Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Colour printing I solved the initial problem - required a computer 'head clean' followed by a test print. Cleaning ink tank I will try and seems reasonably possible though i am a mechanical engineer and not electronic hence hesitation. I now find that I can print documents black, or a very dark bluey-black but JPEG images in colour don't come out with the correct colours - you can tell I'm English by the correct English spelling of certain words. I tried a "deep clean" but this didn't seem to make much difference. Scan copy B&W text documents also come out blue. Even the paper has a blue tinge to it. Any ideas appreciated. David P.

    the only thing that comes to mind is either you forgot to take off the tape that covers the nozzles, or the printhead is bad.

Hi, I am having a problem with my relatively new canon ip100. Since I installed new cartridge for black ink, when I run the test of nozzle it shows that black print head needs cleaning: missing parts lines...


Welcome to FixYa!

Here are my suggestions:

Confirm that the Ink Tank is installed properly.
If the ink tanks are not loaked into place, the will not be supplied to the print head.
Remove tape from the
The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.
Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank.

Try to use other Black Ink Cartridge. The cartridge might be defective.

I hope this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.
Keep me posted.

No ink on printed pages


Try to pull out the ink cartridges. Then after 1 minute put the cartridges on. Then it will initiate head cleaning. Just perform the head cleaning to clean clogged nozzles. Then try to print a test page.

The colour is faint, a new catridge was installed


Hi there,
When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect, even if ink remains in the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the procedures below to clean the nozzles.

Step 1 : Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern.
If white stripes are noticeable
Step 2 : "Aligning the Print Head"
If print quality is poor
Step 2 : "Print Head Cleaning"
if the problem remains
Step 3 : Print Head Deep Cleaning"
if the problem still remains
Step 4 : Replacing Ink Tanks.

Note : * If the ink tank replacement does not resolve the problem, contact the Customer Care Center.
* You will be alerted if low ink warning is enabled.
* When the Maintenace button on the operation panel is pressed, the maintenance mode is shown. Numbers and functions that can be selected on the maintenance mode as follows :
01 : Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
02 : Print Head Cleaning
03 : Print Head Deep Cleaning
04 : Aligning the Print Head
05 : Reset the ink counter.
06 : "Display" or "Not Display" remaining ink volume.
07 : Date and order setting.

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern : Print the nozzle check patterb to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles and to verify print head alignment. Use this function when printed results are blurred or the color is incorrect,
1) With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter paper in the printer.
2) Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
a) Press the Maintenance button,
b) The Maintenance icon and 01 appear on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button. The nozzle check pattern is printed.
3) Examine the nozzle check pattern output by the printer.
a) Lines missing in this pattern indicate that the print head of black ink requires cleaning. Perform the Print Head Cleaning.
b) White stripes in this pattern indicate that the print head of color ink requires cleaning. Perform the Print Head Cleaning.
c) Uneven patterns indicate that the print head requires alignment.
Perform Aligning of Print Head.
d) Noticeable white stripes in this pattern indicate that the print head require alignment.
Perform Aligning of Print Head.

Print Head Cleaning : Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozles might be clogged. Cleaning the print head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.
1) Ensure that the printer is on.
2) Start print head cleaning.
a) Press Maintenance button.
b) Press right arrow once to display 02 on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button.
Important : Do not perform any other operations until the print head cleaning finishes. This takes about 50 seconds.
Note : After the print head cleaning finishes, print the nozzle check pattern to verify that the print head nozzles are clean.
If the problem persists, perform printhead deep cleaning.

Print Head Deep Cleaning : If print quality does not improve by standard print head cleaning, try print head deep cleaning, which is more powerful process. Print head deep cleaning consumes ink, so perforn this procedure only when necessary.
1) Ensure that the printer is on.
2) Start Print Head Deep cleaning.
a) Press Maintenance button.
b) Press right arrow twice to display 03 on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button.
Important : This process takes one or two minutes to complete so simply wait until the Power lamp stops flashing.
Note : After printhead deep cleaning finishes, print the nozzle check pattern to verify that the printhead nozzles are clean.
If the printhead is still not clean after the second deep cleaning, replace the ink tank.
If ink tank replacement does not resolve the problem, the print head may be worn out. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks.

Have a good day.

Print heads and test prints fine......will not print ay documents


I subsequently discovered that only black would not print - the other colours did. The following solution should work for any colour

Turn on the printer
Lift the front cover so that the ink tanks line up at the front
Move the grey arm to the right of the yellow upwards
Remove the ink tanks (in my case 4)
Carefully lift out the plastic holder for the ink tanks, this I believe holds the print heads
Clean the head(s) using cotton buds and injet refill ink cleaning fluid. I get mine from Tescos with my refill inks.
Replace everything and hopefully your printer will be o.k. Mine was

Does not print black colour


Is it nothing black? Try this. Move cartridge to parking position. Whith only black ink tank instlaled, **** the ink from the outlet pipe of head cleaning mechanic. If there is ink, the black head is not clog. Then try to print. If it's still no black ink printing, may be the electricity of black head is lost contact. so, the micro pump can't work good.

Re Canon Pixma 4000 black ink is not printing colours are printing Computer not used for 6 months


Canno ip 4000:

please go to the maintenance tab.
This you will find if you try to print anything.
In the print box >go to properties>go to maintence
Here the following Maintenance option are there:
cleaning,
deep cleaning,
Head Alignment,
Nozzle check.
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.

Please let me know whether you could solve it.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa.
