Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

The upper 2/3 of the word is either red or yellow

All the cartridges are new. All the maintenance items were done with no improvement. Words that were to be printed red appeared as top 2/3 red and the bottom 1/3 yellow or the opposite - top 2/3 yellow and the bottom 1/3 red.

    I had cleaned the locations under the cartridges and on the magenta one their was some cyan, replaced the magenta cartridge with no results. Looking at the ink their appeared to be no blue sucked into the magenta cartridge. I switched the quality of print to the highest setting and the printing is correct with no color mismatch, my red is now red.
    It has the same problem as before - 2/3 yellow and 1/3 red on all the other settings - draft and standard.
    I do not need this high quality on the majority of my printed material. Like my copy of the 30 page document that I am presently printing.
    Do I need to remove the cartridge holder to clean the area where the ink comes out? If yes - how do I remove it?

Printer will only print properly when in high resolution, other settings such as standard and draft still get the same results as above. When I use up the stock of color cartridges I will buy a new printer. I cleaned the positions under the cartridges, did I need to remove the print mechanism and clean where the nozzles are.

Will not print in red

Aftermarket cartridges are easily the number one service issue in my shop. You have clogged the printhead. If you run `cleaning, color' (deep cleaning is NOT recommended), then the `nozzle check' to see results, you should see improvement with each color. If you don't, stop and take your unit in for service. It may need a new printhead.

No yellow colour

If the yellow cartridge is full then you may have blocked yellow printhead nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new printhead is required.
A new printhead maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

Can not get red put new cartridge and still no red or green

Try to do the Clean Cartridge function on your printer. While on the Copy mode on your printer operator panel, press the Menu button > go to Tools > go to Maintenance > select Clean Cartridges > press Check mark. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
Try to print a document again to verify that the print quality has improved.

The printer won't print out any of the reds in my images, even when the colour cartridge has just been replaced, and prints any red areas in yellow instead.

Hi is this a new printer? If you've just installed a new color ink, it would prompt you to align the cartridge or print some test page.. If the RED doesnt show on the test page, then try to perform maintenance on it.. Like Clean cartridge or clean print head.. it may be clogged.. if it still does this, try changing the color ink.. If you color ink is from a stock, it may have dried up.. if you bought it just days ago, ask for a replacement.. If all has been done, it maybe the printer itself..

Hope this helps.. :D

Can print the color I want. Only prints red.

A technique to improve print quality is to try and clean the cartridge nozzles. You may clean the cartridge by following the steps given below:
1. Go to the "Lexmark solution center." This can be done by clicking on "Start," go to "Programs" and Lexmark printer group. Click on the "Lexmark Solution center." Next click on the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Clean and Fix Horizontal streaks." Click on "Print". This will produce a printed page.
The colors that you should see here are black, yellow, magenta (a reddish purple) and cyan (a dark sky blue). You should notice the diagonal lines above and below the solid horizontal lines. These diagonal lines should be solid from left to right with no gaps.
If there are gaps in the lines or the print diminishes across the page, you should run the "Clean Print Nozzle" page a couple more times to try and clear it up. If you still have gaps at the top and bottom, you should "wick" the cartridges by following the steps given below:
1. Please open the "Solution center" again and go to the "Maintenance" Tab.
2. Select "Install color/black cartridge" and remove the cartridge or cartridges from the printer.
3. Get a damp paper towel.
4. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds.
5. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean.
6. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing.
7. Snap the cartridges back into the printer.
8. On your computer, select "Old Cartridge install."
9. Repeat the "Clean Nozzle Page" one more time. If this fails to address the problem the entire procedure may need repeating.
