Question about Canon I960 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Distorted color printing

We purchased the Canon i960 printer at least 2 years specifically for printing pictures. We tried to resume our picture printing after about a year of non- use. We purchased inks that we were low on. The color quality is totally unacceptable. Pictures now seem to have a green cast to them. My thoughts are that perhaps the heads need cleaning. Any suggestions as to how to correct this problem?

    I have the same problem.

    I am having the problem that the photo paper (Kodak and Canon) print with intense magenta. Printing on plain paper is with a cyan tint and the reds are orange. I have made sure to change the print settings for the paper quality as well.

    My pictures all come out green. I have tried cleaning the heads but it hasn't changed anything. What else can I do?

When I print a picture it is greenish. All the


You need to make sure you are not using the photo magenta, your printer doesn't use photo magenta and it leaves the prints green. You need also to run the nozzle check print by holding the resume button until the green light flashes twice, and see if all colors are printed. If not you need a new printhead, the part number is on the side.

I was printing the other day and each page got lighter and lighter and now it doesn't print anything in black. There's ink in it and I turned off the printer. What else do I need to do to get it to print...


How long has it been since you printer prior to the other day ? If you do not use your printer for some time, the ink will dry out even if it's a new cartridge.
