Hi There


Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Black won't print. Changed all ink cartridges,


It may need a new purge assembly, if it doesn't clean both sides properly either color or black will quit. You might try a new printhead first, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00

I want to print with black cartridge only but


The best option is to click on properties when you're going to print and select grayscale. I believe this uses mostly, if not all, black ink.

Canon pixma ip3000 won't print


Check usb cable if they are installed firmly and correctly. Check proper voltage input though designed as Autovolt system.
Try plugging the usb cable on another free usb port or you may try another computer to check if your printer works.
See if there are blinking lights and error codes. You can google for its error codes.
Check flex cable continuity, maybe some rodents have eaten it.
Remove ink cartridge, turn the power off and clean cartridge contacts including the holder contacts, turn it on and return cartridges. You may try borrowing a working ink cartridge of the same type from a friend.

Will not print black


first of all the most important auestion is have you used compatible ink cartridges or genuine ones, because the print head clogs up with compatible ones, i really doubt that the cartridge you installed is damaged because i haven't come across this and i am a canon technician, i know this model well
