Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Canon pixma iP 1500 Will hardly print in black. I tried cleaning the gold "slots" where the ink comes out, but it has not helped much. My cartridge is low.... so at this point it could be the problem. Any help would be great.

Canon pixma ip 1500. Will not print black ink. Have cleaned, and deep cleaned nozzles. Color prints good, black does not print at all.


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.

Prints black


Remove the print head, inks come out first. then lift the arm on the right of the head , it lifts out , never touch the gold pads on the back be very carful of the bottom print head. don't let cotton or tissue clog or get in the very fine print head nozels. so dont rub hard be very gentle let the alcohol do its job. soak at least 5 min.
clean the head with alcohol, let it sit on a soaked clean cloth saturated with 96% isoprople. ink will flow out on to the cloth its
ok put fresh full inks back in and deep clean right away and all should be well

Printer head ip 1500


Printhead is dead, and here Canon gotcha because a printhead for ip1500 is more expensive as the whole printer.
So kiss your printer good bye and get a new one, but at least this time get one that uses cartridges with printhead ON THE CARTRIDGE (like HP and Lexmark) or, if you are in love with Canon, take one that uses the cartridges PGI-5 for black and CLI-8 for color, they also have sepparate printhead from cartridge but it seams they are more durable. And easy to refill, as well!

Hope it helped you in any way!

Rate this solution please. Thx.

1. Unplug the POWER cord.
2. Press & hold the power button.
3. Connect the power cord WHILE holding the power button.
4. Keep on holding the power button for about 30 seconds.
5. Release the power button. The printer should be turned off.
6. Turn the printer on and that's it!

NOTE: You have to do this every time you turn on your printer. Or you will get the waste pad full error.
