Question about Canon PIXMA MP760 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Canon PIXMA MP760 printer had been printing a horizontal stripe of a lighter cyan where ever that colour occurred. Today during printing it displayed an error. Unfortunately I didn't catch the number. I did what it said. "turn of the printer, turn it on again and press OK". I had one more good printout. And then it happened- fine white stripes and fading of all colours on all printouts. The nozzle check is full of fine white horizontal lines and general fadedness. Does anyone recognize what has happened to my printer. It's a few years old and we've been filling our own ink tanks with non Canon ink all throughout that time. Regards,Sue

    Same problem on a MP780. When printing a nozzle check, the cyan has a light and dark band. These are very even and I cannot fix.

Maybe an obvious answer, but have you cleaned the print heads several times? You can also remove the cartridges, remove the entire print head and clean it with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip.

Why is my Canon Pixma 4820 suddenly leaving lighter lines through color pictures.


Worn print head. And for what they charge for a stinking print head you can get a new printer for less with a warranty to boot!

My MP540 is printing solid colour as stripes (cyan and magenta are low but not out) - has never done this before when inks are low


You probably have a nozzle that is not working. Try to do the alignment of the printhead, and do a cleaning!

My Canon pixma mp760 wont print in black. colour printing is ok


Possible that the B&W ink cartridge is faulty or there is poor installation . You need to shut down the printer and remove the ink cartridge. now reinstall after ensuring that printer was disconnected and then connected.

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan


I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.
