Problem with Canon W6400


Recommended Posts

Am having problems with this printer, did a small print today was O.K then went to do 11"x14" and it printed with lines on page, did a few test prints an different paper, still got lines so decided to do a nozzle check, it looked pretty good but the light cyan was slightly patchy, so did a head clean. After doing the head clean printer won't allow me to print anything. Gives error message  "check printhead" which according to manual means printhead needs cleaning or needs new printhead. Have now done printhead cleaning a number of times & all it has achieved is a waste of ink.

Anything else I should try before calling a tech? I would be very disappointed if it needs a new printhead already as it hasn't had that much use.

Replaced print head, also had to replace maintainence tank, all working perfectly again.

Just have to pay for it all now!

"Maintenence Tank" is a bit of a joke though, a plastic tray filled with foam which they charge AU$75.00 for.

Also makes you realize how much of that precious ink gets thrown away.

Cost of printhead very high too, about quarter of the total cost of new printer.
