I have had my ip1500 since 10/04. Sometimes the ink will dry out if it is not used for some time. Try cleaning the printhead by soaking it in about 1/2" of hot water. Keep changing the hot water until no more ink comes out. Make sure you do not get the contacts wet ( just the base of the head). Dry completely and do a nozzle check and cleaning before doing a major print job. I have used generic ink and have printed more than a case of paper (12 reams) per year in both color and black.

SOURCE: Printer problem, yelloow head not working on my canon

I stumbled on an ebay seller who is selling cleaning solution for print heads. Canon print heads are removable without special tools.

I gave mine a clean with metho, as I figured that it could not get any worse and I got the gist that I was going to have to replace the printer anyway.

I cleaned it with metho (just the bottom of the print head) and ran the clean print head function twice from maintenance and it is not working perfectly.

I do recommending taking this advice with caution as I do not know if this process could cause further damage or not work.

Did you buy factory new Canon cartridges or third party cartridges.

If you are using factory new Canon ink, call Canon about their defective ink.

If you are using anything else, want to bet there is no such thing as a warranty.

How do I change cartridges for a Canon Pixma iP1500 color printer?


You should be able to open the top hatch while the printer is on and the print head will slide out to the middle so you can access the cartridges.
Remove the existing ink cartridges by pushing down on them until they pop out of place.

I have cannon pixma ip1500 printer sold in good working condition buyer wants refund saying the waste absorber is full, therefore dont workHELP


Inkjet printers have a fibrous pad inside them that collects the waste ink from cleaning the print head. Over time, this pad fills up with ink and can no longer hold any more. When this occurs, the printer indicates a "waste ink full" error.

Replacing the waste ink absorption pads is something an authorized canon service facility can take care of for you. Once they are replaced, it'll be functional again.

No black ink printing


Check the ink cartridge, take it out and make sure there isn't still a plastic piece stuck on the contact area. It's the metal piece on the bottom of it.

Pixma iP1500:new ink cartridges fitted but no Magenta


Take a look at the mounting point. They break very easily on this model. If not broke, try cleaning with a swab and inserting the cart again.

Confirm that the ink tanks are installed properly When replacing the ink tanks, confirm that the new ink tanks are installed properly. If the ink tanks are not locked into place, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be supplied to the print head.
  1. Check that the printer is powered on and open the front cover.

  2. Wait until the print head moves to the center.

  3. Check if the ink tanks are installed properly.

  4. When installing the ink tanks, push the top of the ink tank until a click sound is made.

    Note: If the ink tanks are not installed properly, paper may not be fed properly, or ink may not be ejected.
