Question about Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer
Pixma ip4000 was working great. Suddenly stopped printing all colors. Will only print the 3e black check pattern. Will not print any of the color check patters. Deep cleaning doesn't help anything. Black printing is great!
Hi, it could be few things wich you having problem with.
First, how old are the ink tanks, it could be clodged.
Second the print head nozzles are clodged at that places.
Third, the purge unit does not work OK.
First remove all inks out and remove print head. Then on wet cloth, wet it with distiled water, few times press the bottom of print head ( nozzles ), then the 4 circles must change from colour to white. That means that nozzles are cleaned.
Dry head by pressing it on dry cloth.
Put it in, also the inks, and run few times the deep head cleaning. Every time take a look at print pattern.
If the head is to badlly clodged, test pattern would be just a little bit more better.
But now you know if the problem is in head or something else ( purge unit or inks ). The new head isnt so cheap regarding the printer so then the best solution would be to buy new printer.
If you do not want to buy laser colour printer, atleast buy one on wich ink tanks has printhead on. Its slightly costly, but you have one worry less - the print head is changed every time you change the ink.
Hope that helped
