Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer

2 Answers

Printing Problem My Canon PIXMA iP4000 printer has recently begun printing as if the ink jets are plugged or as if it is almost out of ink. After multiple cleanings, it has gotten worse. I have plenty of black ink, although the color cartridges are almost empty. The printing is darker at the beginning, although still not clear, but then steadily deteriorates.

    When printing multiple pages, it is printing a number of pages on the same page and therefore we can not read it properly. We have tried printing from different computers just to make sure its not a computer issue but it is happening from them all.

Cleaning cycles use ink. So it's no wonder it got worse, the ink level went down. Are you 100% sure that the black cart is full? they can give a wrong reading on occasion. what makes you think its full? Could be also that you need to replace the head- the part the cart fits into. generally they don't last more than 18 months.] Another possibility is that the black is indeed full, but dry. Put a wet sponge to the nozzle, see if it soaks up a decent amount of ink. Good luck

Tip

How to unclog a clogged print head on the Canon...


Using a cotton swap dip into some plain water and then drop a few drops of water onto the outlet of the ink cartridge [you will have to remove the ink cartridge and turn it upside down].

Also while the ink cartridge is still removed, drop a few drops of water onto the inlet orifice into which the ink goes. The orifice of the ink cartridge sits right on top of the inlet to the print head when the ink cartridge is fully installed.

After putting the water drops onto the ink cartridge and onto the inlet orifice of the print head, I did the 'clean' procedure as listed in the "Canon PIXMA iP4000 Properties" of the program on my PC. Then I did the deep clean procedure. After that I printed the print pattern and found that this technique worked quite well -- since before I had tried isopropyl alcohol which didn't work to unclogged these print heads.

When I had the blue print head get clogged [on my Canon iP4000 Pixma printer] and I tried this method. It worked immediately.

I hope it works for you too.

God be with you!

My canon PIXMA iP 4000 does'nt write out the colours, only black.


Use the Canon software to check the ink-levels in the COLOUR cartridge. If empty, replace it.

Use the Canon software to run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog any ink-jets that are not spraying ink onto the paper.

My canon pixma ip4000 has stopped printing. It is going through the motions but the paper is coming out blank with nothing on it.


Hi
If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.
Or possibly a faulty cartridge.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.

Good Luck!

how many times have you cleaned the printer heads? most of the time it can take up to 10 times before the ink will run clear again, the only problem is the amount of ink it uses to do the head cleaning
