Not to be to forward but because of the low cost of printers i would go by a new one. Replacing the head could be just as expensive as buying a new one. The reason I am giving this advise is from what you are saying you possibly could have a short. With the ink spill it could of ran down on some of your circuits. the other possibility is it gummed up. cleaning the rails and head will not fix this problem. I have worked on several types of printers and when there is a ink spill it gets all over everything.When heavy ink dries it turns into a sticky almost like glue substance and it could be gumming your motor, your belts , even your jet nozzles. It is just better and cheaper to buy a new printer.

Paper is not printing

Since you are asking about a Canon Pixma ip3500, I would guess that the ink cartridge(s) is/are dried out, empty, or clogged. Try swapping out with new, fresh Canon cartridges and see if that fixes the problem.

Also, be aware that it is extremely ill-advised to use only refilled or "compatible" cartridges all the time in the case of inkjet printers (of which the Pixma line of printers is an example). The reason being that the refilled and "compatible" cartridges use plain ink while the OEM cartridges use a mix of ink and lubricants so as to keep the ink delivery system functioning to peak efficiency and help to keep the system clear of clogs. Therefore, if you have recently put in a new cartridge but it is yet another refill, swap it out for a real Canon cartridge and then try using the "clean the printer" function to try to clear out the ink nozzles. If you don't feel comfortable doing this or you are unsure how to accomplish this task, get in touch with a local computer or printer repair shop and they will gladly resolve this for you.

Waht kind of cartridge is used for canon printer K10282

Your machine is a Pixma MP160. It can use either the PG40 or PG50 Black cartridges, and the CL41 or CL51 Colour cartridges. These can be refilled, but the cartridges have a memory function that will need you to bypass the printers cartridge level calculator. Your cartridge refiller should be able to provide you with instructions for this.

CANON PIXMA MP 198 . I WAS PRINTING THEN SUDDENLY IT JUST FLASHED ON MY MONITOR "INK CARTRIDGE CANNOT BE RECOGNIZED" I TRIED TO REPLACE THE CARTRIDGE SINCE THE COMPUTER TELLS THAT IT MAY BE NOT...

It could be you have used a refilled cartridge and the date or information inside the refill is now telling printer its not recognised.
The replacement one could be faulty (if refilled).
I have had a lot of problems with refills and now tend not to use them anymore.

Printer is not printing after putting in new ink

hi from brisbane !!
your Canon printer is detecting low ink in the cartridge and stops the feed of ink .
i have had the same problem and have only refill the cartridge and its away again .
the cartridges have a few contacts on the back and sometimes by applying a magnent to those contacts , it erases the memory and start printing again .
try that and let me know how you go .

I have a pixma mp10 scaner and printer it will not scan the light flashes E and 6. What can I do to fix this? Barbara Nash

Halo Barbara,
Did you mean Pixma MP140/160/150/170/180?. I never hear Canon pixma MP10. Well,it doesn't matter. Did you refill your cartridge?. Error code E6 indicates that ink level is not detected properly by the printer. It usually occurs in refilled cartridge. To fix this problem you need to deactivate ink level detection function by performing following procedure:
For MP150/160/170/180: Press START button (Black or Colour)
For MP140: Hold down STOP/RESET button for about 9 seconds

Please rate me as Fixya if this solution useful for you. Thanks
