Mp860 black cartridge problem


You do a nozzle cleaning from the maintenance program and it should correct the problem. Also make sure the rollers are clean as well as to not cause streaking.

I am having trouble with my Canon MP530 printer. I can't print red. All my pictures or documents that should be red come out pink. I changed the large black cartridge today and the yellow as they ran...


If you are sure there is still ink in the cartridge try the procedure below:-

Ink may be new, but their nozzles may be blocked; depending on manner of storage. To be sure apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you still have a good amount of ink in it and the nozzle is not blocked. If not blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nozzle is blocked. To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so that the nozzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nozzles, the procedure may be repeated over to get results.

Good luck & God bless!

The PGBK cartridge doesn't print anything


Do a selftest on the printer. If the Selftest prints out something, uninstall the printer Driver and reinstall it again. If it still did not work checkin the printer to a qualified technican to have a look at it.

My printer will not print in color even though I have all new ink cartridges. Only a little yellow appears on the page.


It sounds like you are using aftermarket or refilled cartridges. There can gum up the nozzles and restrict or block the ink. To clear the sensors and nozzle, install new OEM cartridges, run deep cleaning a number of times (at least 3 times), and then the alignment utility.
Aftermarket/refilled cartridges do not always meet the manufacturer's specifications for quality. Try cartridges from LDproducts.com for your printer. I've never had a problem with their aftermarket cartridges. If you can, I would return the failing cartridges for replacement or refund.
Please rate this solution. Thanks.

Canon mp530 - colors print dull and faded


The ink tanks may be full but sometimes the pins that connect the cartridges to the printer may have dried up ink on them preventing the ink from flowing. You can try to swab these with a bit of rubbing alcohol on a Qtip and letting it dry for moment or two. I would strongly suggest doing a couple of deep cleanings first and try test printing of the individual colours separately in a program such as paint to see which colour is affected.

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.
