Maintenance your cartridge with head clean or deep clean. If you don't get full colour, then change the colour cartridge.

Wasn't printing the right in color...everything came out light pink. So I have all new color cartiridges in and still does not print all the colors...especially BLUE.


This is always the problem on Canon PIXMA MP Printer models. Its internal panel board inside is so sensitive to colors. What you will do is go to your printer and there you will find out its properties and or maintenance to solve the problems on ink. Just try to clean up your printer using the maintenance part of your printer. Keep trying to do this until the color becomes satisfied to your looks. Good luck!

I've got a Canon Pixma MP 500. Printing from my computer = faded print. Copying = blank page. Auto head align fails. Alarm light goes on. Have tried stop/reset button. How can I fix this?


Hello,

It sounds like the print head on your printer is either clogged or not working.

You get faint print from your computer because the computer will use your color inks to get gray. When you copy, it only tries to use black and the black isn't printing at all.

Check your user's manual and it should show you how to clean the print head. Otherwise replace the print heads and you should be fine.

Thanks,

Pat

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.


You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

Pixma IP4200- not printing color


If it's a generic ink, try another one, if it's a Canon ink, make sure the tape on top is removed, it covers an air vent, if that doesn't help, you need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000 around $40.00

Do I have to install a color cartirdge (CL-41)?


Some will allow printing with just black & others will not. You may need to put a color cartridge in to print. Check your owners manual or canon website to make sure but if you do need a color cartridge you can buy a generic brand that works with your printer to save some $$. Hope this helps.
