    I replaced all my cartridges and it just prints one blank page after another.  $60 is a lot to throw away to not solve this problem!  Arg!

Is it printing any color?

Printer printing blank. New ink cartridges.Clean and Deep Clean utilities done.


Hello, first unplug the the printer and take out the cartridges, first dab them on a wet paper towel until the ink start flowing, then take a q-tip dipped in alcohol and where u insert the cartridges, clean the print heads, replace the cartridges and power up. If that doesn't help it you have bad cartridges.

I have a PIXMA iP4300 and just want to use it for black and white document printing. My 'M' and 'C' color cartridges ran out a while ago and I disposed of them but didn't replace them...


Hello,
Most of the Canon printers form the PIXMA iP series block printing when one of the cartridges is empty. You have some options: 1) change the cartridges (with original or compatible) 2) buy a chip resetter and reset the empty cartridges chip so they can cheat the printer that they are full. This way you will clog the nozzles of your print head and the printer will become useless and won't print.
That's why I suggest you to but even cheap compatible cartridges and replace them.
Hope this helps. Alex

Having problem with my Canon iP4300 printer which is printing colour but not printing in black.....Please help me.


clean the electrical contacts of the black ink cartridge using a lint free cloth and also the inside of the printer.

this you can do, after unplugging the power cord.
now, plug the power and then insert the ink cartridge. And then check by doing a standalone copy.

If the copy is also blank, try with a new set of blank ink cartrdige.

Canon ip4300 color ink empty but I only want black


No, Canon does not have this facility. Also mostly greyscale is not light black but rather a mixcture of the 3 primary colours. You should have a reset/resume button on the printer - hold this in for a slow 5 seconds to de-activate ink warnings per cartridge that is giving alarms. Proceed carefully and only print text that is black so that the colour printheads do not burn out.

How do I direct my Canon ip4300 Printer to no longer print from the normal black 5BGBK cartridge (empty) but to print from the 8BK (full)


You can't because CLI-8Bk ink cartridge is use only for photo printing.For text, document or gray scale printing the printer use PGI-5Bk.You need to replace your empty PGI-5Bk.

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan


1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

three options to be checkout. 1)the cartridge ink is near to empty.if this is the case  get your cartridge refilled or replace it with new. 2)the head unit in which the cartridges r installed.in that head the holes from where the ink comes out may be blocked so it needs cleaning manually by removing the head. 3)or the third option the printout is set on draft mode .if this is the case go to printer properties and change that draft setting to normal mode printing.
