Question about Canon PIXMA iP4600 Color InkJet Photo Printer
Sometimes if cartridges are not used for a long period of time, their contacts got rust and will show cartridge problem, this could even lead to permanent failure of the particular cartridge/s. I don't exactly get when you say "I have done the cleaning and deep cleaning...." Do you mean you've cleaned the cartridges physically or have only cleaned them using the printer's tools? You need to clean them properly using cleaning materials like brush/cotton dipped in alcohol or acetone. Remove all the cartridges, clean the contacts (golden dotted circuit on the cartridge) and also clean the contact on the printer. Since your printer has a separate print head, it's important to clean the print head separately. Separate the print head and clean it with warm water so that clogged/dried inks will be cleared from the print heads (don't use brush or anything to clean the print head, you may damage it.).
After everything is cleaned and dried, reinstall them while you press the cancel button the the printer.
One more thing i've skipped, unplug the power cord while you clean the cartridges so that any static power will be discharged. Before you reconnect it to install the cartridges and to power it on, press the power button several times.
If this cleaning doesn't help, you'll need to replace them, but I hope it'll work for you.
If you need further help, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.
