Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lost B&W printing

For some reason, my Canon i560 has stopped recognizing the black ink. I cannot print letters anymore, but the color one's seem to still work. If I try to clean ( I did) no luck. If I try nozzle cleaning, it works, but if I try to do the print head alignement, the black part does not appear. Very confused and I welcome any input. Thanks Marc

Hi marc, it sounds like the normal clean has not eliminated the clog you may have in back printhead. I need to know if you refil your own cartridges or not to be specific, but basically you need to remove the black ink cartridge, and clean the printers heads yourself, and right down where cartridge sits wth cotton buds and proper cleaning solution. Wipe the surface of cartridge if it has the printhead attatched (some printers have the printhead on them, some have it on the cartridge. Replace ink, reset black ink level, cancel the alignment for now, go straight to printing. Print a test page and see how it goes.

Canon i560s prints all colors except black

I had a similar problem and found out that you have to specify printing on plain paper. If you choose paper other than plain paper, it will make the black from other colors. Check also that all of your cartridges are seated properly. My magenta was not pushed all the way down so I got green instead of black ink when it mixed the colors to make black.

Prints black on test page, but not when a job is sent to the printer

make all your printer settings to default. If any problem in that simply uninstall & re-install the driver.


If still no good, your black cartridge might have dried-up
