    Exactly the same trouble, also red is polluted with black ink.
    May be black ink cartridge not well sealed ? Printing black has low

Won't print black

If it's a Canon cartridge, make sure you remove the tape over the vent hole on top, try a couple of deep cleaning cycles, otherwise you need a new printhead, qy6-0049-000 around $40.00
