Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Not printing I just replaced the large black printer cartridge on my printer, and it is not printing. It was working absolutely fine before it stated I was out of ink. I thought the new cartridge might be defective, so I returned it and got another...still not printing.

    I am having the EXACT same problem. I am so frustrated. I have done so many things, and nothing. I replaced two cartridges and still nothing. I know its the 3e bk cartridge only. It seems that it doesn't recognize there is a cartridge in there at all!

    I too replaced the 3e cartridge after it ran out, and now the words are only partly printed. Are there any ideas?

    Ditto. Mac and PC had same problem so it's not the computer. Colors print but not black in all programs (notepad, wordpad, text editor, web). replaced 3e black and 6 black. Test pattern printed black, nothing else did though. Failed to clean or deep clean.

Make sure the tape on the top of the cartridge is completely removed (If there is still a seal Vacuum the ink won't flow).

Run up to 5 deep head cleanings in a row (Print test page)
wait 5 minutes (for heads to cool and repeat the process....)

If this fails to produce any printout, you may need to purchase head cleaning solution and allow it to soak in overnight.

I had a similar problem and needed 2 head cleaning kits.

Having problems with my ink cartridges, now I've used compatible cartridges as advised.


You may have gotten a cartridge that was in the store for a long time. Some cartridges may get solidified ink in the nozzles. Try a new cartridge from another dealer.

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

Won't print from small black ink tank


The large cartridge is for text and black pictures and the small one is for toning colours so you need to replace it. I found an absolute bargain on e-bay (2 packs of complete cartridges for £12-$18) when a set of origionals are £24 each set.

I can't print ordinary black text any more


In fact, I ran a couple more ordinary cleaning sequences with a new cartridge in place, and it prints normally now. The only anomaly is that the ink-level panel still shows the 3eBK as being half-full (which is the level it showed when I discarded the previous cartridge).

Black will not print


This may seem obvious but have you tried cleaning and refreshing the print heads? I've had a similar problem with only certain colors and the cleaning seemed to help.

Streaks / Bands of broken print area


First with a clean soft cloth and a very small amt of alcohol clean off the underside of the printer carridge (the holder for the print heads) also where the print heads cleaning station is clean out any large masses of congealed link. Then remove the ink cartridge in question and with a pencil eraser gently rub the contacts and both the cartridge and the carridge replace the cartridge. Using the software tools for the printer clean and align the printheads ( if there is an option to do so). If this dosn't fix the problem try a different ink cartridge.
