Question about Canon PIXMA IP5200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Incomplete Color Printing

I installed an IP5200R InkJet on an XP computer, and the install seemed to be fine. When I tried to print, I would get an error message and only a small portion of the document is printed out. The black and white printing is just fine. I reinstalled the driver many times to no avail. On other computers on the network there are no problems with this printer. What seems to the cause of this strange behavior?. Thank you for your help.

Printer will not print!

Didnt I just answer this question?

Your printer doesn't know what you are printing ... the color is empty ... so the printer is preventing what it thinks is an error ... because, as I said, it doesn't know what is coming. Replace the color cartridge andthings will be fine.

Installed all new ink cartridges and now poor printing results

Dear louis,
You have done right thing by cleaning the print head. If the print head still clogged after repeatedly cleaning, It seems that the print head need to be replace with new one. Make it sure by printing nozzle check pattern. Is it good or not?.

C3180 will not print as error occurs even when installed

Try printing a manual self-test page:

1. Press and hold Cancel on the control panel.
2. While holding Cancel, press Start Copy Color.

The self-test report prints, containing the serial number and service ID.

This should tell you if it is a problem with the unit itself, or with communication between the unit and your computer.
