Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

No Print My printer was working fine and all of a sudden it stopped printing. It continues to go thru the motions and noises and spits out paper, but no printing. I have checked and even replaced black cartridge just in case. What gives?

Re: No Print

Use a pencil eraser to carefully clean the electrical copper contacts in the body of the printer where the cartridge connects

Paper jams after printing 1/3 page. continue s to print on on wrinkled paper until file is totally printed

The rollers need cleaning. Office supply stores carry cleaning paper. It's sticky on both sides. Run it thru without printing on it. That should fix it.

How can identify if taht thing is a form of laser print not inkjet print?

First approximation - by weight :) Seriously :) Heavier will most likely be a laser printer :)

Apart from that, if the printer works, and when printing you hear something going back and forth inside, and the paper is going out gradually, it's an inkjet. If the printer gives a more-or-less continuous noise and the paper comes out after a while in one continuous, quick and smooth motion - it's a laser :)

Also if you open the covers, and find a big, bulky toner cartridge - it's a laser.

And the simplest to do - put the printer model name in Google and search for it's specifications :)

Deskjet 932C. Won't feed paper.

Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.

Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Printer not printing

Try this. Push the copy and cancel buttons together for about 3 seconds. Then release. The printer should push a blank piece of paper through. Try to print.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer

Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

Wants to print but won't put ink on paper

I'm experiencing the same problem. I tried to troubleshoot through software that came with printer, but no luck. Here's what happens:

The printer worked great for a month or so. Then, I didn't use it for a few months. When I tried to use it again, it acts like it's printing. My computer shows it's printing, the printer runs through all the steps, including moving the print cartridges back and forth over the paper as it should, but no ink comes out on paper.

Any suggestions?
