Apparently I was giventhe wrong information by the store clerk. If I had read the printed material carefully, I would have found i860 was included. Thanks for your response.

3e black cartridge not printing. Canon i860


Did you try another cartridge?

What can happen sometimes is that the print head can get blocked.
You can clean that by removing the print head from the printer. Do not touch the foil on the head or the print nozzles.

Boil some water, pour 1/4 of an inch (6mm) of water into a saucer, place the print nozzles in the water for a minute or so.

Take the print head out of the water and touch it on a paper towel to get the water off.

Reassemble the printer and see what happens...

Color not correct and lines in print


Have you tried the cleaning function? It is usually accessed via the Canon software that you would have loaded when you first installed it on your computer.

See Canon instructions:

If you don't use the printer regularly the ink can dry up block the 'very' small inkjet nozzles. Occasionally people have problems when using generic non-genuine ink cartridges, but I have much experince with re-filling Canon ink cartridges and they are much more user friendly then the durabrite ink cartridges used in Epson printers.

The same 4 bulk inks


The bad news: Canon does not make any new printers that use those ink tanks. Their line of new consumer printers is the PIXMA series. None of these printers uses the BCI-3 series of ink tanks. I am sorry for the bad news,.. The good news: I have personally been successful in finding used, operational printers for $1 to $5 from local thrift stores and for a little more at local "Recycled, Used, Computer" type of stores. You may even try craigslist and put out a wanted ad for the models below,... anyway I hope this helps you out.
Here is a list of models that use all of the BCI-3e series of Black and Color tanks
Color Printers: i550, s400, s450, s500, s520, s530d s600, s630, s630 Network, s750, all BJC-3000 Series
Multifunction Printers: MultiPass F30, MultiPass F50, MultiPass F60,MultiPass F80
Other Color Printers (partially compatable) i560 & i860 (only uses the BCI-3 black tanks,..but BCI-6 for colors)

Canon i860 used ink cartridge full error message


When the absorber is full, you need a shop to replace the absorber pads and reset the waste ink counter. In our shop the pads are $19.95 and the labor is $69.00. Sorry about the first stupid answer to your problem.

Large black ink tank is not being used by the printer.


The little cartridges are pigment for photo printing. The Large black cart is ink for plain paper (usually text) printing. If you select a photo paper in the print setup menu, you will use very little of the ink.
To check the function of the large cart print out a test sheet from the printer maintenance menu. You may need to run a head cleaning to get all the nozzles to work.

Photo print quality Canon i860


You might be running low on toner or ink. In this case check out the ink/toner capacity left. it might even be a faulty cartridge if bought new, or a faulty printer, but it doesn't sound like it.
