MP600 won't print black

I see this is a common problem, but am not really sure what to do as far as the cleaning suggestions. How do I get my black printing again? All cartridges have been replaced with new ones.

Martinb75,

Go into printers from your start menu or through the control panel. Locate your printer and right click over the top of it. At the bottom of the scroll down you will see "properties". Open this. In the lower part of the first tab you will see preferences and print a test page. Open the preferences. The last tab is the maintenance tab. in here you will find two types of head clean. use the general clean (the first button) first. Print a nozzle check to see if this has fixed your issue. if not, repeat once more. If no success do a deep clean and print the nozzle check.
If after this you still have no luck, allow the head to park and allow to sit for 24 hours. check and clean again. If still no luck, your print head will require replacement and will need to go to your local canon service center,

My MP600 will not print documents. It will print a scanned document i.e. scan the doc and print from the image. It will print a webpage. It will print a copy it makes but it is blue instead of black....


If colours are faded I would recommend running several cleaning/deep cleaning cycles to try and pull through the colours. It is difficult to say without seeing the print quality, but it sounds like an issue with a partially blocked printhead within the printer.
The printing in blue would suggest to me that one of the blacks in your printer is blocked. Were all 5 colours present on the nozzle check?

The large black ink tank is empty but the small black ink tank is full, why won't the printer print from the small ink tank?


The small black ink is only used for printing photos and must be used in addition to the large one. If the large one is empty, it will not work.

Incorrect color when printing Pixma MP600


Hi! You may need to run MAINTENANCE head cleaning. It may be clogged thats why its not printing in color correctly. Be sure that you have good set of cartridges for if one is empty it usually malfunctions. Hope this helps and have a good one!

CANON MP600 - NOT PRINTING IN BLACK INK


I have had the mp600 for 3 years - worked fine on a couple of different pcs. I switched to a mac and encountered 2 issues - scanner stopped working and above problem of no black ink. The newest driver (just google mp600 driver) fixed the scanner issue. The ink issue has a work around - select non plain paper in the media quality tab, instead use any photo paper setting. Finding this area in a mac can be tricky - in the mini print options window you have to click the small chubby arrow and you will then be given a list of options including quality and media. Presto, black ink returns but probably uses more ink and takes longer to print. I have not found a more elegant solution as you have to select this non default paper option every time.
