    Had to replace the 3e BK on my iP4000 - now it will not print anything from the new cartridge. Done all the deep cleaning stuff but still not a trace!

  • babcia_62 Apr 20, 2009

    The 6BK black color not printing. Did cleaning and deep cleaning to no avail.

    I took out the plastic housing for the ink tanks and gently cleaned the silver looking discs; blotted out a lot of the black color.

    Tried the printer head alignmnet and all columns print except "L"

    Have cleaned and deep cleaned but cannot get any black at all. My tests have no grid at the top at all. Took both 6 and 3e cartridges out and blotted the ink pads with a cotton bud. Both appear to be okay. Help!

My canon PIXMA iP 4000 does'nt write out the colours, only black.


Use the Canon software to check the ink-levels in the COLOUR cartridge. If empty, replace it.

Use the Canon software to run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog any ink-jets that are not spraying ink onto the paper.

Why Does My Color Ink Run Out So Fast When I Am Printing In Gray Scale


When sending your print job to the printer, you need to be sure to select "black and white", otherwise your computer will use your color ink cartridges to produce your gray scale image/document.

Printer print blue instead of black


I have the same problem with my ip 5200, when printing a document in plain black.. I spoke to canon support and they suggested to save the .doc document as a txt file before printing. It works. Not too sure if this uses any colour ink to produce the black.

You can also set the printer on grayscale. However, the printer uses the colour ink to produce black.... hence printing in black & white becomes rather expensive.

If anyone has drivers to fix this problem please let me know...

Canon Pixma iP2000


try cleaning the print head as follows, otherwise a new print head.
OK, Canon will hate me for posting this.

1. Remove ink cartridges
2. Remove print head
3. go to sink or tub (stainless steel, not plastic type), pick up a roll of paper towel on the way.
4. Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
5. Run hot water until HOT!
6. Turn hot water back to a dribble.
7. Run the dribbling hot water through print head, be careful not to wet the gold contacts.
8.When water running through print head is clear, place print head on paper towel.
9. Repeat number 7 and 8 until no colour shows on paper towel.
10. Gently DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out with dry paper towel until dry.
11. I normally replace print head after drying, but you may wish to let it air dry overnight.
12. Replace print head in printer and install cartridges
13. Start printing.

I do this to all 4 of my Canon printers every 6 months or so.

If any colour fails to print after this process it means your print head probably needs replacing.

My printer won't print because there is more than one inktank of the same colour


There are 2 types of black cartridge, CLI-8Bk Black Ink Tank & PGI-5 Pigment Black Ink Tank. These must be installed in the correct order as below. Have you replaced a black cartridge & perhaps used a different type? Here is a link you can get more info from: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=11994
