Question about Canon PIXMA iP5000 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Too much green

My iP5000 photos come out with way too much green. I changed all the cartridges. Strangest thing is that the photos come out okay when I print on mat finish paper but on glossy everything has a green cast or worse. I tried deep cleaning but no change. Is it possible to clean the buses and if so what would I use? Thanks

    Hi balu fixes,

    BINGO! A minute of steam and the problem was solved. I assume the steam got into the head and dissolved some dry ink. Photos come out now as crisp as when the printer was new. Thanks a mill for your help. I was at the end of my tether so I ordered a new printer, which I can now cancel. :-)

Hold the print head over a steaming kettle take care not to scald yourself. The ink will run out of the bottom of the printhead just dab on a piece of paper towel, when you see green you will have cleaned it. I dont know if this will do any long term damage to printhead but it has worked three times for me

Had paper jam. Now PIXMA IP5000 shows service error 6A00 and light alternates between green and orange 12 times. Have tried unplugging, turning off,etc.


Print head might be stuck. Try opening the lid and sliding the cartridge tray over to the left. Check to make sure there is no piece of paper left jamming it. While you are at it, clean the base pad by dabbing with a piece of paper towel to remove excess ink. You may also want to remove the Print head itself and then reattach. Make sure there is no gunk buildup. Hope this helps.

Replaced Yellow cartridge. Photos came out


Clean all cartridges to make sure ink is flowing. To do this put windoww cleaner ino a container about ten mm deep. Put the cartridges with the end where the ink comes out facing down into the container and soak for about ten minutes. After this dry off for with a paper towell and make sur each cartridge leaks color into the towell. may take a little shaking.

I have a ip5000 that has service error code 5100


I had the same problem. all i did was open the printer up and moved the thing that holds the cartridges to the middle by hand. mine seems to be working fine.

Tips:
#1 Move the cartridge holder back to the right manually, but carefully - close lid and turn the printer off, then on again.

#2 Move the printer cartridge and shut down three times, but it finally kicked in and started working again. Don't give up just trying it once.

Good luck!
