Problem with printing black and white photos


Probably what happen is that you are printing black and white but you have your printer on color mode, try to set the printer to grayscale or black and white before print. The printer is tring to get the black and white by mixing all three color, that is the most comon way of make black, so, when one of the color is missing you see those red lines.
Also you will solve the problem replacing the color cartridge.

Won't print black when set for plain paper


Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

Black cardstock


There is no white ink in the printer. White needs to come from the paper.
The inks in your printer can only make your paper DARKER, and you can't get any darker than black.

The black, print quality when printing a document on white paper, is not 100%


Few questions, are you running true Canon Inks and refills are always a off black not a true canon black!

Have you tried doing nozzel check, does the top black squares all come out ok? if so it could be down to the paper and the inks!
if you use 80gsm paper does it print ok?

Hope this helps

PRINTING ON BLACK PAPER


That would require a very special "white ink" print cartridge for your printer. The regular color ink cartridges won't do this, since they can only make the black paper "black-er" when it prints ink on the paper. You may want to ask the manufacturer (Canon) if they make a special "white ink" cartridge for that printer, or know of someone who does. Your only other option is to make a "negative" print image in Photoshop, or a similar graphics software application, and then PRINT the black ink on white paper... which will then leave everything you want to "print white" as an unprinted area on the white surface of regular paper. (Note: with such heavy printing you would want probably want to use a heavier grade of paper, such as 28# or 60#.) This will use a LOT of ink, but it may be the only way you can accomplish your goal. Hope this helps...

Trouble printing to photo paper


The paper you print on is not relevant. What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black. On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended. So what can you do? Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.

The black and white does work


Your printer canno read the black cartridge because it was not sat down in it's proper position. Do not be afraud to click it into place, consult your manual on proper cartridge refilling, and positioning. If it is not quite in and you try to print, no black will come out of course. Once right in place try and print again.
