Hi

Check for blockage in spray tubes. Also just hold the stop/reset button for 5 seconds and this should get you up and running. The ink level won't reset though, but at least you'll be able to print without problems.
Also try this:-

1. Disconnect the power cable
2. Connect it while holding down the power button
3. With the power button still down, press twice the "Cancel/Stop" red button
4. Release the power button
5. The printes turns into a kind of factory mode... (Wait for about 10 seconds, utils it says "Idle")
6. Press the ">" (next to the "OK" button) once."Shipping Mode 3"
7. Press the "OK" button.
8. Press "OK" again for "Without cleaning"
9. A test page will print..
10. Open the cover, like you are about to change the cartridges.
11. Disconnect the power cable again.
12. Take out both cartridges.
13. Close the cover.
14. Connect the power cable once again.
15. Turn the printer on.
16. Now just put the cartridges back...

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

Pixma ip4200 willl not print Cyan


I think the problm lies between the ink tank and the printhead. When this passage runs dry, sometimes it takes time for the ink to fill this passage again. Try printing again after a day or two.

Canon Pixma IP3500 prints B&W with white streaks


as i can suggest you that it can be the problem of head clogged internally where you insert your black cartridge .and the other main cause is while you give a head cleaning command to get the cartridge cleaned it sucks or pulls  the ink from the cartridge in such a huge quantity that 3-4 cleanings make the cartridge totally empty .due to this the ink gets very low and the printouts come with streaks.many a times setting the print mode in best makes the copy perfect.but the printing gets too slow in that best mode.

Did you run cartridge cleaning service from your computer after replacing the cartridges? If not, run cleaning once. If the nozzle check is not clear, there another option for deep cleaning, but i think it will take a lot of ink. Do it for best results. This will work. Are you using photo paper for Photo printing? if so give some time to dry the ink on paper.

Printing Problem


Look for ink clogged on the printer head. Run cleaning or deep cleaning after installing the new cartridge before printing. Take nozzle check print.
