Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a Canon MP500 and when I print color (could be green, reds, any colour), just cyan will be missing out of only a small part of the page. It will be the same part of the IMAGE (not same part of the page) no matter how you rotate the page layout in the print options. When I print a full page of 100% cyan, it comes out fine & no cyan is missing.
I have done all the alignments, deep cleans & had the print head cleaned & it's still happening! It's driving me crazy. Any ideas/suggestions would be gratefully received!
Common problem with this (and other) canon printers. I usually just lift the cover and lift the highlighted tank out and put it back in, sometimes I have to do that 2 or 3 times before it will let me print. If lifting that tank doesn't do it, try lifting all the tanks and putting them back. Eventually you will get a message that the tank you are refilling is empty (even if it's full). When that happens, press and hold the "stop/reset" button for 5 seconds (this is from Canon) then you will get a message that Canon will not be responsible for damage to the printer because you are using different ink than theirs (just ignore it). You can also try cleaning the contact points on both ink cartridge and on printer w/ cotton swab lightly dipped in alcohol.
