NOT A SOLUTION, JUST SOME FACTS
First of all, your printer is "NOT" the worst model ever made, every printer that hp (as you probably noted I used small letters hp because I think hp is a small worm of a co.) makes is a problem waiting to happen. The worst of it all is that the don't care about there customers. I have a almost $300.00
photosmart that is a few months out of warranty, even though it stayed new in the box for over 6 months because of a heart attack I had. I ran out of two of the colored Inks, but continued to use the printer for word documents only till shortly after, the printer said it was unable to print till the two empty colour cart. were replaced. I continued printing all other items on my up stairs computer. About a month later, I purchased the cart. needed, installed them in the photosmart,(which I think is a oxymoron) and the printer came up with,"Ink System Has Failed" Error code oxc18a0306.
I know this is getting long winded, but it's the only way to get my point across fully. I contacted hp and after over 40 min. they told me that the error code was fatal and could not be fixed!!!!! They said It was out of warranty and would not be replaced for any amount of money besides paying full price for a replacement. ( Ya Like I Would Buy Another hp product). I have since then had the printer checked out and a small pc board with, a valve or sensor for all the ink supplies is not letting the yellow ink out of the pump to the print head. I contacted again, like a fool, hp and was on the phone for another 52.min. till they told me that part was not available..... End of story
P.S.
I hope this story gets out to every person that had, or has a hp product and
had a problem that was not resolved by hp, besides telling the customer they will fix the problem by selling to you ,at full price another printer.....
I'm All For Boycotting hp!
P.P.S.
I hope this gets back to hp

Why won't my printer print black with all new cartridges?


Remove all inks, then the printhead & sit the printhead on a soft cloth soaked in warm water - let it sit for a few minutes then reinstall, close lid then make the machine ask for the inks once the inks have then been installed it should prime the machine. If this does not work try it again & if that fails then your printhead probably needs to be replaced.

All color images are printing pink/orange. all inks are only 1% used. the very first photo i printed was beautiful. every photo since has been the pink orange color. even the black is not printing well


This sounds like a blue ink cartridge failure or a clogged blue ink nozzle. If you have cleaned the nozzles, I would try another blue cartridge. if this does not solve the problem more aggressive cleaning may be required. Let me know and we can go throught the process. Thanks.

Hi Good day!!! try this trick ^_^ open the cover of your printer to see the print head, now turn off your printer you will see your print head is moving when it moves to the center pull out the power cord of your printer ( this trick is about good timing) if success the print head is now in the center now remove the ink cartridge (note don't installed the new cartridge yet) now turn back on you printer without the cartridges, your printer will recognize that the cartridges are missing, ^_^ and finally your printer will find the your inks after that insert it according to its location.

Thanks in advance. Canon i860 has not been used for three years, with ink cartridges in place, only prints blue text, whats your recommendation?


A cartridge can have a life for 6 months to the maximum after which the ink either dries up or evaporates.
Thes best think for you do is to clean up the printer and replace the cartridges.

Then the printer would work as good as new. I would also recommend you to install the drivers for the printer by downloading the drivers from the manufacturer's website.

Align the cartridges using the software and print a test page. Clean the cartridge heads and then the printer is all set to go !

Canon i960 printer won't print in blue


Your problem is the print head. You can buy one from Canon for about $95, or find them new from dealers on Ebay for $60 to $70. For a less expensive fix, try to remove the print head and clean it. (You don't need any tools, just remove the ink tanks and pull the print head forward and out. Over time, the receivers tend to get dry & crusted ink on them. Note that the inks used are fast drying inks to keep your pictures, etc. from smudging after you print them. Try not to use solvent. I use q-tips and hot water, then dry using another q-tip. If this does not work, there are commercial cleaning kits available for about $10. Short of that, your choice is to replace the print head or the printer itself. My i960 prints such good quality color prints and normal color printing, that I would fix it rather than replace the printer. I hope the easy cleaning does it for you!

Poor photo printing


when the printer says that "for best results use Epson Ink." They mean it! otherwise using Xprint cartridges works as well, if changing the type of ink doesn't work then you might have to tinker with the advanced settings (you can change the amount of color used in the print) when you click the properties button in the print screen, ONLY if you know what you are doing!!

Non of the inks are working, even though they are all new carts.


so go back to maintenance mode. Make sure all carts are at full level, placed well and are secured. press 7 then 6 then 4 by help of arrow-up and set key. display should be init_all. press start bk-copy. when finished (maintenance) press 7-6-3 then start bk-copy.
leave maintenance after cleaning procedure by pressing 9 then 9. If youre lucky the generic ink hasnt affected the ph. print a test prit. if you cant see any blocks nor signs the ph needs replacement.

anyway: if you use generic ink do mix some glycerol (glycerin alc.) from drugstore: 2ml of 85%-glycerol with 8ml of generic ink. This prevents the ph nozzels from drying out or clogging!

Hi,

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.

Besr regards,
