Question about Printers & Copiers

4 Answers

My printer is a Canon MX850 inkjet. The magenta colour no longer prints. I have tried everything and followed to the letter the instructions in the Canon manual for cleaning the nozzles,for deep cleaning etc. I have tried several new cartridges and the problem is still the same. The other colours are fully functional but magenta simply does not print. Can you help as I cannot find any other tips in the printer manual.

    You said - try to clean the chip on the cartridge clean and check whether the ink flow is normal or anything is blocking it

    How do I check whether the ink flow is normal or whether anything is blocking it?

You need a new printhead. It will probably cost you more to repair than its worth.

How to replace ink?


Hi there!

It is really easy to replace the ink for the Canon Pixma MX850. You can follow the instructions found on this website: Canon Pixma MX850 Easy Setup instructions.

The setup instruction shows images on how to replace the ink cartridge from removing the print head from the package to inserting it on the printer.

Hope this helps.

Yellow cast when printing from canon mx850 - I see this problem has been described before, where do I find the answer?


The way inkjet printers work is they mix the limited amounts of colours available from the cartridges, by printing in layers, to get the desired colour. A lot of the time when it appears off colour its because one of the other colours isn't printing properly to show create the correct 'mix'.
This can either be because the colour is low, or because there is a blockage somewhere. I would suggest removing the cartridges & reinserting them, then performing maintenance which i believe can be done on the printer itself by pressing the menu button, finding 'maintenance/settings' pressing OK, then going to 'maintenance', followed by doing a 'cleaning procedure'.
More info here: http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MX_series/MX850.aspx?faqtcmuri=tcm:14-605698&page=1&type=faq
If this doesnt help, try the same thing but choosing deep cleaning.
Hope this helps.

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

Prints light purple instead of grey


I think your Black Cartridge is Empty. Check it and replace it with the new one.

Your Printer is trying to produce Black Colour from your Colour Cartridge with a mix of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow.

Printer wont continue printing if ONE cartridge is empty


Sorry to say this, I had a Canon Pixma and it wouldn't print unless you replaced empty cartridge, although I did have some success for a while longer by pressing OK button?

Instructions for printing addresses on envelopes from letter.


I assume you're using Microsoft Word? If so, click on File, then Print. Select the MX850 printer and enter page "0" in the box where you specify which pages to print. This will print just the envelope and not the entire letter.
