CANON Colour Printing Problem

  cptlaury 10:21 27 Jul 2005

I have a canon printer i865 and after the inital canon cartridges had run out, i only replaced the black cartridges with non manufacturer or alternative and cheaper cartridges.

Now, when i print out colour photos, it seems that the black or darker areas of the photos are faded and washed out, is this due to the replacement of the cheaper cartridges??

Previously i encountered no problems when i printed colour photos with the Canon cartridges

please advise and help!!!

Buy a Canon Black cartridge and put it in, if your print quality returns to normal after a couple of runs, you have solved the problem.

If not, try cleaning the heads, but my guess is that the 3rd party cartridge is not up to craik.
