Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Prints suddenly red & cleaning doesn't help

I was printing pictures on my i860 this morning. It printed several fine, but the blue and yellow were running low, so I changed both to new ink cartridges. After doing that, the prints started coming out red. I made sure nothing had changed on my settings, etc. I tried cleaning the printer, I even tried a deep clean. What do I need to do to get this thing printing the right colors again? It is making my daughters brown hair look orange in the highlights, and the whole picture looks really red. The other ink tanks all seem to have plenty of ink as well. I just wanted to get my christmas cards done, and now I am frustrated. Thanks in advance for your help. Kerin

    As I said in the original post...I just changed the blue and the yellow cartridges, and the red has plenty in it, as do both black cartridges. I cleaned all the cartridges as well. Hopefully there is some way to fix this!

My Officejet 6000 E609n printer doesn't print the correct colors. The red is printing yellow and the blue and green are a lighter version of what is on the screen. I have cleaned the printer head


Hi,

This is not a cartridge issue. IT is Printhead issue. Since you have done the manual cleaning, it is now time to replace the Printhead.

Regards,
Suhail

Blue doesn't print. I've cleaned the print heads SEVERAL times and I've replaced the blue cartridge. When I do a nozzle check it sometimes prints partial lines but that's it. Pictures...


It appears that the printer is malfunctioning and will require service. I suggest contact its manufacturer to verify the warranty status of your printer, and have it replace by them. If the warranty is already expired, you can send the printer to the nearest service center for repair.

The cartridsge printe red and blue fine. No yellow


The print head for the yellow color may be clogged. Check the manual to see how to turn on your print head's cleaning system. Run it until the yellow starts to print properly. If after running the cycle 4 or 5 times you still can't get any yellow to print you will probably have to take the printer to your local repair depot to have them diagnose the problem.

HP PSC 2410xi color printing issues


Try using warn distilled water and Q-tips to gently clean the area where the ink cartridge and the carriage mate up. You may have dried old ink in there which is clogging the print nozzles. Allow to air dry, reinstall cartidges, start machine and let it go through its cleaning cycle. Also check www.hp.com. Hope this helps.

Go to maintenance tab.Try to do 3 head cleanings. After head cleaning, try to print.If the picture is still bluish; go to printers and faxes; go to printing preferences; click on advanced button.
On the upper right part of the window you should see there color management, click on ICM and turn off, click on apply and ok.
try to print, if it is still the same, try to use another program to print your pictures.

All colors print blue


You did the right thing. Sometimes a bad printhead or a bad cartridge will cause a leak and will damage both. Good job!
