Canon PG 240XL doesn't print after 20 pages

  • Hello, i purchased after market PG240XL, but it's so bad, and doesn't work after 20 pages, does it clog or defective?

  • Reason: the print head got clogged, cartridge is not sitting properly, sealing tape is not removed, the plastic cover is not being penetrate.

    1. If you tried with another cartridge and worked then it should be defective.
      Please try removing the cartridge from the printer. Make sure all the sealing tape are removed and check the bottom of the cartridge to see if the plastic cover is being penetrated, if not please use a pointy object like hair pin, toothpick or needle and gently penetrate it. Then reinstall the cartridges make sure they are sitting properly inside the printer.

    It is possible that the printer contacts are worn or dirty. You can try deep cleaning the print head up to 5 times and let the cartridge seat to see if there is any improvement. Change it back to your old one to test if it gives you the same result.
