Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer
I saw black ink running out, I replaced it with new cartiridge.
but no ink,no words were printed out.I thought may be new cartridge
head was dried out due to long time storage. I drill a hole to let it
vent. Unfortunately, ink come out of cartridge and the contact point
wet with ink. I cleaned contact point. And replace with another
new cartridge. The problem is same. No black is printed out,
only come out with color words.
I uninstalled the program and re-installed the program with set up
CD. The problem is same. Please help.
Seems like the ink has dried in the print head or the control circuit to make the black ink print, is not working.
See my other post in the ip3000 section re. cleaning the print head and give that a go. I have got a print head doing that right now. If I can't ink to go thru the head thru either warm water washing - next step is to drop Video Head Cleaning fluid ( Iso Propyl achohol) onto the tiny screens on the print head to see if that will works its way through.
If you get ink coming thru the print head, and it still wont print black, then it may be an electronic problem. Other than cleaning the gold contacts on the back of the print head, there probably is not a lot more you can do other than look for a working secondhand pprinter - I love mine ( when its going)
