HI,
No I haven't fix the problem. However I've been doing all the cleaning,cleaning and more cleaning. I finally gave myself a x'mas present. I bought a new printhead for the S530D. It's working perfectly now. I was tossing whether to get a new IP4600 or a new head, finally decided on the latter. Simply I can't get after market cartridges for the IP4600. The cartridges for the IP were way too expensive at this moment and not knowing whether the claims for the print numbers are accurate. Perhaps readers may be able to collaborate the claims for the IP4600 or IP4500.
Regards and seasons greetings & a happy new year 2009,

Replace the ink tanks with new genuine canon inks and start cleaning nozzles procedure from Maintenance tab on Printing preferencies.
You can try also taking out the printhead and soaking it in hot water for 10 minutes but this rarely gives good result. Air blow to dry the contacts afterwards.

Canon MX850. Print blank after ink changes. The black ink, PGBK-5, ran out so I replaced it with a cheap generic ink tank. But it didn't work, nothing print, not even color copy. I thought the ink is bad...


That is a common problem on all Canon printers, the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, has a pump inside and hoses that go to the filters and ink absorbers. When that unit goes out you need a replacement. A job best done in a shop. When the printhead is not cleaned and primed properly you get blank pages no matter how full the inks are.

The colour is faint, a new catridge was installed


Hi there,
When printing becomes faint or colors are incorrect, even if ink remains in the ink tanks, the print head nozzles are probably clogged. Follow the procedures below to clean the nozzles.

Step 1 : Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern.
If white stripes are noticeable
Step 2 : "Aligning the Print Head"
If print quality is poor
Step 2 : "Print Head Cleaning"
if the problem remains
Step 3 : Print Head Deep Cleaning"
if the problem still remains
Step 4 : Replacing Ink Tanks.

Note : * If the ink tank replacement does not resolve the problem, contact the Customer Care Center.
* You will be alerted if low ink warning is enabled.
* When the Maintenace button on the operation panel is pressed, the maintenance mode is shown. Numbers and functions that can be selected on the maintenance mode as follows :
01 : Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
02 : Print Head Cleaning
03 : Print Head Deep Cleaning
04 : Aligning the Print Head
05 : Reset the ink counter.
06 : "Display" or "Not Display" remaining ink volume.
07 : Date and order setting.

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern : Print the nozzle check patterb to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles and to verify print head alignment. Use this function when printed results are blurred or the color is incorrect,
1) With the printer on, load a sheet of Letter paper in the printer.
2) Print the Nozzle Check Pattern.
a) Press the Maintenance button,
b) The Maintenance icon and 01 appear on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button. The nozzle check pattern is printed.
3) Examine the nozzle check pattern output by the printer.
a) Lines missing in this pattern indicate that the print head of black ink requires cleaning. Perform the Print Head Cleaning.
b) White stripes in this pattern indicate that the print head of color ink requires cleaning. Perform the Print Head Cleaning.
c) Uneven patterns indicate that the print head requires alignment.
Perform Aligning of Print Head.
d) Noticeable white stripes in this pattern indicate that the print head require alignment.
Perform Aligning of Print Head.

Print Head Cleaning : Clean the print head if you suspect that the nozles might be clogged. Cleaning the print head consumes ink, so perform print head cleaning only when necessary.
1) Ensure that the printer is on.
2) Start print head cleaning.
a) Press Maintenance button.
b) Press right arrow once to display 02 on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button.
Important : Do not perform any other operations until the print head cleaning finishes. This takes about 50 seconds.
Note : After the print head cleaning finishes, print the nozzle check pattern to verify that the print head nozzles are clean.
If the problem persists, perform printhead deep cleaning.

Print Head Deep Cleaning : If print quality does not improve by standard print head cleaning, try print head deep cleaning, which is more powerful process. Print head deep cleaning consumes ink, so perforn this procedure only when necessary.
1) Ensure that the printer is on.
2) Start Print Head Deep cleaning.
a) Press Maintenance button.
b) Press right arrow twice to display 03 on the LCD.
c) Press the OK button.
Important : This process takes one or two minutes to complete so simply wait until the Power lamp stops flashing.
Note : After printhead deep cleaning finishes, print the nozzle check pattern to verify that the printhead nozzles are clean.
If the printhead is still not clean after the second deep cleaning, replace the ink tank.
If ink tank replacement does not resolve the problem, the print head may be worn out. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Thanks.

