Open Question

Canon IP5200 Printer

My Printer has just started printing in Blue/Black mix instead of Black.
I looked inside the unit, took out the cartriges, lifted the lever to the left hand side of the cartrige holder and lifted it out. The Blue one was a bit messy and the sponge running along the bottem track was wet and messsy. (Q) Does the printer need a new Head. (Q) How do I clean the sponge, is that a spare part. Can you help me please!
Regards Mike Redman

SOURCE: MP140 do not recognize cartrige

Ensure that you are using original cartridges.

Clean the cartridge sensor inside the printer ink carriage with isopropyl alcohol and cotton. From description it looks like a faulty cartridge contact.

The cartridge sensor is the metal plaque that connects to the cartridge chip, is located inside the printer carriage.

SOURCE: Printer print blue instead of black

I have the same problem with my ip 5200, when printing a document in plain black.. I spoke to canon support and they suggested to save the .doc document as a txt file before printing. It works. Not too sure if this uses any colour ink to produce the black.

You can also set the printer on grayscale. However, the printer uses the colour ink to produce black.... hence printing in black & white becomes rather expensive.

If anyone has drivers to fix this problem please let me know...

SOURCE: Printer does not recognize a full ink cartrige. Problem has responded to removing and then replacing the cartrige in the past, but that no longer works.

try to unplug your printer while it is in ON state ...it reset all your settings and after that it can recognizes your full cartridges..

Performing Maintenance:




Note :
Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order indicated by the label on the Print Head Holder. The machine will not print if an ink tank is installed in the incorrect position.
Step 1
Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern.




If lines are missing or if white streaks appear


Step 2
Print Head Cleaning.

If the problem is not resolved after performing Print Head Cleaning twice


After cleaning the Print Head, print and examine the nozzle check pattern (Step 1) again.


Step 3
Print Head Deep Cleaning.



If Print Head Deep Cleaning does not resolve the problem, turn off the machine and perform another Print Head Deep Cleaning after 24 hours. If the problem is still not resolved and if you are sure that the ink didn't run out, then the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

Hope this helps.
All the best.

You may need a newer cartridge
See if the printhead has any abnomal markings.
You can compare it with the color printhead.
If the printhead is good, see if the ink is flowing through the printhead.
Fill the ink cartridge to maximum
Squeeze the sides of the ink cartridge, ink should flow out.
If ink is flowing out, remove any excessive ink with a paper towel.
Install ink cartridges, do NOT do any cleaning cycle.
Since your black cartridge is full, cleaning may cause it not to print.
Do some black copy operations.

My color print outs, like mapquest, look like cartoons instead of pictures. I did a noozle check and yellow isn't printing. I took the cartride out and touched a paper towel to it, and the ink came out....


Never use aftermarket cartridges with your Canon Pixma ip5200 inkjet photo printer.

If your cartridge leaks fluid when out, then that's not a good sign.

Try to return for a refund if you just got it.

The ink cartriges wont fit into the printer.


This printer uses PG-30 and Cl-31 ink tanks. You can also use PG-40 and CL41. Open paper output tray. Turn on the machine and lift up the scanning unit or printer cover. Pull unit support down into place and the ink holder will move to the left. Gently remove cartridges and install new ones. Let me know of outcome.

My printer does not print black & White documents


You just have to clean the printer head or change it.
Happend to me and solved it:
Open the top the way you use to change an ink cartrige...Unplug the power cord.. the ink tray will stay accessible.
Save your ink in some plastic wrap.
Just where you pull the ink cartriges is the head. Lift the little arm on right top of the assembly and pull toward you the black plastic kind of container..(for ink cartriges)..
that is where the head is attached. DO NOT FORCE anything..it should come easily.
At first place in warm clear water..use rubber gloves..often change water. When it looks quite clean..it is not. Unscrew the two littles screws holding the flat ribbon tip where the ink should go out..Beware...lift it gently..
underneat there is a small rubber part..just lift the end covering the black ink exit...Now pour all this in warm water mixed with Windex for some time and change the water till it comes quite clear. Now blow air from a compressed air can in the black ink canal..you will be surprise to see the amount of plugged ink coming out from there.Rince, dry with compressed air,screw back parts,place everything back and try an head alingment test to see your Black here again..

Magenta printing as yellow


Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!
