Question about Canon BJC S600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Canon S600 has no longer prints the colours nor black - even the nozzle check does not print. The printer goes through the motions, but the page is always blank. All ink tanks have ink in them. I have not seen any error messages. I've tried the cleaning cycles several times - but to no avail.

I use to have a Canon with the same issue as yours. Do you refill your own ink tanks? If so, that is the problem because they leak inherently after awhile. If they leak then your print head is probably clogged. Was this a gradual problem or did it occur all at once? That will make a difference in troubleshooting your problem. Another issue with Canon printers is that you have to use them often of the print heads will clog up after a period of time. Take a look at this video as well. It may help you!

SOURCE: Canon i560 won't print black text anymore

I had the same problem, even when I only selected grayscale printing, my printer would use all 3 colors to make black, and my black cartridge would never get used. Try this:
On printing preferences change your Media Type to Transparency.
This should solve the problem and stop robbing your color tanks when you just want black

SOURCE: error 5100 for canon s600 bubblejet printer

try these points ----

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

SOURCE: Canon i960 prints but no ink on page-new printhead (not clogged)

Sounds like the print head is no good. This happens. Here's a link to a site that sells them reasonably.

SOURCE: Canon MX850. Print blank after ink changes.

That is a common problem on all Canon printers, the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, has a pump inside and hoses that go to the filters and ink absorbers. When that unit goes out you need a replacement. A job best done in a shop. When the printhead is not cleaned and primed properly you get blank pages no matter how full the inks are.

Canon i550 not printing any color, Prints in black OK but no color.


Please check nozzle head pattern first. Is your print head pattern printed perfectly?. Be sure that the print head pattern is ok. No missing line or column. If your nozzle colour is not printed at all even just one point,check the print head or try to clean the print head.

All colours and black print faded. Black is a


ANSER #1

Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.

If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged.

Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.

If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality.

Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink
tanks.

Note Before performing maintenance
Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action.
Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.
