Canon printer not printing black text on printout

Hi- I have an 8 year old Canon Multipass C5500 that has worked just great until today. I ran out of black ink last night. I put a new BCI-21 Black cartridge in today and the alarm still comes on to change the cartridge. I turned it off and tried to print anyway. My print out prints the color, but not the black text. I looked in the T/S part of the manual and cleaned the head several times as suggested, but this did not fix the problem. Not sure what to do next. Can you help me? Thanks-

SOURCE: black not printing

Excellent solution. May want to run the maintenance clean head action from the printer menu on the printer and also print a horizontal line test page to make sure the heads are aligned properly.

SOURCE: black not printing, other colors fine, replaced cart and deep cleaned several times, no result

Try wiping the print head with a soft damp cloth - it works for me.

Hi There,

I believe that the printer head which feeds the ink dried out and clogged at the ink dispersal point. I'd suggest you take it to your nearest printer service capable repair center and just have them unblick the clog.

You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the black ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.
