Question about Canon Pixma iP6000D InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Photos are smearing - mostly green and yellow


I have the Canon PIXMA IP6000D injet photo printer. I don't think canon carries this model anymore. Worked great three days ago, I love the way it prints photos. I've did a deep cleaning, cleaned the nozzles, even tried printing from another application. But no luck.

This model is the little small photo printer. When I do a search on the internet it comes up with a $500 price tag. But I believe I paid less than $50 for it.

    I have had my pixma ip60000D for 4 years and have been very happy with the quality of the printing.

    But it has started printing faded colors, washed out. All the colors are full and when I print I always set it on high quality and also manual where I have the quality set on 12 and also the CPU(?) checked. This is the way I have always printed my cards and they have always turned out well.

    I ran a nozzle check and they are not clogged.

    Hope someone can help.

    I have had my printer for about five years now, and have had great results till two weeks ago.  I was trying to print black and white photos. I got two great photos but ever since then I get crappy black and white.  Most are either way to green, or way to purplish pink.  I have done all the cleaning programs on the printer and they still print awful.  Any ideas what needs to be done??
