    this cartridge is a new Canon ink cartridge
    the ink comes out in a blob, I have done all the cleaning on the menu and the head alignment

  • slozier Aug 29, 2008

    I have shook the toner as required , now the printer tells me there is no paper, in spite of the fact that there are at least 30 sheets of paper, can't make it quit doing this
    Patience is running thin

  • slozier Aug 29, 2008

    all the tape has been removed, I have checked all the cartridges to make sure they are clicked in, now all it will do is tell me it is out of paper

  • slozier Aug 29, 2008

    there is no paper feed button and it is not connected to a computer.

  • slozier Aug 29, 2008

    this is a Pixma IP6000D, there is no manual paper feel, it has no jams, has at least 39 sheets of paper properly aligned. I have had it do this before but usually finally picked it up, not so today.

  • slozier Aug 30, 2008

    cannot get the paper to pick up to see if my canon Pixma IP6000D will print after I shook the ink or not, it will not pick the paper up in spite of there being a lot of paper in it, no manual paper feed.

  • slozier Aug 31, 2008

    It finally picked up the paper with just one sheet, but there is still way too much ink in the prints, they are all bleary but getting better, maybe if I can afford to keep wasting ink and paper (up to about 20 prints now, it will eventually work it out.

Hi slozier, This coulr be a problem of LOSS OF SIPHON BREAK. Its symptoms and solution are given below.Please go through this: Symptoms:

  • My printer puts small dots of unwanted ink on the paper.
  • My printer spits blobs of ink onto the paper during printing.
  • I get extra ink on the edges of my paper.
  • I have ink on my rollers and it makes marks on the prints.
Solution: We have designed a siphon break into the Continuous Flow System. Without a siphon break, the ink can start to flow from the bottles into the printer on its own, making a huge mess. Our filling technique leaves about 5% of the cartridge volume empty. This empty space is an air pocket at the top of the cartridge. When ink comes in from the supply tubes, it drips on the sponge and becomes available to the print head. Without the siphon break, the cartridge would be 100% filled and a solid column of ink would exist between the bottles and the print head. When the printer starts to print, it is like sucking on a tube to start a siphon. Once the siphon starts, the ink will flow on its own, by gravity. Our filling method prevents this. If my printer is spitting, how do I stop it ? If your printer, with CFS installed, spits out small blobs of ink onto the paper, this is caused by not having a siphon break at the top of the cartridge. The siphon break can be re-established and the spitting will stop.
  • Tell your printer to print 50 or more pages of our PURGE6 or PURGE4 image (at bottom of Archival page).. Use cheap paper or the backside of used paper.
  • While the printer is printing, unscrew the caps from the ink bottles, remove the tube from the ink, so the tube is no longer under the ink. Set the tube/cap down next to the bottle. Let the printer continue to print.
  • The ink in the tubes will begin to disappear. When the ink is almost gone from a tube (inks are used up at different rates), then reattach the cap to the ink bottle so the tube is now under the ink surface. Do this for each tube. If you can't see the ink move in the tube, then print 10 full pages of that color, 8x10 image. This is enough to remove the ink from the tube. Don't get the tubes and bottles mixed up when you put the tube back into the ink..
  • Continue printing. When the inks have all reached the cartridge again, you are finished.
This procedure puts one tube full of air into each chamber of the cartridge and reestablishes the siphon break. Clean up your printer so there is no loose ink on the rollers or elsewhere. The spitting problem should be solved. If you have a lot of loose ink in your printer and on the rollers, try this. Get a clean sheet of paper and soak it with rubbing alcohol. Manually feed it into the printer by pushing the paper feed button. Do this several times (10 or more). The alcohol will mix with the ink and dry it, and it will also clean up the rubber grippers and rollers.

Hope your printer works fine after trying this solution.
Thanks

Press the Power and Resume button at the same time for 15 seconds then release power first then release resume. Try to load just a single paper first then try to print.

