20 Most Recent Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer - Page 9 Questions & Answers

Have you run the printer maintenance options of "cleaning" or "deep cleaning". Is this a Canon cart or a brans X import The brand X black carts I've purchased recently have been bad about allowing ink into the area that feeds the printhead and I've had to punch a few needle holes in areas that seem to need venting to get them to work.

The internal adapter is dead. If is in warranty, call your canon service, they will send you another new.
If it is not this case, just buy other, it should be cheaper.

Print head temperature rise error [5200] - Print head (QY6-0042)
- Logic board ***'y (QM2-1520)

Before replacement of the logic board ***'y, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or
EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the bottom case unit
(QM2-1249) or the ink absorbers (QC1-4222 / 4223 / 4224 / 4263 / 4264 / 4864) when replacing the
logic board ***'y. See 4. SERVICE MODE, for details.

Inkjet printers do not like being left unused for long periods.
Some of the color print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print nozzles.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this problem.
NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.
