Re: photo printing

It is definite one cartridge is not running. You do one thing - 1. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Red. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
2. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Cyan. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
3. Write documents in MS-Word - select all - change the color to Yellow. Take print out. Check Printing is perfect or not.
I am sure when you changed the color to Cyan - it did not print Cyan or blank page you got.
So you must replace the Cyan cartridge or may be ink is not coming out through the passage. And first you have to check whether you have removed the plastic tape from the head of t he cartridge.

Printing colour is wrong, colours come out pink. Nozzle check indicates cyan colour is not printing. I have carried out cleaning, deep cleaning. I've cleaned the print head and finally just replaced the...

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

My blue is printing green How can I fix this?

Check you inks, this printer doesn't use photo magenta or photo cyan, you would replace them with plain magenta and cyan, and if you are using generic inks they might just be a bad color match of inks.

My cyan ink won't print. i have tried EVERYTHING.

The printer cannot use photo inks like Photo Cyan or Photo Magenta. Be sure to use "BCI-6 Cyan" in position 5 - farthest to the right.

Was printing photos all was ok then printer stoped printing black

There are 4 inks, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black. When the black runs out, you are left with sort of a dark purple or brown color.

Printer wont continue printing if ONE cartridge is empty

Sorry to say this, I had a Canon Pixma and it wouldn't print unless you replaced empty cartridge, although I did have some success for a while longer by pressing OK button?

Canon Pixma 9500 suddenly starts producing light prints

I'm not sure if this is possible with the 9500 (it won't be if the 9500 uses chipped cartridges)...

But have you installed the photo version of a Magenta or Cyan in the Non-phone cartridge... ie: PM instead of M, or PC instead of C.

It's a long shot as I don't know that particular models age, etc... but it's been done (by me included *blush*).

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

I've been doing a great deal of printing with very much left to do. All of a sudden, this afternoon, the prints are all coming out purple.

Most likely you ran out of ink. Canon uses separate cartridges for yellow, magenta and cyan.

Check your ink levels. If the ink is okay, your print heads might be the problem.

Good luck
