TS8260 - Good but something is missing

published

I am happy with the printer and the prints it produces. My concern is that this is the first Canon printer that I have bought that does not supply, as part of the setup, ICC printer profiles that can be used by software such as Photoshop or Lightroom to undertake colour management. I have exchanged many messages with Canon Support and all they can suggest is that I obtain, at my cost, 3rd party profiles or rely on the printer driver giving a good result. I find this a very backward step.

Purchased in August 2019 at Officeworks Physical store for $163.00.

My TS8260 printer is going through the motions of printing but the ink is not appearing on the paper! The trouble shooter says it can't find the fault? The ink tanks are fine?? Please help!

Basics first.
Are your cartridges empty? No, because the ink levels would be available to see in the app, or on the printer screen.
If you have recently changed cartridges, are the new ones properly clicked down into their housings?
Are you using conventional printing paper? ( Some plasticised paper is finicky about ink.)
Is the paper coming out of the printer, as if the job had finished normally, or is it simply making a lot of "printing" noise?
You may have already done this, but lift the scanner platen to expose the ink cartridge compartment, and check out the cartridges to see if anything looks amiss.
Check the software settings on your computer/laptop, to ensure you haven't requested reverse printing , (white on black, instead of black on white).
Check the document you are trying to print to see if it has any special instructions for the printer. ( go into the normal print dialogue for this document on your computer and check all the settings.)
If all else fails, uninstall the printer, reinstall the printer, and try again.

Thank you, it seems the ink had already run out! Even though the printer was still showing low ink levels... i changed the cartridge out and it works fine again. Thanks for your time. :-)

Why does my Canon Pixma TS 8260 use a lot of Ink ??

Are you printing black and white documents or graphics using colour settings?
Is your "paper" colour set to sepia or a shade or tint other than white? ( background colour can chew a lot of coloured ink.)
Are you still using the starter cartridges that came with the printer, because they are much smaller in capacity than regular cartidges and could make it look like you are using a lot of ink?
Without looking at your settings and the issues mentioned above your question is difficult to answer.
