You may running out of the colored ink.. just make sure you change it before it runs out.. make sure you buy a colored ink for Canon Pixma iP1600.. the cartridge of the colored ink of your printer has a number infront of it.. eg: Canon CI-41

    Just change the ink recommended by Canon.. dont buy any ink that is not recommended to your printer. for my experiece its better to use an original ink rather than the refillable one.. because the printer has its on ink processor.

Cannon IP4000 PIXMA - pink & green streaks


I've had the same problem with my ip4000, but the solution was to get a new print head. They can be quite costly, so I recommend the following:

1. Contact Cannon support and see if you can get them to send you a replacement. They sent me one free of charge, and didn't need an RMA for the old one, so it was hassle free.
2. You can always try to aggressively clean the head yourself by removing it and following some of the "home brew" procedures others have tried. However, you can damage the head further this way and it's only a last resort. Warm distilled water and a syringe was used by one person. When I tried this, it did not work at all, and I called Canon for the replacement anyway.

Canon Pixma iP6600D - ink problems


Use original cartridges. Generic or refilled cartridges tend to cause these problems.

Canon ip3000 Color problem


This is a frequent complaint and only high-end equipment provides the necessary tools to correct the differences between display and printed output.

If the output is otherwise pristine, you can't do much about it, although if there are clear defects (streaks, etc), you might try running the provided cleaning routine on the printhead.

If you play with the brightness and contrast controls of your monitor, you will see that these can influence the color and saturation of what you see and the printer is not capable of seeing the same thing as you.
