Canon ip4200 one cartridge/nozzle does not work

Hi.

I have been having some problems with my yellow printer cartridge. It just doesn't work. So I bought a new one, thinking the old one might have been a bit dried up, installed it, and it still doesn't work. I've cleaned and deep cleaned many times, but still the nozzle check printout only shows a very very faint yellow line. All my printouts now are very red! I have come to the conclusion that the yellow printer nozzle is blocked, but what can I do about it? I don't want to have to buy a new printer for the sake of one cartridge problem.

Please help!

Many thanks in advance for your time.

The yellow cartridge shows a "?" when needs to


Hi,

According to your problem, first clear the cartridge head. Go to the Printer properties and clean the head. Check the nozzles and align the cartridges from same place. Clean the cartridge head 2-4 times. If it doesn't solve your problem then replace the cartridge.

Printer is saying more then one ink tanks of the same colour is installed. Yellow. Then it is saying it isn't recognising the yellow ink


Do you have all Genuine Canon Ink Jet Cartridges?
If you don't then that could be the problem.
Otherwise, if you do, then I would try another yellow ink jet cartridge from Canon.

Canon Pixma yellow color problem


Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

Canon iP4200 thinks it has two yellow ink catridges installed


I have had this happen a couple of times to me with a few cartridges so if you can be sure it's just the black that has changed then I'd contact your retailer and request a replacement under warranty.

The only other way to solve this is by process of elimination using some other cartridges. If you know of someone else with a similar printer model that uses the same cartridges then perhaps ask nicely :)

Canon PIXMA iP4200 won't print


I solved the problem (I hope more than temporarily) by going out and buying a new yellow ink cartridge. The new one seems to be working, but the cartridge that generated the error message was brand new, too - hardly a satisfactory outcome. I worked out that buying a new cartridge would be slightly cheaper than signing up for one of the Canon support plans. As you can guess, this experience does not augur well for me buying more Canon products in future.

Printing Problem


Look for ink clogged on the printer head. Run cleaning or deep cleaning after installing the new cartridge before printing. Take nozzle check print.
