SOURCE: the pgbk on the Nozzle Check Pattern doesn't print

It means you either need a new printhead, QY6-0061-000, or the purge assembly is worn out and not cleaning or priming the black properly. You can change the printhead but the purge assembly is a shop repair.

SOURCE: The PGBK cartridge doesn't print anything

Do a selftest on the printer. If the Selftest prints out something, uninstall the printer Driver and reinstall it again. If it still did not work checkin the printer to a qualified technican to have a look at it.

SOURCE: canon IP4300 flashes orange and green

Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.

Canon PIXMA iP4200 not printing PGBK properly - only printing top 50% of PGBK grid on test page.


Man you did some awesome troubleshooting! I don't know, but it sounds like something is physically wrong with internal electronics. I'd call in the big dogs at Canon themselves.

Why wont the head alignment work?


If the inks will not come out the alignment fails. Have you tried a deep clean? If that does not solve your problem
You can try and soak the head in one oz. ammonia and 8 oz. of hot water. Preferably distilled or spring water. Make sure it covers the nozzles and ink intake ports. Let it soak for 30-45 minutes.
Completely dry the head and contacts being careful of the nozzles
.Maybe let it sit for an extra few minutes
Do a deep clean after installed and if it now does a nozzle check be sure to put paper in the top tray and do an alignment.
If this does not work you may need a print head which I can supply.
Thankls for using Fix-Ya

Hello,
one idea is that you rouined printhead with tap water and second idea is to buy new print head or printer.
Note: If you want to replace ink head, be sure to replace purge unit and ink absorber also.

Suddenly stopped printing in black though colour is OK.I've tried all the usual things!


the ink head is probably jammed with dry ink. wihen the head is jammed, a lot of ink will pool at the bottom right of the printer. clean that pool, and dab the black ink head with a damp paper towel, but do not rub. blow the ink head with a can of compressed air. run a nozzle cleaning, and nozzle check until the printer is printing better. the nozzle check prints out grid for each color. if the grid is complete the printer is fine. sometimes a few horizontal bars will be missing and cannot be cleaned.

How do I direct my Canon ip4300 Printer to no longer print from the normal black 5BGBK cartridge (empty) but to print from the 8BK (full)


You can't because CLI-8Bk ink cartridge is use only for photo printing.For text, document or gray scale printing the printer use PGI-5Bk.You need to replace your empty PGI-5Bk.
