Question about Compaq Inkjet Ij300 Printer

Open Question

My Compaq IJ300 printer (which has a new inkjet cartridge) will not print when I attempt to print a page. I have the computer and Compaq IJ300 printer on. However, the white flexible ribbon that attaches to the metal "track" (which holds the the injet cartridge) will then jam and make a low pitched noise. Immediately afterwards, the two green lights on the top of the Compaq IJ300 printer will flash continuously. I have tried to reboot the system. I have turned the Compaq IJ300 printer off then on again. The Compaq IJ300 printer will not print whatsoever. Please advise.

SOURCE: Printing

Sadly, Compaq printers (rebranded low-end Lexmarks, the X11 in your case) were not robust at all. Since they were originally created to be a free pack-in for new home PC's, they were not really meant to be used for more than a year or so. It sounds like there is some build up around the jet area, this build up will smudge around when printing. You can try to clean it out with a few cotton swabs although if you aren't careful, some cotton fibers might join in the mess. Another trick I have done in the past is run a piece of cardstock through the printer a few times. Sometimes the extra thick paper will help scrape off excess inks.

If it is a black cartridge but printer was added indicating a color cartridge - believe it gives the 3 lines. Perform cartridge management and specify a black cartridge.

Printer ceased printing,renewed cartridge,followed all recommended processes.but it produces blank return.tried on several computers,can it be a head problem? I need to print floppy disc content Any advice...


The first 2 things I would do are check that you are using genuine Canon cartridges and run a head clean on the printer.

Head cleaning options are usually available under printing preferences for the device.

Triple vertical printing with Z11


Here's what worked for me: (I'm using a black ink cartridge, but my 'printer properties' were set for a color cartridge, thus basically sending a '3-color signal' to my printer; making it print in triple vertical.)
Go to Settings > Control Panel > Printers. Right click on your printer, and click Properties. Click the Cartridge Maintenance tab, then click Install / Change Cartridge. Select the cartridge you are using in the drop-down list, and click Continue. Print an Alignment Page. If this dosen't work, close everything and try it again: I had to do it twice to get mine to work. Hope this helps!

Printing Problems


My compaq ij300 was doing the same thing. I removed the cartridge, took a kleenex and wiped the back of the cartridge until it was completely dry and shiny looking...until no more ink would come off on the kleenex. Replaced the cartridge and aligned it using the printing software. I didn't use the test page, just typed a one-line document and hit Print. That took care of the problem.

Printer prints each line 3 times


There are a number of possible reasons for the problem you are experiencing: 1. The printer head might need alignment - use the printer?s software to align the heads 2. Does the problem occur with different cartridges? Try with an old cartridge before opening a new one. 3. If the ink is smeared you might want to clean the printer - make sure no hair or dust balls inside.
