I have just put in a new yellow cartridge and it doesn't seem to be working. all the other colours work. I have tried cleaning it and deep cleaning. I've even taking it out to see if something looks wrong. What can i do. How much does a new print head cost?

I have a nearly full color cartridge and the printer will only print black and white.


Run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles, to unclog the ink-jets that shoot the colour-ink onto the paper.

It's probably a blocked jet in the print head but could also be a page registration issue. Try gently wiping the print head with a cotton bud dipped in an alcohol based cleaner

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.


You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

Canon Pixma MP 470 Doesn't Use Black Ink in Photos


if the test page is printing black and colors fine then the problem is with the software. since u r saying that all the softwares are giving same results, i think that the black cartridge may be empty. is this cartridge is a refilled one or else it needs cleaning. try running cleaning cycles two or three times. but don't run more than that otherwise u will lose ink.
if possible clean the nozzle part with a very very soft cloth very lightly with no force applying. do not do this every time other wise the head will be gone.

Can't I print with only one black ink


I have a similar machine ip5000. Currently have a problem getting the big one to print and have posted for a solution elsewhere. If I print withjust the small tank it does some black work i.e. type but it needs the other big tank to give full photo pictures.

If you are just looking to print typing try changing your font collour to a dark blue or other. This gets round the black problem but you will need the 2nd black cartridge for full colour work.

Hope this helps.

Printing Problem


Cleaning cycles use ink. So it's no wonder it got worse, the ink level went down. Are you 100% sure that the black cart is full? they can give a wrong reading on occasion. what makes you think its full? Could be also that you need to replace the head- the part the cart fits into. generally they don't last more than 18 months.] Another possibility is that the black is indeed full, but dry. Put a wet sponge to the nozzle, see if it soaks up a decent amount of ink. Good luck
