Pretend you need to replace the ink again. Open the MP600 so the carriage moves to the center (just like your going to replace the ink). Than power off the printer. Remove the cartridges & look very closely at the copper contacts. (Sometime when you remove the protective tape some of the sticky tape leaves a residue. If you can not see anything than get some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Dampen the cotton & wipe the copper contacts on the ink cartridge (Not the bottom) & the copper contacts inside the carriage. Let everything dry. Alcohol does not leave a residue. Return the ink cartridges (good tight fit). Close the lid & power on the printer. Print a test page.
Left click once on the start button, slide up to & click on Printers and Faxes. The Printer and Faxes window will open. Right click once on your MP600 & left click on properties. Click Print a test page. If the colors did not come out correctly than run an alignment through your printer software & try again.
Everything I mention above is based on the idea that your printer was running just fine but you ran out of ink.
Please correct me if this is not the case.

Good Luck!
If I can be of more service, just ask.

Canon pixma mini 260 is printig blank photos ink cartridge is full


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.

I have a Canon Pixma 260 photo printer which I have not used for 2-3 years. Everything seems to be working EXCEPT when I try to print, nothing appears on the photo paper! I just bought a new ink cartridge...


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Can I print with one cartridge at canon pixma ip1300 with out replacing or installing other cartridge.


Absolutely, the only thing you need to do is to configure your setting to the right appropriate ink, say for example you ran out of black ink you can go to printing properties and select to be printed in blue, in this case the color match will use magenta and cyan to create blue.
1 select your default printer 2 select printing preference from your printer from there you can change the color of your desired print 3 you can select print in color for example or grayscale 4 then print your document.
cheers

I put blue ink in a black cartridge and from then


Hi, you shouldn't have done that, because the color cartridge and black cartridge are not of the same make, what you need to do now is to change the cartridge, get a new cartridge to replace to troubleshoot,let see if it will print.

Compliments and wish you best of luck.

The mini 260 printer do not print


rncoral,

go into the preferences of the printer, under the maintenance tab you will see head clean. clean the head and do a nozzle check. If you get nothing after two or three head claens, then the head is failing and will require replacing.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.


Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.
