    I have a canon iP1500 printer. It's been working fine but all of a sudden it only prints half a page or an incomplete job. I already tried cleaning the heads, checking the page size, etc. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the printer software and this did not work either. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Check your transfer roller. Most print defects are commonly caused by defective toner cartridge or dirty tranfer roller. Be sure to snugly feed the paper and the setting is according tothe type of paper you used. Or see if one of your cartridge is empty or low on ink. It does not print altogether once one of the color is insufficient.

<<You can get a full page by printing at 150dpi.>>

Where is this setting found? I'll try changing it.
I have an Epson C120 Ink-Jet Printer that stops printing at
perferated sections. The printer is new and I've cleaned it
and adjusted paper quality settings. Am considering returning it.
Any advise?

On photos, If you have a laser printer with half a meg of RAM and you try and print a full page graphic at 300dpi you only get half a page because the printer runs out of RAM. You can get a full page by printing at 150dpi. could also be that the encoder strip has become fogged with aerosol, and needs gentle cleaning. Good luck

First, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Second, try updating the firmware of your printer. Just go to to download the firmware update.

If the firmware update doesn't help, please perform a maintenance on the cartridges. To do that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Maintenance > Deep Clean Printhead.

If it still doesn't help, please contact our technical support team.

Black ink won't print . have put in new cartridge still doesn't print


Try the following:

1. Remove the black cartridge
rub your finger against the small round opening at the bottom of the cartridge to see if you get ink on your finger.
- If you do not get ink, you have a problem with the cartridge
2. If you got ink on your finger perform the following:

Be sure that the Cartrige is inserted correctly and is perfectly inserted - Press lightly on both sides of the cartridge to ensure it is fixed in position.

a. open the Lexmark printwer home page. It should have been installed when you setup your computer
b. Open the maintenance Tab
c. Press "Clean Cartridge
d. Press "Print test page"
e. If Necessary Press "Align Cartridge"

I have a Dell 926 All-In-One InkJet Printer, I put a new black ink cartridge in the printer; still have plenty of color ink. When I have a document that I want to print from Word, it will sound like its...

Make sure you've removed the shipping tape from the cartridge's print head. More than likely the black cartridge is not disbursing ink - clean the print head carefully with "Q" tip and alcohol and see if black ink comes out slightly. Re-insert cartridge and try again. Perform "clean cartridge" in printer properties window.

My hp Photosmart 3210 won't print in color and it has all the color ink cartridges

Have you gone to "printers" and hit preferences and made sure your choices are correct? Yours may be stuck on "print in grayscale" using only the black cartridge. There are several pages to work with, and each needs to be "applied" and given a name which is easily seen in upper half of the pages. It likes it to be same name (i.e., my favorite or some such). I just had to go through this twice this week! I reinstalled the printer as it was not functioning properly. I find that I can set my all in one to quick prints, drafts, and so forth as there is plenty of ink on the settings in my printer. Saves ink like crazy. For photos I'd go normal or "photo" printing. Watch the "wet" ink, however, and put clean page between each page printed. Only takes a moment to dry. This is a great printer!

Black printhead has stopped passing ink over small section.

As you have already try with the new printheads and the issue still persist then the issue is with the printer hardware so the printer has gone defective

Hardware issue

Problem with printing page

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud


Printer not printing

Try a new tank, there are more and more people getting bad ink tanks. HOWEVER if it is a printer that has seperate heads you might have to change it.
