You need to replace the print head to fix the problem. You can't let ink printers sit for years. Especially when the print head is a part of the printer and not the cartridge.

I changed the yellow & magenta ink....now pictures are printing purple


It seems the nozzles of one of the ink chamber are clogged, try deeping the nozzles in warm water for 5-10 minutes to remove the clogg.

MAGENTA NOT PRINTING


The other week I had the black print head clog up, requiring daily nozzle deep cleaning [a normal 'ocassional' maintenance function]. Thought I needed a new Print head, so anything worth a try.
I loaded up an old black cartridge [I load all my own......always have] with Isopropyl Alcohol and ran deep clean on that cartridge a couple of times, then repeat printed [6 times] a page full of the number 8 in about half inch character size, to get the alcohol through the nozzles. then Deep cleaned again 3 times, to wash it through the print head.

I reloaded the normal ink filled cartridge and ran the '8' page again till I got good black output. It has now been working without problem, daily, for over a week. Clearly if it's a Magenta only problem, the cleaning as described above would be a bit different, as the magenta is one of 4 colour cartridges.
My printer does quite a lot of work, and was bought at least a couple of years ago, being used daily for alpha numeric and photo printing work. This was the first difficulty I experienced with it.
Hope the above might help.Ken

Canon Pixma IP5000 wont print cyan or magenta


Think you need to clean the sponge that the ink cartridges sit on in the head tray they are probably blocked with dry ink. You can remove the print head and tray by lifting the lever and gently lifting it out..... go here http://www.inkjethelper.com/
to see how to carefully clean it with compressed air. I had to do this too.

Pixma IP5000 printing pink


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Canon PIXMA IP5000 The printer was fine, until I replaced an empty colour cartridge (magenta) since then what shout be blue is pink and green is yellow.


One of the he cartridges is evidently defective.
Replace all cartridges with original ones.
After replacing, perform a clean head procedure from printer utilities. Do this several times.
That should fix the problem.

If that does not fix the problem, than you have a faulty print head.
