Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

The printer is printing blank sheet

My PIXMA iP3000 has stopped printing any text or images. When I send something to the printer and it prints a blank sheet. I replaced all the ink cartridges in the printer last week and it started working fine after some hiccup, when I send my document to the printer now, all I'm getting is blank sheet of paper.

Hello Shirelle,

Make sure there is nothing covering the jets on the cartridge. Also how long has it been laying around? it might have dried out, and/or expired. On new printers the cartridges have expirations and it will not use them after a certain amount of time. Also try a printer self cleaning and see if that does anything. If none of that works, it might be the printer. - Vincent

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge on my Canon Pixma IP3000 but it is not printing - absolutely blank. However the colour cartridges are printing fine. Any clues?


Assuming a windows computer ... go to the printers section, right click on the IP3000, click on propterties then the maintenance tab. Try cleaning or deep cleaning and then nozzle check.

Printer does not print documents. Model IP3000 pixma. Approx 3 years old, used in my classroom. Printer has been working well until this morning. This is a sudden failure. Performed all maintainence with...


I had this very same ongoing problem with my iP3000 and recently with my iX4000 but I refused to believe it was the printheads as the iP3000 would print cd/dvd discs without a problem. Colour on paper was always there even though I used Calidad tanks.

My solution, or more aptly, my workaround was to change the paper setting from Plain paper to Glossy paper but still using plain paper and low and behold, after nine months of test pages with only the Windows logo it stated printing black text again albeit slowly now. Same deal for the iX4000, it started printing black text on plain paper as well after 4 weeks when the problem first occurred

I also did all the maintenance rigmarole over and over etc...with no results. My printers are hooked up to two PC's, Vista and XP so maybe I eventually scrambled the printers barins or something, anyway I'm printing again.

Worth a try and nothing to lose

Printer feeds in 2 or 3 sheets of paper at a time and then jams


Dears eveenz,
It seems that paper feed roller of your printer is broken. This part is integrated in drive assy. You need to replace drive assy of the printer in order to feed the paper properly. I plan to discuss this topic at Inkjet Printer Forum since I cannot post image more than 150 kb here. Explanation with image will make you know more easily. Please send me your mail to ijxpert@gmail.com so I can contact you as soon as I finish my post there.
Please rate me when you find this answer be useful for you

The effecds like 'banding' very often this happens when the ink is running low.

When you say 'full color' do you mean at the 'best' [i.e. most ink used] setting or the you are printing the image on a full sheet of paper?

How do your images appear when you print small, say wallet sized, single image only on the page? draft mode? Gray scale?
