I have the same problem. Just spent £50 on a new print head which did sod all. I suggest using an maintenance hammer then buying another printer.

Why won't my printer print purple?

Your Cannon printer is not the problem. You will get different print color depending on the paper you are using, For example you will get different print result if you print on color paper than on white paper and a different print if you print on photo paper. Another alternative is to lighten the tone of your purple. I don't know what your objective is and what project you're working on but I hope this might help.

You still have some clogged heads.Head cleaning once is sometimes not enough to clean your heads properly, especially if you are using 'compatible' ink cartridges. You need to clean your heads again, and possibly still again, until your test print pattern produces the correct colours.

Print quality poor

I think its a cartridge issue.
try to wipe the cartridge on a wet cloth and run a maintenance on it by printing a maintenance page..
go to your printer panel and select maintenance option and print a maintenance page ...if the problem still persist ..
you need to replace a new cartridge in order to get a good quality of print-outs..

Printer is producing too dark and purple shaded output. I believe this has to do with nozzle jet function but there is no information on how to reset the nozzles on the basis of the colour printout. It's...

Are you trying to print
1). photgraphs in colour
2). Photographs in B&W
2). plain text
In canon iP4000, you can do a Nozzle check by going to the maintenance.

Go to print anything from a word file or an excel file > in the print box > go to Properties> go to Maintenance.
Here you can do Cleaning, Deep Cleaning, Print head Alignment and Nozzle check.

If your Nozzle check matches the check pattern(this you will find once the Nozzle Check gives a print), then it possible that either the right paper is not put in or your master could be very dark. Alternatively you could reduce the print setting to Standard...

Let me know if the above solves your problem..if not we can do some more trouble shooting.

Colours are not true, grey is brown

You are getting leakage from one color cartridge to another. Do deep cleaning and run nozzle check. You may have been using non-Cannon inks. They can corrode the ink cartridge seats due to inferrior quality ink. You may need to replace the print head. Check out Cannon web site under this printer support. Print head is in the $50 neighborhood.
