Question about Canon BJC 8200 Photo InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Losing Ink I refilled a couple cartridges as I have done many times before. I installed them and did jet cleaning and print head alignment. Couple colors did not appear. I repeated the process a couple time and received a warning the cartridges I installed and a couple others were empty. Seemed impossible. No ink ran out of the printer, yet the tank of the cartridges were indeed empty. I went to local replacement cartridge store and bought 6 new cartridges, one for each color. I installed them and did a couple test prints after doing a roller cleaning. A - D - E poorly printed different shades of black. Tank B was a striped med blue color and Tank C was an orange/yellow striped color. The tanks on all 6 of the new cartridges are now very close to empty. WHERE IS THE INK GOING????? what can I do?? $60 of ink just disappeared!

Depending on how many times you have refilled the wells of the cartride the sensor inside may be going bad as the manufature of the cartridge only intended it for a one time use. My recommendation would be to buy a off brand compatible and refill those.

Can Dell A960 ink cartridges be refilled and re-used or not?


A lot of inkjet printer manufacturers make you purchase their ink cartridges by installing a chip in the cartridges so when the cartridge is empty it cannot be reused by filling the cartridge.

Hi, i'm getting error message 1203 on the printer and we've lost the user's manual. Can you tell me what this is?


Error 1203 is a very interesting error code. Here is what I found out about error 1203



Error 1203 is a very interesting cartridge error. It means your cartridges overflow even from brand new cartridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the cartridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the cartridge


Solution:
I use the lint free cloth(coffee filter work great) with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the cartridges a couple times then run clean cartridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of lint free cloth(coffee filter work great on those holder contact panel.

Vertical lines when printing. Have genuine Epson cartridges installed and most are brand new. Have done a print head alignment and cleaned the nozzles.


You have a clogged print head. If repeated running of the head cleaning routine does not work, you can take a Q-tip and dip it in warm or hot water and gently rub it across the print head. You should see ink on the Q-tip. Do this a couple times until it appears that more ink is flowing then try the head cleaning routine again. This is a common problem when inkjets sit unused for awhile.

Will not print the black ink


You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning. It’s best to do this each time you install a new cartridge. for more information….... http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-40171-printer-not-printing-black

Black ink will not print text


maybe the ink jet cartridge is depleted. This is common on all ink jet printers.
Or, the ink jet cartridge has tape on the head.

Error code 1203


Hello

It means your cartridges overflow even from brand new cartridges after a several prints or right after you refilled the cartridges. Check to see if ink are smeared on the holder where the contact panel with the cartridge. I have the same problem which I think lexmark has to overlook in production.

Solution:
I use the Kleenex with a few drops of water to dampen and clean off those contact on the holder and my printer work again.
The refill ink work very well if you let it sit 24 hrs. Then before you print anything, you should run aligned the cartridges a couple times then run clean cartridges a couple times.
Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of Kleenex on those holder contact panel.

Best regards

Printer not printing in black


Problem Solved --- Agree with the comment about "not buying the cheap ink". Stick with the Canon PiXMA (PGBK 5) and (BK 8) black ink refills. The printer can be cleaned and/or deep cleaned using the Menu Button to find this function.

COLOR NOT VIVID


The DeskJet 940c is not really the highest quality printer out there on the market. However, having said that, the printer is still capable of producing decent quality printouts. You might play with your printer settings for print intensity, lightness, ink volume.

Black won't print!!


Hi denzirelli, Apparently several reviews of this printer say it is known for poor print quality when dealing with graphics AND the tubes can become blocked. As far as troubleshooting goes if you haven?t done so already purchase a new set of official Brother ink jet cartridges, black and color. The newer ink jets are a lot smarter and remember the last couple of cartridge serial numbers. If that doesn?t work then try running the nozzle cleaning utility a couple of times. If that fails call the Brother and let them walk you through the troubleshooting process. I don?t suggest you lie, just don't volunteer the fact that you were evil and tried to deprive them of their profit. Worst case they won?t do a warrantee replacement, best case is you?ll have a working printer. If you don?t want to pursue the above option or if tech support won?t help then we?re back to troubleshooting again, when you say it doesn?t print black does that mean colors do print? If that?s the case then I suspect the black tube or the nozzles are blocked. From what I?ve read it?s a little bit of a pain to remove the print head but the key is not to disconnect the tubes. Remove the print head and the cartridge container as a unit. The ribbon cables have to be unplugged from the circuit board. Disconnect the belt and you should be able to take the print head out and clean it. Let us know how it turns out and don?t forget to rate the posting.
