after a month of not using the printer, most probably the print head is clogged.. try using the printer utility to clean the print head.. it's under the printer properties.. normally that should resolve the print missing issue...unless your print head is really clogged up... some would suggest to partial soak the print head onto warm water..but it doesn't work everytime..
first of all it require servicing like cleaning of steel rod inside in the printer on which print heads move ,that you can do with lubricant oil and second thing you need to change the cartridges because they may be already dry because you not used for very long time. In short if you can do this entire thing well otherwise I advised you to show it service center.
Check to make sure you're not adjusting it to fit the page. This can shrink the entire doc.. Look in the print dialog window when you select print from the file menu. There should be options to select or deselect before clicking to print. You may also check your page setup to make sure you are printing at 100%. Let me know if you solve this one...
It's mean "Print head not installed/Defective print head".First open cover and remove the ink cartridges.Then open holder and remove the print head.Clean the contacts on printer and print head using piece of cotton and some alcohol.Then put back all again.If the problem persist you need to replace the print head.It's part number now is QY6-0064, because the old QY6-0042 is discontinued.
5 blinking yellow or 7 blinking yellow in canon printers means you need to replace the ink cartridge or head with a new one. If you want to be sure, then take the print head and see if there is any burned area or damaged near the head and sometimes it is very small like a needle puncture. if there is, you need to buy a new one. if not, try to clean the head with 96% alcohol, let them dry before you try to put it back.
Power on your printer, press and hold the "RESUME" button until the printer light flashes once.Note: You can also clean the printhead by clicking the Cleaning button in the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box in Windows; or clicking Cleaning pull-down menu in the Printer Utilities dialog box on a Macintosh computer. Choosing this option will allow you to select all nozzles, black or just the colour nozzles.
Pressing Resume on the printer will clean all nozzles. When the printhead cleaning begins, the POWER light starts flashing. This will continue for about 30 seconds. Wait for the light to stop flashing before you resume normal operation.3. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again
If the results are satisfactory, resume normal printing
