First thought would be that you are possibly running out of ink with one or both of your other colors, causing everything to have a pink / reddish tone. If you have replaced the cartridges with no luck, you should try cleaning the print heads according to the manufacturer suggested instructions. Sometimes, even if there is ink in the well, the print head can become clogged and keep it from printing to the page.

All ink tanks have been replaced with OEM and photos are still printing with a very pink hue. What's the next step to solve this problem?

Sounds like one of your print heads might either be plugged or not working any more. Try removing the cartridges and cleaning the print heads with a Qtip (with isopropyl alcohol), or try a print head cleaning from the printer settings menu in Windows.

My Cannon i860 is blinking an amber light five times and then returns to green then blinks amber five times and so on. What is this error telling me?

I too went through all the cleaning processes on my i860 with its amber light blinking five times to one of green. After all that time and effort, I ordered a new head, replaced it, put the old ink carts back in, and presto, worked like a charm. Don't waste time and money doing anything else.

Color not correct and lines in print

Have you tried the cleaning function? It is usually accessed via the Canon software that you would have loaded when you first installed it on your computer.

See Canon instructions:

Have a look here:

and here:

If you don't use the printer regularly the ink can dry up block the 'very' small inkjet nozzles. Occasionally people have problems when using generic non-genuine ink cartridges, but I have much experince with re-filling Canon ink cartridges and they are much more user friendly then the durabrite ink cartridges used in Epson printers.

My canon ip4000 was working perfectly until yesterday. Suddenly it won't print the correct colors. Sometimes the nozzle check looks perfect, sometimes some colors are low, sometimes colors are mixed...

It could be a few different things but letys try the easiest first. Go into control pane/jprinters/ and do a deep nozzel cleaning. leave the printer idle for about a hour or two before trying to print again. You may have to repleat this procedure. If this does not fix your problem it could mean that you need to update a driver for your printer or that you have changed your colour settings in a graphic program such as adobe. Failing all else you may just need brand new cartridges. I have a canon i860 and found a very inexpensive site online to order the cartridges for a few dollars each. even if you don't need the cartridges right now check out the site and stock up.

Photo print quality Canon i860

You might be running low on toner or ink. In this case check out the ink/toner capacity left. it might even be a faulty cartridge if bought new, or a faulty printer, but it doesn't sound like it.

Canon i860 error codes

Try this: With your i860 printer turned ON, press and hold the I/O switch then pull off the power cord. This will turn off your printer. But without lifting your finger on the I/O switch put back your power cord. the I/O switch will blink for a second and will go off, then turn-on your printer again and see if it works.

Cannon i860 printer

you may need to use the i860's calibration tool which came with the device's installation disk. if this did not help, consult the device's manual and look for the way to perform a soft or a hard reset, usually this is leaving the device unpluged for an hour or reboot it while pressing the ready button.
