Hi I am not getting any Red from my printer


It's possible magenta ink to be finished, or the print head is dirty and it has dry ink on it. You must clean it with hot water. You must use the printer from time to time to avoid to dry the ink cartridge or print head.

My i455 won't print in black. Have replaced printer cartidges with new, twice. Can print in color fine.


Clean the nozzles. If it still does not print in black have the print head checked up by a technician.

I have tried deep cleaning several times on my Pixma iP5000 but can still not get the blue and magenta colours. Thr printer has been stand still for approx 4 years. Black and yellow works fine.


You need to replace the print head to fix the problem. You can't let ink printers sit for years. Especially when the print head is a part of the printer and not the cartridge.

Color printer


Is the colour cartridge new? it sounds like the yellow and purple heads could have dried out.

With my lexmark i could put the ink cartridge on a wet cloth to moisten the dried ink, then wipe it alow dried paper to remove it. However i would recommend reading your manual that came with it, or is available online before doing that. There are many different types of printehead and this method could damage it.

Also if you remove the cartride you should see some electrical contacts that line up with a cip on your cartridge, make sure all those contacts are clean.

Canon i455 not printing properly


(i posted this for someone before)

When you remove the black cartridge there will be electrical contacts inside the printer that lines up with some contacts on your cartridge, make sure these are clean

Also, according to this printers manual, have you tried a printer head align?

"(1) Open the Printer Properties dialog box. See Opening the Printer Properties dialog box directly from the Start menu
(2) Click the Maintenance tab.
(3) Click Print Head Alignment.
Follow the instructions on the screen."
