2. qtip (cotton ball on a small plastic stick) soaked in generic nail varnish remover {alcohol based)
3 cleaned print head where cartridge sits repeatedly until no more ink came off on the cotton wool
4. did a deep clean twice
printer then functioned properly

Colors not matching computer


It is possible your colour cartridge has cross contaminated the ink reservoirs. To check this take the colour cartridge out and turn it over to see the coloured pads. They should look red, dark blue, and orange ( the colours are actually Magenta, Cyan, and Yellow, but are concentrated). If any of the pads are pale or particularly green - change the cartridge.
If the colours look alright, your issue is probably that your monitor makes colour by emitting light frequencies so is bright, printed images make colour by absorbing light frequencies so will always be darker. There is always the issue of course that your monitor also has a colour "temperature" bias. Photo pros calibrate their monitors and printers to match.

> replaced the print head

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?

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan


I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.

Canon Pixma iP6600D - ink problems


Use original cartridges. Generic or refilled cartridges tend to cause these problems.

No 'clay' colour. canon pixma i 4200


I'm afrade I don't know what you mean by "Clay Colour".

For a Canon, usually you have Black, Magenta, Cyan and Yellow and you MAY have Photo Magenta and Photo Cyan depending on the machine.

Print out a test page and tell me what colour is missing from that page (compair it to the one in your owners manual or the driver).

Usually a missing colour is caused by a clogged head. Use the cleaning function over and over (try at least five times). If still not working, either the head is very badly clogged, has gone bad, or the purge unit is not working. Please make sure you are using OEM ink cartridges, as I have seen refill ink cause this exact problem.'

Try soaking the bottom of the head in water overnight (not the entire head, just the bottom part). If this does not work, you will either have to replace the head or disassemble and clean the purge unit. I'd start by cleaning the purge unit since it's free. If you're not sure, call your local service provider. They can test it using a known good head but it's likely not a free service.

Canon ip4200 colour magenta


the colors transfer to the printhead by gravity. the felt on the inktank must make intimate contact with the stainless steel filter in the printhead. I have a pixma ip 6000D that I had to replace the printhead inside of two years three times. the bubblejet circuitry in the printhead got burned out. New heads cost from $55 to over a hundred.
