And now my Cyan is gone :he At this point I think it might be printer head/something wrong inside the cartridge as Ink Tubes are all full. Looks like Canon Service it is.
Edit: NVM, it came back after a cleaning.
In my case I think the magenta part was dried out or clogged heavily as it wasn't printing even a single speck and printer was idle for a week or two and there might have been air in the magenta tube. My local Canon service station suggested A deepclean followed by ink flush but since deepclean...
Thanks, this clears up many of the doubts. Never knew that Canon Inks had some sort of cleaning agent in them that needed 24hours to sort the issue out, so I did twice at midnight and another two deep cleaning in the morning.
I always had slight air bubble issue in my printer, maybe the...
Exactly, I am also facing the same issue. Mine is a Pixma G2010. I have to print every week or else the ink tubes get full of air and the nozzles then clog up.
Now I am thinking of selling off this printer and getting a Laser or Cartridge based printer as the headache I am getting with this...
Normal head clean didn't solve the issue sadly, so had to resort to deep clean. Btw 2 of them Deep Cleans were today at 1AM and 2 were today at 11AM.
Will keep it in mind next time not to do frequent Deep Cleans.
I have a Pixma G2010 and suddenly after a week or so it stopped printing Magenta colour (Not even a micro dot of magenta), the black colour also has a white line of some sort as per the nozzle print page but that maybe because of the no magenta colour.
I have attached nozzle test of FEB 2023...
Why do my photo prints from G2010 become green after a month of printing?
This never happened with my Canon E510 Printer.
I printed some photos using my EOS 600D and stuck them on my wall and all turned green after a month or less. They are never exposed to sunlight.
I use Kodak 200GSM...
True. Even after flushing the black tube empty and then refilling with ink it still developed bubbles after a week or so. Their QC in the Vietnam plant is not so good if you ask me. Saw some reviews where the rubber stopper on the inktank was missing.
Only thing that made me take a Canon is...
To be honest I should have researched before getting an inktank. The maintenance and all other things are a real pain for a lazy person like me.
The older E510 doesn't have anymore replacement supplies and refilling doesn't work that well for it so had to take this one as this one was the only...
Can anyone please tell me why the Nozzle check quality is lower when printed from Printer control panel vs when Printed from Windows?
The black grids are not clean lines in Printer Control Panel Print, whereas they are clean in the Windows Print. If anyone wants the full res images I can...
How safe is the using a medical syringe method to suck back ink through the delivery tubes?
The process uses a syringe which is attached where the CISS meets the cartridge and ink is pulled through the tubes using the suction of the syringe. There is a certain lock and unlock process...

Just posting an update regarding the air bubble issue.
Looks like the problem was indeed caused by moving the printer and sloshing of ink in the cartridge causing an air leak. As a result of this the ink moved back into the ink tubes from the cartridge...
Got hold of some non ColorLok 80gsm paper after searching for 2 days. Prints dont soak up but take a few more seconds to dry out when compared to the 70gsm, maybe because the surface is a bit smoother and paper is bit thicker on the 80gsm.
I have some 100gsm laser+inkjet paper from Cedar but it is a ColorLok Licensed paper. I used them sparingly as they were a pain to find. Should I just use them for my daily printing needs? Will constant use of the 100gsm cause any issue in future like premature failure of the feed rollers?
Actually it was the opposite lol. The older one was cheaper and newer one was from a more known brand. Anyways I think it maybe because of the smoother surface allowing the ink particles to move faster before drying.
Actually the previous brand I used had much less visibility from backside.
Don't know what happened what's up with this new ream of paper I bought. Both are 70gsm with the only difference being that the previous brand had a rough texture on the surface and the newer one is more smooth.
Hi just got a new ream of 70gsm paper and I am seeing that it is soaking up more ink than the previous 70gsm brand.
The newer brand has a smoother feel to it and is a bit yellowish tint.
The older one was a rougher texture and was white.
All prints are done in draft mode and contain text only...
