Question about Canon PIXMA iP8500 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

6C cartridge space will not print regardless of cartridge

My 6C cartrigde will not print. Even if I replace with another cartridge or swap the 6C with the 6PC, that cartridge space will not print. If I do a print test, that space is blank... no color at all.

Replace print head by following manufacturer's instructions. These instructions can be found on-line at www.canon.usa.com under support for your particular printer. Enter "removing print head" into the search box.

Try removing your present print head and cleaning the electrical connections with soft brush or clean microfiber cloth (lens cleaner cloth for glasses). Replace your old head and see if this solves the problem. If not, you probably need to order a new print head from Canon, or you may decide it is better to just buy a new printer because of the price.

Cyan ink worked until needed to replace that empty cartridge. Now, all colors print but Cyan. I have cleaned inks, blocked eye with tape, cleaned where cartridge goes with warm water (in those holes),...


First do not use cartrigde compatible or refill because you clogged the print head,is verry sensitive.If you try to clean the print head and nothing you need to replace the print head is the only solution,after replace the print head you print all the colors.

NOTE!!! After you replace the print head use only original cartridge brother !!!!

Printing is blank but I have new ink cartrigde in


The print-head stucks (FIXYA would '****' the preceding word, if I left out the 't') ink from the ink-cartridge, and sprays the ink onto the paper, when the print-head is *NOT* "clogged".

Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle to "unclog" the print-head.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Only half of the 6c nozzle check pattern working


That issue usually indicates a bad printhead. I had to fix a lot of i9900 printers, and after cleaning the printhead there still was no change. Other models do that too when the printhead starts going out. This is an expensive printhead, but easy to replace, as you know. Link below to some options:

Did you remove the protective blue tape from the cartridge bottom, if please clean the cartridge Take a warm, damp paper towel or napkin and gently clean the bottom of the car where ink comes repeat the same process with dry paper towel and try to print , if you still have the problem you can contact lexmark and get the cart replaced with a new one as the cart comes with 6 months warranty.......

6C, 6M, and 6Y tanks don't print


Maybe if you have access to another canon printer you could try the cartridges in that to prove if they are ok. Most of that series have those cartridges.

RECOGNITION OF GENUINE CANON INK CARTRIDGE


I posted the original problem. Although the cartridge was genuine I had taken it out and reinserted it as I wasn't sure I had loaded it correctly the first time. Advice from my local retailer was that this was a mistake. Canon PIXMA printers no longer recognise a cartridge once it has been removed. Solution was another new cartridge which I shan't remove until it's empty. When this second cartidge is empty I shall try the first cartridge again as it is still full and unused. It has yet to print anything! Why Canon's helpdesk couldn't help is a mystery. I conclude that Canon's printer management systems are unfriendly to users. They are friendly only to Canon. I hope my experience will help others especially those considering buying a Canon printer. dudbob
