It seems that your cartridge needs replacement. But you can still try this:

remove your color cartridge, dip the head in warm water for about 5 mins.

remember, dip only the head. it's the part where ink flows out. be careful not to touch or wet the gold contacts on the side of the cartridge.

Printer printing blank. New ink cartridges.Clean and Deep Clean utilities done.


Hello, first unplug the the printer and take out the cartridges, first dab them on a wet paper towel until the ink start flowing, then take a q-tip dipped in alcohol and where u insert the cartridges, clean the print heads, replace the cartridges and power up. If that doesn't help it you have bad cartridges.

My canon pixma iP4300 wont print cyan, I have perfoermed deep head cleaning, replaced cartrdges 6 times and still same problem


Unfortunately the problem is in the printhead situated just under where the ink cartridges go. It can be removed by removing ink cartridges and lifting it out from the top. You could try cleaning it or dispersing it in a mil of hot water for 1 minute while holding it. Then dry it, reinstall it and run deep clean again. Unfortunately this does not work very often but you could get lucky.
If not then only alternative is to buy another printhead and they cost more than the printer is worth.

How do I direct my Canon ip4300 Printer to no longer print from the normal black 5BGBK cartridge (empty) but to print from the 8BK (full)


You can't because CLI-8Bk ink cartridge is use only for photo printing.For text, document or gray scale printing the printer use PGI-5Bk.You need to replace your empty PGI-5Bk.

The Blue ink is not coming through despite multiple deep cleanings (it will help for about 1/3 of a page and then revert). I have reset the print head, tried two new cartridges, powered off for awhile and...


put it in warm water, i mean the print head. Leave it for 5 - 10 minutes.
Dry it, put it back, draw a blue square, and print it. If it started to print a little repeat the procedure with the water

IP4300 only recognizes magenta OR cyan


1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.

3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.

4. reinstall print test page

5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.

I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.
