Hello.

 

First, please make sure that the ink tanks are installed in the printer correctly and are in the correct order.  The order from left to right is as follows:

 

CLI-251M
CLI-251BK
CLI-251Y
PGI-250PGBK
CLI-251C

 

Next, a test of your PIXMA MG6620 should be performed.  This will tell us if the printer is working correctly.  To do this, please load letter-sized paper in the PIXMA MG6620 and follow these steps:

 

 1.  Flick the HOME screen and then tap Setup.

 2.  Tap Maintenance.

 3.  Tap Print nozzle check pattern.

 4.  Tap Yes.

 

The Nozzle Check will print.  Please compare your printout to the example that has been attached to this message.  If they differ, please perform a few printhead cleanings.

 

To perform cleanings, please follow these steps:

 

 1.  Flick the HOME screen and then tap Setup.

 2.  Tap Maintenance.

 3.  Tap Cleaning.

 4.  Tap Yes to clean the printhead.

 5.  Tap Yes to print another Nozzle Check and check the results.

 

If the unit continues to print incorrectly, find more help at Contact Us

Hello,

 

I have a G4210 printer and my ink wells all have ink, however, my printer does not print color, only darker and lighter shades of pink. I have had this issue for months!  Help please!
