Will a canon printer i560 take PGI-220 , CLI-221 ink replacements. I purchased this at Costco. On the side of the box there are a number of numbers, one of them is MP560. Will this work?? Thanks ...


Hi Wayne. The i560 and MP560 are different beasts.
According the Canon, the i560 takes 1x BCI-3eBK, 1x BCI-6M, 1x BCI-6C & 1x BCI-6Y, and the MP560 takes 1x PGI-520BK, 1x CLI521BK, 1x CLI-521M, 1x CLI-521C & 1x CLI-521Y
Although the BCI-3eBK and the PGI-520BK look similar, they are in fact different.
Also the 3 colour carts look the same but are again different, the BCI carts all have microchips in them and the optical sensor in the bottom is also slightly different.
Searching the Canon supplies section, I cannot find either PGI-220 or CLI-221.

This sounds as though the actual print head has failed or is close to failing. You can get new print-heads form you local Canon service centre - they are not exactly cheap - but cheaper than a new printer.

Check if there is a tape over the top vent intended to let air into the ink tank and so ink can flow out to the writing head.

IP5000 3ebk problems


Hi,

I had a similar problem. Pages in blue, but nozzle check in black. Tried what you tried. Changed the ink ($). Still no change. Then tried the maintenance option to clean the bottom plate. And now it is working. Go figure.

PIXMA MP780 printing trouble


If you haven't done so, I would try another new cartridge. It is entirely possible (and occurs frequently) that you got a bad cartridge. Assuming you removed the tape from the cartridge before putting it in, this is generally indicative of either a bad cartridge, bad print head, or that heads or ink tanks may need cleaning.

The Canon support page for this printer is at:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=10444

However, as Canon pages come up as generic pages (without the text I input for you), you will have to type in "missing black ink" (without quotes), to see the material they have posted in this regard. You will find instructions there in regard to how to clean the print heads, etc., if that is necessary. However, I would definitely try another cartridge first, especially if you haven't had that much use on the printer, such that you think these other measures may be necessary.

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise thanks for rating FixYa!

Color ink runs out too fast


See this link. Type "print using black ink" in the Search box and click the Search button. Select the appropriate option for your computer's OS. Note that you can only do this using plain paper. (I think the printer will still use a little color ink when doing print head cleanings. If you leave the printer powered on all the time, this will reduce the number of print head cleanings.)

Canon i560 won't print black text anymore


I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

Prints black on test page, but not when a job is sent to the printer


make all your printer settings to default. If any problem in that simply uninstall & re-install the driver.

 

If still no good, your black cartridge might have dried-up
