Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer
My best guess is that you are using after market inks or re-filling them yourself. Without know what your are using for ink and what you have already tried it's hard to give you any advise. If you are using after market ink or refills I would guess you have a bubble of ink on the bottom of the nozzle plate on the bottom of the print head caused by leaky cartridges. If there is a bubble of ink there the print head can't spray the ink through in and just continues to add to the big blob of ink. Try removing the ink cartridges and then the print head and see if the nozzle plate is clean and shiny or if it is got a lot of ink sitting on it. If it does rinse the print head with hot running tap water both inside and out until the water runs clean. Shake the print head several time to help extract the ink while rinsing. Just pat the head dry and don't worry that it is still wet. Don't put it in the oven to dry like some "helpfull" people have advised. The rinse water won't hurt anything. Run a clean out or two and normally you will be back in business. Hope this helps.
