Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

My Canon printer is having printing problems.

I just replaced the ink cartridges in my MP160 Canon printer and, for some reason, the colors are coming out wrong. It will not print in black, only gray, and the colors come out faded.

Canon PIXMA MP160 - can you use a black ink cartridge in place of the color?


Hi,
you cannot insert or interchange the cartridges in black to color slot. It will not accept and if you do it by force, you are damaging the printing mechanism of the printer

How do you print a document using color ink? I am out of black ink.


Ink is a lubricant for the print heads. Some color ink is used even if you only print in black or vice-versa. If you printed with black ink missing, you could destroy that print head from the friction of running without ink to lubricate it. That's why most printers won't allow you to print with black ink missing even if you aren't using it. That's the case with your Canon printer.

If you allow a color to go empty, the residual ink in the head could clog and become permanently blocked. You would never be able to print that color again. So always replace ink cartridges as soon as they are empty.

Color ink cartridge does not print in full colors


Canon printers do not like the refilled ink cartridges. After having ruined a few printers trying to "save" money. I went back to genuine Canon ink and have never had a problem since.

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.
