Re: Orange Tinge on Color Prints

I'll bet you need a new print head. I had all the same symptoms.I tried cleaning it, Ultrasound, etc but the big black head was dead. Try ebay for a new one or stateside they appear good value. This fixed my problem. (my machine is 3 years old and this seems to be the age they go at from other problems here.

Good luck

Replace the print heads for the coloured inks you replaced, run the align printer head diagnotic from the printer menu. This should correct the print problem.

Cleaning cycle a few times. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Prints with a pink tinge

Have you tried cleaning the print heads using either regular or deep cleaning modes? You should be able to access this through the software options or on the printer itself. You might also manually clean the ink cartriges with a tissue.

OK, Canon will hate me for posting this!!!!!

Remove cartridges.
Remove print head.
Go to sink or tub (stianless steel, not pastic type), pick up roll of paper towel on the way.
Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
Run HOT water till HOT.
Turn hot water to dribble.
Run hot water through print head, careful not to wet contacts.
When water is clear coming through print head, place print head on paper towel.
Repeat process until no colour on paper towel.
DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out to dry.
You may wish to let print head air dry overnight but I replace it after drying.
Replace print head in printer and replace cartridges.
Start printing again
I do this on all my Canon printrs every 6 months

IP4000 Color Printing Problem

If you have a monochrome option, I would use that.
I'm guessing that your old black and white photo's (which I'm thinking you scanned in may have a sepia tinge which the printer is emphasizing, and if you only want black/white prints, no need to print with colour.
