Make sure that you have removed the packing tape from the nozzles of the ink cartridges.

Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.

Ink may be new, but their nuzzles may be blocked; depending on manner of storage. To be sure apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you still have a good amount of ink in it and the nuzzle is not blocked. If not blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nuzzle is blocked. To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so that the nuzzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nuzzles, the procedure may be repeated over to get results.

Did you remove the seals from the cartridges???

Please double check this and then go into the printer program (in the control panel) and run the cleaning routine.

Canon 5750 Won't print the color, although it's set to do that, and cartridges all have ink in it. I deep cleaned and also ran a nozzle check ... but don't know how to interpret that. A = 0 B = -1 C =...


Hi Sue, first tell the exact printer model, because MF5750 is laser printer B&W, lbp5700 is also laser and doesnt have ink.
Wich ink printer do you have like pixma 5300? pixma 4300?
The 5750 doesnt exist in canon range of printers.

But, by your description you have print head problems or clodged inks or purge unit problems.

Sometimes the printhead itself gets clogged. You can remove it with the green lever to the right of it. Take both cartridges out, take the printhead alone and soak it in lukewarm water for an hour. Rinse when done. You will likely see lots of black ink in the water that has been softened and removed from the printhead. Blow excess water off or leave it to dry. Put known good cartridges back in and you should be ready to go. Done this many many times.

Canon pixma ip 4300 colour problems


If they are generic inks, sometimes the colors aren't quite right, also in your machine you can't use the photo inks, the photo magenta and photo cyan are not the right shade for your machine. You need plain magenta and plain cyan. Beyond that you may need a new printhead.

Canon IP4200 printed great photos when new. My


Hi,

Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.

The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.

My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.

Printer won't print


It always helps to replace with the correct brand as cheaper versions do fail, also if you had replaced it with a BC-20 from Canon, the supplier may replace it for you. It would be a good idea to trust the printer at this stage, try a Canon BC-20

Canon Pixma IP4300 - cartridge recognition preventing any printing happening.


I seem to be having a similar problem with my cannon pixma 4300 as certain others, i have just recently replaced all the inks with " original" cannon inks and all of a sudden it refuses to print anything, it says that one of the inks is not working, ( Yellow) I remove it, replace it again and the light comes on but when the slide retracts the light seems to go off. any ideas would be great, this seems to be a fault i have read a few times.

Print color quality


It sounds as if your adjustments are off. Does this occur when printing from any program, or only a specific one? If any program, the setting has to be in the printer driver itself. Is there a "reset to default" somewhere in the driver? Under the "Color management" tab (Start | Settings | Printer & Faxes | Canon MP390 | Properties) there might be an "Automatic" setting - choose this. Also, go through all the tabs on the printer driver and turn off anything that might affect print output - you'd be amazed how many such settings there are. Hopefully, all you have is a tweaked setting which is causing trouble...
