Maybe if you have access to another canon printer you could try the cartridges in that to prove if they are ok. Most of that series have those cartridges.

The auto print head alignment prints ok. The Nozzle check from top to bottom prints as follows: 3eBK ok; 6C top half light blue - bottom half darker blue; 6C ok; 6M top half light pink - bottom half darker...


It sounds like your black (K) or Black/Yellow (KY) head needs to be replaced.
The problem appears to be in the top half of the black head.
Without knowing more (like what make/model the printer is) I can't help more than that.

I think I put in a wrong colored toner cartridge. Pages printing in wrong colors. Can't find a list of the cartridges I should be using.


The make and type of cartridge is generally given in the users handbook/manual provided with the printer. If you do not have that ,you can log on to Canon web site and then go to support. Select your printer model and you can find the the specification of cartridge to be used with your printer. The list of the cartridges is given below: BCI-3eBk Black ink tank, BCI-6Bk Black ink tank, BCI-6C Cyan ink tank, BCI-6M Magenta ink tank, BCI-6Y Yellow ink tank You can also go the this link and download the manual if you do not have the same http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip4000#Overview

There are magenta horizontal stripes going across all color prints. I have done nozzle checks and cleaning but still the 6M and 6C are not solid colors as they should be.


try checking for dirty contacts where the ink cartridge connects to printer (where it sits, the gold pins or somethin).

If changning cartridges dont work it probably your carriage ribbon

6C cartridge space will not print regardless of cartridge


Replace print head by following manufacturer's instructions. These instructions can be found on-line at www.canon.usa.com under support for your particular printer. Enter "removing print head" into the search box.

Try removing your present print head and cleaning the electrical connections with soft brush or clean microfiber cloth (lens cleaner cloth for glasses). Replace your old head and see if this solves the problem. If not, you probably need to order a new print head from Canon, or you may decide it is better to just buy a new printer because of the price.

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.

Google it (canon printer cleaning cartridge)

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

New printhead will only print 3eBK, no color


If you're concerned with a clogged printhead try to clean it with acetone solution. Also, check the cable connections to your printerheads they might be loosened..
