Printer prints the snow pink

The Canon Pixma 5000 is an excellent photo printer!
Check that ALL your ink cartridges have ink and also run a cleaning cycle as your heads may be dirty and also do an alignment run: check your manual for instructions.

Prints with a pink tinge

Have you tried cleaning the print heads using either regular or deep cleaning modes? You should be able to access this through the software options or on the printer itself. You might also manually clean the ink cartriges with a tissue.

I have a canon ip6700d and only want to use black ink - i only use it for printing documents. How do a set it for this? kind regards Steve

hi steve,
no setting for this. Usage of ink automatically defined by printer base on what you print. If you print black text printer will use black ink only. But colour ink may get low slowly since the printer perform cleaning each time you turn it on.

Prints all yellow, with some blue and black, no brown

the problem is very simple the magenta ink the cartridge is over or the head is been blocked from where the magenta ink comes out,
because red colour requires ---yellow plus magenta(pink)----to make it red.and ----dark yellow plus magenta(pink) -------- for brown colour.

Pink tinge to colored photos

Canon has a number of things you can check in their knowledgebase. Go here. Type "pink tint" in the search box and click Search. If you select the first item "tinted printing" you will get at least 21 things you can try (only 10 show up per screen).

Color printing

I removed the ink tanks then I removed the print head very carefully.
I rinsed the print head with the cleaner that comes with my refill
bottles, let it dry and carefully reinserted the print head. I "cleaned"
the nozzles and ran nozzle check and it worked fine.

I no longer trust this iP5000 printer for photos so I have purchased a new
Canon iP6700D which is great. I will use both printers...only using
the new one for photos only.

The main thing I have learned from my Canon printers is not to clean
the print heads as often due to that "Absorber almost full" message!
I still like the Canon for the ink capacity and separate tanks.

Your site has been so helpful! Thank you!
