I had this same problem too and it's so frustrating because you can't do anything without getting that message. I ended up calling Canon at 1-800-828-4040 and they said it was a bad print head (ink tank) and sent me a free replacement. If you're ordering black be sure and specify which black cartridge because we mistakenly got a yellow one as well. Ours was the same in that it was brand new fresh out of the box from Canon, but they say sometimes they just manufacture bad print heads.

Black PGBK doesn't print after switch to Windows7 x64


You have to make sure you're connected to the printer and the drivers are installed. If it's a direct connection to the printer, you solution is as easy as unplugging it, and plugging it back in. If it's a networked printer, then go to start > Devices and printers> and click the add new printer button near the top of the window.

if the clogging is worst then the deep head cleaning wont help.the head will need to be cleaned up manually and the waste ink pad in the printer should be cleaned too. this is covered normally in printer servicing.give special instructions to clean the head properly while you hand over the printer for servicing to any local tech. head cleaning and servicing will solve the issue
This will help. Thanks, please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

I have replaced the black ink cartridge PGBK 5 but now it does''t print black still.


Maybe you have not inserted the cartridge in the right slot, or maybe you haven't fitted it in properly. try moving the cartridge around and see if it clicks.

Hope this helps!

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.

MP600 printer won't use the 8 BK black ink


Quick and easy way to do this is to use the automatic duplex more as this uses the 8K cartridge instead of the 5K.

Thing to note is that the 8K is the photo black and dyebase whilst the PG5 is a pigment ink.

As a general rule you'll want to use the PG5 because it's cleaner and sharper for text while the 8K is much better for photo quality inks...

... and the reason it's used for duplexing? Simple... it dries quicker! .. So, you don't have to wait as long for the page to be pulled back in and you get less chance of smudging...

Hope that helps...
