Question about Canon PIXMA MP970 InkJet Printer
Tried cleaning, deep cleaning, and print head alignment. With auto alignment, get message "Auto head align has failed". Manual head alignment never prints the black. Removed print head and cleaned with 50/50 ammonia and water then performed deep cleaning a number of times along with print head alignment but still no PGBK. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated?

This is simply a case of the ink tanks not being pressed in hard enough. They do click in, as the manual instructs but, unless they are fully pressed in top and bottom, this problem occurs. It's a shame that the Canon manuals and even the support centre do not mention this simple solution.

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill

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.

My MX700 is 1 year old and I to have issues:
2) Says it's out of paper when there is paper in it. Shutting off an Turning on usually helps
3) Feeds multiple pieces of paper at once!
