Why you should Clean the Printhead for a Canon Inkjet Printer?

We don’t know where you’re approaching this topic from but for the average Joe the thought of having to clean the printhead for your Canon inkjet printer conjures up dark thoughts, plagued of course with deep boredom and the abyss of motivation. Regardless of whether you’ve just invested in a Canon inkjet printer all your own or the great responsibility of keeping the office machine ‘going strong’ has fallen on your poor shoulders, don’t lose hope, there is a way to keep your machine ticking along for many more moons to come without having to sacrifice your after-dinner ice cream or tot of brandy.

Quite simply, cleaning the printhead of your printer will help it to live a long prosperous life. We have to remember that we are working with our dear printer and photocopier machines like pack horses. No, pay, sometimes a decided nudge when it starts to slow down and hopefully some very needed words of encouragement. Apart from praising it on ‘come on darling, just 200 more pages of Dr. Hawking’s dissertation of everything in the universe and then you can have a rest’, we really should be looking after our machines. This way the whole printing process can remain cheap, affordable and we can keep on buying the cheap canon ink cartridges without a care in the world.

Simply allotting a few minutes to cleaning the printhead on your printer this Saturday, sandwiched between sleeping in and going to find waffles and whipped cream, is a great way to plan your weekend. Yes, it may take away time from guzzling down the third waffle topped high with strawberries and cream but you’ll be able to sleep easy at night. You’ll be able to know that whatever form the darn bank wants next, whatever copy of your resume needs to be printed, whatever treatise on the alliance between Sparta and Athens in 445 BC will be printed with ease and be in your happy hands pronto.

Essentially what cleaning the printhead means is removing the part of your printer through which the printer ink flows. Included in the printhead is a mesh area, which is there to prevent blots of ink spilling on to the paper in the printing process. Its very functionality means that from time to time it is likely that blockages of either dried ink, dust or general wear and tear may cause the mesh area to become too blocked to function properly. It doesn’t mean your machine is malfunctioning, merely that the printhead needs to be cleaned.

What is the Chips for a Brother TN760 Toner

Ok take a deep breath, many, many, oh so many people have no idea that their printers or photocopiers have chips in them. Who would have thought? Well, just like that twist in the Avengers’ movie, you know the one, the fact of the matter is that yes, there are chips in many photocopiers and printers. Eat your heart out Hollywood, in the land of printing and toner cartridges there’s high tech and high stakes…

Brother TN760 Compatible Black Toner Cartridge High Yield - No Chip

Brother TN760 Compatible Black Toner Cartridge High Yield – No Chip

These chips, often called smart chips are used by the machine to determine how much toner or ink your device has left. If only our milk had a little chip that detected when there’s almost nothing left (you know, when your housemate just puts the carton back in the fridge without bothering to a) tell you or b) put it in the recycling. It’s a horrible shock to wake up one morning and come to realize that there is diddly-squat milk left for your cheerios. That’s why when it comes to printing, it’s so important to have a chip that’s actively working to tell you how your toner and/or ink levels are doing. You don’t want to arrive at the photocopier one day and realize that, nope, no copies will be made today because the toner situation is drier than the acting in a B grade horror movie.

These chips and the toners that come with them are not the cheapest items of tech so it’s incredibly useful to transfer one chip to another toner cartridge that doesn’t have a chip in it. This way, you are able to buy a new toner cartridge for a fraction of the price and be able to transfer your original chip to the new toner cartridge. It’s the way to do printing and copying on a budget without worrying that you won’t be told when you’ve run out. The Brother brand is one of the only brands to sell toner cartridges without the chip and so make a great buy, the Brother TN760 Toner is definitely one of them.

The Brother brand has a great selection of compatible toner cartridges that don’t come with chips inserted. This means that the deals and prices on these toner cartridges can be up to 60% lower than what many toner cartridges retail at in the current market. The Brother TN760 Toner is a great option to start out with.

Below is an instructional video (prime viewing we say, absolutely prime viewing) of the process of removing the smart chip from one toner cartridge to another.

You will just need:

  1. A small screwdriver
  2. A relatively steady hand

What Ink Does Canon TS9120 Printer Use?

When it comes to high-performance colour printing, there are few machines as elegant and sophisticated at the Canon PIXMA TS9120 all-in-one colour inkjet printer. Its very appearance is sleek and futuristic, indicative of its capacity to handle large amounts of smooth, glossy inkjet prints. Even if you’re operating under a time constraint, this machine can keep up with your heavy workload.

Integrating an Inkjet Printer into Your Office

With incredibly high-resolution prints, a printing speed of only 17 seconds, and the capacity to print double-sided pages, there is no reason why this fantastic inkjet printer shouldn’t be a permanent fixture in your office or classroom this fall. It truly lives up to its name as an “all-in-one” machine that gets the job done right every single time.

More and more Canadian businesses are seeing the value of an all-in-one printer that handles high-volume printing, copying, and scanning jobs. While many other models fail to live up to the standard expected by most busy office professionals, the Canon brand has developed a reputation worldwide for being both effective and dynamic. The PIXMA, in particular, is proving to be one of the best new models and a preference of many Canadian employees and students who rely on printers to deliver stunning glossy prints every single time without comprising colour quality.

