The images seem to be light and not sharp when printing. Full Color seems to be ok

This is most likely to be an issue with the black cartridge as the colour prints OK. Do you have another one you could try?

Replaced cartridges

keep cleaning untill it starts to print clearly, you may reuse the same paper for that purpose, if you don't see any progress after 10 cleans, consider getting lasser printers, they are immune to print head drying and save alot of money on ink replacements. go with brother color or black and white series. I switched and don't have problems anymore

Hi, Just replaced colour and black ink cartidges ( both new not refills)in our pixma ip1500. We have done all the maintenance but it seems like no ink is coming through. Every print is very pale, and...

Do not throw it away. It has taken you so much cost ok?. Print blank can be caused by:
  • Purge unit is faulty cannot **** ink from ink cartridge
  • Print head is faulty
  • Logic board is faulty
In some cases short circuitry in print head can cause this problem. Please be careful of this. Replacing print head can damage new print head. I suggest you to bring the printer to nearest service center.

I hope this will be useful for you and please your rating
