I've changed printer cartridges but it is not printing a thing. Not a test print, not print head alignment nothing. I've done the clean the deep clean print head alignment and there is still no ink coming...


Please check the seating of ink cartridge. when you replaced it, it should make a little click sound confirming that the ink cartridge has seated properly. Please repeat the process once more. Also when you remove the ink cartridge check if the thin strip on the ink pad has been removed. If not then remove it before fixing it again.

Red tinged and blurry pictures from hp 6380 printer


Try a head clean. This is usually accessed from the printer menu on the printer, or the properties in Windows. If this doesn't work you could have faulty cartridges. This can be common with refurbished/refilled cartridges.

My Pixma iP4500 is leaving faint lines on my prints particularly noticeable on areas of even tone like blue skies. I've done the deep clean and nozzle check but can't fix the problem.


Having same problems. Have done all the checks and cleaning etc. Rang Canon. Requires a new part that costs as much as the printer did initially! The printer is so new that I haven't even changed some of the cartridges yet, and others only twice. Old enough to be just out of warranty. Seems to be the best solution is to dump the printer and take my photos to a retail outlet to be printed. Won't be purchasing a printer from Canon again, that's for sure! What a massive rip off!

Faint rainbow line of blue/orange/yellow at end of printed photo


Hello,
You might try cleaning or unclogging the print head[s] with a drop of water or two onto the outlet from the print cartridge[s] and a drop of water or two onto the inlet orifice into which the outlet of the cartridge feeds the ink.

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

Printing too red


At this point I would offer that you bight the bullet and get a set of OEM Canon cartridges and do all the deep cleaning etc and see where that puts you. The third party cartridges may have caused some kind of problem, and not any "damage"

Magenta printing as yellow


Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!
