The problem you are describing seems to be one of Genuine parts compatibility? Are you inserting the Canon replacement cartridges
? if not then the printer will fail to communicate with them. I had the same problem, unfortunately these replacement/s carry printed circuits with information chips that only communicate with their genuine machine/s.


If the cartridges are genuine then maybe a fault on their circuit boards/chips and should be returned to the seller.


I hope this helps?

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

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.

Why does the entire photo printout with a pinkage color overlay when indicating using glossy photo paper, even different photo paper. This occurs with several different programs not just Photoshop. I've...


That happens if you put photo cyan where the plain cyan ink should be, also photo magenta is too weak to be used in the magenta slot. I've also seen generic inks that weren't the right colors.

Too much green


Printing too green is a sign of low or no Magenta ink. Might pay to look there. (Green is Cyan and Yellow ink, so Magenta is missing to make Grey/Black)

Sounds like someone might have also managed to mix up an ink cartridge and put it in the wrong slot?

Check that the nozzle patterns for each colour are in the right place on the print out according to the sample in the manual / online. Maybe Magenta is missing altogether?

Cyan ink low


If one of the colours are low, it will try mixing the remaining colours as best it can (the exception to this is the black ink). However, this is only a bandaid as far as the printer is concerned.

Problem with color quality - Canon PIXMA iP4000


i had this problem... its the ink! Check you are using magenta and NOT "photo magenta", and also that you are using "cyan" and NOT "PHOTO cyan"... basically photo cyan, photo magenta and photo yellow are not designed for the ip4000, if you check the smallprint on the box it does not list the ip4000.

This exact problem happened to me and it was driving me crazy. I think the "photo" versions of the inks are for printers that take two tanks of each colour, and the photo version is used for very subtle colours... so if you are ONLY using these inks, photos will appear washed out, yellow etc
