Dont know how to remove the ink cartridges from Canon iP4600

Bought and installed Canon iP4600 printer but cant get the printer head aligned and test sheet of paper wont feed in. Thought i must not have put the ink cartridges in correctly but i can't get them out again...they wont budge! How do i get them out.The ink cartridge carriage doesnt move the whole way across, it seems to stick and stays over to the right hand side only and makes kind of groaning noises as if it should be moving but can't.

Managed to get the ink cartridges out and put them back in again.It was vert tricky to get them out.They have to be pushed out from the top of each cartridge first. I got a work colleague to do it for me and he agreed it was very awkward to do compared to other printers.

Problem pixma ip 4600.

Cleaning ink cartridges takes up a lot of ink. So, you may be out of ink in the respective ink jet cartridges that supply ink for the colors which are missing. Try new ink cartridges.

I'd like to clean my Canon ip4600 so as to store it for future use. Can this be done please?

If you are not going to use the printer for a number of months, you will need to clear the printhead of ink. Remove the ink cartridges and stretch electrician's plastic electrical tape to seal the ink outlet. Put the ink cartridges in a zip lock plastic bag for storage
Remove the ink cartridge carrier clean with warm water and put in a zip lock plastic bag for storage.
Remove the printhead and soak the printhead, printhead down in warm distilled water overnight. After the printhead has soaked, replace the water with another warm distilled water bath and soak for a couple of hours. This should clear the ink from the printheads. Let the printhead dry and one it is dry, store it in a zip lock plastic bag.
Clean your printer with a damp cloth and wrap it in a plastic bag along with your installation disk and installation instructions.
Your printer and components are now ready to be stored.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Please check the seating of ink cartridge. when you replaced it, it should make a little click sound confirming that the ink cartridge has seated properly. Please repeat the process once more. Also when you remove the ink cartridge check if the thin strip on the ink pad has been removed. If not then remove it before fixing it again.

Photos print with a faint 'pinstripe' effect

that could be head alignment (most noticible on low quality settings .. there is a procedure for aligning the heads ... or it could be clogged nozzles
to check these things start to print something
then select preferences .. then maintainence then
you have a choice .. nozzle check should be done first .. if all nozzles are working then go to "head alignment" and follow instructions there .. if some nozzles are not working then run the "cleaning" utility . sometimes it needs to do that several times .. if you cant get all nozzles working then you can try "deep cleaning" that uses lots of ink so you dont want to do that often ... if that doesnt work then you need new heads .. the heads in many pixma printers are easily replacable but costly ..
if all the nozzles are working and head alignment was done but you still have faint lines then try "high quality mode" .. in that mode you should not see any lines ..

Canon PIXMA iP4600 - error 6A80

Hello someone else here had this problem, this is what he posted: "Same problem with a Canon MP540 fresh from the box. Turned out to be the print head unit was not returning fully to the home position ie extreme right. My Fix : When the scanning unit cover is raised the print head unit moves left for access, look in the vacated area to the right, in particular the small black sponge where the head normally parks. I found a small spring jammed in beside the sponge, removed it and all is well. Don't know what the spring was meant to do but everything is working fine without it.On the MP540 the head unit now glows red, presumably meaning all is well... "

Canon S530D-Have cleaned nozzles,changed ink tanks ,no printing of any sort

No I haven't fix the problem. However I've been doing all the cleaning,cleaning and more cleaning. I finally gave myself a x'mas present. I bought a new printhead for the S530D. It's working perfectly now. I was tossing whether to get a new IP4600 or a new head, finally decided on the latter. Simply I can't get after market cartridges for the IP4600. The cartridges for the IP were way too expensive at this moment and not knowing whether the claims for the print numbers are accurate. Perhaps readers may be able to collaborate the claims for the IP4600 or IP4500.
Regards and seasons greetings & a happy new year 2009,
