You will need to get new printer heads and or cartigdes. the 6c has something blocking the head probably dry ink. and the streak from 6pc is porbably because iit is low on ink.

I have a Canon Pixma MP270 and I can only print in colour both the black and colour lights are lit up on the printer


f print quality does not improve by the standard cleaning of the Print Head, clean the Print Head deeply. Cleaning the Print Head deeply consumes more ink than the standard cleaning of the Print Head, so clean the Print Head deeply only when necessary.
1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Clean the Print Head deeply. (1) Press the g0022565.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until y appears. g0054776.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning the Print Head deeply. Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the deep cleaning of the Print Head. This takes about 2 minutes.

3. Check the print head condition.

When the deep cleaning is completed, the LED returns to the copy standby mode. To check the print head condition, print the nozzle check pattern.

See " Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern".

If the problem is not resolved, turn off the power and clean the Print Head deeply again after 24 hours.
If the problem is still not resolved, replace the FINE Cartridge with a new one.

See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".
If the problem is still not resolved after replacing the FINE Cartridge, contact the service center.

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles.

NOTE If the remaining ink level is low, the nozzle check pattern will not be printed correctly. Replace the FINE Cartridge whose ink is low.
See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".



You need to prepare: a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.

3. Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

4. Print the nozzle check pattern.

(1) Press the g0020617.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until A appears. g0054754.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.

The nozzle check pattern will be printed.

5. Examine the nozzle check pattern.
See Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern.

Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern

Examine the nozzle check pattern, and clean the Print Head if necessary.

1. Check if there are missing lines in the pattern (1) or horizontal white streaks in the pattern (2). g0054755.png (1) Check if lines are missing in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".

g0020623.png
(A) Good
(B) Bad (lines are missing)

(2) Check if horizontal white streaks are present in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".
g0020621.png
(A) Good
(B) Bad (horizontal white streaks are present)

Performing Maintenance:

If Print Head Deep Cleaning does not resolve the problem, turn off the machine and perform another Print Head Deep Cleaning after 24 hours. If the problem is still not resolved and if you are sure that the ink didn't run out, then the Print Head may be damaged. Contact your Canon service representative.

Hope this helps.
All the best.

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:
WHO: Purchasing a Print Head
You may purchase a print head* for this printer by calling 1-800-828-4040 Monday-Sunday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight. EST, excluding holidays. When calling, speak the term "order parts" when the speech routing system asks the reason for your call. You will immediately be routed to the Parts Desk for assistance. Be sure to have your model number (iP4000R) or part number (QY6-0049-000) ready for the sales person.

HOW: Install the print head and ink tanks correctly iP4000/iP4000R/iP5000

Seat the print head Below is the procedure for seating the print head and ink tanks:
  1. Power on the printer.

  2. Open the paper output tray and top cover.

    Note: Gently open the paper output tray while holding it.

  3. After confirming that the print head holder has moved to the center, open the inner cover.

  4. Remove the orange tape securing the print head lock lever, and raise the print head lock lever.

    Note: If the top cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the print head holder will move to the right. If this occurs, close the top cover once and then re-open it.

  5. Remove the print head from its package and remove the orange protective cap.

    <1> Electrical Contacts and Print Head Face's Nozzle Area
    <2> Ink Supply Filters

    Note: To avoid any damage, do not touch the print head face's nozzle area, electrical contacts, and ink supply filters. After removing the protective cap, set the print head into the print head holder immediately. Do not re-attach the protective cap after it has been removed.

  6. Set the print head into the print head holder, and lower the print head lock lever until a click sound is made.

    Next, install the ink tanks.

  7. Remove the cyan ink tank (BCI-6C) from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the wrap film completely.

    Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the orange tape is not completely removed, it may interfere with printing.

    <2> Removed incorrectly

  8. Hold the ink tank as shown in the image below. Twist the orange protective cap in the direction of the arrow, and remove it.

    Note: Remove the protective cap while holding it, so that fingers will not be stained by the ink.

  9. Insert the ink tank into the slot at the right end, and push down on the PUSH mark on top of the ink tank until a click sound is made. Install the other ink tanks in the same manner.

6C cartridge space will not print regardless of cartridge


Replace print head by following manufacturer's instructions. These instructions can be found on-line at www.canon.usa.com under support for your particular printer. Enter "removing print head" into the search box.

Try removing your present print head and cleaning the electrical connections with soft brush or clean microfiber cloth (lens cleaner cloth for glasses). Replace your old head and see if this solves the problem. If not, you probably need to order a new print head from Canon, or you may decide it is better to just buy a new printer because of the price.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.
