Bought a cleaning solution for 4.99 from Ebay which is a small syringe and pumps a concentrated cleaning fluid through the nozzle head and removes any excess ink - working fine

My printer won't print Magenta and Black colors. How do i fix this?


If there is adequate black and magenta ink in there, and nozzle clean has no effect, then I think the print head may have failed. You can buy these replacements, eBay lists them, but it may be more economical to buy a new printer, for which you will have a warranty.

Just installed new black ink cartridge for MP 460. The is printing much too light -- what do I do to get it darker?


Some-times it will take quite a number of print outs for the ink to saturate the system. You could try perfoming a quick or deep clean of the ink heads, do this with the aid of the software that came with your printer. Only clean the Black ink if it is too light. A quick or deep clean will draw ink out of the cartridge and place it where it needs to be, which is at the print head.

Take care!

When printing colour, black appears green


A worn out printhead can allow inks to contaminate each other, after cleaning you need to check your cartridges, if yellow is a brown color, you are getting contamination and need to replace the printhead. Black is hard to tell but when cyan gets too dark it's contaminated as well.

My printer only prints pictures, no text.


Sounds like your black pigment (PGBK-5) cartridge has clogged up the printhead or similar.

You could try running a single Deep clean on the that colour alone (use Right click printer > printing preferences > maintenance tab > Deep Cleaning)

If that doesn't work you will probably need to either:
- clean the printhead (see this thread)
or
- replace the printhead/cartridge

Hope that helps.

Canon iP90 Printer Ink Issue


I have had the same issue with my iP90.  I think this results from the black ink nozzle becoming clogged.  I was able to get mine to print by cleaning the nozzles.To clean the print nozzles open the Canon IJ Printer Utility, select the printer from the list of available printers and click the maintenance button.  Then, select a cleaning or deep cleaning cycle.

Trouble printing to photo paper


The paper you print on is not relevant. What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black. On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended. So what can you do? Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.
