My Canon i350 does not print all colors, just green. Cleaning and color ink tank replacement didn't help.
Any clues ?
In the midst of printing a color document printer goes from full color printing to just green. Tried to print other documents and it prints only green. Can you help, please?

Re: Canon i350 does not print all colors
Hope this will give you hints. To pin point directly you need to replace printer head. But before replacing please consider suction cartridge caps or nozzle by cleaning and freeing clogged airways by dettaching manually. I understand that the long time being not used has caused the problem. However if you can still use black and other colors then used it than complicating downtime in repairing procedures. Yes, you are right no need to clean deeper more than three times it will consume inks half empty. Have a nice day.

Sounds like the printer head is clogged or damaged.
I believe that sequence stands for (error sending data to print head). Not sure if it can be repaired or not, its hit or miss with the canon printers.
The ip series, the heads were removable and the whole section could be replaced. Give canon a call and see if thats possible with the i350 series. Worse case you will have to replace the whole printer.
The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange
Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used
during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is
nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the
error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely
full, contact a Canon service representative.
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this
error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no
longer be possible.
any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?
I replaced the Office Max ink substitute with an original Canon ink. This did not help. I decided this problem most probably had to be a printer head issue, so I gave up and bought a new printer instead.
You probably have to clean the print head itself, witch seems to be a common need. Just take the print head out and clean the outputs with a Q-tip and distillated water. If tha doesn't work, let it soak in about a 1/4 inch of distillated water for a day or two and it may unclug the openings. Good Luck.
Lift lid ,let carriage stop in middle, un-plug the printer > Remove all ink tanks > Remove print head > Soak print head in > 3 parts very warm water an 1 part ammonia over night. Rinse under faucet with water directly over ink ports, shake out excess water,(if when you shake it out and if color still comes out repeat soaking for another hour or two and rinsing again ,HAD TO DO MINE TWICE) let air dry. (hair drier helps) Cured my problem for a while ,but if not used almost every day, this will happen again, I also use compatible ink tanks. Don'T believe the inks are as good as Canon Ink. But who the hell can afford them. So fill your owe with Canon ink from Canon. Still seems that the cyan always dries up first. Good luck Lestero1
