My i960 will not print colors correctly ( magenta) on photo paper ( used Kodak an Costco). Prints on paper ok.
It will not feed paper when doing a 'cleaning' od 'deep cleaning'. It will feed paper for other functions.
Thanks for your help in advance

I had the same prob w/my I960, went to the Canon website and they said to do a DEEP CLEAN before replacing the print head.
Worked for ME!! Cheers-Herb.

Lift lid ,let carriage stop in middle, un-plug the printer > Remove all ink tanks > Remove print head > Soak print head in > 3 parts very warm water an 1 part ammonia over night. Rinse under faucet with water directly over ink ports, shake out excess water,(if when you shake it out and if color still comes out repeat soaking for another hour or two and rinsing again ,HAD TO DO MINE TWICE) let air dry. (hair drier helps) Cured my problem for a while ,but if not used almost every day, this will happen again, I also use compatible ink tanks. Don'T believe the inks are as good as Canon Ink. But who the hell can afford them. So fill your owe with Canon ink from Canon. Still seems that the cyan always dries up first. Good luck Lestero1

I had this problem with a Canon Pixma MP620. Prints were greenish, both colour prints and B&W prints, and they had stripes across them. I tried a lot of cleaning, wiping and dismantling, and nothing worked.
My solution was simple: I took out the RED (magenta) ink cartridge and "milked" it. I did this by pressing the back part of the ink cartridge between my thumb and index finger. You can see ink going from the back part "reservoir" to the nozzle part where ink is distributed. I did this until a drop fell from the nozzle. I put it back in the printer, and after this, prints were back to their beautiful selves.
I hope this works for you too.

Having trouble with ink refills


Many aftermarket companies have inferior parts in their ink cartridges. Stay with the genuine cartridge for yours. To save money refill your own. They can be refilled at a low cost and the cartrige will reload about 7 to 9 times before it no longer any good to use any more

New ink tanks for I960 - pics have a green cast...head check indicates magenta and photo magenta not printing. Have already tried cleaning and deep cleaning????


This printer model has a print head seperate from the carts. Over time, the print head can become clogged. Try removing the print head assembly from the printer and dipping just the printhead (the silver thing on the bottom) into a shallow dish of just boiled water several times. Dry off, reinstall print head and carts and try again. My need to do a few times. This will get rid of any congealed ink on the print head. Otherwise, new printer, as the replacement print head is more expensive than a new printer. Canon kind of made these disposable. Can also try to inject water through the cartridge port when the printhead is out of the printer ( the hole where the cartridge goes into) with hot water as well...

Canon i960 qill not put ink on paper


I called Canon. I also had green 1 flash and amber 1flash everytime I turned on the printer. That right there indicates an elecrical problem. The flashes mean it needs serviced and with it not printing now means it's not wirth fixing, out of warranty. Canon did offer a code for reduced price new or referbished print from them.

I was printing the other day and each page got lighter and lighter and now it doesn't print anything in black. There's ink in it and I turned off the printer. What else do I need to do to get it to print...


How long has it been since you printer prior to the other day ? If you do not use your printer for some time, the ink will dry out even if it's a new cartridge.

My canon i960 is printing only green


I had this problem. If I tried to print a black& white photo on to glossy paper, it would only print green. When I tried on to plain paper using the 'fast' option, it printed in black. The reason for this is, on plain paper it uses the black cartridge, but output to glossy photo paper using the 'high' option, uses the mix of colours in your colour cartridge. If one or more of your colours has run out, you will get a print with the ink left in the cartridge. Replace the cartridge or refill it & your problem is solved.
