Question about Canon PIXMA MP810 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Printer is showing one ink tank as empty, but it is actually full: how to over-ride this?

Had problems with a blocked jet and after much cleaning and many test runs it is unblocked, however the printer insists the cartridge is empty. Can I over-ride or reset this somehow?

Ink is not flowing on printer


Either the ink cartridge is empty or due to non use for a long period of time, the ink jets have dried and clogged up.In 1st case change the cartridge.In second case remove the cartridge and run under tap for a few seconds so that the clogged up ink gets washed up. Dab with a soft cloth to dry up and take out a test page. If it is not clear, go in to clean cartridge options and clean it. remember not to rub the jets with cloth so as not to damage or dealign them.

Hi


The ink reservoir doesnt have to be completely empty to fail. Replace the cartridges. Some of the jets or all of them may be clogged especially if you have not used your printer in a while. If there are cleaning instructions in the manual clean the jets and then try to print from the printer's self test


Goodluck

Hello.

Inkjet printers have the major disadvantage of having often having clogged print head cartridges that can be very annoying in the long run. Though advanced inkjets might possess their automatic print head cleaning process, this might not work every time. The problem might be because a layer of

Using a syringe and some alcohol to unblock the holes can be very effective.
Step 1: Remove the cartridge from the printer
Step 2: With the syringe, take in some alcohol and put in some drops in the tiny hole where the ink runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer.
Step 3: When done, put the cartridge (only where the tiny holes are found) in some warm water. If some ink runs in the water, it means that the holes have been unblocked.
Step 4: Hence, let the alcohol act for 20 minutes on the ink before putting the cartridge back in the printer.
Step 5: Run some test prints before using the printer normally.

Note: I would suggest you to do an automatic head cleaning each time before any printing task. Hence it will reduce the risk of having the print heads blocked by dried ink.

Hope this resolves your problem.

HP5550 printer is printing everything in green. We have true HP cartridges


So, your "blue" and "yellow" ink-cartridges are OK, and are mixing to produce "green".

But, either your "red" ink-cartridge is empty, or the ink-jets that shoot that colour onto the paper are BLOCKED.

Run a print-head-cleaning-cycle, using the HP Support Tools that were installed from the HP CD-ROM, and then, if necessary, replace/refill the "red" cartridge.

How to clean cartridge


Once you remove the ink cartridge from the printer, you can make use of the Isopropyl Alcohol, and put at maximum of 10 drops in the ink cartridge. You will find a hole there, in which the ink usually runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer. When done, you can put the cartridge back in the printer and run the auto cleaning process from the printer's option in order to clean the blocked holes of the cartridge. I would suggest you to run print tests first and once you are satisfied with the results, you can start using the printer normally.

If you want to go further:
  • Remove the tank.
  • Connect a hose directly on the inlet ink.
  • Locate the sensor of reservoir and press it to make as if a cartridge is available.
  • Close the cover of the print head and clean the head by injecting air (under pressure) through the pipe.
  • Replace the tank up and do a test print.
  • Repeat the procedure several times if the nozzles are clogged.

Using a syringe and some alcohol to unblock the holes can also be very effective.
  • Step 1: Remove the cartridge from the computer
  • Step 2: With the syringe, take in some alcohol and put in some drops in the tiny hole where the ink runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer.
  • Step 3: When done, put the cartridge (only where the tiny holes are found) in some warm water. If some ink runs in the water, it means that the holes have been unblocked.
  • Step 4: Hence, let the alcohol act for 20 minutes on the ink before putting the cartridge back in the printer.
  • Step 5: Run some test prints before using the printer normally.

Note: I would suggest you to do an automatic head cleaning each time before any printing task. Hence it will reduce the risk of having the print heads blocked by dried ink.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color


Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

Does not print


The CX series printers use a pigment based ink, and if it dries it frms a semi hard gooy substance on the printer ink input pins.

Sometimes after the insertion of new cartridges (Ensuring the yello tab is removed) and letting them sit overnight (to soften the ink blob) and running several cleaning cycles can unblock the ink "jam". Note: Epsons printer head need ink to cool them when printing (Sort of like oil in a car) so don;t try to print withot having ink flowing to the heads. It can also ruin the print head by overheating.

If all else fails there are several companies that sell inkjet cleaning solution. You may need a couple of cartridges to flush blocked jets but if will most likey work if the print head is still functional.

Otherwise, the technican is correct, you may need to purchase a new printer.

Note; For the future... Never let the ink run out of any cartridge without immediately replacing the cartridge. Never remove an empty cartridge without replacing it immediately.
