The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.

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

Why do printhead give problems especially black


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in 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 thanreplace the print head.

I recently changed my carriage belt.The print quality has ever been so bad.Does not print clear lines,especially with the black ink.Always have some white lines within...Thank you. Nima


The printhead for black ink cartridge could be blocked.

It is better to run the Clean Printhead operation on your printers tools option.

You can manually clean the print head so that next time when you execute the Clean Printhead from HP solution center it will be successful.

First, remove the printheads.
then, pull up the lever at the top of the cartridge holder, this releases the print head.

The print head could be blocked, most common is the dried ink blocking the small holes in the print head.

Washed it in running tap water. It is best if you soak it in a mixture of water and ammonia and leave it overnight.

After soaking, you can spray it with canned air and blow those little holes to unclog it. Once it dry, return the print head and the ink cartridges and performed the alignment.

It won't print in black. We have tried 3 differant cartridges. At times it prints a shasding of the image. All the other colors work fine.


Use the HP Printing Assistant software to run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles".
The BLACK ink-jets are CLOGGED. So, no ink from any of the 3 different cartridges reaches the paper.

Suddenly stopped printing all colors. Will only


Hi, it could be few things wich you having problem with.

First, how old are the ink tanks, it could be clodged.
Second the print head nozzles are clodged at that places.
Third, the purge unit does not work OK.

First remove all inks out and remove print head. Then on wet cloth, wet it with distiled water, few times press the bottom of print head ( nozzles ), then the 4 circles must change from colour to white. That means that nozzles are cleaned.
Dry head by pressing it on dry cloth.

Put it in, also the inks, and run few times the deep head cleaning. Every time take a look at print pattern.
If the head is to badlly clodged, test pattern would be just a little bit more better.

But now you know if the problem is in head or something else ( purge unit or inks ). The new head isnt so cheap regarding the printer so then the best solution would be to buy new printer.
If you do not want to buy laser colour printer, atleast buy one on wich ink tanks has printhead on. Its slightly costly, but you have one worry less - the print head is changed every time you change the ink.

Hope that helped

Canon S900 Now prints murky and dull


Printing is Blurred/Colors are Wrong
? If a specific color does not print, check whether the corresponding ink tank is
empty. Replace if necessary.
? Print the nozzle check pattern to ensure that ink is ejected correctly.
If the nozzle check pattern does not print correctly, clean the printhead.
? Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
? Printhead Cleaning
If the problem is not resolved after cleaning the printhead several times, the printhead
may be worn out. Contact the Customer Care Center.
Note ? Always ensure that you dispose of the protective cap and protective tape
from a printhead.
? Ensure that you are printing on the correct side of the media.
You can only print on one side of certain media.

Canon i865 - black print is blurred/fuzzy on every 3rd line. Have done clean, deep clean, changed both 3 and 6 cartridges. No problems until recently. Beautiful full colour photographs clear and sharp,...


Your printhead has burned out nozzles, the black is the most used and first to go. It switches nozzles during printing for even wear, that's why every few lines you get bad spots.You need a new printhead.

Kodak 5300 first said error 3802 now says print head missing or loose


I got the same Problem as listed above. This is the way how I was able to solve it:
  • Remove the color and black ink cartridges and the printhead. (the 5300 Printhead can be removed by pressing a button on top of the carriage and a slight pull --> for better instructions use this official Kodak PDF)
  • Try to clean the printhead and the carriage with a slighty wet cloth from ink. CAUTION!: better not touch the green electronic chip! Be carefull while cleaning.
  • Reinstall the printhead and the ink cartridges.
  • If the printer detects a 'new' printhead just do a calibration and your are done. If not try to print a test page.

Hope this solves the Problem. Best wishes

Streaks / Bands of broken print area


First with a clean soft cloth and a very small amt of alcohol clean off the underside of the printer carridge (the holder for the print heads) also where the print heads cleaning station is clean out any large masses of congealed link. Then remove the ink cartridge in question and with a pencil eraser gently rub the contacts and both the cartridge and the carridge replace the cartridge. Using the software tools for the printer clean and align the printheads ( if there is an option to do so). If this dosn't fix the problem try a different ink cartridge.
