Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Magenta Ink Streaking

Hi ya,
Got a canon pixma ip3000, never had any problems with it`s print quality etc.
However, recently when I try to print, the page starts off with magenta streaks through the width of the image for about 3/4 inch and then begins to fade out during the remaining of the printing.
This happens even after I have run a print head / nozzle clean / maintainace etc, and only at the beginning of a page.
I have tried maually adjusting the magenta`s ink flow but the problem remains (As well as not having enought magenta in the image so it comes out more bluey green overall)
Any help or advice would be appreciated!
Thanks

try to wipe it in a wet cloth to remove the clogs on the nozzle that avoid it from jetting...load again your catridge on the carrier or cartridge holder....
and run maintenance page on it ...go to your printer panel and select maintenance and then select clean printhead..to print a maintenance page..or maybe your magenta has have a low ink condition..

Poor print quality .... Canon Pixma MP140 ...


Paper quality does make a difference in the quality of print, but it's usually in the areas of blurriness and vibrance. If your prints are coming out faded, the quality for your prints might be set to 'economy', which doesn't use very much ink. If you have it set for 'quality' prints, I would try replacing the ink cartridges.

Pixma iP1500:new ink cartridges fitted but no Magenta


Take a look at the mounting point. They break very easily on this model. If not broke, try cleaning with a swab and inserting the cart again.

Printer not printing


Try a new tank, there are more and more people getting bad ink tanks. HOWEVER if it is a printer that has seperate heads you might have to change it.
