No matter what color I choose to use, everything prints blue or black. My ink tanks are all full and are new. I ran the cleaning tools and the heads are open but all the colored stripes were shades of...


remove the print head . soak in isoprople alcohol 91%proof. do not touch the gold pads in back of the print head. do not push hard on the head with the soft cotton cloth as tiney fibers of cotton may clog the heads further. let soak 5 minutes at least. then air dry and replace in printer and run clean cycle or deep clean cycle . then print a test page again. you might want to wear rubber gloves for this... ps clear house hold amonia helps cut the ink if you get it on anything

IP3000


canon ip3000 & ip4000 the heads get dirty.
if you keep doing cleanings and deep cleanings it will eventually cause an error because it thinks the tank is full.
take out the head - in the sink, with warm not hot water rinse out much ink as possible. then use windex, the ammonia removes the ink. flush good - shake out head, drops will form on the bottom. keep doing it until drops are clear. rinse with water. shake out well. dry contacts.
I use a water pic as a pressure washer to force water thru. replace head and tanks.
do not use clean, instead print a page of 'X's
make every 5 rows a different color. this way you can see what is working and it won't fill up the cleaning tank, causing a code error.
you can use any ink you want as long as it is the proper type- don't have to be canon

My printer is a Pixma IP3000 I can't get the yellow ink to print


Take out the cartridge and inspect it... have you removed all the protective tape. reinsert it and make sure it is in correctly (the same as the others)

Bad colors in print


perfrom a deep head clean 2 times this will clean the printer printer head out. make sure u have heaps of in in your ink tanks as it uses a bit of ink to clean the heads out. then try and do a print. also you may need to do a head alignment on the printer. this head alignment should be done after u replace ink tanks.
the only other item it could be is the print head on the printer.