Have a good day.

All colours and black print faded. Black is a


ANSER #1

Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.

If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged.

Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.

If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality.

Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink
tanks.

Note Before performing maintenance
Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action.
Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.

In ip1000 printer black ink is not working.already replaced a black tank but it doesn't make any result.why???


Hi vdkmail,
Perform nozzle check pattern from maintenance menu in printer driver properties first. Is all black nozzle printed?. Is it perfect or partially printed?. Or no black nozzle printed at all. Then perform printhead cleaning procedure to fix this. If problem still persist means the printhead should be replaced with new one. But be careful, print blank (no nozzle printed at all) might be caused by faulty purge unit too so that ink not flows down from ink tank.

Canon MP390 Printing no magenta & now nothing!


Hey Everyone!

I have an MP390 that had a similar problem over a year ago. There is a very simple fix that worked for me, and I'm pretty sure that it will work for you too. :^)

Outline:
Open the printer as though you were going to replace the ink tanks. Once opened, with the print head centered, open the latch and remove all of the ink tanks. Gently remove the print head (it should come right out, even easier than the ink cartridges). Take a paper towel, wet it with warm water, and then gently clean the bottom part of the print head. The bottom part is the part that will have an orange ribbon running to four metal openings that look like tiny nozzles. After wiping away all of the built-up gunk (on mine there was a thick sludge), grab a new and wet paper towel, and lightly press it against the nozzles. This should start sucking ink through the print head, and you will begin to see four distinct colors (CMYK) bleeding into the towel. Once done, lightly dry the print head off (make sure that there are no loose water droplets) and then reassemble everything. Print a test page and everything should work. If it doesn't change the ink tanks just to be sure.

Fortunately for you, Canon has made the print head on the MP390 very easy to service/remove, so cleaning is a snap.

Steps:
  1. Turn Printer On
  2. Open Printer As If To Change Ink Tanks
  3. Release Ink Tank Latch
  4. Remove Ink Tanks
  5. Remove Print Head (Black Plastic Assembly In Which Ink Tanks Rest)
  6. Use Wet Paper Towel (With Warm Water) To Clean Tank/Nozzle
  7. Dry Excess Water
  8. Reassemble
  9. Close Printer
  10. Print Test Page



Good luck!!!

Print Head Cleaning / Head Refreshing If the printed nozzle check pattern is broken, missing, or a specific color is not printed, clean the print head. NOTE:
a. Cleaning the print head consumes a small amount of ink. Cleaning too often reduces the amount of ink in the ink tanks.

b. Print head cleaning is performed when you connect the power cord. Your machine may perform print head cleaning periodically to avoid clogging.
  1. Press <COPY> or <PHOTO>.

  2. Press <Menu> repeatedly until <USER DATA> appears.

  3. Press < (left arrow) or > (right arrow) to select [MAINTENANCE].

    sj402063.jpg

  4. Press <OK>.

  5. Use < or > to select [CLEANING] or [HEAD REFRESHIN] as necessary.

    sj402078.jpg

    [CLEANING]: Performs normal print head cleaning.
    [HEAD REFRESHIN]: Performs deep print head cleaning.

  6. Press <OK>.

    sj402079.jpg

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern to see if print quality improved.
    1. Press <COPY> or <PHOTO>.
    2. Press <Menu> repeatedly until <USER DATA> appears.
    3. Press < (left arrow) or > (right arrow) to select [MAINTENANCE].

      sj402063.jpg
    4. Press <OK>.

      sj402064.jpg
    5. Press <OK> again.
      The machine prints a nozzle check pattern (A).

      sj402060.jpg

  8. If broken or white lines appear in the pattern, perform two Head Refreshings (from steps 1 through 6) then print another Nozzle Check Pattern.

  9. If print quality does not improve after two Head Refreshings, replace the appropriate ink tank.
