Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer

No Print My printer was working fine and all of a sudden it stopped printing. It continues to go thru the motions and noises and spits out paper, but no printing. I have checked and even replaced black cartridge just in case. What gives?

Use a pencil eraser to carefully clean the electrical copper contacts in the body of the printer where the cartridge connects

Paper jams after printing 1/3 page. continue s to print on on wrinkled paper until file is totally printed


The rollers need cleaning. Office supply stores carry cleaning paper. It's sticky on both sides. Run it thru without printing on it. That should fix it.

My dell printer goes through the motions of printing but keeps coming up with a blank page. I have reinstalled the printer, unplugged it to reset any codes, cleaned the cartridges with warm paper towel,...


Hi

Please try to add or set up the printer again and set it as default printer. and then try to print the test page.

If not, remove the cartridge and rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol until inks flows on the paper. Return the cartridges and run the print nozzle for 2-3 times. Then try to print again.

Please let me know if you need more help. Please rate my solution if it helps you or might help others.

How can identify if taht thing is a form of laser print not inkjet print?


First approximation - by weight :) Seriously :) Heavier will most likely be a laser printer :)

Apart from that, if the printer works, and when printing you hear something going back and forth inside, and the paper is going out gradually, it's an inkjet. If the printer gives a more-or-less continuous noise and the paper comes out after a while in one continuous, quick and smooth motion - it's a laser :)

Also if you open the covers, and find a big, bulky toner cartridge - it's a laser.

And the simplest to do - put the printer model name in Google and search for it's specifications :)

Kodak ESP-3 Will not print calibration page. It goes thru the motions, spits out blank paper. This is supposed to happen prior to connecting to computer or installing software. Tried two printheads


I have severe and often different problems with my Kodak ESP-3 printer. Sometime it`s banding of the colors, then I`ll align the printhead and I`ll have a color problem or no color at all. I just talked to Kodak Customer Service by phone, 11 a.m. PST. After a few automated questions I had a live operator in less than 3 minutes. The service tech went thru some diagnostic steps with me and the printer and after about the 5th step determined I had a faulty printer head. If the green on/off light keeps blinking when it shouldn`t be, that is a sure sigh of faulty printer head, it means the printer is not recognizing the head. Kodak seems to be very aware of this problem and are sending me a new printer head UPS, free of charge. After reading some previous reviews I`m suprised how good the customer service was. Maybe I just called at the right time and got lucky.

Grinding Noise and no printing


grinding is NOT cool...i'd say that you have a mechanism issue with this printer. How long have you know this printer?

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Wants to print but won't put ink on paper


I'm experiencing the same problem. I tried to troubleshoot through software that came with printer, but no luck. Here's what happens:

The printer worked great for a month or so. Then, I didn't use it for a few months. When I tried to use it again, it acts like it's printing. My computer shows it's printing, the printer runs through all the steps, including moving the print cartridges back and forth over the paper as it should, but no ink comes out on paper.

Any suggestions?
