I am getting 5 flashing yellow lights. As far asI can tell from the manual it appears I will need a new print head. Can it be cleaned or is it done?


Yes, that is a printhead fail. Printheads are almost as expensive as a new printer for the Pixma iP4000. You can find the printhead on eBay, runs $50-$80. Better to put that money towards a newer printer. You can also look for scrapped or damaged i860, iP4000, MP780, MP760, MP750 model printers and salvage the printhead from those.

Driver installation progam says "print head needs alignment" but doesn't say how to do it.


Canon i860

Align printhead automatically:

1) Be sure that the printer is powered on and letter size plain white paper is loaded in the sheet feeder

2) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button, and release it when the Power lamp blinks four times.

The alignment pattern sheet should now be printed out. Wait for the pattern sheet to finish printing.

The printer should stop prompting you for this procedure.

Doesn't print black, even changed new cartridge


How long was the printer sitting not used? That ink is pigment based and is nasty when it dries out. The colors are dye based and do not have similar problems. It is likely the pigment has dried in your print head and clogged it. If print head cleanings are not fixing the problem, and you a confident in you abilities, you can disassemble the machine and pull the print head out. With it out you should let it rest for about 15-20 minutes on a paper towel soaked with warm (100 F) distilled water. CAUTION, ink will seep out of the print head, be sure to due this on something ink resistant, shop bench or plastic plate.

New printhead will only print 3eBK, no color


If you're concerned with a clogged printhead try to clean it with acetone solution. Also, check the cable connections to your printerheads they might be loosened..

I860 won't print properly


Buying a new printhead is a mighty good suggestion, it seems you have pretty well used up the maximum service life of your printhead, if i'm not mistaken. Try to reinstall your printer along with its software. Go to settings>control panel > remove hardware> then,reboot. After, rebooting, re-install your printer software and drivers.
