Question about Canon i9100 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

All my cartridges are new (in a Canon i9100) but halfway through printing some of the colours cut out: I have a print (from Photoshop CS) that is perfect till halfway down, then it goes to monochrome red. All cartridges show plenty ink and I have installed a new driver today. Same problem. Aaarrgghh.Wasting plenty big sheets of A3 paper, and punching the printer has not worked. :-)

My Canon Pro9000 MarkII prints photos with a red tint


You probably haven't calibrated your monitor to show the correct colours, so in whatever photo programme you're using, you're setting the red tones too high. Test this by first not calibrating your monitor, but turning down all the red tone until it looks washed out. Print this and see if it's better. If so, set your monitor to a cooler colour temperature. If the result is no better, check your print dialogue settings to make sure you are using an appropriate colour profile. And, for example, if you're using Photoshop, tick 'let Photoshop manage colours' in the advanced profile settings box. Hope this helps. I doubt there's anything wrong with the printer.

> replaced the print head

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

Why are only black and yellow printing?


The printer has two ink-cartridges: black and tri-color.
The black cartridge has ink left.
The tri-color cartridge has run out of 2 of the 3 colours of ink.
Buy a replacement tri-color cartridge,
and responsibly recycle the "empty" cartridge.

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

Printing only orange and yellow


Hi Florian,

if the cartridges are full, but still not all colours appear, it could be a driver issue. Try uninstalling the printer, reboot and install it again. Even pull the cartridges out and back in, just to be sure. Preferably check for newer printer drivers on Canon´s website. Let me know how it ended up Flo, ok?

Ink colour print problems


Ink that leaks out of the ink-cartridge when the print-heads are "parked" is absorbed into the "reservoir" tank. The tank is full. Get it emptied.

Printer prints color, but not black even with new cartridge


First thing to do is a head clean then do a test print. Do you see any of the black lines?
If not, don't do a deep clean as this uses up too much ink. Remove the ink cartridges and then remove the print head unit.
Run the print head under a hot tap for a few minutes until all the run off is clear. Take it outside if you can and shake it dry vigourously. You can use paper towel if you like but try not to wipe across the nozzles. Make sue the contacts are all dry and refit it to the printer. reinstall the ink cartridges and print a few test pages - the first couple may well be wasted but then it should start to print properly.
Is the black still missing? If it is do another head clean and another test print. Any improvement? If you start to see some black do some more head clean routines and it may well come back to normal. If on the other hand you see no trace of black at all, it could be that the print head is worn out and needs replacing.
This printer is now of an age where the print head may well be failing. Mine had to be replaced last year as one of the colours stopped printing.
The head is not exactly cheap - but it's cheaper than buying a new A3 printer.

Use original cartridges. Generic or refilled cartridges tend to cause these problems.

Colour errors


I would try changing photo papers to see if that improves or worsens the balance.
The absorbtion rate of papers differs greatly which can influence colo(u)r saturation.
