You need a new printhead, QY6-0052-000, around $40.00. Ink dries in the printhead and can't be cleaned.

Yellow cast when printing from canon mx850 - I see this problem has been described before, where do I find the answer?


The way inkjet printers work is they mix the limited amounts of colours available from the cartridges, by printing in layers, to get the desired colour. A lot of the time when it appears off colour its because one of the other colours isn't printing properly to show create the correct 'mix'.
This can either be because the colour is low, or because there is a blockage somewhere. I would suggest removing the cartridges & reinserting them, then performing maintenance which i believe can be done on the printer itself by pressing the menu button, finding 'maintenance/settings' pressing OK, then going to 'maintenance', followed by doing a 'cleaning procedure'.
More info here: http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/products/Fax__Multifunctionals/InkJet/PIXMA_MX_series/MX850.aspx?faqtcmuri=tcm:14-605698&page=1&type=faq
If this doesnt help, try the same thing but choosing deep cleaning.
Hope this helps.

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through...


Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

The upper 2/3 of the word is either red or yellow


let the cartridge be new but the colours are got mixed with each other so this problem as the canon cartridge has the sponge in the cartridges that sponge material has soaked the colours from each other and this has happened.to solve this problem two things needs to be done 1)the head needs cleaning as the colour will be filled in it now.
2)the cartridges needs to be replaced.

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown


the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.

Excessive Yellow ink use


The printer software should have an option for head cleaning & alignment. Make sure to run these maintenance options and see the results. You may need to re-run the tests.

Sometimes generic inks can cause a problem, so after cleaning, try to use an oem cartridge (same company as your printer) and observe the results.

Colour printing


Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around. http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103191,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck
