Hey everyone !!!!! ;)


I have a canon i865 printer which I having been using for 6 years already :D

This few weeks I tried to print colored pictures of plain sheets of paper. The printer prints out dull yellow pictures with many lines which totally wasted my ink and time!!!!


I tried to maintain by using the maintanance software given in the canon printer which is to perform deep cleaning. However,the printer still prints out the same dull yellow color.


Hence, I suspected that the yellow ink was ruining it ( I have no idea lol -.-) so i changed a new one... However the results is still the same!!!! :D


What should I do?? Is it because that the printer is old and should be replaced??? Or can I replace something inside the printer


Many thanks :D

Six years for a cheap printer is actually pretty good. I'd replace it though. No matter what you do to it, it'll still be old. :D

PIXMA MP280 w/ PP-201
Why change if you had such good luck with a Canon why not get their newest and hopefully it will last you another 6 years. :D
69.99 USD is the estimated price.
