Run the printer through a print head cleaning. Check your printer's manual for how to do this as each printer model is different.

Colors not printing right in canon i960


check the ink level.
As this printer uses six different color tanks, if any one color is not there it will affect the printing quality.

My Canon i960 is printing 4x6 prints with what looks like striping very faintly thru the picture. I have done all the maintience and the ink levels are good.


It's a sign that some of the print nozzles are plugged or burned out. A new printhead will give you the good print quality again. QY6-0043-000 around $70.00

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 prints but no ink on page-new printhead (not clogged)


Sounds like the print head is no good. This happens. Here's a link to a site that sells them reasonably.

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.

Canon i960 printer won't print in blue


Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!

Cannot clean Canon i960


The print driver might not be sending the correct color profile for photo paper. Check that your selection of the paper type "sticks", that is, that it doesn't revert to plain paper when you click on the print button.
If the print dialog is not working properly, then please get in touch with Canon's tech support to resolve this.

Canon i960 Streaking


There is a setting in the print dialog that will put more space between the print head and your print media, but, like Epson, Canon has chosen to bury this setting in the maintenance tab of the printer properties menu.

To get there (in xp), you need to click start, printers (and faxes, I believe), look for the icon for your i960 printer, right click, then click properties. Across the top of the resulting dialog box are tabs. I don't have XP running so have to do this from memory, but there are tabs for page setup, print settings, etc. I believe the right most tab is for maintenance. Under maintenance, I believe there is a choice for options or custom options . . . something like that. Click there and look for a choice that offers to prevent paper abrasion. Click to put a dot in the selection button, click ok (or apply, whatever) and then back out of that dialog box.

If you have selected this option correctly, a dialog will pop up when you go to print advising you of this selection (apparently, to let you know that the print head will be pulled away from the media slightly . . . could result in slightly diffused resolution if you were printing on media of normal thickness, I suppose).

I actually discovered this feature because I went looking for it on my Epson RX595 while printing wedding invitations for my son's wedding. The invitation featured an embossed square on the front cover that was coming into contact with the RX595 print head causing ink smudges at various points on the invitation. I found an explanation as to how to locate this setting for the Epson printer, and, low and behold, found that the similar setting, though named differently ('avoid abrasion' or something equally obscure) was located in the same area of the Canon print dialog (Maintenance tab . . . go figure).

It definitely worked on both printers for me. In previous older printers, there used to be a lever on the print head carriage that could be adjusted to manually move the print head away from the print media - this 'soft' way to accomplish that simple task is progress, I guess.

Otherwise, I have to say that the i960 continues to be my absolute favorite printer of all time.
