Question about Canon PIXMA iP1500 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Im so confused

I have the Canon Pixma iP1500 and it just won't print out pink. Every other color prints out fine. I have new cartridges and have deep cleaned the heads several times. I even took out the cartridge to clean the head manually but to no avail. If anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Canon Pixma ip1500, bought new ink, cleaned print heads with alcohol, still not printing

Did you buy factory new Canon cartridges or third party cartridges.

If you are using factory new Canon ink, call Canon about their defective ink.

If you are using anything else, want to bet there is no such thing as a warranty.

I bought new ink black and color but i try to print in pink and i can't how can i print in pink

Hi alexgallo01
Do you get other colours except pink?
If that is the case,reasons could be:
1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge.
2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print.
If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font.
Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color.
Hope this will help.
If it help you, please give a rating

I have the same problem.  At first I thought the printhead clogged but dipping it in solvent did not work.  I guess the only thing we could do is to buy a new print head, but at the cost it's going at, we might as well get a new printer.  Other than that try sent a RMA.
