My canon pixma ip4000 has stopped printing. It is going through the motions but the paper is coming out blank with nothing on it.

If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.
Or possibly a faulty cartridge.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.

Good Luck!

Magenta not working when printing colors

try to wipe it in a wet cloth to remove the clogs on the nozzle that avoid it from jetting...load again your catridge on the carrier or cartridge holder....
and run maintenance page on it ...go to your printer panel and select maintenance and then select clean print a maintenance page..or maybe your magenta has have a low ink condition..

thank you for using fixya..

good luck..

Color not coming out right when printed

In this case what i would request u to do is....... Take out both the catridges from the Printer......... Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be  dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the  catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10  Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel.......... U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same  way........
Now do the same procedure again.......... Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge................. Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a  Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper 
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer... Good Luck

IP4000 won't print anything except magenta

Hi make sure that the cartridges are fully installed and that you have taken the packaging completely off. Failing that there are two possibilities.
1 Print cartridges faulty or refills
2 Faulty Print cartridge head.

Thanks hope this is of some help

Problem with color quality - Canon PIXMA iP4000

i had this problem... its the ink! Check you are using magenta and NOT "photo magenta", and also that you are using "cyan" and NOT "PHOTO cyan"... basically photo cyan, photo magenta and photo yellow are not designed for the ip4000, if you check the smallprint on the box it does not list the ip4000.

This exact problem happened to me and it was driving me crazy. I think the "photo" versions of the inks are for printers that take two tanks of each colour, and the photo version is used for very subtle colours... so if you are ONLY using these inks, photos will appear washed out, yellow etc
