Question about Canon PIXMA MP190 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I installed a new cartridge yesterday, and after printing about 20 pages, it's emptry! This is the second cartridge that has ran out right away.
Couple of things to concider:
1. are you using the best quality for your print? If so take it down to normal or draft mode.
2. Are you using a remanufactured or refilled cartridge? If so the company may not have filled it completely.
3. Research is saying on a full cartridge (about $25) you should get close to 100 pages. This depends on what you are printing and quality of the print.
4. If this is a new cartridge not a refill, take it back to were you bought it and complain. They will usually replace it.

SOURCE: Black ink
The PGBK cartridge is a pigment black ink, while the others use a dye for coloration. The pigment black is used when printing text and other documents. The dye ink is used when printing photos and other colored documents. The dye black is used in conjunction with the color (dye) inks to provide tinting and color gradation, and therefore is not used nearly as much as the pigment black unless you use your printer only for printing photos.
If you're printing text and documents, you will need to buy another pigment black (PGBK) cartridge.

I just came up with the same problem. But if you keep pressing the right most button (the red one) for 5 seconds the message "replace ink cartridge" disappears and then you can use it as a scanner.

You need both. One is pigment and the other is dye. One is used for photographs and the other for non-photographs - but it's the printer that decides which one to use.
All Canon printers (to my knowledge) will stop working if any one ink cartridge is empty. This is to prevent damage to the print nozzles. The ink itself is the cooling medium for the hot nozzles.
