Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer

Not printing Yellow

I have a yellow cartridge installed that is brand new.  Printer does not print yellow. I've printed several nozzle check pattern sheets and nothing. I did a regular cleaning and a deep cleaning and re-aligned the print heads.  I swapped out the yellow with a cyan and the printer knew I had the wrong cartridge in there and gave the appropriate error code. Then I put the yellow cartridge back in, hoping it had been reset, but still no yellow.
Do you have any solution to this problem? I'd appreciate your help. I love this printer and hate to get rid of it.
thanks SR

One of my cartridges does not work


Start out by running a "nozzle check" in the printer setup screens. If the cyan isn't printing a full pattern, then do a "clean" pass, up to 3 times. If three times doesn't fix the missing color pattern, it's possible that the cart is defective, and isn't flowing ink.

My Epson R320 prints yellow over everything


One key diagnostic you need to perform is a nozzle check. This will tell you what has happened to the other ink colours as much as indicate if yellow is polluting other nozzles.
You can run a nozzle check from Printing Preferences > Maintenance.
Once it has printed you should (normally) see a sort of stepped grid pattern similar to this.
If you can scan or take a photo of the output and the post it as a follow up it'll then be possible to get a bit more of an idea of what could be happening.

Epson Stylus Photo R800 not printing certain color


You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

Are the ink cartridges just a few copies, I have new copier and print is very faint


Hi,

You need to clean the print head and insert the cartridge and check, whether it is working at fine because a dirty printer header will not allow the right formulation of the basic cyan, magenta, and yellow to print and comes up with the yellow color and not red.
If you still face the problem after cleaning print head then you need to check for a clogged nozzle. Clean the nozzle and then try printing it will work fine now.
To clean the print head from the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. Furthermore, you can clean the print head by Using a cotton Q-Tip & Isopropyl Alcohol and gently rub the print head with alcohol.

Hope this helps.

If you still have any queries, please feel free to ask us.

Stylus printing striped alternating shades of yellow and green of image


Possible printhead issue.
Please reseat the black cartridge. Let the printer charge like it normally does.
Print a nozzle check pattern. If you see gaps, missing lines or missing colors on the pattern, clean the printhead using the driver. 3 consecutive cleaning cycle is recommended. Compare the nozzle pattern over the last printout. If you see any improvement, you can clean the head numerous times until you get a perfect nozzle check pattern.

My canon pixma 4000 lide won't print yellow, even with a new tank


I doubt your printer needs recalibrated. If one color is not printing, check the following :

1. Is the suspect ink tank snapped firmly into place?
2. Did you remove the sealing paper pull tab completely off of the tiny air hole on the cartridge? I've had this happen and found the paper or a small part of it to be still in place which prevented the cartridge from working.
3. Try using the maintenance tab on "control panel" "Printers" "properties" and do a cleaning of the print nozzles. Do a "Print test pattern" procedure to see how your progress is working out.
4. If all fails, try another yellow cartridge. It may be defective
