    Dang...I am having the EXACT same problem. The black worked FINE before. I've only used the printer 2 (count them, 2!!) times. Now, it's kaput. Yes, I bought a new tank and no, that didn't help. In fact, it prints white where the black should be. ugh. HELP!

Had this same problem with my 5 year old MP830. It was the print head. I bought a new one from http://groveofficeproducts.com. Works like a charm.

Canon mp830 cannot print is printing only in color. Put in new black BK8 and PGBK5, but just prints blanks


Could have ruined the head from not proper cooling from the ink supply.
Try to clean the head using 8 oz. hot water (preferably distilled) and 1 oz. ammonia.
Make sure the intake ports are submerged for 30=45 minutes. Dry the head completely and re-install.
Gently tap the PGI5 BLK on a towel and make sure ink comes out.
If so do a deep clean and a head alignment page.
If nopt you may need a print head that I can supply.
Thank you fo0r using Fixya

My PGBK ink cartridge is not printing. I just replaced it. Everything else is working fine. I have done several cleaning jobs on it and the test prints that I print don't even show PGBK or the black...


the PGBK ink cartridge might not be getting a good connection you might have to remove it and check the connections or clean the connection bars

You might have to uninstall the printer restart your computer then reinstall your printer

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you

might see a yellow? ! question exclamation mark or a red X this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click you will have options to update driver,disable,uninstall or select properties again you will have the similiar options also you can troubleshoot the device
hope this helps you

My epson stylus cx6000 has stopped printing black. I've cleaned the print head, changed the cartridge and it still won't print black. What else can I do?


Be sure you are using genuine epson ink. Epson printers are "smart" and will not allow generic ink to work properly. Even after you replace a generic with a genuine it may take several print outs and alignments to get it to print again.

MP830 PGBK does not print, tried new cartridges and usual cleaning etc, nothing. Bought new print head but still does not print. Other colours Bk,Y,M,C all ok. Have tried 'Auto Alignment' but this fails...


the printhead probably needs to be taken out of printer and cleaned.

just pop the ink cartridges out, then remove the print-head, fill a sink full of warm water, and swirl the print head around in the warm water. Blow through the color slits on the print head into the sink full of water it will get messy. empty the sink full of colored warm water.
rinse and repeat till your are satisfied its clean. dry it off with a cloth towel you don't care for, because it will get messy and covered in ink.
put your printer back together and it should work...it may take a few times...but i got my printer 'PGBK ink cartridge' working again doing this. or you can spend 100 bucks and buy a new print-head...my printer is a mp830 it came apart easily no tools or force needed... good luck and don't break your printer...its easy.

Canon PIXMA MP500 New Black ink cartridge produces no ink


If you don't use it very often the black could have dried in the printhead, and you will need a new one. Another possibility is that the purge unit is not cleaning and priming the printhead properly. I have seen several defective purge units. For 1 year it can be replaced under warranty, after that it is a $90.00 repair job in the shop.
