I have a canon ip4200. On plain paper, standard print, prints in pale, pale lavender/blue, with hyperlink in blue (clearly seen on paper); on high and custom, the print is barely visible, with hyperlink...


Ok so on reading this it appears that your are barely printing black.
1. have you tried a genuine canon cartridge?
2. have your performed cleaning on the black cartridge?
3. Start the printer and ask it to print something. While it is printing kill the power and gently move the carriage to the left. On the right side of the machine you can now see the purge unit. You will need a torch shining on the purge unit. check it to see if there is a paper scrap anywhere near or on the purge. It may be soaked in ink so may not be easly seen.If so remove it and perform cleaning again.
4. Clean the wipers on the purge with a dry cotton bud.

If none of this works then its looks like a blocked/weak printhead and you will need to replace it.

Good luck

I have all the correct color cartridges on my MP530 color printer. All of the sudden it coated a blue tint to my color printings. My print out look blue. Any suggestions I can correct the printer to print...


Just make sure the right colors are in the right place, photo magenta is not interchangeable regular magenta. Also run the nozzle check to make sure all colors print, if after 2 deep clean cycles you don't have all colors you may need a new printhead.

Hello,
If the print head moves left and right smoothly on the paper as it is printing and all the other colors and black print is ok the surely the Print Head is faulty, get it replaced and your printer will be OK.

Prints in lavender color only


  1. Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
  2. Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
  3. Continue doing this until it looks clean.
  4. Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
  5. Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
    1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
    2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
  6. Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Horrible print quality


hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. the first problem is the paper you are using hp photo paper is specialty formulated to be used with there inks. every manufacture is the same if you want the proper looking photo and you are using a Canon printer you need to use Canon photo paper because the paper is formulated for their inks. hope this helps to clarify.
