Canon pixma iP1000 is skipping random lines when printing


Sounds like it's congealed ink on the print head. You can buy cleaning kits and do it your self. Relatively in expensive compared to leaving it into the shop.

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.

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.

Pink and blue streaks on right side of page


most probably your "soak" pad need exchange. check your manual and change it. when you "deep clean" heaps of ink is absorbed into the pad exacerbating the problem, not solving it.

remove cartridges first and check them for existence of any foreign matter,

check for presence of debris under the head and parking place, remove if any,

i would suggest cleaning of printheads, albeit this can be risky (check first if your ink is soluble in water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit, use that which solve your ink without clumping as cleaning agent), remove cartridges and allow appriopriate solvent to sit few second on metal rasters, wipe them with clean absorbing tissue and repeat procedure till solvent is "sinking" through the net.

remove old and install new absorbent pad under the print heads,

re-install inks, print rest page and then "normal" page. ink on first test page maybe very weak as solvent need to go through first.

if you follow the steps correctly, your should have clean print on the end.

"deep cleaning" is just waste of time, effort and ink. it is better if you create yourself a document with alternative lines of all three basic colours and black and then print it.

My MP830 leaves white horizontal bands when printing black & white documents. Color printing seems fine. Pattern 'F' is missing on the print alignment page.


You need to continually clean and deep clean and realign the black until the results are acceptable. Try manual alignment if the auto does not work. Also clean around the exit hole of the black ink cartidge with a cotton bud and isoproyl alcohol.

Canon pixma ip500 horizontal bands of non-printing areas


Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

Canon Pixma IP3500 prints B&W with white streaks


as i can suggest you that it can be the problem of head clogged internally where you insert your black cartridge .and the other main cause is while you give a head cleaning command to get the cartridge cleaned it sucks or pulls  the ink from the cartridge in such a huge quantity that 3-4 cleanings make the cartridge totally empty .due to this the ink gets very low and the printouts come with streaks.many a times setting the print mode in best makes the copy perfect.but the printing gets too slow in that best mode.
