Canon Pixma ip4200 printing red

I have a year old Canon Pixma ip4200. I've used compatible ink cartridges and a month ago everything was printing out with a strong red tint to it. I dialed back the settings to tone down the red and it hasn't made any difference. I got a brand new Canon ink cartridge and it's still having the same problem. Anything with any color, no matter what program, just comes out with a red tint. Any ideas?

Ink has run out message


Ink not made for your printer has risks. 20 years as Canon rep taught me this. Yields: are affected by resolution, type of paper, condition of print head, condition of ink jets, all ink jets and lasers are mfg'd under lisence to Canon. You have the best! Anytime supplies are cheaper, something is left out. used cartridges usualy leak air and drip ink ck for stains under print head. cartridge has used blotter also drips. Cheaper cartridges contain less ink, no free lunch. Fill it yourself 1 or 2 times and do it right. Put the printer in your shower for twenty minutes if you see excess leaked ink. Allow to air dry for a few days then install new cartridges. Run all the Nozzle checks and print head utilities. Touch nothing else on the inside. This will fix it or f@#%k it up for good

Black ink cartridge


Are you using original Cartridge or a compatible one? One possibility is you didn't remove the sticker on the top which covers the air hole., please run a cleaning cycle from your pc before printing and take a nozzle check print.

Photo printing problems


Try to manually clean the printer head. Take a cotton cloth and dab a little bit of alcohol (like whiskey) and then clean the printer head & the cartridges with it. Do remember it is a delicate process and if you messup, you might damage the printer/cartridges. So be careful & lemme know the result.

Red colour prints brown


Just replace the non genuine inks with proper Canon ones and then do about 4 full cleans, that should fix it. If not you will have to replace the printhead, which is usually caused by using non genuine ink. Good luck

Cyan cartridge


My IP4200 started doing this about a week ago it tells me I have two Cyan cartridges. I don't, cartridges are canon cartridges and were changed four months ago worked fine until now. Pressing the middle button the resume button is working eventually, so far, but I don't know for how long. Seems like a hardware problem as I deleted and reinstalled the software no difference and everything worked fine for the first four months.
