Canon Pixma IP4000 cyan ink will not flow even though I have repeatedly cleaned and deep cleaned and replaced ink tank.


If you have gone through the process of cleaning and deep cleaning, as described by canon, and you still get no ink flow after printing 2-3 pages, the print head needs to be replaced.
Here is WHO to contact and HOW to install the print head:

Be sure to have your model number (iP4000R) or part number (QY6-0049-000) ready for the sales person.
