Ink blockage in Canon MP 600 printer

When printing one of the colours is not working. Have tried deep cleaning umpteen times. Have replaced all cartridges. I do recall a leaking cartridge which i believe may be linked.

Given that you may spend a considerably amount of time and money trying new cartridges, etc... it's probably best to invest in a new printhead (these are easily replaceable and considered consumables by Canon).

In the USA, purchasing from Canon directly is very cheap but elsewhere, like the UK it's prohibitively expensive so you may be better purchasing a refurbished iP4300 from the Canon Outlet dealer on ebay. This gets you a set of cartridges and compatible printhead for a lot less than just a printhead.

It is most likely a blockage in the print-head. Run a nozzle check to see if all the jets are firing cleanly. If there are colours missing or "scratchy" run a deep cleaning cycle. If that doesn't improve the nozzle check, remove the cartridges and then the print-head. Run the underside of the print-head under hot water from the tap for a moment. dry it with a paper towel and re-install the print-head and cartridges. Give a standard clean and re-try. If it still doesn't work, the print-head is probably dying.

Not printing in black and white from my mp 560

If the black ink injector is blocked by after market ink clogging or drying out of ink in the nozzles, get an eye dropper and put a few drops of ammonia on the ink pad below the ink cartridge. Do the deep clean from the printer control section in the software. If you do not have that feature delete and reload the printer driver from Canon.
You might have to do this on several days in succession. If the blockage is severe. It might not be repairable. If memory serves the ink holder, where the cartridges sit, is replaceable for worst case blockages or burned out injectors. You might get one cheap on Ebay. (Don't buy after market ink cartridges. They do not have the chip that sends information about the ink level to the printer. Without that feedback the printer can refuse to operate at all. )

I have one with stripped gears so all those parts work. The paper carriage will not advance to print in my old printer. But every thing else works.

> replaced the print head

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

Canon MP360 not printing

You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan

I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.

Color Printing Problem

Remove all ink cartridges and replace them securely in position.That may be the problem always.
Print nozzle check pattern.See for any missing patterns
Give a head cleaning
Again print nozzle check pattern.If it is ok leave it, other wise give a deep cleaning
  1. If the printed result does not improve even after doing print head deep cleaning, turn off the printer. Then, after 24 hours or later, do print head deep cleaning again. (After a given time interval, ink could dissolve itself, resulting in ink unclogging.)
  2. Atleast a multi colour( like your visiting card) page should be printed in a week time. other wise the ink may clog in the head.
