SOURCE: Removing the print head

John.

Best solution is to clean the head with it in place. My experience says that if you remove the head, you may as well bin the machine as you can't clean it out of the machine any better than you can with it in-situ.

Send me your email address and I will forward you info on in-situ cleaning that I found works very well. Bear in mind there is also a technical issue with the RX and CX series that causes a blockage in pump drain pipes.

HI

FIRST YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE CORRECT WHIT PRINTABLE DISKS.
YOUR PRINTER WOULD HAVE CAME WITH THE NECESSARY SFTWARE CALLED CD PRINT.
OPEN THE PROGRAM AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO CREATE THE IMMAGE ON THE CD/DVD.
YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH AN IMAGE OF A BLANK WHITE DISK, AND WHAT EVER YOU DO THERE WILL BE PRINTED ON YOUR REAL DISK.
YOUR CANNON PRINTER WILL HAVE AN OPENING IN FRONT WHERE YOU WILL HAVE TO INSERT THE DISK WITH THE PROVIDED TRAY ( A BLACK RECTANGLE WHICH THE CD/DVD WILL FIT ON).
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PC AND YOU CANNOT GO WRONG

SOURCE: flasshing five times a orange leds canon pixma 4500

If the LED is blinking 5 times it means ASF (cam) sensor error [5700].

To clear memory, you must reset it.

You can try and clear the error by holding down the power button and waiting for it to turn off then wait 30 seconds and turn it back on. {you might need to unplug it to get it to turn off}

Or,

Hold down the stop/reset and then push the power button while the printer is on. The printer should shut off then wait 30 seconds and then hold the stop/reset again and push the power button and the printer should turn on with the error cleared.

Hope this helps.

Canon printer banding


On your computer, run the Canon printer software, to run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog any blocked ink-jets.

Tip

How to unclog a clogged print head on the Canon...


Using a cotton swap dip into some plain water and then drop a few drops of water onto the outlet of the ink cartridge [you will have to remove the ink cartridge and turn it upside down].

Also while the ink cartridge is still removed, drop a few drops of water onto the inlet orifice into which the ink goes. The orifice of the ink cartridge sits right on top of the inlet to the print head when the ink cartridge is fully installed.

After putting the water drops onto the ink cartridge and onto the inlet orifice of the print head, I did the 'clean' procedure as listed in the "Canon PIXMA iP4000 Properties" of the program on my PC. Then I did the deep clean procedure. After that I printed the print pattern and found that this technique worked quite well -- since before I had tried isopropyl alcohol which didn't work to unclogged these print heads.

When I had the blue print head get clogged [on my Canon iP4000 Pixma printer] and I tried this method. It worked immediately.

I hope it works for you too.

God be with you!

My canon PIXMA iP 4000 does'nt write out the colours, only black.


Use the Canon software to check the ink-levels in the COLOUR cartridge. If empty, replace it.

Cannot get the magenta ink tank to flow in a Cannon Pixma 4500


Yes, you can take the printing head out  and soak it up in hot water. You can even blow some air on it, this will dislodge even the nastiest dried ink gunk. If even after that the head doesn't work then it's dead - buy a new printer.

My canon pixma ip4000 has stopped printing. It is going through the motions but the paper is coming out blank with nothing on it.


Hi
If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.
Or possibly a faulty cartridge.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.
