Pimxa ip-4000 printer - black color on photos

Approx 24 hours after printing photos on the Canon Pixma ip4000 printer, the photos have a discoloration where there is a large amount of black colo. For example, the photos that have people with black hair, there is a discoloration on their hair - kind of becomes frosty looking. This discoloration is not there when the photo is first printed and oly becomes noticiable about 14-36 hours later. This only occurrs on teh black portion of the photo. I am using Premium Plus HP Photo paper, high gloss.

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.

Use the Canon software to run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog any ink-jets that are not spraying ink onto the paper.

My Canon pixma ip 4000 won´t print. The light at the turn on button blinks five times orange and then comes one green blink. I have tried to clean the print head but that didn´t change anything....

this indicates a the print head is not installed correctly or is faulty.

if the green and orange is alternating 5 times then it is caused by the sheet feeder.

Before your start maintenance, please check whether all print tanks have ink in them
Do a Nozzle check first, this will indicate where you have the problem. Once identified, you can do a color cleanig or a deep cleaning.
Do a Nozzle check again.
You could repeat this cycle about three times or so.

If your problem still persists, then its probably the Print head with jammed nozzles.

Print head remains clogged canon pixma iP 4000

I have successfully managed to clean the print head with isopropyl alcohol by placing a flexible plastic tube over the cartridge seat, filling the tube partially with the alcohol, then blowing very hard through the tube. The alcohol does not appear to harm anything.

If the print head moves left and right smoothly on the paper as it is printing and all the other colors and black print is ok the surely the Print Head is faulty, get it replaced and your printer will be OK.
