    I have tried the cleaning cartridges to clean clogging but it did not work. Thanks.

    My 3eBK cartridge print results have blank horizontal lines throughout. You recommend putting Windex in the tank and then running the cleaning process. What is the "tank"? Thank you.

You may want to puschace and use a cleaning cartridge but positive results are not guaranteed. It depend how bad your print head is clogged.

The cost is about $5.

Google it (canon printer cleaning cartridge)

    I am afraid that you might need a new print head if the cleaning cartridge did not work.

    Please note that I did not purchase the cleaning cartridge instead I filled up my tank with Windex ( yes Windex) using a needle to fill the tank but then make sure to seal it using a glue or tape. My printer worked fine after I did 3 cleaning then 1 deep cleaning. Good luck.

    BTW are you using original canon ink because some people have issue not using the original canon ink. Mine is using none canon ink actually I am using edible ink ( The worst ink you can use to print and the best way to damage your print head fast but I must use it for my bakery shop).

    Good luck using Windex because it worked with me ( no joke).

The auto print head alignment prints ok. The Nozzle check from top to bottom prints as follows: 3eBK ok; 6C top half light blue - bottom half darker blue; 6C ok; 6M top half light pink - bottom half darker...


It sounds like your black (K) or Black/Yellow (KY) head needs to be replaced.
The problem appears to be in the top half of the black head.
Without knowing more (like what make/model the printer is) I can't help more than that.

I think I put in a wrong colored toner cartridge. Pages printing in wrong colors. Can't find a list of the cartridges I should be using.


The make and type of cartridge is generally given in the users handbook/manual provided with the printer. If you do not have that ,you can log on to Canon web site and then go to support. Select your printer model and you can find the the specification of cartridge to be used with your printer. The list of the cartridges is given below: BCI-3eBk Black ink tank, BCI-6Bk Black ink tank, BCI-6C Cyan ink tank, BCI-6M Magenta ink tank, BCI-6Y Yellow ink tank You can also go the this link and download the manual if you do not have the same http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip4000#Overview

Won't print black


If it's a Canon cartridge, make sure you remove the tape over the vent hole on top, try a couple of deep cleaning cycles, otherwise you need a new printhead, qy6-0049-000 around $40.00

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

6C, 6M, and 6Y tanks don't print


Maybe if you have access to another canon printer you could try the cartridges in that to prove if they are ok. Most of that series have those cartridges.

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..
