Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Ink won't dry

My photoprinter (Canon i860) all of a sudden started printing pictures on which the ink won't dry. Even if I leave them overnight the ink is not drying. What's up?

    Thanks "z". We had already checked out all the paper possibilities - quality, wrong side, etc. Someone suggested something about the ink not being sealed by the right amount of heat????

Unless the problem coincides with a change in ink cartridge, my guess is an incompatibility between the ink and the paper. Could you have changed the paper you're printing on. If so, is the new paper of a different quality? If you're using coated (eg photo) paper, are you printing on the right side? Check the "paper quality" setting on the printer (or the software you're using to drive it) - it needs to match the specification of the stuff you're printing onto. Photo quality papers are capable of absorbing much more ink than plain paper (which is how you get the colour intensity). If the printer thinks it's using photo paper, it will throw out enough ink to get that colour build - leaving a sticky mess if what is really loaded is just plain paper. A.

For some reason Canon have removed manuals from their pages. Second one I have seen missing today. Here is a copy and shows connecting a camera. If your unknown phone has a USB, you can try it. This is the page of the manual that shows it.

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:

Have a look here:

and here:

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.

Cheers,
Steve

Print Head Alignment test produces only a blank page.

Yes head probably clogged. You can try cleaning head multiple times, I think this is a pigment ink machine, so get only these carts for it

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.

One color

yep, print head needs proper clean, here it is.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.
