Hello.

I recently tried printing on discs using my IP4200 pixma printer. No matter what I do I just can't get it to print BLACK. everything that's supposed to be black turns out as dark green.

The problem is NOT ink-related - all other non-disc prints (on regular/photo paper) turn out okay withall thesettings I tried.

I'm using ORIGINAL canon ink. just when I print using the "Printable disc (recommended)" or "Printable disc (other)" profiles - the black turns out dark green.

I also tried printing using the disc profile and the cd-tray with a regular paper shaped like a cd - the problem remains. So the problem can't be the printable surface either, because the same paper prints fine using other profiles. I also tried messing with the color settings. I've even set the color to highest intensity and dark image.. but still - the black is just dark green.

I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

Okay, new discovery -

I did 2 deep cleans and printed a nozzle check and something is fishy.

In the attached file is a picture of a ip4000 nozzle check page I found online -

in MY nozzle-check print:

the black bars near where it says "3eBK" -- looks okay.

the black bars near where it says "6C", "6M", and "6Y" -- appears GREENISH.

I know the ink is actually black in both black cartridges. What could be the problem that it produces dark green instead?

Please help!
