Discussion threads can cannon i550 printer closed at any time at our discretion. Then when you try and print with no ink in the printhead, it will overheat and that can cause permanent damage. When you take out a printhead and clean it, and dry it, now there is nothing inside to absorb the heat when it trys to print.

Canon detects that you changed the printhead and does a normal cleaning cycle which is supposed to cannon i550 printer and prime the printhead with ink. The purge unit could be "Non-functioning" and this will cause the same problems. I'm supposed to be somewhat of an expert on this but I have burned up two very good printheads in a similar manner.

My suggestion is to try and add some windex to the purge pads and cannon i550 printer the printer on and off. The do a deep cleaning cycle then do another cleaning cycle and a nozzle test. If you get no ink of any kind from the printhead, take it out and set it on a couple of folded paper towels. Then using a syringe all cannon i550 printer Windex or distilled water to the inside of the printhead on the filter screens.


Do not over flow the small cavity around the filters. As the Windex drains through the cannon i550 printer you should clearly see each one of the colors, including black come down to the paper towels.

What you are doing is trying to prove that ink is getting sucked all the way inside of the printhead to the nozzles. Another way to test cannon i550 printer purge unit is to cannon i550 printer the ink level in each of the ink carts and then run a couple of deep cleaning cycles. Each of these cycles is supposed to suck almost 1ml of ink from each color.


Run the cycles and check the ink level. The final and best way to test it is to totally disassemble the printer, remove the carriage ASM, set it on some blocks, put some paper towels under the purge unit output tubes, hook back up the power cannon i550 printer run some cleaning cycles. Then you can see the ink come out. IF you get ink out, run the nozzle check. Recently it has a problem. Normally the nozzle test patterns look like raster of vertical and horizontal lines. My iP printed out the black pattern as: all vertical lines are visible; the last 5 horizontal lines are OK also but the first 5 horizontal lines became dash lines. Based on the service manual of i I also know that for all Cannon i550 printer the data signals are separated into even and odd column data signals.

Cannon i550 printer appreciated you valuable reply. What do you suggest? Washed the printhead and then followed efinigan's tip - worked a treat!

Blue is the only color where I have had clogging issues.
