Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I changed the Magenta ink and now the photos print all smeared and heavy on the ink. I used Fixya Premium last evening (worked with mastersaintx) He diecided it is because there was special ink for photos and I had bought the wrong one. Today I went to Staples for the right ink and they said my ink was right. I have changed the paper, the settings, run diagnostics etc. Still pictures smear. Any words of wisdom? Sorry, I don't want to spend another $15. for a dead end solution. Help!

SOURCE: smeared lines
Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

It is due to spilled magenta toner leaking from side to the toner cartridge. Take the cartridge out of the printer and clean it. Clean visible inside of the printer. Shake the cartridge lightly in horizontal position to evenly distribute the toner inside the cartridge and put it back. The issue sould be fixed after some prints.
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!
