    I just received a MulitPASS C2500 that my job was giving away. It sounds as if it is printing, but when the paper comes out it is blank. I purchased a remanufactured ink cartridge, removed the tape and all from the cartridge, did the head cleaning as suggested, but nothing is working. I have installed the work around (Cannon Bubble Jet BJC-4000) as well. I am running Windows XP. What do you think is the problem?

    I have exactly the same problem and I have seen it with several other Canon printers. One day stop printing even with brand new cartridges. They go thru the motions but absolutely NOTHING prints. It almost seems as if it might be a distance adjustment (cartridge to paper or something like that).

This might sound a little obvious, but I've seen it before. But did you peel off the plastic covering from the cartridge before you installed it?

    Try to perform printhead cleaning

    1. Press .
    2. Press (One-touch button '13').
    3. Repeat steps one and two at least 5 times.

    Then Check the status of the print head by printing a test page.

    The test page confirms whether sufficient ink is still in the cartridge (or tank) and if ink is ejecting from the print head nozzles.

    1. Press . The key is located at the top row of the One-touch buttons on the right-side of the control panel on the MultiPASS.
    2. Press the '*' (asterisk) key on the dial keypad.

    If none of this works, you'll need to return that ink cartridge and get a new one.

I have a Canon MultiPass C555 InkJet Printer for my fax machine in the church office. I don't know how old the machine is. Whenever I receive a fax I cannot read it. I even change the ink and I still...

These machines have an integrated printhead built into the printer. The only way to try to fix this issue is to run the cleaning function anywhere from 3-7 times. First, remove the ink cartridges and depress the sponge side onto a paper towel. If you see ink on the towel, proceed to the next step. If no ink is present, replace the ink cartridges. They can be found for very cheap on this model. Next step, depends on whether or not the machine is hooked up to a computer or is just a stand alone fax machne. If it is not hooked up to a computer, go to the menu, scroll to maintainence and select clean cartridges. You will need to do this multiple times. Continue to do it if you see improvement, until you are satisfied with the print quality. You an also perform the cleaning from a computer. Locate the printer in the printer folder and right click on it. Select properties. At the bottom of that window, select preferences. Then select the maintainence tab, and select clean cartridges. Again, you will need to do this multiple times. Please advise if you need further help, or if this does not work and you would like info on current fax machines.

Canon Multipass MP730...placed new ink cartridge in twice now...nothing be printed...what could the problem be?

For me, there can be 3 problems, and I will do what I do in order.

1. The print head may be clogged. To unclog it, you have to remove the 4 cartridges, remove the print head (lever up, and remove the printhead), run those silvery things under a luke warm tap and low flow and pressure for about 5 minutes or until no ink drips out, and dont aim for those silvery things, do not touch the contacts on the back. Install the printhead, cartidges, lever down and go for it.

2. Well still no results... Get the printhead out of there again as your machine is getting old and tarnished. Get a sharp knife. Stroke down on those contact things downward only with your knife, a couple of columns at a time, couple of strokes per column. Put everything back, lever down, and go for it.

3. A new print head $50. Sounds a lot, but the last cartridges were $1.69 a pop. These cartidges last quite some time, as long as you fire something through the printer each week. This has to be the most economical bubble jet printer in the world. I have 3 of them.
