Not printing


The black print head may have blocked nozzels.
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.

After doing a deep cleaning for the nozzels it still does the same??? Canon MG2011


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent 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. Also try - Removing the print head, run it under hot water for 2 mins, then let soak for 10 min. then used a can of compressed air to dry thoroughly. It may fix the blocked nozzles.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

It won't print black ink even with new cartridge and multiple cleanings


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like the print head carrier, the printerhead has its black cartridge nozzles blocked, due to dryed up ink. Remove the back cartridge and Check the area under it, does there appear to be wet ink? if there is, then the cartridge is working but the nozzles are blocked. If the print head is removeable you might try to sink the bottom a bit in warm water to get the ink to dissolve from the nozzels. It should print after that.

just make sure the head is clean and dry before placing it back into the printer.

let me know how you get along with it.

My bjc printer won't print. The paper goes through. The head/cartridge moves like it is printing but nothing. Tried everything in the maintenance manual.


If you have fresh ink cartridges installed and you have run the head cleaning maintenance and still have problems then the problem is most likely the print head ink nozzles are blocked.
This occurs then the printer has not been used for some time. To keep the nozzels from blocking the printer should be used once a week or the clean head maintenance run weekly.
There is no option other than to buy a new print head, they are not cheap.

Printer prints blank paper. I have cleaned and changed all ink. It was suggested to remove the print head and wash it. Where is the head? Please help. Need this for my home office. Thanks


It appears that the print head nozzles are blocked, it is difficult to clean, it may be cleaned with a ultrasonic cleaner. Most likely you will need to buy a new print head, these are not cheap and you may find it better to buy a new ink jet prnter.
Inkjet printer heads tend to block up if used infrequently, inkjet printers should be run/used every several days to prevent nozzels blocking. If this is your case and you only want to print black & white, I suggest you get a laser printer. It is cheaper to run and don't suffer from infrequent use.
