Try these steps if this did not resolve try to clear the memory of the printer
and try to print ..

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Problem pixma ip 4600.


Cleaning ink cartridges takes up a lot of ink. So, you may be out of ink in the respective ink jet cartridges that supply ink for the colors which are missing. Try new ink cartridges.

Have you heard of Wysywig? What you see is what you get?

Well on color pictures on you monitor you get wysinwyg what you see is not what you get. Monitors are backlit, so colors are much more vibrant than what a printer can generally deliver. Explore the printing properties of your priinter as there are adjustments that can be made to enable better quality and true to color prints. The paper you use to print out your pics is also important in producing color that is close to original.

When you view your pics on screen try adjusting the color hue to the point it becomes overcolored and try a few experimental prints to see what level of the slide is needed to be used to achieve a brighter more vibrant picture. I would also like to say that the Canon 210 , whilst it is a very good printer, is at the cheaper end of the photo printer scale.

Talk to your ink and paper supplier, they can often show you or recommmend printers that are much higher and more accurate in delivering brighter and true to color photos.

Poor print quality, was OK but colors are very faint on the paper, everything checks out OK in the maintenance programs.


Hello there:
this is normally due to a dirty print head or the nozzles is clogging up
If you have ran your maintenance for the print heads and cartridges several times at least 4 in a row and this still does not clear up and you have tried to get new ink cartridges.
Go to your local printer supply center like office depot or staples and get the print head flush kit this is a specially formulated liquid that you install and it flushes out the print heads and gets all of the ink that has built up in the system out and gets the print heads cleaned it cost about 6 bucks but well worth it
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike

clean the printhead by removing it and putting a couple of drops of inkjet cleaner on the gauzes, reassemble and run the deep clean again a couple of times

Colors are not printing out true.


I replaced the Office Max ink substitute with an original Canon ink. This did not help. I decided this problem most probably had to be a printer head issue, so I gave up and bought a new printer instead.

Poor color printing quality


do you have the canon print management software installed? it's located in the maintenance tab on that software.

www.canon.com has that by model number

6C, 6M, and 6Y tanks don't print


Maybe if you have access to another canon printer you could try the cartridges in that to prove if they are ok. Most of that series have those cartridges.
