    I REPLACED THE BLACK INK CARTRIDGE AND IT STILL WILL NOT PRINT

  • tizzz Oct 12, 2008

    I have exactly the same problem. I replaced both black cartridges, but it doesn't work still. Since the cartridge is not original my pc won't report any information about ink levels

    I also replaced the PGBK cartridge, but it still won't print black. 

  • Anonymous Nov 09, 2008

    I've reinstalled the new software from the Canon website. My problem is similar, except even more strange...it will print black using the print function from web, but not any word processing document (I've tried Word, Pagemaker, and Notepad.) I've replaced both black cartridges (even though there was no low-level warnings). It still doesn't work...hmmm! Any help would be appreciated. BTW: my printer is only about 14 months old.

    Thank You!

Have you installed the full software that came with the printer? If so then it would tell you if the black ink had run out.

Start by replacing the ink cartridge. If you can replace the black only then do so, if not then replace the cartridge that contains black (along with the other colors).

It is quite common for the black to run out 1st, which is why many printers feature a separate black cartridge.

If that does not help then get back to me and we can look at some other alternatives.

    Does the PC say that the black cartridge is full?

My MX922 printer worked well this morning. All cartridges have ink but ALL lights under the cartridges are on and print comes out blank. There are no error codes or anything abnormal displayed


This problem is mainly happens to all inkjet printers. If your printer print blank pages then please at least once go to official site of Canon and check whether there is any printer/scanner drivers update is available or not. If yes then download it. Also check your ink cartridges. Because if there is no print on paper that means your ink might be dry.Sometimes it clog the print head. If your ink cartridges get dry change it. Or you should clean your printer's print nozzle by using printer's control panel. I hope all these suggestions helps you. If doesn't then watch Canon MX922 Manual English

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237


First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.
