Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet...

I have to run a "clean" operation each time I switch on the printer before the colours are correct.
I have changed all the cartridges and have tried all of the suggested fixes in the manual.
Can you help please????

What do you mean by "clean" operation? What ends up being wrong with the colors? Does the printer print with the wrong colors?

The print head may be failing, you would have to send it in for service for a checkup.

Noting wrong with your cartridges its the unit that is controlling them. They 'fail' eventually and cause this.

Got warranty? maybe they will fix it for you free.

Check with canon or your dealer.

Thanks,

Canon Pixma ip3000 will not print in color. We recently replaced all three color cartidges and when I went to do a nozzle check, it only printed the black part of the test page. Several times. I went...


I find this an unusual problem but lets look at the logic.
It worked ok before your replaced the colour cartridges.
Your replaced only the colours and now it does not.
Did you replace the cartridges with like for like?
Are they compatables? Did you run the cleaning cycle?
Run the cleaning cycle at least 3 times.
If still no good buy 3 genuine canon cartridges and see what happens.
If still no joy then must assume the printhead is the problem.
A bit of a coincidence?

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge on my Canon Pixma IP3000 but it is not printing - absolutely blank. However the colour cartridges are printing fine. Any clues?


Assuming a windows computer ... go to the printers section, right click on the IP3000, click on propterties then the maintenance tab. Try cleaning or deep cleaning and then nozzle check.

I want to print with black cartridge only but


The best option is to click on properties when you're going to print and select grayscale. I believe this uses mostly, if not all, black ink.
