Refurbished Canon PC 160

Hi,

I purchased a refurbished Canon PC 160 desktop copier from ebay.  I ordered a compatible recycled toner cartridge from Re-Ink Inc. 

When I placed the toner in the machine and made a copy, a thick black "margin" approximately 3 -4 inches thick appears on the right side of the paper.  I removed the cartridge and cleaned out the inside of the machine (as best as possible) however I still am getting this black margin on my copies. 

Other than this, the copier works great.  I am wondering if it could be the toner cartridge.

Can you help me. 

Thanks!

Elizabeth

Instructions

1

Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.
2

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.
3

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.
4

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.
5

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.
6

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.
7

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.
8

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

How come my Canon ImageClass MF4122 printer gives fuzzy images?


That is best bet since it appears that your print head is fubar and Canon charges a fortune for them. Cheaper to get a new printer with warranty.

Canon pc 941 copier cartridge issues


Just to clarify, you are stating INK? The Canon PC941 uses an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Toner Cartridge. Canon toner cartridges for PC941 printer are supplies produced by the same manufacturer that makes given piece of equipment. Toner cartridges produced by Canon are called OEM. Remove the toner from the machine and then use cotton swabs and alcohol to clean around the roller wheels of all drawer areas. Be sure to unplug the equipment before attempting to clean the wheels.

Color printing


The printhead has either become too clogged to flush out with with the internal cleaning operation (which uses a LOT of ink), OR, the nozzles are not firing. If after several cleaning operations there is still no significant improvement, you will need to replace the print head. I see this frequently with Canon and Epson, and Brother inkjet printers. Usually, it is due to leaving the printer idle for too long, or removing a cartridge and not replacing it right away. The air gets to the residual puddle of ink in the head and dries it. Also, using compatible or refilled cartridges can risk clogging because the ink formula is not an exact copy of the genuine Canon formula. I recommend using only new Canon carts for replacement, and do not mix Canon with non-Canon carts.

You can find the replacement print head by Google searching "MP830 print head". Prices can vary from around $70 - $90. Changing it out is fairly simple. You only need to lift a lever that holds the head in place. Make certain that it is squarely seated, and then run a few pages of a color document, or do a couple of standard cleaning operations to "prime" the head.

Make sure the hed is NEW and not used or "refurbished". Here is one source on eBay that sells it for $78.00:

Canon mf 6540 copies come out uneven


Did you clean beneath copy glass ( adf copy glass and platen )?Did you clean scaner also?
Clean the laser unit.
Not genuine toner isnt best solution.

Try to print something.If the print is OK, then the problem is in copy glass and scaner.

Tried refurbished cartridge ( CL 41) on my Pixma 160. Get message that ink cartridge not compatible


i think your refurbished ink already has defects on the printhead. when this is the case, refurbished ink cant no longer be used even if you reset or refill it.

Ink blockage in Canon MP 600 printer


Given that you may spend a considerably amount of time and money trying new cartridges, etc... it's probably best to invest in a new printhead (these are easily replaceable and considered consumables by Canon).

In the USA, purchasing from Canon directly is very cheap but elsewhere, like the UK it's prohibitively expensive so you may be better purchasing a refurbished iP4300 from the Canon Outlet dealer on ebay. This gets you a set of cartridges and compatible printhead for a lot less than just a printhead.
