Try going into Control Panel and click on printers. Normal 0 when the next window comes up, Click on MAINTENANCE, the Properties page will come up and this is where you can do the NOZZLE check/clean and other functions. The NOXXLE is more than likely clogged from lack of use and needs to be cleaned. It might take several times to clean it. Hope this helps. Bud

My canon pixma mp620 won't print black ink but other colors print ok.


Does printer have 2 black cartridges, 1 large 1 small? if so, the small black one and colors only takes care of the color print jobs and the large black one, the main black and white jobs. Make sure you don't have an empty large black cartridge.

Why I can't print in black and white.


It may want the cartridge in to protect the heads. Put an old empty on in. Make sure to go to Start, Settings, Printers. Select the Pixma and go to Printing Preferences. Once here set the COLOR OPTIONS to Grayscale, print black ink only.

Hope this workds for you.

good luck

I use my MX700 only for black & white matters. It sometimes refuses to operate, informing me that my color cartridges have run dry. How do I overcome this?


Unless you have chosen to print in "true black" where only the black ink cartridge is used, your printer automatically will use some inks from the color cartridge to make black. (The reason given is so that your color cartridge will not dry out and cease to function when you do need it for color).

You did not provide your operating system. If you can find your printer name listed in "Control Panel" (usually in "Printers and Faxes"), right click the name and choose "Properties". See if you can find an option to print only using the black ink cartridge.

I hope this helps!

Can i print black and white text only when colour cartridges are empty but black is full on an ip14300?


you can make a selection from the File->Print option of your word processor or whatever package you are using. it is your command that sets the printer to B&W or color. If your Black ink finishes then the printer even if set to color will print black as near black with color inks.

My printer has an almost full black cartridge but will not print.


Check the ink lines, the printer head might be clogged, If thats not fixing anything then check your printer settings on the computer and remove the color option. Changing it to black and white can somtimes just be from color, not just black.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge


A part solution is print/properties/maintenance/ink cartridge settings/select black only.

You do initially have to buy another color cartridge but you won'thave to buy another expensive color cartridge again in the future.
