Black ink won't print and I just changed the ink


Try using the photo paper option instead of the plain paper option.

I was using plain paper but, selecting the plain paper option...I could barely read the print. The photo paper option worked great!

Hope it helps!

My printer won't align new ink. It says load paper in tray. I load it. then blank page come out and gives me the same message. Load paper in tray. I did a diagnostic test and at the bottom it says...


Sorry to know you're in trouble with your printer. Here are my suggestions: You have to buy a new genuine cartridge or you can refill ink. Be warned! Refilling ink or using a refilled ink cartridges will not work until the ink cartridge chip or ink monitor is disabled. For instructions on how to disable an ink cartridge chip, please visit [http://www.ehow.com/how_6201242_disable-ink-cartridge-chip.html]Now you can CURSE the manufacturer of your printer for making your life sucks by making it complicated the things that should be made SIMPLE and EASY. Printer or Cartridge, more or less, cost you the same. Don't you think the printer cartridges should be made simply refillable/usable unless they are broken, and we should be buying only the ink for the cartridges. It is SO ANNOYING, dude! Good luck.

Printing with an empty ink cartridge may cause printer malfunction. U051 / U052
U053 / U059 The ink cartridge may not be set properly, or an ink cartridge not supported by the printer is installed.
Install the proper ink cartridge.

Make sure to install both the ink cartridges even when you set the printer to use only one ink cartridge (Color or Photo) in printing.
If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error will occur. U075 / U076 The ink cartridges are not installed in the proper position.
Install each ink cartridge in the proper position. U140 An ink cartridge not supported by the printer is installed.
Install the proper ink cartridge. U161 / U162 A used ink cartridge may be installed, or the ink cartridge may be empty.
Replace the ink cartridge.

By pressing the OK button, printing can be done without replacing the ink cartridge. However, the remaining ink amount cannot be detected properly, so the function to detect the remaining ink amount does not operate. READ/WRITE MODE Since the memory card is currently write-enabled, printing is not possible.
Set READ-ONLY MODE ON. NO PHOTOS ON CARD Some images in the memory card may not be in a supported format. images listed below cannot be printed directly from a memory card. Print them from a computer.

I have a Canon i9900 printer. I have used the daylights out of it. Can printers start to print blurry if they are wearing out? My prints look fine at 100% on the monitor, and when I print the picture it...


Hi there,


Problem : Ink does not eject properly or Printing is blurred or Colors are Wrong or White streaks appear.

Cause 1 : Ink tank is not seated properly or the ink tank is empty.
Action : Check that the ink tanks are firmly seated in the print head and reseat them, if necessary.
Check that the correct ink tanks are installed and that they are in correct order.
Check to see if all the orange tape has been peeled off. If a part of the orange tape remains, remove it thoroughly.
If an ink tank is empty, replace the ink tank.

Cause 2 : Print head is misaligned.
Action : Align the Print head.

Cause 3 : Print Head nozzles are clogged.
Action Print the nozzle check pattern to check for uneven ink output.
When specific color is missing from the nozzle check pattern, clean the print head.

Cause 4 : paper is not loaded with the print side up.
Action : Checl that your paper is loaded with the correct print side facing up.
Note: Follow the instructions packaged with your specialty media for loading and handling.

Cause 5 : Incorrect paper type.
Action : Windows : On the Main tab of the printer driver, confirm that the selected Media Type matches the paper loaded.
Mac : In the Print dialog box of the printer driver, select Quality &
Media from the popup menu, and then confirm that the selected Media Type matches the paper loaded.

Cause 6 : Glossy photo paper other than the Canon specialty media is used.
Action : Select Other Photo Paper from Media Type. It may resolve the problem. Load one sheet at a time and remove each sheet as soon as it is printed.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.
