Hey guys, I found an older post here that seemed to go through all the reasons this could happen but with no solution. I have a cannon pixma, it was printing fine and the oem black cartridge ran out. I replaced it with a cannon xl cartridge and now the ink seems powdery. I was printing just a half hour earlier, same inkjet instant dry photo paper. Thought maybe the new ink was defective so exchanged it for another and same issue. Dosnt seem to be a problem printing on regular paper though. If cannon dosnt have a solution I may have to try some matte paper, but theres no reason why this paper shouldnt still work.... Any one else had a similar problem?

You mean it's actually laying down dry POWDER? Or do you mean it "Looks" powdery.

Please clarify.
