Question about Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

My Canon ip6700D will not print. the electrical cord is plugged in and it has power. the printer cable is connected to the printer and my laptop. The paper is inserted correctly. All of the tests worked yesterday. I've cleaned the rollers, etc. Today though it will not print a test page as it did yesterday. The printer says it is offline. If it needs to be on line I don't know how to make that happen. The yellow ink is low. Driver 10.30.3.0

SOURCE: Printer won't print

I have had a similar problem to this: I have had a BJC 80 for nearly 5 years and carried it around with my laptop using Win 98 and a par - par cable. It worked beautifully and successfully - so much so that when i saw a number of ink tanks going at very cheap volume prices in PC World i picked up a lot of them. Changing to an XP meant that i had to keep on using the par to par cable via a docking station but prevented my use of it with my new laptop - so when i brought it out of retirement it gave the blank printing problems yoiu described. By checking some error messages that it expected a black cartridge (which is what was installed) i found that inthe setup the software indicated it defaulted to colour cartridges. By changing this on the computer, it still printed blank pages but by changing the cartridge to colour it sprang into life when the set up asked for colour. I tried 2 other print heads which i had (3-4 years old) but still blank paper when printing to a black cartridge. I am now awaiting a new black print head carrier to see if it makes a difference. When trying with my laptop using XP and a par - usb cable it does not work at all. I have removed the sware driver for the Canon 80 and manually installed the one for the Canon 85 but no luck in printing to par - usb at this time

SOURCE: won't print black, won't clean

You should consider that NOT PRINTING a long time (30 days) with a printer can lead to ink drying out in the printhead, clogging the nozzles. If you have some tehnical skills, you can remove the cartridge and desassembly the printhead (where the cartridges are in) and do the following:

Put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the printhead with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridges back on the printhead (without installing it in the printer), rap it in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles.
Get the cartridges again out of the printhead, install it in the printer, then install the cartridges again and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

It should work if it's just a clogging of black nozzles.. If you dont have the tehnicall skills needed, Canon gotcha, or you can visit a local specialist to make all this for you, they usualy have better equipmens, as ultrasonic cleaners and special solvents that makes all this easyer.

If it doesn't work after that, then the printhead is dead, and here Canon tertminated you because a printhead is more expensive as the whole printer.
So kiss your printer good bye and get a new one, but at least this time get one that uses cartridges with printhead ON THE CARTRIDGE (like HP and Lexmark) or, if you are in love with Canon, take one that uses the cartridges PGI-5 for black and CLI-8 for color, they also have sepparate printhead from cartridge but it seams they are more durable. And easy to refill, as well!

Hope it helped you in any way!

Rate this solution please. Thx.

You did the right thing. Sometimes a bad printhead or a bad cartridge will cause a leak and will damage both. Good job!

SOURCE: printing blank paper

try a few things, your printer maintenance my need to be adjusted, such as settings. i have one at work and i hate it, canon printers are so non-user friendly. do you have both a black and a color cartridge in it, if so you will have to tell it in the maintenance settings, if you only have one or the other installed you have to put both in it wont print with only one cartridge. if you just bought it and still have everything that it came with...take it back and buy a lexmark.

Disconnect power cable from printer and from the wall. Re connect after a minute - first to printer and then to wall. Try the switch button. If no luck, then the switch must be fixed. Usually its ok.

Error code 5200


- unplug the power n usb cord
- keep the headprint inside the craddle
- try to move the headprint into full right-corner(headprint
cleaningside)by moving-left the craddle belt until u heard
some "snapp" sound
- plug the powercord again
- if u heard "cleaning progress" then u r printer going to respond
- try to print 'printer test page' or 'nozzle check'
- if it succeed, try to print some 5-10 pages continuous

the dreaded 'Error 5200'. According to PrintX, the error is caused by printer head overheating and I think thats correct because whenever I touch the "Do not touch/ hands off" part of the print head, I feel some SCALDING heat.

TIPS. 1. Plug out your printer when not in use. Never let it undergo standby mode. Plug it in ONLY when it is needed. The reason behind this is that your printer only needs VERY little amount of electricity (around 5-24 V at 0.2-0.55 A, stepped down by its built-in transformer) and after a length of time, excessive heat accumulates not only in the heat board but also in the sensitive print head. Unlike how our computers heat up, the heat in the print head is SCALDING!. This is based from experience. Try touching your printer's too.

IP1500 error5200
1. Set "ink counter reset" (If you chage cartridge new one or refill).
2. Set "low ink warning setting" as default.
3. Unplug power and USB cable.
4. Waiting 10 min.
5. pluging in power and USB cable.
Please make 1 step and check result.
Good luck

IP6700D will not come on, Is plugged in , but does nothing


Have you tried another power supply? If you have access to a voltmeter, try measuring the voltage at the end of the power cord that plugs into the printer. You should read whatever the voltage is that you'll find stamped on the supply itself.
