Question about Canon PIXMA iP5300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

The black cartridge (BK) does not seem to work

Color photos lack the black color.

Cleaned the nozzles 3x, deep cleaned 1x, which consumed a lot of ink in the BK, and it looks worse than before.

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Our Mp760 just decided it would stop printing. It will still run as if printing but there is no ink. We changed the ink cartridges and still no luck. A few of the items on the page print if they are color...


Are you using OEM cartridges or aftermarket/reloaded cartridges. Your problem sounds like the nozzles are clogged and need to be deep cleaned. To perform this you need to put in new OEM cartridges and run the deep cleaning (at least 3x) and the alignment utility. This should clear the clogged nozzles.
Aftermarket/refilled cartridges do not always meet the manufacturer's specifications for quality. If you want to try a good source for aftermarket cartridges, try cartridges from LDproducts.com for your printer. I've never had a problem with their aftermarket cartridges.
Please rate this solution. Thanks.

I got both color and black ink full and it only print in pink


The nozzles are clogged.
If you cannot clear the problem by running the deep cleaning utility, try inserting new OEM cartridges and running the deep cleaning utility (at least 3x) and the alignment program. This should clear the problem.
Aftermarket or reloaded cartridges often do not meet minimum manufacturer's specs. You need to be careful about using aftermarket cartridges or reload inks since they may not alway meet minimum standards and may gum up the nozzles.
Let me know if this works for you. Thanks.

If you installed new cartridges in teh color slot and it will not print from the computer in color, go into the printer setup menu, a button on the printer should take you here, and print an alignment page. If this fails to print correctly, select to perform a deep cleaning. This will use a lot of ink but will insure your nozzles are working correctly. If nothing prints or the color still isn't correct you will need to either manually clean the nozzles or have someone clean them. To be honest, depending on the cost of the printer it maybe more cost effective just to get a new printer than to have your manually cleaned. As inexpensive and printers are today I don't even replace cartridges anymore except for the black one. When the color runs out I get a new printer. The printer runs 35 to 39 dollars the color cartridge runs 35 to 37 dollars. But I don't do a lot of color printing. It is a choice the individual has to make.

Epson Stylus Photo R800 Print Head Nozzles ??


Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk

3e Black cartridge won't print


I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)

Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).

Hope that helped..

Have a look at the yellow cartridge. I have had trouble with inks leaking into each other...most noticeable in the yellow. I have no solution...perhaps the printhead is a piece of ****...works well when it works.
