Try a few print head deep cleanings if that does not help then you could try soaking the print head in a shallow plate of hot distilled water. Soak the tip of the print head only in no more than 1/8th to 1/4 inch of water.

You need both. One is pigment and the other is dye. One is used for photographs and the other for non-photographs - but it's the printer that decides which one to use.
All Canon printers (to my knowledge) will stop working if any one ink cartridge is empty. This is to prevent damage to the print nozzles. The ink itself is the cooling medium for the hot nozzles.

SOURCE: The black ink won't print on my canon iP5200.

Try removing the cartridge and cleaning the cartridge contacts in the printer with a cotton swab dampened with isopropyl alcohol. When the contacts are dry, lightly scrub them with a white pencil eraser (the red ones are too coarse and may cause more problems), then wipe clean with a dry cotton swab.

If that doesn't help, open up the printer and find the other end of the ribbon cable connected to the print head carrier. There is often some sort of locking clamp on that connector. Unlock it, pull out the ribbon cable and clean the contacts on that end, then reassemble. (The lock may be a sliding sleeve around the cable (it only comes out about a millimeter) or a flip-up plate. If there is nothing like that, the cable is a friction fit and pulls out with a small amount of force. Some very cheap printers use a permanently attached connection).

Explanation: It is possible that there is a second drive voltage to the print heads that isn't connecting, but its failure doesn't prevent normal communications to the cartridge using the logic level voltage.

I have a brother DCP-165C and it is not printing black.


Hi,

The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results.

Thank you!!

All colours and black print faded. Black is a


ANSER #1

Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.

If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged.

Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.

If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality.

Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink
tanks.

Note Before performing maintenance
Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action.
Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.

I can't print photo's properly


If you are to go into the printer properties you should be able to adjust the print saturation for your pictures. I am not sure what type of printer you use from your post although if the information I have provided is not sufficient then please respond with the make and mode of your printer and if it came with any software.

My C6280 printer says the black is empty but it is


Dear Sir,

Printer doesn't identify the ink accurately all these are controlled by software only.So it is showing your black cartridge is empty but trace amount of ink actually remained,by this you are getting black and white prints correctly.After the consumption of that trace amount of ink it may print black text as a greenish-brown because printing taking place only by means of color cartridges.So if you observed blurred text or greenish-brown text, now you can replace your ink cartridges.

i think it helps

good luck

Photocopier prints red


You might be running low on black ink and it's not an item when you print from your computer because the settings you are calling for are different. The computer asks you if you want to print normal...to best, etc.

Print result at 1st line ok..2nd line become blur..its alternate till end of printing


Replace the ink cartridge.
The cartridge is so wide that it can print 2 lines at a time, and the upper part of it is probably partially clogged. That's why every 2'nd line is blurred, and the rest is ok.