Cartridge Compatibility

Once you’ve set it up in your office, the next step is to find ink for Canon TS9120. If you’re expecting to pay sky-high prices for quality cartridges, you might be pleasantly surprised to learn that the PIXMA—along with other similar models—is compatible with many affordable toner cartridges, such as the best-selling Original Canon PGI 280 XL Pigment Black Ink Cartridge High Yield. With an exceptionally high page yield of 400 pages, you won’t need to restock constantly.

Excluding a small environmental handling fee, this stylish and efficient printer ships from one of two of our Canadian warehouses for an extremely low price if you purchase online.

What Happens When a Printer is Low on Ink or Toner?

As a general rule, when a printer runs out of ink or toner, it stops printing legibly. Depending on the printer model, the unit may look to replace one colour with another. For example, if you run out of black ink, your printer could replace it with blue, in order to still print the document you need.

Some printers will display the ink or toner levels each time you’re looking to print something, so you’ll always know how much “fuel” you have left and act accordingly. When ink or toner reaches super-low levels, some printers may stop printing altogether, to avoid any malfunctions of the device.

But what is the difference between ink and toner? Most people think these are synonyms and, while both of them are indispensable for printing, each of them is a completely different thing. Inkjet printers need ink to function, while toner is the fuel of laser printers. The latter is a fine powder while the former is a liquid that contains dyes or pigments. Basically, an inkjet printer will spray tiny dots of ink onto the pages, while a laser printer uses heat to release its electrically charged powder onto the paper.

As usual, there are advantages and disadvantages to both these types of printers. If you purchase an inkjet printer, you will pay less money for the unit itself, but the cartridges will require frequent change, which means you spend more money on consumables. Laser printers, on the other hand, are more expensive and require a larger investment upfront. However, in the long run, you will save more money with consumables, as toner cartridges can print a higher number of pages and won’t empty as fast.

Let’s take the Canon PIXMA MX492 All-In-One Color printer, for instance. Since this is an inkjet printer, it requires an ink cartridge to function. It has separate cartridges for black and white printing (compatible with Canon PG 245 or High Yield Version Canon PG-245 XL Ink) and for colour printing (compatible with Canon CL 246 or High Yield Version Canon CL-246 XL Ink). It also has some pretty awesome features, like the possibility to control your printer via a wireless connection, the option to print and scan files using your mobile phone and also to scan your documents to the cloud, allowing for very easy file sharing. Thanks to its wireless connectivity, it’s super easy to use this printer from multiple computers, without having to connect the cable each time to every single laptop.

On the side of the table lies the Brother MFC-9130CW. We’ve chosen this laser printer to compare it to the Canon PIXMA MX492 in terms of features, but as you can tell right from the start, the laser printer is way more expensive compared to its inkjet counterpart. Compared to the Canon, which can print up to 9 black and white images per minute, the Brother MFC-9130CW can deliver 19 pages each minute, thus proving its power right from the get-go. You get all the features from the Canon, like wireless printing via your mobile phone, the possibility to scan files, print and copy them, but it also features a 3.6-inch coloured display that provides the information you need when using the printer.

Long story short: if you’re an average printer user, the Canon (or any inkjet printer) is a great deal for printing the documents you need every once in a while. However, for a larger office, digital printing center and people who need to print documents on a daily basis, the Brother MFC-9130CW (or any laser printer for that matter) is a better investment on the long run.

How do I Change the Ink Cartridge on my Epson Printer?

How do I change the ink cartridge on my Epson printer?

Along with, ‘how do I file a tax return’ and ‘how long can I leave it before I go to the doctor about my flu’, the age-old question of how do I change the ink cartridge on my Epson printer rings as true to do as ever. Your partner might make a smart quip about ‘it’s not rocket science’ but don’t let them shame you, it’s tricky. All those buttons and flashing lights, it’s almost like flying a plane. Let us take you through the steps, plain and simple mind you, of how to get that old ink out of the Epson printer and some new glossy ink in.

Side note:

It can be so tempting to leave the ink in the printer even when the light is flashing that it is low but fight the laziness, fight the urge to turn a blind eye. Printers don’t do very well when having to print with really low ink, it strains the machine and can cause deeper damage.

  1. Lift the scanner part up

Tip: Don’t have any print jobs going as you’re trying to do this. You could break yourself and the printer.

Lift the scanner part of your Epson printer up so that the print head (the bit that moves with all the ink cartridges) can be seen.

A good rule of thumb is not to touch anything at this point.

  1. Press the stop button. The stop button is located generally to the far right within the control panel of your Epson printer.
  2. Usually, your printer would have been telling you which colour is low. If you haven’t paid attention, no fear, you can tell at this point which colour doesn’t have any ink left.
  3. Pinch the top of the ink cartridge colour you want to remove, so that the tag that has it ‘hooked’ it is released. Lift it out of the printer.
  4. Give the replacement ink cartridge a few shakes while still in its packaging. You can shake it to any pop song or just your favourite song, you do you.
  5. Remove the packaging.
  6. ONLY remove the YELLOW TAB from the new ink cartridge. Don’t remove anything else.
  7. Put the new ink cartridge in its slot, making sure you lightly push down until you hear a click. Follow the placement of the other ink cartridges to make sure you put it in the right way up.

VOILA! You have just replaced your first ink cartridge. Now send a selfie to your mum. She will be so proud!
