Text is usually black. I am guessing that you are either simply out of black ink or the black ink cartridge is bad. If you do have black ink, try running a cleaning sheet through your printer. The steps on how to do this should be in your manual. Try replacing the black cartridge.

I have an Canon IP4000 printer that is not printing black text. It is printer colour but not black. I have replaced all the ink cartridges but only colour is working. Please help!!


pretty familar with that printer and if you have new cartridge check the head cleaner. If you clean the heads a couple of times that might unclog the black cartridge. Check inside your settings. I know you can turn the color completely off with that model but am not sure if you can turn the b+w off.

Printer is producing too dark and purple shaded output. I believe this has to do with nozzle jet function but there is no information on how to reset the nozzles on the basis of the colour printout. It's...


Are you trying to print
1). photgraphs in colour
2). Photographs in B&W
or
2). plain text
In canon iP4000, you can do a Nozzle check by going to the maintenance.

Go to print anything from a word file or an excel file > in the print box > go to Properties> go to Maintenance.
Here you can do Cleaning, Deep Cleaning, Print head Alignment and Nozzle check.

If your Nozzle check matches the check pattern(this you will find once the Nozzle Check gives a print), then it possible that either the right paper is not put in or your master could be very dark. Alternatively you could reduce the print setting to Standard...

Let me know if the above solves your problem..if not we can do some more trouble shooting.

Colours are not true, grey is brown


You are getting leakage from one color cartridge to another. Do deep cleaning and run nozzle check. You may have been using non-Cannon inks. They can corrode the ink cartridge seats due to inferrior quality ink. You may need to replace the print head. Check out Cannon web site under this printer support. Print head is in the $50 neighborhood.

Canon PIXMA iP4000 has five cartridges 6BLK,e3BLK,6y,6m,6c


You may want to puschace and use a cleaning cartridge but positive results are not guaranteed. It depend how bad your print head is clogged.

The cost is about $5.

Printing text


What program are you printing from? I noticed that sometimes IE7 will print screen content the way you described. The only work-around I have is to copy and paste the content to Word (or other word processor), and format it accordingly.

I have the same problem. Just spent £50 on a new print head which did sod all. I suggest using an maintenance hammer then buying another printer.
