Canon ip3000 & ip4000 the heads get dirty.
if you keep doing cleanings and deep cleanings it will eventually cause an error because it thinks the tank is full.
take out the head - in the sink, with warm not hot water rinse out much ink as possible. then use windex, the ammonia removes the ink. flush good - shake out head, drops will form on the bottom. keep doing it until drops are clear. rinse with water. shake out well. dry contacts.
I use a water pic as a pressure washer to force water thru. replace head and tanks.
do not use clean, instead print a page of 'X's
make every 5 rows a different color. this way you can see what is working and it won't fill up the cleaning tank, causing a code error.
you can use any ink you want as long as it is the proper type- don't have to be canon

Power on / off


Hi,
I'm thinking from what little info you've posted, that you are running your Laptop with a generic, rather than the recommended power adapter. If this is so, naughty you. When it comes to PC's and Laptops, always use the recommended power adapter, else you may cause your PC/Laptop to die a slow and horrible death.

I hope this answers your query.

Cheers,
Peter

My canon pixma ip3000 will not print in black ink


Hi There


Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

try putting back in your old cartridge, If it works it means your new cartridge is defective or is not an original cartridge.. Newer printers have an upgrade in the firmware to detect Generic compatable cartridges or refilled cartridges and they claim the fail safe is to prevent damages to your printer.

Hi
Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
