Canon pixma 3000 not printing magenta at all

Hi! i'm quite desperate about my problem, anyone who can help me should be declared genius. here's the thing: i installed my new color cartriges, after not using the printer for a year, and everything was perfect-o-rama, except for the magenta. it would not print it whatever i did. i executed a cleaning routine, then a deep cleaning routine, then test prints, everything, and still, no magenta ever came out. i tried printing an all-magenta picture, nothing, just white paper. help? pretty please help? :-s

    Same problem ... with a minor wrinkle. The test print shows magenta OK but when I print an image with plenty of red, it is obvious that magenta is not being applied...

    my test print shows black but black does not print in real life, its annoying coz i dont understand why the black prints in the test box!

    actually, i figured it out. turns out, the cartridges have a little thingamabob on their backs, kindof a breather. now when you tear off that plastic sticker in the first place, that releases a little airhole, that you can trace back to the inktank. probably, the path was jammed, so all i needed to do was take off most of the labeling on the cartridge, so that the tank could breathe. that's probably why it wouldn't work.

Canon pixma ip4300 - magenta ink is recognized but not printing


Take the print head out of the machine and sit it in a saucer of very hot ( just off boil) water about 10mm deep for a minute. Take it out and sit in on a pad of paper towel to dry briefly before returning it and the cartridges into the machine. Give it a deep clean and try again. If still no good, the print head has probably had it.

IP3000 blue would not print


More detail is helpful -
Have each of you tried the printhead cleaning routines Canon supplies?
If not, try them although if you print only infrequently, this probably won't help much.

You can find a detailed procedure for removing the printhead for cleaning that the machine itself couldn't manage with this link:

IP4000 won't print anything except magenta


Hi make sure that the cartridges are fully installed and that you have taken the packaging completely off. Failing that there are two possibilities.
1 Print cartridges faulty or refills
2 Faulty Print cartridge head.

Thanks hope this is of some help
