How do I get my Canon Pixma ip7220 printer to stop printing blurred lines?


Hello, my name is Steve.

This is an early sign of print head failure.

Soon it will give you an error code on display or ill be observed on your computer. The print head nozzles are not firing correctly. The only way to remedy this is to:

1. Have the printer serviced and cleaned ( the cost of the new print head and a cleaning and servicing of the printer

2. Order the print head online and install it yourself. The wonders of the internet can find an give you a video of how to do this.

The part number is: Canon QY6-0082-000 Printhead (Canon QY60082000 Printhead) I hope this helps, Steve

5802 error


This error code is related to a print head problem. Take out each of the ink cartridges one at a time and reinsert them. Next, go to the Maintenance menu of the printer and run the 'print head cleaning' cycle. If there is a 'deep cleaning' option run that, too. If none of the cleaning cycles fix the error code you can try removing each ink cartridge and cleaning the gold contact plate with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Be careful not to leave any cotton fragments behind and allow the alcohol to completely dry before reinserting the cartridges.

Cleaned the printer head now error message wrong printer head


Hi there,
Most likely this is a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:

(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. If for some reason it does not follow these instructions:
(a) Unplug the printer
(b) Manually slide the carriage over until you can get the ink cartridges out.
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

If that does not work then you have one of two possibilities:
(1) One of the ink cartridges is defective and causing the error
(2) If it's definitely not that, then the print head will need to be replaced.

If that does not work then the print head will need to be replaced. This is a common problem

Try the below steps are well if you are using Win 7,

Step 1

With the printer turned on, open your printer cover and remove the ink cartridges. Place the cartridges in a zip lock bag for storage (this is just to keep them from drying out or leaking).

Step 2

With the ink removed, release the gray lever to the left of the ink container in your printer, then gently pull the printhead out. The print head is the container where you install your ink cartridges. Be careful not to touch gold electrical contacts in back.

Step 3

Fill a small bowl of water, then stand the print head inside the water, covering the bottom of the print head completely. Let it soak for 30-60 minutes (the water will turn very black). When this is done, empty the water and refill with clean water, then let it soak for another hour. If water is still black, repeat process and try moving the print head around in the water (sort of wade it back and forth) to help remove the rest of the ink.

Note: Some people prefer to use isopropyl alcohol for cleaning the print head, but it's really unnecessary. Water alone will do the trick.

Step 4

Remove print head from water, then dab lightly with a napkin or cotton swab.

Step 5

Turn print head upside down, and let it drip dry overnight on top of a napkin or hand towel.

Step 6

Once completely dry, replace the print head in your printer.

Step 7

You might need to run a Windows Maintenance Cleaning before printing, but other than that, you are done. Your print-outs should be like new again

HI, can you tell me the procedure for 'cleaning the ink heads' on my EPSON STYLUS DX4400, Please. thank you, MARK


  1. Open the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
    In Windows 7, click Start then Devices and Printers. In other versions of Windows:
    • Click Start > Settings > Printers, or
    • Click Start > Printers, or
    • Click Start > Control Panel then double-click on:
      • Printers, or
      • Printers and Faxes, or
      • Printers and Other Hardware then View Installed Printers.

    • See How to open the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder in Windows in the Related Articles section for detailed instructions.


  2. Right-click on the icon for your printer and select Printing Preferences.

    Example: Windows Vista


  3. This will display the Printing Preferences window.
  4. Click on the Maintenance (or Utility) tab.


  5. Click on Head Cleaning. This will launch the utility.
  6. Click Start and wait for the printer to finish the first cleaning cycle.


    caution.gif Caution: Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer.



  7. Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern. This procedure will confirm the effectiveness of the head clean. You can also access the print Nozzle Check option from the Maintenance or Utility menu.


  8. Click Print.


  9. The printer will print a nozzle check. Compare the print out with the next window. If there are gaps, the print out is faint, click Clean, and then Finish when the procedure is complete.


    • If the nozzle check prints correctly (showing no breaks in the pattern), but the text is still broken you may need to run the Print Head Alignment utility - see How do I use the Print Head Alignment utility? for assistance.
  • If the nozzle check is complete, click Finish.
  • If there are gaps or faint print on your printout click Clean.


If gaps are still present, perform another head clean (without printing a nozzle check between the cleans). Once the second clean is complete, power off the printer.
Wait one minute before powering it back on, then print a nozzle check. Compare the printout with the example window (above).
  • If it is complete, click Finish.
  • If there are gaps or faint print on your printout carry out another set of head cleans.
  • We recommend only a maximum of six head cleans.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe

Canon iP 5200 orange light flashing 5 times


Hi
IO have one of these printers as my daily workhorse. Thankfully I haven't had the problem you are having.
Did you remove the print-head from the printer and clean it with running warm water?
When I get a possible print-head problem I always do that, rinse it until the water runs clean. Then dry it on kitchen roll making sure that the contact on the back are completely dry before refitting it to the printer. Generally this has cleared any problems (I have several Canon printers - I'm not just referring to the 5200 now).
However If you still get the error it may be worth contacting your nearest Canon service centre. New print-heads are not exactly cheap but these printers are so good it's worth keeping it going. They will probably be able to diagnose the problem quickly and accurately and tell you if it is cost-effective to repair. I don't know what would be involved with the Eprom error. - probably a circuit board change inside the printer.
