20 Most Recent Canon i9900 InkJet Photo Printer Questions & Answers

Try using some rubbing alcohol on a Q-tip on the rubber rollers and see if there is any fine dust or crud on them. They could be dirty and one side has better traction than the other. Otherwise I'd have to say it IS an alignment problem. A screw may have come loose. Hopefully it wasn't dropped or slammed. Good luck.

That issue usually indicates a bad printhead. I had to fix a lot of i9900 printers, and after cleaning the printhead there still was no change. Other models do that too when the printhead starts going out. This is an expensive printhead, but easy to replace, as you know. Link below to some options:

The best option for this is to attach the printer via USB to a Network Printer Hub.
Printer Hubs attach to the network through wireless and convert the printer to be available through that network to any PC.
Some routers also act as a Printer Hub, if you are happy to have your printer located beside the router.
Look in Google for Printer Hubs for more details and local availability.

Are you looking at the blinking lights under the cartridges? I presume you have replaced them with new ones? When ink is low it lets you print with warnings, but when the cartridge is empty it will stop you printing all together to prevent you damaging the machine.

Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Your printer should be serviced in a shop, The Canon spec's tell us where and what lubricant to use, and how much.

disconnect your battery. the air bag is powered by it. once disconnected you can punch your air bag sensors as hard as you want and it wont do a thing. I wouldn't advise this tho, as when you plug in you battery you air bag might pop right out at you. AND ITS REALLY LOUD. so as long as your careful you don't even have to touch the air bag. the air bags are set off by sensors. usually in the front by the bumber or side panels. so impact on the front end would casue them to go off. even if you punch a steering wheel the air bag will not go off because it only goes off when impact is detected at the front. or back. they are underneath your cars skin. so you are as safe as a baby kangaroo.

Hey there,
You have one or two clogged lines. The result is not caused by the colour you are seeing, but the ones you are not..
Look in your printer settings on your computer and you should find a nozzle check option which will print a page with different colour lines. the colour that is missing is the culprit.
Do a head cleaning function, and leave overnight. try again in the morning. The next step if required is to take small piece of cloth, soaked lightly with windex, and place in the small seating area for the print head, where it reside when it is not printing. Again leave overnight and remove the next day. Try again and repeat above mentioned steps if required. Have patience. It may take several attempts to fully clear. There is also the problem of a bad cartridge. You may need to replace the cartridge with a fresh one if problem persists.

Hi! Yes it may have. Please try this, unplug the unit from power source and long press the power button for 10secs. while the unit is unplugged. Plug the printer to power source then turn it on and see how it goes, this should reset the printer's system. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Check the mains input voltage on the printer. If it is 110v then you need a step down transformer 240v to 110v.

There's a new power supply available at http://www.beckscrs.com/partlist.php for $61.20, part #QK1-0311-000 or at http://www.vancebaldwin.com/products/?CAN&start=1601 for $60.70. The original power supply shows part number Canon K30212 on it. If replacing the power supply/adapter doesn't resolve the problem of the Canon i9900 not powering on at all, the part number for the logic board is QM2-1273-000 from Beckscrs.com for $225.
