Go to your start menu/settings/printers and faxes,right click on your printer and go to printer preferences and to your maintinence tab. youll be able to clean your heads from there. just to warn you might have to keep cleaning untill it runs clear and it does use a lot of your ink.

hope it helps

Changed black cartridge and now only colour printer will print in is blue/green


The black print head most likely is blocked with dried ink.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Majenta is not printing, all cartridges changed and cleaned still no majenta


Blocked print head nozzles
You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

I replaced the blue ink cartridge and now all colors look blue.


You say all colours look blue? If this is true, does black look blue? If so then black is not printing at all so blue takes over. Did this machine print colours ok before you changed cyan? I would suspect that you are using compatable ink cartridges and they are suspect. check that all the cartridges are in the correct positions. Then run the cleaning cycle and see what happens. If the problem still persists then I would change the print head. The print head part number is QY6-0073-000.
Good luck

Ink cartridge problem?


Try to re-seat the ink cartridge.

  1. Press your printer's button to position the ink heads for replacement
  2. Then gently pull out the problematic ink cartridge.
  3. Turn the printer OFF to reset the printer's memory.
  4. After about 3 minutes, turn ON your printer and it should now ask for the missing ink cartridge.
  5. Now gently put on the problematic ink cartridge in place.
  6. Let the printer re-charge the inks and clean the ink heads afterward through the printer's maintenance program installed in your computer. (Go to "Printer's and Faxes, right click on your installed printer, then click "Printer's Preferences. Go to the "maintenance tab" and click on something like Print Head Cleaning.)
Just give it a try.

Changed ink and now the printer wont print


The old ink has probably dried, plugging the jets. Try going through the cleaning cycle (several times if necessary). If it begins to print at all then let the printer set overnight and try cleaning again.

Does not print the black colour; all the other colours are perfect, except the black. I replaced the cartridge ( a completely new one ) and still does not work.


Try to run Head Cleaning utility of your printer. This will force your printer to recharge so that it can dispense black ink that you placed recently.

If you are using Windows:

  1. Click Start button => Settings => Printers and Faxes
  2. Locate your printer icon. Right click on it and click "Printing Preferences".
  3. Look for the "Maintenance" Tab in the window that appears. There you will see commands for "Alignments" and "Head Cleaning" or some similar commands.
I suggest that you just perform this once since Head Cleaning consumes ink.

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

I recently installed new black ink cartridge. Since doing so, the colors on anything printed are incorrect. For instance, anything red prints as pink. Anything deep yellow prints as a gold. MY...


Hi maryryherd - yes the C64 is in the list - don't know why you couldn't see it.

The inkjet colour system can be quite confusing. The colours in the cartridges are cyan, magenta and yellow, plus black. Other colours require a mixture of these basic ones. For example, to produce "red" requires a mixture of magenta and yellow. Your problem sounds like you are getting insufficient yellow, and maybe insufficient black.

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Are all the 3 colour bands plus black printed OK. If not, try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing pretty well, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back with a new comment.

Canon MP830 printing with interlacing shades of black


your printer cartridge or head unit ink channel (some of color or black ink channel) constipated, you may try:
1) if your ink cartridge is not new, take out the cartridge put the bottom surface touch cleaner liquid(special for ink printer) or water for 1 hr (you can see ink spread water), then set back and test. refill enough ink maybe necessary.
2) still trouble, you need clean print head ink channel to do same thing above, if your print head is separated from the cartridge.

Epson Photo R265 Lines every 2.5 cm


Check status monitor see if cartridges are low or nearly empty , if new or full take out all cartridges and soak nozzles upright in cleaning solution overnight , or untill ink starts to bleed out:

Dab dry and re - fit , make up a A4 paper page with 6 colour bands about 1" high x 8" wide and print about 4 to 6 pages ,
check which colours are poor , if improvement is observed run
again a few times:

If one colour is poor take out that cartridge and soak again for a few hours , try again:

If no improvement replace with new cartridge or use a cleaning cartridge ( available on-line ) :

Using the head-cleaning utility shortens the life of the printer as the printer is set to lock-out after a pre-set use of the cleaning facility: and will have to be re-set instore:
