    Hi again,

    It will make a few light squeaks while printing, as if it the carridge is dry. The noise referred to in my first post, starts at the end of printing,as the print ejects, and will drive one from the room!!!

    One of my Canon i960s screams like a banshee when ejecting a print! This can be a nozzle test or an 8.5 x 11. The sound is two or more parts rubbing together. How do I fix this, and with what? I have repaired a few printer, so opening it will not be a problem.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Azraelsrl,

    that makes a lot of sense. The sound was reminiscent of an old Dodge I had! Do you have a diagram of what berings may be the cause?



    Thanks,

    Steve

The bearings for the rollers are worn out. Just dismantle the printer and oil them. While you're there grease all the other gears.

    Sorry, i no longer have the documentation for such an old printer. But there are easy to find - they are the bearings on which the bottom roller (the one just at the exit) spins. You will have to remove the housing of the printer to access it.

Hello,

Clean out the nozzles through the printer utility and that should solve the problem.

But if the problem is not solved, then you will have to buy a new print head because it sounds like a print head.

Good luck.

I've tried several "fixes" and none have worked so


You can try reseating the print head.
Click on Service and Support, then type in 5 flashing lights. Click on the first result, then the first on the solutions list.

Colors not printing right in canon i960


check the ink level.
As this printer uses six different color tanks, if any one color is not there it will affect the printing quality.

My Canon i960 is printing 4x6 prints with what looks like striping very faintly thru the picture. I have done all the maintience and the ink levels are good.


It's a sign that some of the print nozzles are plugged or burned out. A new printhead will give you the good print quality again. QY6-0043-000 around $70.00

My printer keeps printing greenish and blue/yellow


I fixed this problem for free with advice from the canon experts at the canon website, without them trying to sell me anything like a "plan" as your website has proposed.

Canon i960 qill not put ink on paper


I called Canon. I also had green 1 flash and amber 1flash everytime I turned on the printer. That right there indicates an elecrical problem. The flashes mean it needs serviced and with it not printing now means it's not wirth fixing, out of warranty. Canon did offer a code for reduced price new or referbished print from them.

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!

Cannot clean Canon i960


The print driver might not be sending the correct color profile for photo paper. Check that your selection of the paper type "sticks", that is, that it doesn't revert to plain paper when you click on the print button.
If the print dialog is not working properly, then please get in touch with Canon's tech support to resolve this.

I960 canon printer


Lift lid ,let carriage stop in middle, un-plug the printer > Remove all ink tanks > Remove print head > Soak print head in > 3 parts very warm water an 1 part ammonia over night. Rinse under faucet with water directly over ink ports, shake out excess water,(if when you shake it out and if color still comes out repeat soaking for another hour or two and rinsing again ,HAD TO DO MINE TWICE) let air dry. (hair drier helps) Cured my problem for a while ,but if not used almost every day, this will happen again, I also use compatible ink tanks. Don'T believe the inks are as good as Canon Ink. But who the hell can afford them. So fill your owe with Canon ink from Canon. Still seems that the cyan always dries up first. Good luck Lestero1
