    MG3650S Printer Head Alignment problems.

    Almost there ! I found the print utility after reinstalling the printer software and was then able to do a manual alignment. It is better but not perfect. The test will be for the next postage label I do and if the Post Office can scan the QR code or not. Fingers crossed. Thanks everyone for the...

    MG3650S Printer Head Alignment problems.

    Thanks, I have downloaded the Mac user manual and page 148 tells me to go to the "Canon IJ Printer Utility". Only problem is that this is not anywhere in the Canon application folders on my Mac so I can't even begin the process. I will have to find out how to get it. Cheers Brian.

    MG3650S Printer Head Alignment problems.

    Thanks Peter. No change of cartridge, the fault just started and got worse. I will remove and reinsert the black cartridge ( it is a Canon one but I refill it with ink). I'll see if I can get hold of a Windows OS to try the cure on that. Cheers Brian.

    MG3650S Printer Head Alignment problems.

    Thanks PeterBJ, I have tried that but it has made no difference at all. I could see the strip at the back and cleaned it but there was very little dirt/ink/dust on it, it did look clean. Any further ideas ? Cheers Brian.

    MG3650S Printer Head Alignment problems.

    When the MG3650S prints the vertical lines are like the castle battlements so I tried to align the printheads. Printing out the alignment sheet and scanning it in made no difference so I read in the Canon manual that I can do a Manual Alignment. This only seems to work with Windows OS and I use...

    I found this but it does not put the printer into service mode, it just comes back to the error code. Is it the incorrect procedure ?

    MG6650 and 5B00 code. Can I clear it ?

    From what I have read, the service tool only works with Windows and we have AppleMac. I have tried other methods from Google search but not one worked, error code was always there. Cheers Brian.

    MG6650 and 5B00 code. Can I clear it ?

    Thanks Stratman, I can't get the counter to reset so machine is junk at the moment. A replacement is the quickest and easiest option. Bin and move on. Cheers Brian.

    MG6650 and 5B00 code. Can I clear it ?

    Ah, yes it was the purge pads that I removed and cleaned. If I do some dismantling then can I see the felt pads and clean them and will it make a difference ? Thanks Brian.

    MG6650 and 5B00 code. Can I clear it ?

    I have tried the Hard Resets found on Google/Youtube but the code 5B00 still persists. Is there anything I can try to clear it. I do not have access to Windows, I use Applemac. Thanks Brian.
