Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer
This problem occurs with colour printing only. I have tried changing the cartridges.
You may end up replacing the printhead as well; this, as with most inkjets, don't tolerate longer stand times without printing, the ink solidifies in the tiny jets and 'cleaning' doesn't help.
If you are adventurous and have too little to do, you can try cleaning the printhead using the detailed instructions found here:
Canon Printhead Rescue
I tried it, without success, gaining only little improvement in print quality and after buying two heads purportedly for my 4000 and getting 'Wrong printhead' emssages with both, I did my own research and found that the printheads first bought were in fact NOT for the 4000. I even tried an ultrasonic bath of some power without success. Ordering the right printhead (QY6-0049-00) which I found new on eBay solved the problem.

Put plain paper in the printer and try to clean the nozzles.
