Problem with Canon Pixma ip4000 printer
My Canon Pixma ip4000 printer: I haven't used it in months, and barely
used it all before then, but just 2 weeks after my warranty ran out it
has decided to stop working. When power is turned on, the printer head
refuses to snap-to the center; it behaves as if it's locked or a pulley
(rubber band?) isn't working. The power light flashes alternatively
orange and green (which, according to the manual indicates a possible
"repair shop" problem.)
Before I bring this to a shop and spend probably the amount I paid for
it brand-new, is there a way of fi...Warning about Canon PIXMA iP3000/iP4000 series printers
We were considering buying a Canon PIXMA iP3000 because these are the
first printers we have ever seen that finally quit ripping people off
quite so much on ink. The whole printer ink jet market, until now,
has been a scam, making you spend an average of $40-$60 buy new print
heads and cartridges for all three colors because one color runs out.
That is like having to replace your gas tank, fuel pump, radiator,
water pump, windshield washer tank and wiper motors, because you ran
out of gas or got too low on radiator fluid. Oh, and by the way,
there are no gauges, or transparent tanks, and no ...UPDATE: "Problem with Canon Pixma ip4000 printer"
I received a brand-new (refurbished? not sure) ip4000 Pixma tonight
from Canon, even though my defective one was two weeks past warranty.
And yes, it came with a new print head and new ink. So, thanks to this
excellent customer service, my opinion on Canon has done a 180:
(reversing my earlier, knee-jerk vow) I will definitely continue buying

Normally it uses BCI3e all the time except when printing photos, so when
photo or glossy paper is selected.
When you print text and business documents with graphics.

Hi! It might be unrelated but I purchased a Canon Pixma ip3000 and found an
article that suggested using the Canon bjc 7000 driver and tried it
although it wont give me full features it does allow me to print using an
otherwise large paper weight give it a go might work.
...Which Printer Should I buy? Canon IP4000, Canon I865, Epson R300
Which is the best printer? Main points below.
1. Accuracy when printing to CD/DVD (My old Epson 900 was a devil to set up)
going off center and needed adjusting.
2. Economy. Although I can get the ink for about the same cost which
printer performs best.
3. Print quality Photo / CD DVD
To put it into perspective here are the best prices I have found for the
printers so far.
1. Epson R300 �84.95
2. Canon I865 �119.99
3. Canon IP4000 �99.99
I have the R300 and love it. I do not love the price of the
replacement ink. I have printed about 200 DVD ...canon pixma ip4000
welps, I had the occasion to print some pics for my mom but unfornately,
it was for rancid gossip involving my cousins. anyways....
the pixma ip4000 did a really good job of printing the pictures on plain
paper under windows98 pmview version and was surprisingly fast (much
faster than the old epson color600 was, that one took forever to print a
color pic). I just wish it were so for the OS/2 version of pmview. it
wasn't very good. it looked like a cross between 16bit & 256bit colors

Are these two the same printers except the 4600 being the next year's

I think you will find them to be very similar.
There is, however, one significant difference.
The 4500 ink tanks are readily available from a range of suppliers as
the chips on the
ink tanks have been " cracked."
If you buy the 4600 you are currently tied in to buying only genuine
Canon replacement ink tanks.

I was wondering if there was any word on when a driver will be developed
for this printer. I just bought this printer but it (obviously) only
comes with Windows and Mac drivers. I checked the CUPS website and
couldn't find anything. The printer is recognized by my Fedora 10
machine as I do have it physically setup properly with the USB and power

Broke with tradition AND sense. Bought somethine other than an HP this

used primarily for graphics (greeting cards) and text. I will do some photo

I have tried connecting a Canon ip4000 (not R version) to a Hawking

with the ip4000?
...Canon Pixma iP4600 Printer
Does anyone have experience of using this model of USB connected printer
on Iyonix (RISC OS 5.13) ?
So far I have tried with the printer plugged into the Iyonix on boot up.
The computer does its POST, but stops at the "no keyboard" message and
sits for a good minute, before continuing to the Desktop, but without any
extras loaded (I have a Filer window open, and AppDoc load on boot). After
a further half minute or so the hard disc runs and boot completes.
However the machine locks up almost as soon as I try to do anything, such
as open a directory, or run !Printers, and I end up hi...
