Canon Pixma MX922 HEADACHE


Just received this product new Wednesday the 21st of March. Today is the 24th and it's still not printing. I first had issues with setup and printer head alignment. I got by that. But now I go to print my first document from Word and it's not printing the magenta. When I do the cleaning and deep head cleaning and all that stuff it doens't print the magenta. I took it out and touched paper to sponge and it turns it red. 

What do I need to do with this new printer causing me so much agony!!

Hi jonray76,


First, please make sure that the installed ink tanks are correct and full of ink. The correct order is:

CLI-251C cyan


Next, please print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink is ejecting properly from the print head. To do this, please follow these steps:


1. Make sure that your PIXMA MX922 is turned on.

The nozzle check pattern is printed and the pattern confirmation screens are displayed alternately. Please compare your printout to the example that has been attached to the bottom of this post.
