I just replaced the black and cyan ink in my i960 printer -- now nothing prints at all -- blank pages. I checked to make sure all of the packaging was off the cartridges

Run the Canon printer-software to launch a "print-head-cleaning" task,
because you may have "clogged" ink-jets, so that no ink can be sprayed onto the paper.

Test to see if FIXYA "censors" some words:

Start with the word CALM ( calm ) and swap the middle letters: **** ( **** ),
as in the ****-shell model of Apple portable computer,
or a cell-phone that opens like a ****-shell.

Do you see <star><star><star><star> instead of the word?
How about STUCK ( stuck ) and omit the 'T' to become: **** ( **** ),
as in "the printer sucks ink from the ink-tanks and jets the ink onto the paper".

Some letters are not printing clearly. They are smeared. I just replaced the black cartridge. It seems that after a few pages it gets better and you don't see as much of it.

Please check the printer ink levels and if the ink level is fine and it still not printing then I will like to know type printer you are using,then I can carring on from there.
