    After cleaning several times my document still starts off printing ok then toward the middle of the page starts skipping and at the bottom fades out altogether. I cant get to the alignment dialog box to perform that function.

Canon PIXMA iP4200 not printing PGBK properly - only printing top 50% of PGBK grid on test page.


Man you did some awesome troubleshooting! I don't know, but it sounds like something is physically wrong with internal electronics. I'd call in the big dogs at Canon themselves.

How do you go about cleaning printer head


there is a cleaning utility "printhead clean" and printhead deep clean" under "maintenance" in the "printer properties". Try that first. If that doesn't help and there is definitely ink in the cartridge(s), you can remove the cartridges and soak the printheads in 5mm of hot water for 1/2 hour or so. DRY WELL then install back in printer and run "printhead deep clean".
Another way is to isolate the colour that doesn't print properly and print few pages in that colour (eg if yellow is not printing right...set out a full page of yellow background and print on high quality setting until yellow starts to print ok). This wastes less ink than the cleaning utility.

good luck with it

After numerous cleaning cycles the nozzles on my Pixma MP970 still show streaked patterns when printing the nozzle check. This printer has always has had poor print quality mainly black text. We got it as...


It will need a new printhead, QY6-0062-000, around $80.00. Leaving it sit and not printing just makes the problem worse, as more nozzles on the printhead get plugged. You get 90 day warranty with refurbished units and if it started out crappy you should have had a shop look at it, that model can print super photos! A new printhead will bring it back to life.

Poor print quality when cartridge replaced


Sometimes you need to perfom 1 or 2 head clenaings to prime the printer with the new ink.

The cleaning will clean your heads and refill the ink.
