Question about Cannon Canon i960 Photo Printer

PIXMA IP4200 won't 'accept' Pigment black--vent blocked?

Things were working fine until I had to replace my larger pigment black Canon ink tank. It seems capable of printing in all the dye based inks but the full pigment black won't seem to budge. Red light keeps flashing. My impression is that removing the tape did not succeed in exposing the tank's L-shaped vent on the top.
I have carefully used a razor blade and removed a tiny bit of tape that still remained...[to no advantage] ...yet my sense is that the tank has a faulty vent that is blocked by the actual plastic of the ink tank. Yet I can see the shape of the thing there. Should I pierce the vent area carefully? If so, how large does the vent need to be? Suggestions? >8^|

SOURCE: canon muti-pass MP360 INK TANK FULL

I believe what you are seeing is "WASTE INK TANK FULL"? This means that the tank that collects the waste ink from cleaning the head is full. You can read more than you ever want to know on this subject on the following link: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/38697#1 These are the steps to clear the message by reseting the counter: 1)Printer on, press Additional Functions, Scan, Copy, Scan Now you should be in service mode from there for waste ink tank reset 2)Select Test mode which is like the last available selection 3)Select #8 Printer Test, it will do something here like cleaning or something then it will come up with some other options this is where it gets a bit confusing cause now all it says is like 8-2 or 8-3 push the + or - button until it says 8-3 then hit the select button The menu will now say EEPROM Clear Select Ink count which is option (0) and press set Your done!

Depress power button while plugging the canon pixma ip1000. When you depress the power button, the printer can be used even if the in waste absorber hasn't been replaced.

It probably has to do with the chip embedded in your cartridges. This tells the printer what kind of ink you're using. Your cartridges could have the wrong chip.

I have a Canon pixma mp990 Recently it has stopped printing with the larger black ink cartridge that is meant for printing text (PGI-220BK) All the other cartridges print fine I was using a non-canon...


It looks to me that your non Canon cartridge has blocked the print head. I see this all the time. Remember the compatables are not pigment based but just watered down ink so you can get it to flow through a syringe into the cartridge. This however is the classic outcome of trying to save a few pennies on an expensive bit of kit!

My canon iP4500 will not use black ink on photopaper. If I tell it the paper is plain then it prints fine. If I tell it the paper is any type of photopaper the colours are great but there is no black ink...


If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

The black print head is clogged. The reason why the black is clogged and not the photo black or any colors is that the black is pigment ink and the photo black and colors are dye based ink. The pigment ink is a particulate formulation that binds up when water is evaporated out of the ink. You need to buy a new print head the fix the problem. You can buy a new print head for $75 from precision roller.com.

What is the purpose of the small black in cartridge


They are both described as black but the larger one is "pigment" black. So the answer is they will not switch over because they are different inks and different sizes.

Need to replace ink cartridge


http://reviews.cnet.com/multifunction-devices/pixma-mp830-office-all/4505-3181_7-31785803.html

Replacing the five ink tanks (cyan, yellow, magenta, black dye, and black pigment) is a simple task. The top of the printer flips up to reveal the ink tanks and the printheads, and by flipping a lever, you can pull out each tank individually. Being able to replace individual tanks is a boon, as you won't waste colors you use less frequently. Also, you won't need separate photo ink to print photos, which we appreciate. Canon ships the Pixma MP830 with full ink tanks. Replacement color and dye-based black ink tanks cost $14.25 apiece, while the pigment-based black ink tank costs $16.25. Canon estimates the cost per page for both black text and color text to be an inexpensive 2 cents.

Ink cartridge running low will it default small cartridge


It won't default to the small one...I emailed Canon support; this is the response I got.

The reason for the two different black ink tanks is for the different types of printing your unit is capable of. They are not intended as backups to each other. The larger black tank is pigment based, and is primarily used for standard black text printing or output. The smaller black ink tank is dye based like the color inks, and is used for photo and graphics output. They are designed to complement each other, allowing the printer to produce the best possible black text output or photo quality as appropriate.
