I have new photo (58) and color (57) carts and when I print wallet size (9 pics per 8.5x11 photo paper) the first 3 print true color and the last 6 are blue. I have cleaned the rollers and still do not...


hello, you are using the photo color ink cart, have you tried running a cleaning cycle or test print, the reason why i ask, is that maybe 1 of the colors is not printing, the test pages would prove what color is missing, if black not printing, it would print possible blue, or no black at all. i know you have put in new inks, but since the volume of ink in these cartridges run out according to usage, one color might run out before the others, and since black and yellow are the most used colors, without them your prints will show color faults.

Have you heard of Wysywig? What you see is what you get?

Well on color pictures on you monitor you get wysinwyg what you see is not what you get. Monitors are backlit, so colors are much more vibrant than what a printer can generally deliver. Explore the printing properties of your priinter as there are adjustments that can be made to enable better quality and true to color prints. The paper you use to print out your pics is also important in producing color that is close to original.

When you view your pics on screen try adjusting the color hue to the point it becomes overcolored and try a few experimental prints to see what level of the slide is needed to be used to achieve a brighter more vibrant picture. I would also like to say that the Canon 210 , whilst it is a very good printer, is at the cheaper end of the photo printer scale.

Talk to your ink and paper supplier, they can often show you or recommmend printers that are much higher and more accurate in delivering brighter and true to color photos.

2 light lines about every 1/2 inch through my photos


Replace the cartridges one at a time. I bet you'll find one is bad. This is especially true for refilled cartridges. I gave up on them and only buy new because of this problem. They are often bad as soon you get them.

Good luck and let us know what you find out

Trying to print a mixed photo/text document, my i860 only prints the photo. All cartridges have ink.


This sounds like this is a web page with mixed text and photo with a colred background for the text. I think that the true color of the text is white.
Have you put the document into a word processor to change the text to a visible color?

Lines thru photos


Try to clean the nozzles with the printer troubleshooter. It will force all the nozzles to print at maximum quality and will clean the clogged nozzles. If the procedure fail, then try again. This happens when you are not using the printer for long periods of time. If cleaning nozzles will not be helpful, then remove the color cartridge from his place and put it with the printing head in warm distilled water for 30 minutes.When the water is coloured by the ink, take the cartridge and touch the printing head with a soft paper towell. If a clear line of colour is printed on the towell, then is OK, put it back in the printer and print a test page. If is not , try again with patience.

Better way to conserve ink?


Sad but true. This is how printer mfgrs make their money...selling ink.

It's cheaper to take your photos on a memory card or CD to CVS Pharmacy and have them printed
