I replaced the cartridge but not fixed, so I washed the Cartridge holder in warm water still no good, I then soaked the Cartridge ink holder in metholated spirits for two hours and then washed with warm water dried it off and now it works perfectly.

    This post got me going, since I also had only the yellow stop working. Print head cleaning and deep cleaning via the printer maintenance did not help. New cartridge did not help. I did not realize how easy the cartridge ink holder came out until I looked closer. Just take out the cartridges and lift up a gray lever and the holder comes right out. At that point I could hold the yellow cartridge against it's spot in the holder while I blew into the top of the cartridge (the end where the tape comes off when it's new). Of course I was holding it over some paper - and a couple of drops of yellow ink came through. When I put it back together it worked great again. The whole process took about 5 minutes.

The Print Head of the cartridge (Yellow) are clogged. That's why the yellow color of your printer are did not out when your going to print. You need to replace the cartridge to solve that problem.

Not print black colour


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 printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

If a line doesn't print, the ink is out of the cartridge for that inkjet cartridge color. Replace the cartridge. Deep cleaning can use a lot of ink up at a time.

Canon Pixma yellow color problem


Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

My Pixma iP4500 is leaving faint lines on my prints particularly noticeable on areas of even tone like blue skies. I've done the deep clean and nozzle check but can't fix the problem.


Having same problems. Have done all the checks and cleaning etc. Rang Canon. Requires a new part that costs as much as the printer did initially! The printer is so new that I haven't even changed some of the cartridges yet, and others only twice. Old enough to be just out of warranty. Seems to be the best solution is to dump the printer and take my photos to a retail outlet to be printed. Won't be purchasing a printer from Canon again, that's for sure! What a massive rip off!

Canon iP4500 not printing yellow


take the print head with all the cartridges still installed out of the printer. take a soft microfiber cloth and gently wipe the exposed surface on the bottom of the printhead. You should get some ink to wipe off the printhead.. reinstall and retry your printing.
