SOURCE: will not print, I just replace the large black ink tank

I had the same problem after a long period of sitting idle , the ink clogs in the cartridge tray and no amount of cleaning clears it, you just use ink. I know it says don;t dissanble the print head but I have done it twice now and if you're careful its fine, remove the two screws that hold the printhead to the underside of the cartridge holder and gently lift the head out starting from the opposite side to where the copper coloured sheet goes around the corner from side to bottom it hinges on this sheet and it held in position by the screws and the two extremeties of the white printhead block.using tweezers remove the rubber seal which usually stick to the printhead - carefully, clean the printhead I used Maplins electronic foam cleaner spray and left the whole head tied in a plastic bag overnight, or several hours it cleans fast with the spray.
take the head out and just let the solvent evaporate, or wash it under the tap the trick is to refit the rubber to the holes in the cartridge holder first and then put the printhead back in position and lock it in place with the screws. should be fine.do a head alignment print all the colours should be sorted.

SOURCE: Won't print(after changing cartridges

blank pages and bad print are not the same problem. Regarding costly ink, a epson printer tech told me once that the secrete to cleaning a bad print head was to run deep clean 7 times in a row and then a head test and it has worked for me several times on other printers (not an expert here, just personal experience).

Additional note, I have seen both cleaning chemicals and cleaning cartridges on the web, example, searching google for one for my printer I would search for cc-bci-6c which is for a canon cyan cleaning cartridge. Don't know if they work but in case it helps.. good luck.

Barry,

SOURCE: iP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

MY printer prints blank pages


probably an ink cartridge problem..Try executing nozzle check on the maintenance tab on printer and faxes then check the results if it prints properly. if there is still a problem deep cleaning is recommended and if it doesn't work then its the time to replace both black and color ink cartridges.

Hi, Make sure that the cartridges are not blank. Clean the print head properly and check the nozzles. You may have to replace the cartridges.

My canon iP3500: Black print comes out patchily, despite many attempts at deep cleaning, Each time I deep clean, a couple of pages come out with the black print OK, then it goes patchy again.


It sounds to me like your cartridge nozzles are clogged. That's more common with recycled or refilled cartridges, but it can also happen with new cartridges if they are older. If you just purchased the cartridge you could try to return it. Otherwise, I would try to continue deep cleaning and nozzle checks until it starts to print. It takes a lot of ink, but sometimes that's the only way to get it to print. Usually it will work eventually. Do a nozzle check in between each cleaning and deep cleaning.

Black BCI 24 does not print after replacement.


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

The printer is printing blank pages. The guide shows the ink cartridges are not empty. I have run cleaning and deep cleaning and nozzle check and bottom plate cleaning but all test pages are blank.

Canon iP90 stopped printing in BLACK


hi... it might be that you need some time to let the ink absorb into the pads in the print heads ... this can take between a few hours and a day... Must be frustrating to deep clean three times and just seem that you are wasting ink cartridges, my "solution" would be to give it time or possibly clean the print heads manually.. hope it will solve it out..

thank u!!

3e Black cartridge won't print


I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)

Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).

Hope that helped..

Canon iP90 Printer Ink Issue


I have had the same issue with my iP90.  I think this results from the black ink nozzle becoming clogged.  I was able to get mine to print by cleaning the nozzles.To clean the print nozzles open the Canon IJ Printer Utility, select the printer from the list of available printers and click the maintenance button.  Then, select a cleaning or deep cleaning cycle.
