Its a very tricky thing to do and suggest you either take your empty cartridge to a professional or buy a new cartridge. do not attempt to do a diy job if u do not know what ur doing. the wrong mixture can have catostrophic events.

Paper is not printing


Since you are asking about a Canon Pixma ip3500, I would guess that the ink cartridge(s) is/are dried out, empty, or clogged. Try swapping out with new, fresh Canon cartridges and see if that fixes the problem.

Also, be aware that it is extremely ill-advised to use only refilled or "compatible" cartridges all the time in the case of inkjet printers (of which the Pixma line of printers is an example). The reason being that the refilled and "compatible" cartridges use plain ink while the OEM cartridges use a mix of ink and lubricants so as to keep the ink delivery system functioning to peak efficiency and help to keep the system clear of clogs. Therefore, if you have recently put in a new cartridge but it is yet another refill, swap it out for a real Canon cartridge and then try using the "clean the printer" function to try to clear out the ink nozzles. If you don't feel comfortable doing this or you are unsure how to accomplish this task, get in touch with a local computer or printer repair shop and they will gladly resolve this for you.

Try this:

2. Press the OK button and the red stop button at the same time and hold for 8-10 seconds.
3. That is it. The printer should now be re-set.
Please comment back and let me know if this solution still works. J

My canon iP3500: Black print comes out patchily, despite many attempts at deep cleaning, Each time I deep clean, a couple of pages come out with the black print OK, then it goes patchy again.


It sounds to me like your cartridge nozzles are clogged. That's more common with recycled or refilled cartridges, but it can also happen with new cartridges if they are older. If you just purchased the cartridge you could try to return it. Otherwise, I would try to continue deep cleaning and nozzle checks until it starts to print. It takes a lot of ink, but sometimes that's the only way to get it to print. Usually it will work eventually. Do a nozzle check in between each cleaning and deep cleaning.

Canon ip3500 does not print black but colour ok ... whats up ... how to fix


1. this could be a clogged print head at the black cartridge. the head needs cleaning or the jets have clogged ports and cannot pass ink due to hardened ink.
This may require a print head replacement.
2.If you have recently place a new cartridge in the print slot check to see if you didn't leave the protective tape on the cartridge.

The light for the magenta cartridge on my iP3500 printer goes off


The cartridge, as well as all ink jet cartridges has a chip inside that tells it how much ink is in the cartridge. Your cartridge is LYING, except it prevents you from printing without all cartridges working. ( same for my 6 color epson ). You need to replace the cartridge. I get my cartridges at a yahoo store called Inks4less. They have good quality for cheap.

There was a study done, analizing the amount of inks left in inkjet cartridges when they indicated empty, and the range was 7% to 25% ink still left.

Canon Pixma IP3500 prints B&W with white streaks


as i can suggest you that it can be the problem of head clogged internally where you insert your black cartridge .and the other main cause is while you give a head cleaning command to get the cartridge cleaned it sucks or pulls  the ink from the cartridge in such a huge quantity that 3-4 cleanings make the cartridge totally empty .due to this the ink gets very low and the printouts come with streaks.many a times setting the print mode in best makes the copy perfect.but the printing gets too slow in that best mode.
