Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Red isn't red!!

I finally figured out that my i860 was sucking ink from another cartrige. If I'm ready to print something that needs red ,I pop out the contaminated one and put in a new one, and everything is fine.I have to remember to take the new one out after I'm finshed and put in the bad one. Is there an easy fix for this,or would it be cheaper to buy a new printer? falsr90@hotmail.com

Why is my printer not printing right


This sounds like the chip on the ink cartrige, try cleaning the chip or replacing the red magenta ink. How a printer works, information from the Dynamic Link Libary is sent to the printer driver, this information is where to print on the paper and what colour to print, ie turning the ink jets on and off, the depth of colour comes from each ink by mixing the inks from the information in the photo or text. All ink problems are usually from ink faults, miss printing comes from driver information. Phill

Since installing new ink cartrige every time I turn on the printer it prints an alignment page


Hi:
This problem is usually caused by one of the colors in the installed cartrige not printing out on the alignment page. You need to have red, blue and yellow working to get a good alignment. Try removing the cartridge, and wiping the print head with a wet paper towel to try to start the ink flowing. You should see three bands of color ink oozing out the bottom. If not, the cartridge is bad and needs replaced again!

Colors are off. Browns print green or purple. I


BROWN is made by mixing two of the three "primary" colours.
So, if the printer is out of RED ink, you'll get the "other" primary colour.

Print a "test" page, and verify that part of that page is RED.

Run a printer "cleaning" cycle, and consider replacing the RED cartridge.

Magenta and yellow ink not printing on test print


Print head is probably plugged. With caution (this can ruin your printer if you get too violent) take a Q-Tip wet with rubbing alcohol and touch the printhead where the ink tranfers to the paper. To get access to the cartridge open the cover and when the carriage moves to the center unplug the printer. The alcohol may soften the dry ink enough to get it printing again. If it starts printing again do a print cartrige cleaning with the software included with the printer.

My HP photosmart A520 Printers ink wont align


I had the same problem with mine when I bought it. The print head is in the ink cartrige not the printer. If it prints all red, blue or yello one of them is stuck, this happened on the trial cartrige that came with it. I put a fresh 110 in it and it aligned and I have printed a TON of pix with no problems.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Problem with colored cartridge


Perhaps your cartride is low on ink, some printers will give you a status inside your printer settings on how much ink is in the cartridges.
