Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon i560 does not print pictures very well.

Hello,

I have been printing only with a black cartridge for a long time now. Everything was fine until about a month ago, when I noticed that pictures are not printed very well. It's like some areas of the picture are not there, like I'm missing details or something. Or today I tried to print a chart and some lines were completely white. Help! My print settings are "grayscale", so I don't understand why I'm having this issue. Everything else prints out fine. Words, etc. It's just the pictures that have problems. Thanks.

I have had the same problem with both black and colour, just take out your printhead and put it in a large mug and pour hot water not boiling into where the ink tanks sit and fill it just up to there leave it soak for a few mins and you will see the ink disolving into the water keep tipping out the water and doing this until not too much ink is saturating the water and all you are doing is unclogging the jets, must be hot water cold water doesnt work. After you think the jets are clear dry the printhead off with a hair dryer shove it back in, do a deep clean, maybe a couple, and it should print in all colours, if not repeat the above process and even let it soak overnight

Color


Recheck the placement of the ink cartridges. The black ink cartridge is larger; the cyan, magenta, yellow cartridges are all the same size.

When the ink cartridges were replaced, two or more may have been inadvertently switched or an extra yellow cartridge placed in.

Canon i560 won't print black text anymore


I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

Canon i560s prints all colors except black


I had a similar problem and found out that you have to specify printing on plain paper. If you choose paper other than plain paper, it will make the black from other colors. Check also that all of your cartridges are seated properly. My magenta was not pushed all the way down so I got green instead of black ink when it mixed the colors to make black.

Prints black on test page, but not when a job is sent to the printer


make all your printer settings to default. If any problem in that simply uninstall & re-install the driver.

 

If still no good, your black cartridge might have dried-up

Can I go to grayscale all the time?


Usually 'black' or greyscale uses all colours to get a true black in many printers. Check you particular printer manual and soft ware to see if it allows for black/grey only. You could experiment [I don't know this particular printer] by putting black carts in all slots [If it is a chipped cart you may have to consider swapping the chips on the carts if removable. Some specialist ink firms[Lycos] do supply monochrome sets for certain printers - check them out. Also take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com
