I just changed the ink cartridge on the above printer and now it won't print anything. I am using a canon cartridge and i replaced the print head about 2 months ago. The last cartridge worked fine. I'm sure I am putting it in correctly. Please help. Thanks

Check usb cable if they are installed firmly and correctly. Check proper voltage input though designed as Autovolt system.
Try plugging the usb cable on another free usb port or you may try another computer to check if your printer works.
See if there are blinking lights and error codes. You can google for its error codes.
Check flex cable continuity, maybe some rodents have eaten it.
Remove ink cartridge, turn the power off and clean cartridge contacts including the holder contacts, turn it on and return cartridges. You may try borrowing a working ink cartridge of the same type from a friend.

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.

Anything printed from our canon printer is showing a "striped" background. Have changed ink cartridges and have cleaned the printer head but still have the same problem


The stripes are generally caused by a blocked nozzle (or 2).
Remove the cartridges and then remove the print head from the printer.
Run the print head under some warm water for a few minutes - concentrating on the pit at the bottom where the ink comes out - all those coloured slots!. When the water runs clear. take some kitchen roll and dab the thing dry - don't rub. Make sure there is no water on the electrical contacts on the back and refit the print head into the printer and then the ink carts.
Try a couple of prints now. What happens?

I have refilled my main black ink cartridge on my canon pixma ip 3600, my printer won't acknowledge the refilled cartridge, is there anything I can do about this?


This is because the ink cartridges has a memory chip.It monitor ink levels.Press and hold the resume button for 5 seconds.This operation releases the function for detecting the remaining ink level of the above ink.The printer shows empty cartridges but it will printing.

Black won't print. Changed all ink cartridges,


It may need a new purge assembly, if it doesn't clean both sides properly either color or black will quit. You might try a new printhead first, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00

I want to print with black cartridge only but


The best option is to click on properties when you're going to print and select grayscale. I believe this uses mostly, if not all, black ink.

My best guess is that you are using after market inks or re-filling them yourself.  Without know what your are using for ink and what you have already tried it's hard to give you any advise. If you are using after market ink or refills I would guess you have a bubble of ink on the bottom of the nozzle plate on the bottom of the print head caused by leaky cartridges.  If there is a bubble of ink there the print head can't spray the ink through in and just continues to  add to the big blob of ink.  Try removing the ink cartridges and then the print head and see if the nozzle plate is clean and shiny or if it is got a lot of ink sitting on it.  If it does rinse the print head with hot running tap water both inside and out until the water runs clean.  Shake the print head several time to help extract the ink while rinsing.  Just pat the head dry and don't worry that it is still wet. Don't put it in the oven to dry like some "helpfull" people have advised. The rinse water won't hurt anything.  Run a clean out or two and normally you will be back in business. Hope this helps.
