Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Canon Pixma ip4500 purchased Feb. 2008. It's been printing fine until last week when the colors got strange. The printed pattern check shows the first cyan bar seemingly ok, but the medium and light cyan bars are totally missing and the yellow is barely visible.
Cleaning and deep cleaning have had no effect. A new printhead is half the cost of a new printer. Is there anything else I can try before chucking this?
since you are ready to find a replacement if this doesn't work, you can try a few things by yourself.
see if the the jack connecting the printhead to the ink cartridge holders is intact(it is a source of many problems in these type of printers)
also. if there is too much heat emanating from the printer during use, its advisable to chuck it.
