SOURCE: 3e Black cartridge won't print
My cyan cartridge wasn't printing and nothing worked - until I tried Deep Cleaning 7 times in a row as suggested by HMlBarryLSal - it worked a treat, many thanks HMlBarryLSal

SOURCE: smeared lines
Okay, this was the problem I posted a few days ago. It's fixed now, so in case you have the same problem with smearing, here's what the help desk from Canon suggested: Open the cover and remove the ink cartridges. There is a gray lever in front of the cartridges. Lift this lever and the printhead can be easily removed.
Our printhead had a buildup of black ink on the surface. I carefully removed this with rubbing alcohol. I let the printhead dry and replaced everything. No more smearing. Imagine a help-desk that actually helped!

1. Get compressed air
2. Run Printhead under HOT water, do not worry about contacts getting slightly wet.
3. Blow compressed air with straw attachment into screens where the cartridge nozzle sits on printhead. then let it sit and dry.
4. reinstall print test page
5. if this fails open paint/photoshop and print a page of the color that is not printing correctly. rinse and repeat until colors flow freely.
I have several ip4300s and I have yet to give up the ghost on a printer with a clog ujsing this method.

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.
