Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer

Printing in color

I ran out of black ink, though at the time, the color ink was working perfectly.  I replaced the black ink cartridge and the printer now prints in black perfectly.  But the color won't print at all.  It isn't faded or sloppy or uneven.  It spits out a clean, blank sheet of paper, when the previous day, before I replace the black cartridge, it had been perfect.  I have tried cleaning it but that did nothing.  It tells me that I am out of ink, which I find hard to believe.  When I went to Office Max to get a new cartridge and told the man there my problem, he agreed that it could not be running out of ink to stop printing so abruptly.  I have a store extended warrentee but would like to avoid taking it there if possible.

Already performed several head cleaning from the computer and changed cartridges

go for warranty. common for inkjets regardless of make and model to have that type of issue due to internal electronics malfunction.

1. Try a hard reset - unplug printer from power source and PC for about 2 minutes and recplug everything and see.
2. Make sure cartridge is seated properly.
3. Uninstall and reinstall the driver/software. Latest version of your driver can be found at Canon's website.
Any queries or comment, please post back.

Cheers!

Since you already tried cleaning tha colored cartridges the next thing that you can possible do is to remove all the cartridges then turn off the printer for 5 minutes then put the cartridges back in and hopefully now the printer will be able to recognize that cartridges are still not epty, but if still the same thing try to use another colored cartridges if possible so we can check if that will also give the saem results...

Hope that helps.......

Why won't my CX9400F recognize Epson ink cartridges


The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.

I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.

Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.

You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

Color printing


well there is always a way to reset the ink reading from the printer software or drivers thats the first thing i can think about

but did you try to remove the color cartridge and put it back in after turning off and on the printer

i mean take off the cartridge and turn of the printer
turn it on and put the cartridge back

see if that is going to help

and as i said check the printer driver and right click on it go to properties and check the color management bar.

i hope that would be

take care

I have a Canon printer/scanner MP210. I ran out of black ink, though at the time, the color ink was working perfectly. I replaced the black ink cartridge and the printer now prints in black perfectly. ...


First try a hard reset - Unplug printer from power supply, wait 2 minutes and replug and see. If that doesnt work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver and software. Also ensure that the cartridge is properly seated in the holder.

"Expired color cartridge" message blocks black printing - nothing works


Hello merelU. I'm afraid you may have to replace the empty color cartridge as there may be problems with the printer while an expired cartridge is installed on the printer (even though some of the cartridges are still under warranty) and also, HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges.


all the best.
thx

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

Ink


Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.

Black ink won't print at all


Run the cleaning process a couple of times.  The printhead might have gotten sucked dry.

Printing in black & white when color cartridge ran out


I had the same problem. Had no choice but to buy the colors I ran out to make the printer work. In order to avoid future problems and save on color inked I attempted to follow the steps of a previous posting, however, that did not work for me. This is what I had did. Print, select properties, advance, continue, check box - Black ink only. Remember when you decide to print in color you must reset your setting and take out the check from the - Black ink only.
