Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

I have refilled my color ink. After it prints 20 pages it lights up the "color ink" button meaning it's out of ink and starts printing poorly. I tried refilling twice with new ink - same thing happened.

Only want to use blkac ink only


When you want to print a page whether its a word page or any webpage as you give that print command before printing you will find many options in the left hand side like Destination,pages,layout,COLOR,margins options, So before printing the page you can easily check in the "black and white" option and it will simply print in black.

  1. After installing a new print cartridge, wait at least 20 seconds for the print cartridge alignment process to start.
  2. Wait for the print cartridge alignment process to fully complete.
  3. Make sure that the alignment page has printed on plain, white paper that has no other printing on it. If you need to create a new alignment page, load the tray with letter or A4 unused plain white paper and turn the product off and on again to create the page.
If an alignment page does not print when the product is turned on or off, the issue is resolved. If an alignment page continues to print when the product is turned on or off, you should replace the cartridges with new HP cartridges. Continue to Step two: Remove the print cartridges. Step two: Remove the print cartridges Follow the steps below to remove the cartridges. NOTE: When you remove and install the same print cartridge, the unit will not align the print cartridge as the unit remembers the alignment values for that print cartridge.
  1. Press the Power button to turn the product on. The Power button is lit when the unit is on. Figure 1: Power button lit c01336350.gif
  2. Make sure that the paper tray is down, and letter or A4 unused plain white paper is loaded in the paper tray.
  3. Lower the access door until it stops. Make sure that the print carriage moves to the right side. Figure 2: Lower the access door c01336351.gif
  4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then using your thumb, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Figure 3: Print carriage c01336352.gif
    • If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left.

  • The ink cartridges are not properly installed.
  • One of the ink cartridges is defective.
  • One of the ink cartridges is low or out of ink. Black and all three colors must be available.
  • Protective tape on a new ink cartridge has not been removed.

After replacing ink cartridge printer dose not reconize one of six


Using refilled in cartridges and incompatible inks result in the following problems.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might leak and cause product damage. One method for refilling ink cartridges is to drill a hole through the cartridge, refill the ink, and then plug it. In some cases this plug does not hold, and the ink runs into the product and damages the printed circuit boards.
  • Refilled ink cartridges frequently exhibit spotty printing or fail to print. This problem might be a direct result of the nozzles being plugged with dried ink. Because the vents of the refilled cartridges have been opened, air is able to enter the cartridge and dry the ink.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might exhibit lower print quality, for the following reasons.
    • Printing algorithms used to create the various colors are based on particular printer inks. Using incompatible inks might result in color matching problems.
    • Refilled cartridges might have damaged nozzle orifices, result in various problems with print quality.
    • company products to which the printer belongs to can use a time delay between pages to accommodate the properties of the specific media type and ink being used. This prevents smearing problems from one page to the next. Using incompatible ink will alter the effects of this time delay and might result in poor print quality.
  • printer might not recognize refilled ink cartridges. The refilling process may involve altering the ink cartridge enough that the product is unable to recognize it. The condition of the print cartridge electrical contacts deteriorates with use. This also results in the product being unable to recognize the refilled cartridge.
  • Refilled ink cartridges might get stuck in the product. Because the cartridges from other manufacturers have been altered, cartridges might become stuck in the product. This problem might require that the product be disassembled to remove the cartridge.
  • printer at times cannot predict the long-term effects on product reliability from using different ink formulations.

have a nice day.

the messages you get for cartridges other than the original are not trustful. You will get the right reading for original(from Brother) cartridges. Some ink is poor for printing photo quality.

not any refillable ink is right for printing photos, sometimes too dark, sometimes you don't get the right mix of colors.

No shadow density in photograph printing


If you haven't been printing for 6 weeks, your print head is clogged, which is why the print quality is poor. Turn your printer on. On your computer, go to START, then SETTINGS, find PRINTERS AND FAXES and click on that. A window will open and you should see your printer. Right click on it, then click on PROPERTIES. A window will open, with several tabs. The one you need is MAINTENANCE. Open the tab and click on CLEAN PRINT HEAD. I think there are 2 options, cleaning and deep cleaning. Click on deep cleaning. You should hear the printer rumbling, then, when it finishes, it should print a page with 4 colors: black, cyan, magenta and yellow. If the colors come out right, you're done. If not, repeat the cleaning until you get a satisfying result. Just bear in mind that cleaning the print head uses a lot of your ink, so I suggest you put the refilled cartridges when performing this operation.
Also, to avoid getting in this situation again, I suggest that you print one page, at least once in 10 days. That way, your print head should always work fine.

If you found my answer helpful, please vote, it really means a lot to me to know weather I am helping someone or not.

F380


You are using HP's cartridge with the smallest output . So if you are printing 80 pages of text, you will have a problem by the time you reach 95 or 100 pages. If you are printing in color, you only have 1ml/color. Meaning 3 colors. But in order to print a red, it will combine a magenta and yellow to product 1 color. So 3 colors doesn't mean 3 ml worth of colors. Effectively you may only be able to print 10-20 pages of color then your cartridge is empty. The black cartridge has about 4-5ml of ink. So if you print a lot I suggest you get another printer.
