Ink is wet what do you expect! All prints come out slightly wet some more than others mostly depending on the type of paper you are using. Make sure you are using paper for an ink jet printer, gloss paper is the worst, a porous paper allows the ink to go into the paper and not sit on the top of it.The last suggestion is also appropriate and very true, the higher the quality setting you select the more ink that the printer puts on the paper. Beside quality make sure that you select the correct paper type that you are using because that does determine the amount of ink that is used.

I have a canon MP600 I put a new #5 black ink cartridge in it, now it wo'nt print black. it shows full but only prints colors


Try wetting the bottom of the cartridge to see if ink will come out, it may just be dry, you can do this by placing the bottom into a little water or onto a wet kleenex, let me know how this works.

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

Ink levels show emptry.


Need one plastic plate that you don't care much about, or a plastic disposable plate.
Tear off one section from a paper towel roll and roll it up into about a 1-inch diameter roll.
Flatten the roll
Soak the flattened roll in warm water
Lay the flattened roll down on the plate
Place the nozzle area of the ink cartridge directly against the wet paper towel
Fold the flattened roll as needed to support the ink cartridge so it stands upright.

The trick here is to make sure the cartridge is supported upright so the nozzles come in full contact with the wet towel surface.
The wet towel acts as a wick to soften and draw out the ink.
After awhile, you shoudl see a kaleidoscope of colors on the paper towel. This indicates the nozzles have been opened up and the ink is flowing. Try to print and see what happens.
Repeat as needed.

NOT PRINTING BLUE INK


Sounds like the cyan print head is clogged or you are out of cyan ink. You can try running cleaning cycles with your printer or you can try to clean the print head yourself. To clean it yourself you will need dry paper towels and papers towels moistened with warm water. First rub the print head with the wet paper towel, then press the cartridge into the dry paper towel to see the three color bars (a good print head will have three solid fat color bars). Then you can try resting the print head on the wet paper towel for about a minute to get the ink to flow out (do this on a surface that you don't care about, ink stains). Then rub and blot the print head on the dry paper towel. Continue until the cyan flows again (if after 2-3 tries it isn't flowing you probably won't get it flowing). If you go to a Cartridge World store they have equipment to get print heads flowing again and they should clean it for you.

When this happen it means that your Fuser assembly and printer interior has toner contamination and build up. You can replace your fuser or run some more test print. Usually, the printer corrects itself.
