Replaced black, would not print black, deep clean times two and still the same problem. What can I do?


Hi, the print head needs to be removed and washed with warm water, Please check the manual for print head removal and re-installation. Also print head alignment must be done on re-installation. The process sounds complicating but is quite simple. Do as if you are replacing a ink cartridge. When the print head is at centre in this process and stops.Switch power off on printer.Remove the cartridges, then remove the print head, wash in warm water carefully, do not use any brush or do hard rubbing, dab dry on paper towel. Replace print head into printer, then cartridges, then switch power on. Do print head alignment, clean print head once and print test pattern. Hope this helps as it has worked for me and is still working. All the best.

Canon Pixma IP4000 cyan ink will not flow even though I have repeatedly cleaned and deep cleaned and replaced ink tank.


If you have gone through the process of cleaning and deep cleaning, as described by canon, and you still get no ink flow after printing 2-3 pages, the print head needs to be replaced.
Here is WHO to contact and HOW to install the print head:
WHO: Purchasing a Print Head
You may purchase a print head* for this printer by calling 1-800-828-4040 Monday-Sunday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight. EST, excluding holidays. When calling, speak the term "order parts" when the speech routing system asks the reason for your call. You will immediately be routed to the Parts Desk for assistance. Be sure to have your model number (iP4000R) or part number (QY6-0049-000) ready for the sales person.
