Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer
Replaced all ink cartridges. Did print head cleaning, checked nozzle pattern; cyan did not print. Ran deep cleaning, checked nozzle pattern, magenta did not print. Ran cleaning again; magenta printed but no cyan. Let it rest 24 hours, ran deep cleaning, then it printed cyan but no magenta. Waited a while and now it is back to magenta but no cyan. Very strange.
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.
