Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Red colour prints brown

I have printed 100s of pics over the last few months. Was very satisfied. Prints in iP4200 were perfect. But my last attempt was a disaster- red will not be red but an awful brown. Other colours are ok but any other colour which are nearly red are a big NO. Please help. I tried everything.

    I always use genuine Canon ink. I have done deep clean, nozzle clean etc but only once.Checked magenta ink, cartidge is more than half full. I do not think ink is the problem. Thanks however for your help.
    Other solutions, any body?

Just replace the non genuine inks with proper Canon ones and then do about 4 full cleans, that should fix it. If not you will have to replace the printhead, which is usually caused by using non genuine ink. Good luck

Just changed the yellow cartridge. The printer says it's full. No ink. Same thing with last cartridge. Tried deep cleaning.


Ok I understand the printer says its full but are you saying your computer says no ink? or that it prints no yellow ink?

Ok assuming you mean that it prints no yellow ink, the culprit ususally means that the print head needs replacing! Call Canon with your model and you can buy the part for new print heads for your printer

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

Only Prints in Magenta


The cartridges may still be at fault, or there is a problem with the processor board in the printer. I have also seen problems with the ink jets in these.

Printer doesn't print correctly.


My almost new F4100 printer is printing irradically, prints perfectly for two or three lines, then it fades to nothing, in a few more lines it prints perfect again. I can't find where to fix it.

IP4200 CD problem


I have the same problem. This was a sudden occurrence, where I printed 3 disks perfectly, then the machine went technical and spat out the tray. The only solution I have found is to simply push the tray in about 1cm (½ inch) past the arrows. I have cleaned, reset, downloaded drivers - the whole bit, but I cannot get it to work properly.
