Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer
Printer was working fine until yesterday. All of my photos are printing with a heavy yellow tone -- this is making all of the colors in the photo looked washed out. I went through all of the cleaning options and nothing has worked. Any ideas? Thanks!
I had this problem... its the ink! Check you are using magenta and NOT "photo magenta", and also that you are using "cyan" and NOT "PHOTO cyan"... basically photo cyan, photo magenta and photo yellow are not designed for the ip4000, if you check the smallprint on the box it does not list the ip4000.
This exact problem happened to me and it was driving me crazy. I think the "photo" versions of the inks are for printers that take two tanks of each colour, and the photo version is used for very subtle colours... so if you are ONLY using these inks, photos will appear washed out, yellow etc

If you print a test pattern, do all the colors show clearly? It sounds like the cyan and magenta may be running low which means that the ink in general is low and needs replacing. If the colors come out normal during the test, it could be the USB cable itself. Although it seems to connect, a faulty USB cable or port may not be functioning properly. Try another port and a new cable if you have all colors.
