Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Printing with greenish cast

About 6 months ago this problem arose. Despite going through the maintainance menu, deep cleaning etc, the problem remained. I downloaded a new or updated driver from Canon and this seemed to sort the problem out. Now it has happened again but I am told my driver is up to date.
Where do I go from here? At 74 I am not exactly a rocket scientist!!

Using Canon iP4600, I'm trying to print a black-and-white photo with a black background and a half-tone image in the front, but I keep getting purplish and black stripes instead of an all black background....


Hi there

Sometimes, printers use colors from the other cartridges in order to form a deep black colour. It does seem that not enough pure black ink is getting onto the paper.

Can you check that there is enough black ink remaining? If so, go to the print options of the program from which you are trying to printer the image, and set the colour output to black or greyscale only. This may be within an option called Printer Preferences from the Print dialogue window of the program from which you are printing from.

Then, print an image as a test and see if it comes out in black only this time.

I look forward to your reply.

Regards

MAGENTA NOT PRINTING


The other week I had the black print head clog up, requiring daily nozzle deep cleaning [a normal 'ocassional' maintenance function]. Thought I needed a new Print head, so anything worth a try.
I loaded up an old black cartridge [I load all my own......always have] with Isopropyl Alcohol and ran deep clean on that cartridge a couple of times, then repeat printed [6 times] a page full of the number 8 in about half inch character size, to get the alcohol through the nozzles. then Deep cleaned again 3 times, to wash it through the print head.

I reloaded the normal ink filled cartridge and ran the '8' page again till I got good black output. It has now been working without problem, daily, for over a week. Clearly if it's a Magenta only problem, the cleaning as described above would be a bit different, as the magenta is one of 4 colour cartridges.
My printer does quite a lot of work, and was bought at least a couple of years ago, being used daily for alpha numeric and photo printing work. This was the first difficulty I experienced with it.
Hope the above might help.Ken

Canon i950 printing many blank strips/areas where text should be


I'm afraid it looks like the printhead is broken. A quick google sees them at about £80. Compare this to the price of a new model. I think 5-6 years insn't too bad though

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.

Double printing


Despite much deep cleaning, the printer is still not printing correctly - it misses out colours, letters etc. Do we need a new head, and how do we fix it please.
