Hi, (MX850) My blue ink has stopped printing. I




Performing Maintenance:




Note :
Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order indicated by the label on the Print Head Holder. The machine will not print if an ink tank is installed in the incorrect position.
Step 1
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern.




If lines are missing or if white streaks appear


Step 2
Print Head Cleaning.

If the problem is not resolved after performing Print Head Cleaning twice


After cleaning the Print Head, print and examine the nozzle check pattern (Step 1) again.


Step 3
Print Head Deep Cleaning.



If Print Head Deep Cleaning does not resolve the problem, turn off the machine and perform another Print Head Deep Cleaning after 24 hours. If the problem is still not resolved and if you are sure that the ink didn't run out, then the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

Hope this helps.
All the best.

Wont print out document in blue print


Sorry your having this issue. Because Blue is a lite shade of Black, or a combination of red yellow and green ???? Point is even if you have only a black ink cartridge, or only color cartridge. Blue should be visiable and able to print.
Good luck, jasahasch

Can't print BLUE.


I use a clear silicone tube to carefully prime the carts by sucking a dab of ink out of the tiny print holes before installation. I am careful to have a tight seal at the holes to prevent getting too much ink and possibly getting it in my mouth. Make sure each color appears.

This printer uses Printheads. Print a quality diagnostics page from tools in the setup menu. If there are lines (or no color) in the blue box then replace the C/M printhead.

Unfortunately, many inkjet printers require all the cartridges to be present and not empty in order to print anything. An inexpensive solution would be to buy a inkjet refill kit and chip reset utility. (many cartridges are "smart" and require a reset in order for them to think they're full)

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!

Printer won't print in black


This could be to several reasons:
1#  The black cart contains blue ink-> Change to a brand new cart.

2# The cart assy has a bottom that is a foil. Sometimes this foil leaks.
Ink will mingle: You need a new cart assy.

Run the cleaning cycle twice after inserting a brand new bk ink cart and print out a test print. If you still see blue instead of bk the assy is leaking.
BTW the bk is darker than blue (or better cyan). You must see bk! So it seems to be the prob with the right ink....
