Why do photos have streaks, even with new ink cartridges?

The printhead(s) are most likely dirty and need cleaning. Try using the cleaning program found in the printer maintenance. Also there are several cleaner kits for cleaning heads available on the internet; just do an internet search for your printer model to find a cleaning kit.

Printer will not print in black

Have you replaced the black ink cartridge? Have you tried the clean head utility? Find the printer in the Control Panel, right-click the printer, click Preferences. The Maintenance tab has a "Cleaning" button.

Also look on youtube for head cleaning videos of the head; these are videos to be used with a head cleaning kit after removing the head from the printer.

Skips lines in printing

It sounds like the print head needs cleaning or you are running out of ink. You can buy print head cleaning kits on ebay or so it yourself with distilled water by soaking just the bottom of the print head in it, keeping the printed circuit contacts out of the water. Dab it dry with paper towel and try using the cleaning cycle then see if all the lines print. You can, I believe, also buy a replacement print head for this printer if you don't get anywhere with cleaning it.

How do i take the head off to clean

Usually one doesn't need to be taken off to be cleaned. The small brush that is included with the kit will reach all crevis of the shaver. Don't forget to oil it afterwards!

If you are wanting to take the head off, take the two screws off the botton of the blade, remove the head. It should expose some areas that may need cleaning?

Poor video quality on vcr and external inputs, dvd ok

Hi this is a very common with vcr's the problem you are having is with the head inside the vcr what you can try is to go out and buy a vcr head cleaning kit this comes in the form of a tape and this will then clean the head for you without having to take the vcr apart.

but have you tried playing a new video to make sure its not the tapes your watching that are at fault, the problem with tapes is that over continued use the quality drops due to the tapes passing around the inside of the video also re-recording damages tapes so bare this in mind, i would try a new tape first then go for the head cleaning kit, if the new tape play rubbish then try the head cleaner and this will improve the quality, if the tape plays ok then its the tapes your using at fault.

you should be able to get a vcr head cleaning kit off the well known auction site or from most electrical stores,

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
