    Printer cartridges are full, but black is not printing every line clearly, and the cyan is not printing on color prints.

It is very important to use a good quality ink, you can buy ink and toner for very cheap online and that would cause malfunctions in the printing process. visit sites like to get the best quality ink at the best possible price.. you could also try cleaning your printer with a special type of cloth, here is a link to explain this in more deatails.

Replaced black, would not print black, deep clean times two and still the same problem. What can I do?

Hi, the print head needs to be removed and washed with warm water, Please check the manual for print head removal and re-installation. Also print head alignment must be done on re-installation. The process sounds complicating but is quite simple. Do as if you are replacing a ink cartridge. When the print head is at centre in this process and stops.Switch power off on printer.Remove the cartridges, then remove the print head, wash in warm water carefully, do not use any brush or do hard rubbing, dab dry on paper towel. Replace print head into printer, then cartridges, then switch power on. Do print head alignment, clean print head once and print test pattern. Hope this helps as it has worked for me and is still working. All the best.

Printer has worked perfectly since purchased, suddenly started printing only the black portions of a photo. Did a nozzle check which confirmed only black cartridge functioning. Deep cleaned all heads....

The print head is still probably still partially blocked. Cleaning/deep cleaning tries to clear the head by flushing ink through, doesn't always work but does use up your ink.

You can get print head cleaning kits, PC shops,ebay etc. Try one of those.

Here's a really useful ebay url. with some youtube links, if you run the second video down you should get a pretty good idea.

Here's a direct link :-

You don't have to buy this one, there may be cheaper, have a shop around.

Canon pixma mp530 not printing colour. The cartridges are new, when I print an alignment, no colour prints, only the black and white. I've performed a clean, deep clean, print head alignment, nozzle...

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

I've changed printer cartridges but it is not printing a thing. Not a test print, not print head alignment nothing. I've done the clean the deep clean print head alignment and there is still no ink coming...

Please check the seating of ink cartridge. when you replaced it, it should make a little click sound confirming that the ink cartridge has seated properly. Please repeat the process once more. Also when you remove the ink cartridge check if the thin strip on the ink pad has been removed. If not then remove it before fixing it again.

How do you remove the print head from a canon ip4600?

You will need to open the ink cartridge door and let the print carriage go to the middle. Then, remove al ink cartridges and lift the latch to remove the printhead. This video shows another Canon printer, but same concept:
