SOURCE: prints grey not black

if the printing preference is on "draft", it will print everything on light color or grey. check the printing preference, choose text or image instead of draft.

SOURCE: Cannon Pixma MP500- I get a solid black line on

For some reason, the printer is designed to dump ink into the bottom of the tray before feeding on the paper. The paper is then dragged over the ink, leaving the black line. This is a software issue, not a hardware one. I'd advise that you update all of your print drivers, as well as your firmware.

A temporary fix is to clean the rollers and base plate of the printer for ink spills.

Check for any bits of paper or debris that may be caught in the printer. Be careful to feed in the paper perfectly straight, as this printer does not have good rollers, and it will cause paper to break off and cause problems. If any debris has caught or absorbed ink, it will cause the back of the paper to smudge, and you have black lines.

Black Cartridge Not Being Used While Printing


try printing in monochrome mode or gray-scale mode, and specify that it use only the black cartridge.

another problem could be that the head have gotten dry, remove the cartridge, get a soft cotton towel, wet it with a little bit of water, put the head of the cartridge (where the ink comes out from) on the cotton towel, you will see some ink come out of the cartridge, if yes, then put the cartridge back into the printer, and give it a try.

if not try to blow some air into the cartridge as if doing CPR ;) to the cartridge, this will help the ink get out of the cartridge.

if all this fails, get a new cartridge, as sometimes the head could have gotten damaged.

good luck

Printer cant print in black and white


This happend to me also and I finally found out that the printer uses collor cartidges for GRAY printing. The back cartridge is used for BLACK printing ONLY. So if the printer was short of one collor in my case it was magenta (red) the gray parts of BW prints started to be green!!! When I put new magenta cartridge to the printer gray was gray again...

Printer Pixma MX700 will only print in color not black and white?


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
