My MP540 is printing solid colour as stripes (cyan and magenta are low but not out) - has never done this before when inks are low

You probably have a nozzle that is not working. Try to do the alignment of the printhead, and do a cleaning!

After some prints I get a blue stripe on the right side of the sheet and a noisy click while printing If I print a whole blue page then I can print at least 8 to 10 sheets without the blue stripe on side

Everything you say refers to Cyan (Blue). This is not uncommon with HP printers. I would try another Cyan toner but shake the cartridge first before removed any seal or pakaging.

Good luck

Printing colour is wrong, colours come out pink. Nozzle check indicates cyan colour is not printing. I have carried out cleaning, deep cleaning. I've cleaned the print head and finally just replaced the...

> replaced the print head

Did you replace the tri-colour ink-cartridge, or did you replace the print-head mechanism?

Are you sure that the CYAN part of the ink-cartridge is not empty?

Colours are not alligned properly. prints cyan as a shadow of magenta and black

Go to printer's control panel, using arrows go to Reports and print Configuration page. Look at the bottom colored stripes. If some of them fade to their ends (usually magenta and cyan), then your laser scanner unit's mirrors are dusty and need cleaning.To do so remove back cover and side covers. Disconnect all wires and remove the metal frame with the electronic. The laser scanner unit is a black plastic box behind the frame. Remove its screws and open it. Clean mirrors with lint free cloth with isopropanol or glass cleaner.
The dust occures because the main fan at the bottom, next to the laser scanner assy. Remove the fan's gratings and seal with adhesive tape its vents - one at the bottom, one behind the magenta and cyan toner cartridges. This will not harm the printer.

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan

I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.

I get this blue stripe down the right side of the page whenever I print in colour. When I print in black and white the colour is not even but there is no blue stripe.

Open the doors to locate and wipe off the green shiny roller really well. Spin it and wipe it off all the way, especially on that right side. Pull out the cyan toner and wipe it around where the toner comes out. Check other rollers for blue marks and wipes those off as well. Lit free cloths work best but I just use a damp paper towel and then a dry one.
