Question about Canon i80 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No colour printing

I used to print coloured documents from my Canon i80. One day, after replacing the ink tanks appropriately, the printer could no longer print colour documents. I tried to check the settings on the computer file but evrything seemed normal. What could be the problem?

Thank you

    it looks like the side where the black ink goes in looks dried and hard i cleaned it but it looks like the ink can not go through my color is good

    Installed new (off brand ) ink. Did a deep clean(3x's plus 2 reg cleans) and still no color or black will print. I used 2 cartridgesof each now doing this. Where did all my ink go and why is it still not printing? The printer had been setting for awhile is there a way to take the rider area that the ink cartridges ride in and clean the underside?

    Thanks

The problem with Canon printers sometimes is that, if you do not use original cartridges and put compatible ones, the printer will not recognise them. Even if you refill the originl ones the printer will still think that they are empty due to the microchip that every cartridge has. Try using original inks. If you already used original inks, then another reason might that the ink tubes have benn blocked because of dried ink if you haven't used your printer for a long time. Try performing a deep clean through the printer application.
Hope that helps

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.

All colours and black print faded. Black is a


ANSER #1

Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.

If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged.

Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.

If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality.

Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink
tanks.

Note Before performing maintenance
Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action.
Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.

Printer will only print in colour ink, not anything in black text


The issue your having is more then likely the ink cartridge itself or the printhead. Here is the steps in checking and possibly fixing the issue. Step 7 though should be done by a repair tech.

(1) Check that the orange cap or tap is not on the printhead.
(2) Remove the printhead and re-install it.
(3) Perform printhead cleaning, and visually check the test print for non-discharge of ink from nozzle.
(4) Perform head-refreshing, and visually check the test print for non-discharge of ink from nozzle.
(5) Replace the appropriate ink tank.
(6) Replace the printhead
(7) Replace the purge unit.

Print heads and test prints fine......will not print ay documents


I subsequently discovered that only black would not print - the other colours did. The following solution should work for any colour

Turn on the printer
Lift the front cover so that the ink tanks line up at the front
Move the grey arm to the right of the yellow upwards
Remove the ink tanks (in my case 4)
Carefully lift out the plastic holder for the ink tanks, this I believe holds the print heads
Clean the head(s) using cotton buds and injet refill ink cleaning fluid. I get mine from Tescos with my refill inks.
Replace everything and hopefully your printer will be o.k. Mine was

Mono color


These models use a "3 colour" printing process. In other words, these printers do not contain black ink when the BC-05 colour cartridge is installed. To produce black print, a 3 colour printer mixes an equal amount of the three primary colours. This process is known as "composite" black.

As the ink in the cartridge runs out, one of the three primary colours will run out first, depending on the material that has been printed. After one of the three colours has depleted, this colour will be missing from the mixture required to print black, and the print will change colour. This is the indication that the cartridge needs to be replaced. Usually the remaining colours in the cartridge will run out soon afterwards.

Why is there 2 black ink cartridges in my Canon MP600 printer


On some printers, probably including yours, the black ink will be taken from the reserves in your colour cartridge unless you specifically tell it to do a black and white print on each document, regardless of whether it's printing black exclusively. I wouldn't worry, the black ink in it's own cartridge can also be used for colour photos etc with no detrimental effects.
