Prints color badly won"t stay


Hi w0rtm,

To correct this issue you need to clean the print head. Please follow the steps below.

1. Press the "Power" button to turn the printer on. Wait for the printer to fall silent, indicating it has finished all of its warm up.

2. Load letter size plain paper in the printer's input tray if none is present. Hold down the "Resume" button until the printer's power light flashes once, and then let go of the "Resume" button.

3. Wait for the printer's power light to stop flashing, indicating the printer has finished cleaning the print head. Print a nozzle check sheet by holding down the printer's "Resume" button until the power light flashes twice.

4. Examine the nozzle check printout, looking for missing or broken lines in any of the sections. If you see problems with the printout, run the printer's cleaning program again and then print another nozzle check pattern.

If this does not work, please try these.

1. Turn on the printer.

2. Click the "Start" button in the lower-left corner of your computer's desktop. Click "Control Panel." Choose "Printers and other Hardware." Select "Printers and Faxes."

3. Double-click the "Canon i550" icon. Click "File" in the main menu, scroll down and click "Printing Preferences." Hit the "Maintenance" tab.

4. Click the "Cleaning" button. Select "All colors" to be cleaned and click "Execute."

5. Click the "OK" button.

6. Print a sample page and examine whether the quality has improved.

7. If the quality has not improved, repeat Steps 2 and 3. Click the "Deep Cleaning" button this time. Select "All colors" to be cleaned and click "Execute." Click the "OK" button.

If still encountering the same issue, please uninstall and reinstall the unit's driver.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My printer prints, but colors are all off. There


Turn off the printer.

Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button.

Release the RESUME button, then press and release the RESUME button two more times in succession. (youre still holding the POWER button during this). The printer mechanics will move momentarily.

You are now in Service mode.

Pressing the RESUME key will select a function; for example, pressing RESUME 4 times will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate color with each key press.

1. service/factory test printout, including ink sensor check
2. EEPROM info printout
3. EEPROM initialization
4. Clear the waste-ink counter
5. Printer model setting. (more selections beyond this- leave this alone)

After selecting mode, press the POWER button to commit the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu. Pressing the POWER button again turns off the printer for a restart.

If you have a defective printer head, your power lamp may flash during the service mode key-in, and info printouts may not work. In this case, clearing the waste-ink counter may not fix your problem.

I was printing the other day and each page got lighter and lighter and now it doesn't print anything in black. There's ink in it and I turned off the printer. What else do I need to do to get it to print...


How long has it been since you printer prior to the other day ? If you do not use your printer for some time, the ink will dry out even if it's a new cartridge.
