How do I change the waste ink absorber in a Canon i960 printer?


You will find the ink absorbers are at the bottom of the printer. The entire chassis has to be removed to access them. When changed you will need to reset the waste ink counter. Srri but as not a uk model I dont have that info.

When printing a photo, the colors are light and very poor quality. it seems to print a document in black and white ok . the model no. is 5250. I had a model 5300aio before this one and I had a constant...


This is one thing you may do.

Bring out the ink cartridge and apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you still have a good amount of ink in it and the nozzle is not blocked. If not blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nozzle is blocked. To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so that the nozzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nozzles, the procedure may be repeated over to get results.


Good luck and God bless!

I have a canon i960 printer. It won't print blue. All other colors work fine. I've replaced the ink, downloaded new drivers, run the clean print head utilities, both regular and deep cleaning. What do...


I would guess that the printhead is bad. Google cleaning printheads or get a new one. Sometimes , not always you can clean the printhead instead of replacing. (take out and clean by hand)

New ink tanks for I960 - pics have a green cast...head check indicates magenta and photo magenta not printing. Have already tried cleaning and deep cleaning????


This printer model has a print head seperate from the carts. Over time, the print head can become clogged. Try removing the print head assembly from the printer and dipping just the printhead (the silver thing on the bottom) into a shallow dish of just boiled water several times. Dry off, reinstall print head and carts and try again. My need to do a few times. This will get rid of any congealed ink on the print head. Otherwise, new printer, as the replacement print head is more expensive than a new printer. Canon kind of made these disposable. Can also try to inject water through the cartridge port when the printhead is out of the printer ( the hole where the cartridge goes into) with hot water as well...

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!

What is the best photo paper to use with a Canon i960 to achieve the same colors on the paper that I see on the screen?


This is a bit of a subjective question. What you think is best might not be agreed upon by others. Given that, you'll get the best results and the longest lasting photos using manufacturers ink cartridges (not refills) and premium photo paper. I tend to stick with the better known companies in this case- Kodak,etc. Others may disagree with me and say refills are just fine. The quality standards aren't as stringent for refill ink batches as new ink cartridges and stand a better chance of clogging the nozzles or having colors that aren't the same with each batch.

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
