Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

New printhead will only print 3eBK, no color

I just purchased a new printhead for my i860 printer since the yellow (6Y) would no longer print. After installing the new printhead, nothing but the 3eBK ink will print. If I re-install the old printhead, everything prints but the 6Y ink.
Any suggestions for how to get the new print head to print the 6C, 6Y, 6M, and 6BK (or for how to get the old printhead to print the missing 6Y - I tried cleaning the old printhead with alchohol, but that did not unclog it).

Thanks!

    New original printhead, like the old, don't prints.
    Ink thanks are full, but nothing is blowed on paper also if all mechanical movements are full regular.
    Maybe an electric problem of printhead connection?

    the printhead is not installed or the printhead installed is not compatible with the printer. insert a correct printhead, and then close the printer cover

If you're concerned with a clogged printhead try to clean it with acetone solution. Also, check the cable connections to your printerheads they might be loosened..

No yellow colour


If the yellow cartridge is full then you may have blocked yellow printhead nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new printhead is required.
A new printhead maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

The auto print head alignment prints ok. The Nozzle check from top to bottom prints as follows: 3eBK ok; 6C top half light blue - bottom half darker blue; 6C ok; 6M top half light pink - bottom half darker...


It sounds like your black (K) or Black/Yellow (KY) head needs to be replaced.
The problem appears to be in the top half of the black head.
Without knowing more (like what make/model the printer is) I can't help more than that.

I think I put in a wrong colored toner cartridge. Pages printing in wrong colors. Can't find a list of the cartridges I should be using.


The make and type of cartridge is generally given in the users handbook/manual provided with the printer. If you do not have that ,you can log on to Canon web site and then go to support. Select your printer model and you can find the the specification of cartridge to be used with your printer. The list of the cartridges is given below: BCI-3eBk Black ink tank, BCI-6Bk Black ink tank, BCI-6C Cyan ink tank, BCI-6M Magenta ink tank, BCI-6Y Yellow ink tank You can also go the this link and download the manual if you do not have the same http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip4000#Overview

IP5000 3ebk problems


Hi,

I had a similar problem. Pages in blue, but nozzle check in black. Tried what you tried. Changed the ink ($). Still no change. Then tried the maintenance option to clean the bottom plate. And now it is working. Go figure.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

How to remove printhead from canon i860


The gray-colored arm (it's not that small) is to the right of the cyan cartridge. It is the arm or extension of the gray-colored hinged cover. Remove all ink cartridges, lift the gray-colored arm up, and pull the print head out. Clean the print head with a cotton ball soaked with water or rubbing alcohol. Dry and re-install the print head.
