Question about Canon i 470D InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Won't print I have a Canon I470D inkjet printer. The printer goes through all the moves, but no ink hits the paper. I have replaced both ink cartridges, replaced the print head, reloaded software, driver, powered both the printer and computer down and still does not print.I have a suspicion that the ribbon cable is bad, is this possible?

    I know enough to change paper, I tried several different types. I do not see how paper will cause the printer not to work. This information was not what I expected and was disappointing.

    I have replaced both ink cartridges, print head, uninstalled and reinstalled program and still no ink from my i470D.

    What gives?

    Canon i 470D printer has been working very well for some time. I have not used it about 6 months; went to print and printer goes through all the motions, but nothing prints. Re-seated print cartridges and can see on the bottomes that there is ink in them. Performed printer head maintenance and that did not help either. It seems like the printer head is no longer coming in contact with the paper. Adjusting lever on top of the mechanism that holds the printer cartridges did not help either.



    It bugs me when you don't touch something, it breaks! Any advice? JAF

    I've got the same problem! The ink does not hit the paper though I've replaced both ink cartridges with new ones. Could someone please advise? I've been using it regularly and the last time I printed something out was last week.



    Thanks - Nanz

My Canon Pixma MX882 is not printing though lots of ink. Paper goes through when I press print on my PC but nothing is printed


Print a test sheet to see if the printer is OK. If tthe sheet prints fine has this printer worked on this computer before? Did you change anything or update anything? You may have the wrong driver installed or the cable could be defective if it has worked before.

Code 6A00 is comming up whenever I try to print. kindly advise me how to solve


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.As a Canon technology,I usually find the code almost 90% of the time it is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move.Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper,paper clips,push pins,screws,cookie crisp,flower bud pods etc.
I have found all those things in a purge unit.The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.A
Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel.
Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model & its always a paper path error or purge unit
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit,called a spittoon assembly in an HP,lexmark & other ink jet printers,is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.That is why you 'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow

The printhead moves and it sounds loke it is printing but the paper is blank?


A few possibilities:

1. out of ink -- replace the ink-cartridge

2. clogged ink-jets -- run the "print-head-cleaning" utility.

3. messed-up electronics inside the printer -- buy a new printer.

Canon BJC 4400 won't put ink on the paper


You need a new printhead, BC-21E, they wear out and plug with ink and the only repair is to replace the printhead.

Service error 6A00


It looks like the print carriage was stuck. Turn on off the printer, manually move the ink cartridge back and forth a few times, look underneath for dirt or small piece of paper (usually happens when you have jammed paper) or use a blower to clean any foreign objects.

Canon i470D Waste Ink Tank is Completely Full. How Do I Clean It?


There is a cleaning solution sold on E-bay for Cannon i470D print heads.
Or you can try a little ammonia. I used a cap full of ammonia in each side of the print head where the ink tanks go.
Put the print head in a can and let it set in the ammonia for 5-15 minutes then blot dry with paper towels and let stand until dry.
Then run the maint routines for the print head found under properties/maintance.
