    I have similar problem with my iP3000 it prints green (in different shades) instead of red, blue or greys

  • pthurston111 Jan 15, 2009

    my canon pixma 3000 does the same thing. When first printing a photo, its mostly green in color. I find that if I print several 2x3 photos (in various shades of green) it will eventually correct itself . However, I hate to waste the time and the ink to do so. I did a test pattern and it came out correctly. Would love to hear an answer to solve this problem!

I have a pixma too, they are getting old, but as long as they still work who cares?
Mine started to print green tinted pictures lately, now I'm searching boards and looking for the solution to that. I put in a service request to canon usa, but haven't heard from them yet, maybe never will.
Long Live PIXMA's !

It's a PRINTHEAD problem - open your printer and check the cartridge - it may be out of line. John

1. Clean your print head using denatured alcohol solvent which can be purchased from most hardware stores. If unavailable, use 91% Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol (first aid antiseptic) which is available for less than a dollar at most Walmart pharmacy departments.

*Warning: You may want to use a pair of latex exam gloves as this is a messy process and can stain your fingers.
Time necessary 45-50 minutes
Supplies needed:
Isopropyl Alcohol or denatured alcohol
paper towels
latex gloves
sink, bowls and or basin
can of compressed air
very small screw driver
tablespoon or baby bulb type syringe
warm water

PROCEDURE:
1. Lift print head from printer. It pulls out easily because it is held in with the same down lever that holds the cartridge in place.
2. Put two layers of paper towels in the bottom of a dish to protect sensitive sprayer heads.
3. Put enough solvent in dish to cover the screens on which the cartridges sit when in use.
4. Take the two small screws out that hold the white ceramic piece
5. Gently, pry the ceramic piece back and away , to reveal the underside (No need to pull away the glued points on the sides.)
6. Gently, move head up and down to slosh solvent around it the best as you can. Use a table spoon or syringe to pour solvent over all orifices in the print head, turning it upside down and then back a few times.
7. Use canned air with a plastic straw to blow into and through all orifices, alternately sloshing/swishing and pouring solvent over head (be careful not to touch any of the holes, screens, or sprayer heads with anything)
8. Empty dirty solvent from bowl and replace with paper towels and clean solvent. Soak for approx 10 minutes. Rinse again with clean solvent poured directly on all parts, letting solvent overrun and fall into dish or basin.
9. Gently shake the solvent off the head, take it outside and spray with compressed air into all orifices to clear out and help evaporate any remaining solvent. Let sit on a clean paper towel for approx 20 minutes. (There may be a little ink bleeding out of the head, but once it dries completely it does not present any problems.
10. Reinstall head, cartridges and it will print like a new printer.

SUGGESTION: For many years of problem free printing, keep a double set of ink cartridges, one set full at all times. Whenever a cartridge runs out of ink, replace it IMMEDIATELY, with a new one or a refilled one. This gives the print head no chance to dry out and create clogged heads. Routine maintenance of cleaning the heads every 24 months does wonders for keeping your printer in new condition.

Hope this helps. .

SOURCE: Cannon PIXMA iP3000 (Waste ink absorber full)

The waste ink absorber is a pair of pads at the edges of the ink carriage path near the bottom of the printer. Canon will sell you a new set to replace them if you want to d-i-y. Alternatively, you can just rinse the pads until the water runs clean once you open up the printer. Dry the pads well before reinstalling. You need to take the printer apart from the top and get under the ink carriage.

Once you reinstall the pads, you can reset the counter by:
Pixma IP3000
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.


I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(most inkjets waste ink counters are set to hit their fill point at the expected end-of-life of the printer. Additional failures may happen soon.)

You need to replace the ink absorber kit and to completely disassemble the printer to replace the absorber. Attempting to clean the ink absorber is not recommended. Self servicing the absorber can be a very messy operation. I would check with a Canon repair center to see what the cost to have the servicing done by a trained technician. In some cases, it is cheaper to replace the printer.

Cannon ip3000. light flashing green/orange and service error 6A00 coming up. What's wrong?


6A00 means the purge unit is stuck, it's the unit on the right that cleans the printhead. If you can see on the right, look for any paper scraps or things that don't belong. Otherwise it's a shop repair.

Installed printer will not print


I found a vista driver for a Pixma ip 2600 and downloaded it. My printer now works but the black ink doesn't. Don't know if it's a driver issue or otherwise. It might be worth a try for you. There are no available vista drivers for the ip3000.
