All the ink tanks are not lite up. I was in the middle of a large print and before I put the first ink tank it did not light none of the ink tanks were lite.


There are a couple of possible problems.

1 A faulty printhead
2 Faulty or empty ink cartridges
3 The contact pins in the printhead could be dirty, covered, or sitting in a pool of water/ink generating a short-circuit.

Check all the cartridges have ink visible in the rear ink chamber, check the contact pins are clean and dry, make sure the chips on the cartridges are clean and dry. If all those are OK count the number of orange flashes the machine shows in a repeating sequence. 10 sequential flashes often indicates a trashed print head.

Pixma Pro 9000 Canon Printer is printing terribly colored photos.


You need to check your nozzle check print and see if all the colors print. Also many generic inks are not the right color. Take out your yellow cartridge and see if it's still yellow, if it's orange or brown you need a new printhead, there's a membrane inside that keeps the colors separate and when it breaks you get cross contamination of the colors.

How do I change the ink cartridge?


1. Make sure the printer is on and open the printer cover
2. Make sure the printer is paused and the output tray at the front of the printer is lowered
3. Hold down the cleaning button for three seconds until the print head moves slightly to the cartridge replacement position, and the power light flashes when the print head is in position. Do not move the print head by hand, it will be damaged
4. Lift up the clamp that holds the cartridge you want to replace as far as it will go.
5. The cartridge will rise partly out of the cartridge holder. For black ink replacement, lift up only the smaller clamp on the left.
6. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly.
7. Remove the cartridge from its protecting bag. Remove only the yellow tape seal from the cartridge. The yellow tape seal must be removed. Leaving the tape on when you install the cartridge will permanently damage it. Do not remove the tape seal from the bottom of the cartridge.Otherwise ink will leak.
8. Lower the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the label on the cartridge face up and the arrow on the cartridge pointing to the rear of the printer.
9. Press the ink cartridge clamp down until it locks in place. Do not press the cartridge itself.
10. Press the cleaning button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. This process may take a few minutes to complete. The power light continues to flash while the printer performs the ink charging operation.
11. Never turn off the printer while this light is flashing. Doing so can result in incomplete charging of ink. Even if you do not press the cleaning button, the printer moves the print head and begins the ink charging process about 60 seconds after you replace the ink cartridge.
12. When the ink charging procedure is finished, close the printer cover.

You are now ready to print.

"WRONG CARTRIDGE" continues to flash on the screen.


I have experienced the "Wrong Cartridge" error about 4 times in four years. I have never bought a replacement print head. I do occasional printing each week. Typically the problem occurs after a color cartridge goes empty and the ink dried to the print head. The solution for me has been to remove the cartridges, remove the print head, place the print head in hot water in the kitchen sink (softens water based ink that has hardened)and then use a Q-Tip or tissue paper to clean the print head until it is nice and shiny. Reinstall the print head, insert ink cartridges that are not empty, let the printer cycle through a self-test, use the set button to accept vertical and horizontal print patterns and you'll be good to go!
If that doesn't fix it, you'll need to replace the printhead ($49-69 depending on where you buy it.

Canon ip1800 printer not working


Hi,

when the yellow led flashes is never a good signal... you should check the manual's printer to find out the error code meaning "4 yellow flashes and 1 green)
Usally it's the waste tank that is full, in this case you need to:

  1. Push “resume” for 5 seconds for canon IPXXXX.
  2. Push Power switch then remove power cord.
  3. Insert plug power cord while pressing “power switch” at the same time.
  4. Push Start/reset by step 2 continue Wait display shown “0′
  5. Push + change display from “0′ to “1′
  6. Push color button 2 times
  7. Push Power switch again , Printer will print 1 page
  8. Open cover
  9. Unplug power cord
  10. Take out ink cartridge #40 and #41
  11. Insert plug again
  12. Push power switch
  13. Open cover (scan cover)
  14. Insert ink cartridge #40 and #41 again

Since replacing 2 ink cartrides the printer doesn't work. The on/off light is flashing yellow


Have you tried unplugging the power cord from the back of the printer waiting a few seconds and plugging it back in. This may help it recognize the cartridges.
