Checking for Nozzle Clogging (iPF750/iPF755/iPF760/iPF765)

Solution

If printing is faint or affected by banding in different colors, make sure the Printhead nozzles are clear by printing a test pattern to check the nozzles.
NOTE
  • Nozzles are periodically checked to ensure they are clear. Configure the settings on the Control Panel menu in Nozzle Check.

1. Load unused paper.
 
2. On the Tab Selection screen of the Control Panel, press or to select the Settings/Adj. tab ().

NOTE
  • If the Tab Selection screen is not displayed, press the Menu button.

3. Press the OK button.
The Set./Adj. Menu is displayed.
 
4. Press or to select Test Print, and then press the OK button.
 
5. Press or to select Nozzle Check, and then press the OK button.
The printer now prints a test pattern for checking the nozzles.
 
6. Check the printing results.
If the horizontal lines are not faint or incomplete, the nozzles are clear.

If some sections of the horizontal lines are faint or incomplete, the nozzles for those colors are clogged.

If horizontal lines are faint or incomplete, follow the steps below and check again for nozzle clogging.
 
1. Clean the Printhead.
 
2. Print a test pattern to check the nozzles.
NOTE
  • If you repeat these steps several times but the horizontal lines are still faint or incomplete, contact the Canon Help Desk.
