I have a Canon Pixma ip4300. I replaced the 5 PGBK (the large non-photo black) cartridge and I went to print. A piece of paper got jammed, so I pulled that out and since then, that brand new cartridge...

Hi I think you may find a very small bit of paper may jammed under the print head, try removing the cartridge and have a close inspection, it only takes a tiny piece to cause the problem cheers Terry

My Canon IP90 printer in printing blank paper

If the inkjet printer has not been used for some time, and the ink cartridges are full then the print head nozzles may be blocked. If running the maintenance nozzle cleaning does not clear the print head nozzles then the print head will need to be replaces.
NOTE - inkjet print heads are not cheap, it may be better to purchase a new injet printer.

Canon pixma ip4300 - magenta ink is recognized but not printing

Take the print head out of the machine and sit it in a saucer of very hot ( just off boil) water about 10mm deep for a minute. Take it out and sit in on a pad of paper towel to dry briefly before returning it and the cartridges into the machine. Give it a deep clean and try again. If still no good, the print head has probably had it.

Service error 6A00

Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Canon I960 inkjet printer color shifts

We are experiencing something simillar with our imagepress. As far as I know, every heavily used Canon (or used for a longer period of time) tends to skew colors towards magenta a little bit. We are dealing with it by reducing magenta in color balance menu for all jobs on the printer, but the result is never perfect (especially in grey where is needed perfect balance of colors).
