Question about Canon PIXMA iX4000 InkJet Photo Printer
I have a pixma IP5000 that, up until now, has been working perfectly. All of the sudden, when printing a headshot photo, portions of the photo (the eyes and areas of hair) are being whited out, and have the appearance of being overexposed. The rest of the picture is printing just fine, with accurate colour. I've tried rebooting everything, but the problem still persists. Any suggestions?

I had identical prob with a PIXMA IP4000. Eventually solved by turning upside down removing bottom feeder tray and gaining access to the four rubber rollers which pick up the paper. I rubbed each one with light sandpaper to roughen up the rubber, turning each one by hand trying to try to abrade all the surface. It did the trick.

Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

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 http://www.inkjethelper.com/
to see how to carefully clean it with compressed air. I had to do this too.

The waste ink absorbers on a Canon are pads that are under the print engine and cover the whole bottom. It is a major dissasembly where the covers come off, cables and plugs un plugged, power supply removed, and then you need a shop to reset the counters.

When elements on the printhead burn out, that's what it looks like.You need a new printhead, QY6-0057-000, around $50.00
