply a couple of small drops of alcohol to each ink port on the print head. apply some more drops to the ink port of the carts and replace and try a head cleaning and print.

If this does not work, continue to ask for help. The aim is to save the print head, not buy a new printer.
