Need Help Asap!



i got a canon iPiXMA 3000 and i just installed new ink cartridges , now it will only let me print black and white for some reason ?

i checked over everything and all seems right what can i be the problem?


Moved to the Printers forum…




This is the same issue that you posted before, your color nozzles are not firing.
If it fails the nozzle check test, then you don’t have a lot of options. Remove the head assembly and clean all the contacts on the back. If that fails, then you could have a dead print head or something far worse. The IP3000 isn’t really worth the cost of buying a new head ($50), especially if it doesn’t fix it.
The IP3500 or IP4500 are cheap to buy, however they do use chipped ink tanks.

My suspicion is that the printer has issues beyond a dead or clogged head.
