First thing to try is check that the cartridge is situated correctly and that the plastic protection film was removed. Go to printer properties screen on on the "services or "utilities" tab, select the Clean Printheads, run it a couple of times. If black starts to come through run test pages until it works. If that fails try a new black cartridge. If there is a clean Nozzles function in utilities, do that as well.

Doing the "clean printhead/cartridge nozzles" multiple times would have cleared clogged nozzles. You can also try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth. If that still won't help, try to replace your cartridge with a different known working cartridge to determine if your other cartridge is faulty.

the ink cartridge is clogged.
somehow during your refill process, air bubbles get in the cartridges.. it is always advisable to pump out the air bubbles using the syringe.
to unclog your cartridge, what you need to do is mix an ammonia with water and soak the cartridge and leave it over night. The next morning after you install the cartridge to the printer, it will print again.

Printer won't print


I have had a similar problem to this: I have had a BJC 80 for nearly 5 years and carried it around with my laptop using Win 98 and a par - par cable. It worked beautifully and successfully - so much so that when i saw a number of ink tanks going at very cheap volume prices in PC World i picked up a lot of them. Changing to an XP meant that i had to keep on using the par to par cable via a docking station but prevented my use of it with my new laptop - so when i brought it out of retirement it gave the blank printing problems yoiu described. By checking some error messages that it expected a black cartridge (which is what was installed) i found that inthe setup the software indicated it defaulted to colour cartridges. By changing this on the computer, it still printed blank pages but by changing the cartridge to colour it sprang into life when the set up asked for colour. I tried 2 other print heads which i had (3-4 years old) but still blank paper when printing to a black cartridge. I am now awaiting a new black print head carrier to see if it makes a difference. When trying with my laptop using XP and a par - usb cable it does not work at all. I have removed the sware driver for the Canon 80 and manually installed the one for the Canon 85 but no luck in printing to par - usb at this time