For the no paper problem:

1) Turn off the printer and remove all paper from the paper tray & disconnect it from the computer.
2) With the printer off, check for any obstructions such as torn paper or foreign objects.
3) Place 5-10 sheets of paper in the printer, ensuring none of the paper is torn or creased.
4) Make sure that the paper is flush with the far right edge of paper tray, move the left edge paper guide over so that it touches the left side of the paper.
5) Turn on the printer (still disconnected from the computer) and try to feed paper manually (using the paper feed button).

    its a inkjet printer and somebody has given the solution of laser printer.by shaking the toner side by side.if the cartridge is new and still giving you the problem.may be the cartridge expiry date is expired.or the cartridge is not detected by the printer as new cartridge.go to the install cartridge or replace inkjet cartridge coloumn in printer properties to make it detect.

    thanks.

    the paper detecting sensors which is behind the paper tray is stuck some where or little bit moved from its orignal position.try adjusting that.by giving slow pat on the printers body.

    may it helps.

This problem can be solved by shaking the toner from side to side. Also check that the printer is placed on a leveled surface.
Hope that helps........

I have a Canon MX850, I don't understand why my big black ink cartridge is full and it uses only the small one, how can I change to use the big one?


The printer use big PGI-5bk cartridge to print documents and text.When you print photos or some other pictures printer use small CLI-8bk cartridge because this cartridge has a photo ink.If you print text and it print blank page that mean the nozzle on PGI-5 cartridge is clogged.Try cleaning test on maintenance menu on printer.

    Reset ink level on CANON MP 140 PIXMA PRINTER


    How to reset the Canon MP150 after a refill (Step 10 concerns refill; instructions below the steps):
    Method1 (Safe Factory Method):
    1) Disconnect the printer’s power outlet
    2) Press and hold the power button while connecting the power outlet back.
    3) While still holding down the power button, press the reset button twice.(red circle with a triangle)
    4) Release the power button
    The printer takes about 10 seconds to show the number 0.
    5) Press + to change the value from 0 to 1.
    6) When this value is 1, press colour button; this will light up two leds.
    One is for plain paper and the other for photo paper. At this point is feed the printer with paper.
    7) Press the power button twice and the printer will print a some stuff (if it doesn't print by itself, then press the "color" button once and the test sheet will print). Don’t worry much about the printed material. I got some stripped lines and some numbers. I believe that my colour cartridge is clogged which is why I got the green strips.
    When you print this sheet the value in the display returns to zero.
    8 ) Open the printer cover cover (not the scanner cover) and remove the cartridges. With the printer still open, disconnect the power outlet.
    9) Close the lid and turn on the printer.
    10) Refill cartridges and place them back in their nice little abode in the printer.

    Red line on last quarter of photos


    I assume that the red line is not on the photos themselves (make sure this is the case - if they're scanned photos, it might be a scanner problem). If this is a 4" by 6" paper, set it in the printer after bending it in the opposite direction. 1) Set a sheet of paper on the printing side of the paper to be printed on. (If the print surface is touched by hand, the print surface may be soiled by skin oils, and the print quality may deteriorate.) 2) To bend the paper, hold the paper in a rounded shape for about 10 seconds. 3) Remove the paper not to be used in printing, and confirm that, when laid flat with the print side up, the center of the paper to be printed on is raised between 2 to 5 mm (0.2 in.) . 4) The curled paper to be printed on should be set in the printer, and printed, sheet by sheet. Canon recommends using Photo Paper Pro PC-101S 4" x 6" sized paper. When using PC-101S, printing is performed at the center of paper and streaks or uneven printing is avoided. If this is an A4 sized paper, try using Photo Paper Pro PR-101 paper, and make sure that the printing quality is set to "high" or "fine". If nothing helps, I would suggest trying a new ink cartridge. If you still have this problem and nothing solves it, call a repairman.
