Open Question

Canon MP600 blocked print head

I Have slight streaking on the cyan colour, tried many time to clean it with the utility and then fill one cart with cleaning fluid but still no go.
Have you any suggestions and do you know if canon can supply new print heads? if all else fails.
Thanks in advance

SOURCE: Colours stopped printing one by one - Epson R220

try a damp tissue on the bottom of the cartridge as there could be some ink dried up on there preventing the flow. ear buds work well to.

My MP600 will not print documents. It will print a scanned document i.e. scan the doc and print from the image. It will print a webpage. It will print a copy it makes but it is blue instead of black....

If colours are faded I would recommend running several cleaning/deep cleaning cycles to try and pull through the colours. It is difficult to say without seeing the print quality, but it sounds like an issue with a partially blocked printhead within the printer.
The printing in blue would suggest to me that one of the blacks in your printer is blocked. Were all 5 colours present on the nozzle check?

> replaced the print head

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

Canon PIXMA MP600 printer. What should be a blue image is turning out "pink". I have followed all the checks, and get a message "nozzels not blocked no need to clean" What else can I check? Ron Knights

Try printing a full colour test chart Get the following and print them out, compare to what you see on screen. This will tell you which carts are working or not working.

You might need to run a cleaning cart through the printer. Are you using compatible carts or originals and if they are compatibles have you used them before? You may also have a problem with the print head.

Both of these are royalty free and can be used over and over.

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan

I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.

Canon Pixma IP5000 wont print cyan or magenta

Think you need to clean the sponge that the ink cartridges sit on in the head tray they are probably blocked with dry ink. You can remove the print head and tray by lifting the lever and gently lifting it out..... go here
to see how to carefully clean it with compressed air. I had to do this too.
