Finding compatible upgrade to cpu 870


Instructions

1

Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.
2

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.
3

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.
4

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.
5

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.
6

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.
7

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.
8

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

I can only print black but i need color also


1] The first step is to get into your computers' control panel, go to the start button on the desk top and click it, then go to settings and click on it and control panel and click on that.

2] Once your in control panel you'll see the printers and faxes icon you'll click on that.

3] You'll then right-click on the icon for your printer (i.e the printers' name and model) and go to properties selection which will bring you to the property sheet.

4] After that you see (depending on the OS) a number of tabs for that particular printer, usually it will be labeled setup, color management, etc, you'll select this.

5] The final steps are to select the color radio button instead of the black button and to finally close out all the windows of control panel to get back to the desktop.

6] Now your printer will be printing in color.

Regards
George

Our hp color laserjet printer is not printing... all the ink cartridges are new and inserted correctly... we have no idea what's wrong


There can be a number of things that are wrong so bear with me as I list some suggestions or possible solutions.

Always, ensure that your cables are securely connected between the PC/Printer and your AC Power cord is securely plugged into the outlet as well as the back of the printer. Additionally, make sure that the printer isn't indicating an internal problem such as low toner, paper jam or some error code on it's display. If everything on the printer appears to be normal, proceed to the next paragraph, If there are any error codes or messages on your printers display, you'll need to look those up to clear those issues before proceeding.

Open your print queue in your computer, (Control Panel > Printers> HP Color Laser or name of your printer) verify that your printer is seen as the "Default" printer and that it isn't currently selected to work "Offline".

If it shows that it is the "Default" printer, and it is NOT selected to "work offline", then let's try the next step. If for some reason it isn't the "Default" printer, you can select it to be so. If for some reason it shows that it is "Offline" uncheck that selection.

Under your printer "Properties" (right click on your printer, bottom selection on the drop down menu) you will have a "Self Test" button. Click this button (only once), observe your printer and see if it prints a test page.

If your printer shows no error messages, all cables are secured (always double check), your printer doesn't show it is offline in the printers queue, it properly prints the test page then at this point it should be working correctly.

If the steps I have mentioned above don't work, please provide more detail as to the printer model, any changes that you have recently made (software installed, cartridges changed, etc.) and we will find you a solution.

Im not realy familiar with Kodak printers but my best advice would be change the scaling in the printer settings. There should be a setting that allows you to alter the coloration, if not try cleaning the cartridges. There should be a selection for that within your printer settings.

Changing ink default to BLACK


Not possible.
Epson uses the black cartridge mostly, but also adds color to the black printing in order to keep the color inks from drying in the print jets on the printhead.
They also make lots of money that way...

Unfortuantely , to solve the issue , sadly, yes you will have to replace the empty cartridge to continue to use the printer in a normal fashion. Its a sneaky and dirty trick many printer manufactuers do to make more money off of the customer through the purchase of printer ink.

I've recently installed my black ink cartridge and nothing happens when I try to print out. I've removed the sticker and checked all troubleshooting problems, and when I try to print, it comes out blank....


As this is a printer problem as opposed to a PC problem, we are in need of additional information. Please provide info regarding the printer model as well as the PC. Was this a routine cartridge change, and have you done it before with no negative consequence? Is the printer new or how old is it, and how old is the cartridge?

As you indicate black cartridge, it sounds as though this is a color printer. Have you tried to print a color document? Go to your printer settings and make sure it is set to print in color; then choose some color page (even this web page) and attempt to print it. If the color prints and the black doesn't, it is a bad cartridge.

It is also interesting that you mention the USB cable being attached. Do you have reason to believe the PC and printer are not communicating? If so, go to the Control Panel (Windows) and check your Printers to see if the printer is listed there. Check all the windows for status and any indication of an issue. If it is not listed, there could be a problem with either the cable, the USB port, or an intermediate piece of software.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently, as well as responding to the questions posed above, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

I am out in black


As far as I can tell, your printer model does not support color to black printing. Sorry.

The best I can suggest would be for programs like word or excel, etc.. to change everything that is black, to a dark blue.

Computer not in color printing mode


When you go to print, go to properties for the printer you would like to print. Once there find the tab that says color and make sure gray scale is checked off. It could depend though where that setting is at by printer. Please provide what printer you have. Just the brand no product number or anything only if what i gave at first does not help.
