    My printer now works fine. Solution: 1) Installed new print head. 2) Installed new cartridges.

    The tech suggested new print head. It helped somewhat. I suspected contamination from the bad print head so a changed the cartridges.

    All of my pictures print with a bluish hue. My blue cartridge drains a t a faster rate than other cartridges.

    When I first start up everything prints blue. I've done deep cleaning etc. Ink cartridges are new. After awhile it seems (?) that colors return to normal (I'm still testing this factor.). When I shut off for the night and turn on again then everything is blue again. Frustrating.

You did the right thing. Sometimes a bad printhead or a bad cartridge will cause a leak and will damage both. Good job!

Scanned pictures are printing with different colors

Are the ink cartridges refilled or compatible? They may be defective.
Are they installed correctly (not in the wrong slots)?
** Note that even if they are replaced it will take SEVERAL pages before the quality returns

Pixma IP4000 Printer

OK, Canon will hate me for posting this!!!!!

Remove cartridges.
Remove print head.
Go to sink or tub (stianless steel, not pastic type), pick up roll of paper towel on the way.
Fold several layers of paper towel and place on flat surface.
Run HOT water till HOT.
Turn hot water to dribble.
Run hot water through print head, careful not to wet contacts.
When water is clear coming through print head, place print head on paper towel.
Repeat process until no colour on paper towel.
DAB print head (DO NOT WIPE) inside and out to dry.
You may wish to let print head air dry overnight but I replace it after drying.
Replace print head in printer and replace cartridges.
Start printing again
I do this on all my Canon printrs every 6 months

Will not print black

first of all the most important auestion is have you used compatible ink cartridges or genuine ones, because the print head clogs up with compatible ones, i really doubt that the cartridge you installed is damaged because i haven't come across this and i am a canon technician, i know this model well
