I have a PIXMA MG8150 printer and the 525 cartridge won't print.

Resolved Question:

I have a PIXMA MG8150 printer and the 525 cartridge won't print. All other colours are printing fine. I've done a deep head cleaning also after 24 hours and tried a new cartridge but still nothing. Do you think the print head is damaged and if so how do I fix it?

Hi there,You could try cleaning the print head contacts, to ensure it is able to detect the cartridge correctly and send signals to it.If that doesn't work, then either there is a deep blockage that the deep clean cannot clear, or the print head is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the printer is out of its two year warranty then it is not economically viable to have it repaired.
