If you go to there is a link to a free downloadable pdf Canon service manual that should solve your problem.

Unfortunately, although it claims to offer comprehensive dismantling instructions, it doesn't and it couldn't solve my problem. I am trying to replace the waste ink pad in the base. I've succeeded in removing the top casing and have the printer open. I'm now trying to find which specific screws need undoing, out of the many visible, in order to be able to detach the entire printer engine from the base tray. I don't want to undo unneccessary ones and cause more problems than I'm trying to solve !

Go to this link; and select i9950 under "select model" there is a lot of technical information there, but no true technical manual. Contact them through the site and they will tell you where to get a manual - for technical manuals you sometimes have to pay, but not too much i think. I hope this helps :) Jangan ten shen lah salam

Canon i9950 colour deterioration

You can try changing cartridge but that would help little since the print head on canon printers are on the printer itself. Although you can give it a shot first since that would definitely be the cheaper option.

Canon i9950 feed issues

  1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
  2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
  3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
  4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
  5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
  6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
  7. Turn the printer off.
  8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
  9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
