Looks like the cartridges and the printhead is clogged

    Cleaning
    the print head using a
    moistened cotton may not be the exact solution because its just the
    first remedy when encountering this problem.

    Take out the print head again and soaked it to water with ammonia
    solution. Leave it overnight. You can also use canned air to blow the
    small tube in the print head to unclogged once you have taken it out
    from the water with ammonia.

In my pixma ip2772,when I print photo then black colors are printing properly but when I print any types of documents then my black color is not working.It's not showing dark.What can I do?


This printer has a separate cartridge for black and colour. When you print pictures, the printer uses all three colours mixed together to make black and does not use the black cartridge. Your black cartridge may be empty or the printhead may just be dried out. Try a head-clean from the maintenance menu and then print a nozzle test. If still no result then try replacing the black cartridge with a new one which has a new printhead as part of the cartridge.

Cannon mp560 photos are printing all a pink colour


it sounds as if one or more of the nozzles of your printhead is dried or blocked. I would advise printing printing a test page like this one to clarify the cause.

Assuming one of the colours is missing (i would imagine it would be cyan or yellow) then run some head cleans from your printer software or the printer itself.

I replaced the blue ink cartridge and now all colors look blue.


You say all colours look blue? If this is true, does black look blue? If so then black is not printing at all so blue takes over. Did this machine print colours ok before you changed cyan? I would suspect that you are using compatable ink cartridges and they are suspect. check that all the cartridges are in the correct positions. Then run the cleaning cycle and see what happens. If the problem still persists then I would change the print head. The print head part number is QY6-0073-000.
Good luck

I changed two colour ink cartridges on my Canon iP4200 printer. Now it won't print colour. The pattern check does not print any colour.


You might want to double check to make sure that your printer takes two color cartridges? If I remember correctly, the Pixma takes one black and one color cartridge? If you put a color cartridge in the black ink assembly that would cause it to stop printing.

Double check and make sure that you have one black cartridge in the correct place and one color on the other side.

Too much red


I'm assuming that the colour cartridge is a three in one. Blue, Yellow and Magenta.

When printing a colour document, the printer automatically balances colour mixtures from the three primary colours listed above. Should a print out be too red, its probably because its run out of yellow and/blue.

The best way to check is to print out a test page, you should get a block for each of the colours and black. If one's missing, there's your answer.

Sir,
Your problem is not of specially cartrigde but what you need is a special Paper which is made to print Photos and other colour full pictures. If you see is not this problem then there is chance that your cartridge is leaking from blue color point as there are three inks in color cartridge Red,Blue and yellow , than you need to replace you colou cartridge with new one .
