SOURCE: my canon inkjet ip90 error color ink not installed but it is

A few basic causes. Most of them generic but should be able to help you out

1. The cartridges you bought were not original equipment ones (OEM)and many "clone" cartridges are known to have problems with the ink level chips

Take them back and get them replaced with a different brand

2. They are original cartridges but may still be faulty (rare but possible)

Take them back and get them replaced

3. Your print head is clogged or faulty

Run your printer through the head cleaning process a few times and see if it clears up.

4 your cartridges are out of alignment

run the cartridge alignment process

%. The head maybe just plain old pooched (not always repairable but on occasion...)

If you are filling them yourself then...

Cartridge ink levels are usually monitored by a small chip on the cartridge. If that cartridge is allowed to fall below 25% ink level most chips then become locked and not able to re-set.

For many cartridges you can buy a reset device to reset chips that have not become locked. Or you could buy empty cartridges that don't need resetting and that will always accept a self refill.

As for scanning if by that you mean the photocopy function then that could be linked to any of the above. But should you mean it wont scan to the computer then you should look at any hardware or driver issues that you may have and maybe also the source selection (usually TWAIN) is a good source selection.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma yellow color problem

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

SOURCE: black and white prints are not black

Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:

  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Verbatim CD-R 52X Printable disc. What does the term ' Silver Inkjet Printable" mean and how do I use it. Thank you.


> silver inkjet printable

It means that in addition to the "bottom" of the disk being capable of being "burned" by a CD/DVD writer, that the "top" of the disk is capable of absorbing ink, if you put the disk (instead of a sheet of paper) through an inkjet printer, and print some images/text onto the surface, to create a professional-looking label on your disk.

Epson Stylus R220 CD Print Smears after printing.


It has to be a bad batch or the wrong system.
Are you sure that the disks are labeled inkjet printable and not lightscribe?
Most printables are white in color and lightscribes are tannish.

Poor print quality .... Canon Pixma MP140 ...


Paper quality does make a difference in the quality of print, but it's usually in the areas of blurriness and vibrance. If your prints are coming out faded, the quality for your prints might be set to 'economy', which doesn't use very much ink. If you have it set for 'quality' prints, I would try replacing the ink cartridges.

Image print on disc


Hello,

Lightsribe disc is only monotone colour mostly its gold color.

So if you want to print an image on it.

Probably you will not like it.

Instead buy an Epson R230 or newer series. Because it has CD printer.

It can print beautiful colors you want.

Buy also printable CD. It can be generic CD or branded like Verbatim, Sony, TDK, Melody.

Buy a printable CD with a paper texture on the top.

If not it might smudge the ink on the top.

Its messy.

Well then. I hope this help
