Question about Canon PIXMA iP3500 Printer

Black not printing, other colors fine, replaced cart and deep cleaned several times, no result

My Canon ip3500 is one year old and seen minimal use but now BLACK will not print, all other colors fine. I have tried replacing the cartridge and running both normal and deep cleaning proceedure several times with no result. @audiogeezer: Did this fix succeed? my black started missing every other line and (against my better judgement) I took out the print head (?) and noticed that around the black nozzle (?) there were two bunches of lint and dried ink built up. I carefully cleaned this off with a cotton swab and then put everything back together. Now the printer misses every line, ie, no black printing whatsoever. I tried to print about 100 pages, but no workee. I'm starting to dislike my canon printer.

Try wiping the print head with a soft damp cloth - it works for me.

My canon iP3500: Black print comes out patchily, despite many attempts at deep cleaning, Each time I deep clean, a couple of pages come out with the black print OK, then it goes patchy again.


It sounds to me like your cartridge nozzles are clogged. That's more common with recycled or refilled cartridges, but it can also happen with new cartridges if they are older. If you just purchased the cartridge you could try to return it. Otherwise, I would try to continue deep cleaning and nozzle checks until it starts to print. It takes a lot of ink, but sometimes that's the only way to get it to print. Usually it will work eventually. Do a nozzle check in between each cleaning and deep cleaning.

I have an 8-year old Canon i9100, and have just installed my third brand new Print Head. It worked fine for one month, then the black started fading and then just stopped printing. All the other colors...


It is probably a bad purge assembly, when it doesn't clean or prime the printhead properly you have the problems you are describing. There are 2 sections in the purge assembly, one cleans color and the other cleans the black. Sounds like the black pump is worn out. The part runs around $30.00

Canon Pixma IP3500 prints B&W with white streaks


as i can suggest you that it can be the problem of head clogged internally where you insert your black cartridge .and the other main cause is while you give a head cleaning command to get the cartridge cleaned it sucks or pulls  the ink from the cartridge in such a huge quantity that 3-4 cleanings make the cartridge totally empty .due to this the ink gets very low and the printouts come with streaks.many a times setting the print mode in best makes the copy perfect.but the printing gets too slow in that best mode.
