Super G3 is not the model. It is Canon's fax technology. It is classified as a laser fax/printer. This is a monochrome printer which means you can print only one colour at a time. You can print all black or all yellow, all red or whatever colour cartridge is available.It has no capability to mix colours. Not any colour (including black) toner will work as the composition is different to suit the printer model. Hope this helps.

NX 410 epson printers problems


I switched to another brand of printer. Clogged heads, clogged feed tubes, etc Common enough if you don't use a printer daily. I bought a laser printer for black and white text output, toner is much cheaper than ink and a Canon inkjet printer for color when needed, my choice of a Canon was based on a user swapable print head and a super price on a discontinued model.

My Canon lbp 2410 will print in black and white but not colour i have changed the drum cartridge and replace all colour toners Thanks Vicki


Check your printer settings in properties. It may be that the mono black only box is ticked. Untick the box for printing in colour.

Brother hl3040cn. I have replaced black cartridge it now says other 3 need replacing. Was printing ok before black ran out; not printed colour for long time. thanks


This printer tells you to replace the toner when there is still plenty left. You can override this as follows:-
1. Open the top cover
2. Press "Secure print" and "Cancel" together
3. This brings up the cartridge menu. Press "OK" twice for each entry, then scroll down to the next one. There are two entries for each colour, dunno why.
4. When you've done all 8 entries shut the lid and print.
This may need to be redone every few months.

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

Sir, can we use color cartridge in canon lbp2900b


NO! whatever you do, do not put colour in with the black cartridge. This will seriously damage your printer. Your printer cannot use colour ink cartridges. I would suggest purchasing a new printer with that capability. Do not risk the damage of trying a colour cartridge in your current printer. Laser printers are very tempermental. Cheers.

try cleaning the print head as follows, otherwise a new print head.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.
