Looking for the BEST Edible Image Printer - Page 2

post #16 of 72
Price... Call is so we can see what is going on. Make sure your silver label, that is above the gold label is pealed off.

cakerocket..the mp520? Are you sure? that is an older model printer. Good, but older. Stay away from HP, dont even know if you can get edible cartrdiges as the FDA cracked down on them as they were made from refurbished ink cartridges.

My advice, Canon all the way. Either the Canon mp560 or the canon ip3600. Both excellent choices.

I am very happy with my canon from Icing Images, the people at Icing Images have given me great customer service and the printer only gave me trouble once - I do not use it regularly enough and the printhead dried out/got ink stuck in it I used a shark steamer (strong jet of steam to clean it out as a last ditch effort) and it has worked like a charm since.

Are you telling me I can just buy a regular printer and swap the cartridges with edible ink ones?

I have a Canon IP3600. It has not worked right from the time I took it out of the box. The ink came out really bad with lines on my images and the black would not come out at all. I ran the printer cleaning several times and steamed the print head 4 times just to get it to print a few pages. I am not happy with it. I wonder if it is the ink. Has anyone else had problems with KopyKake ink?

Debbie, Thanks, the yellow now seems to be working ok. It's no longer printing as peach. After I got the peach color cleared up, some days it would print yellow and some days it wouldn't print a color at all. I finally removed the cartridge, held it over a sheet of paper and gently squeezed it. I then made sure to wipe off any excess ink that had come out and reinstalled the cartridge. So far it has been printing yellow every time I print and I haven't had any more problems. If it starts again I'll give you a call so that we can try to figure out the problem.

tiggy2, What I finally did was very carefully took the yellow cartridge out of the printer. Be careful not to squeeze it when taking it out. Then I just put a piece of printer paper under the cartridge and squeezed it on the sides gently until some ink came out. I wiped all of the excess ink off and put the cartridge back in the printer. So far so good. I'm hoping it continues. I don't know why that worked. Maybe the cartridge had a little air pocket? Just a guess. It was really strange that first it was coming out peach colored and then turned yellow but would sometimes print and sometimes wouldn't.

Is your problem with the yellow cartridge too? --- strange icon_confused.gif

I'm actually having problems with the red now. I'll try squeezing and see what happens, thanks.

I cannot find the ip3600 anywhere around here. Must be the Canadian Curse! I can however find the MP560 for $80 and the ip2700 for $60 (and the MP520 for $40 at WalMart)...all these models make me confused! So...i guess i will try my luck with the MP520 (the price says it all for me). That way if it turns out really crappy i won't be too upset with loosing $40!
