Question about Canon PIXMA MP970 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My MP970 only prints letters in black if I change type of paper from normal to f.i. photopaper. Colours from from Photoshop are awfull but from Picassa perfect. Colour copying is perfect. Canon wants to see the printer which costs me the price of two. Who can help? Thanks. Rob - Holland

SOURCE: canon mp 730 prints colours BUT NO BLACK

Sounds like you need a printhead, QY6-0064-000 around $40.00. The only other thing that could do that is the purge assembly if it's not cleaning the black part of the printhead properly.

SOURCE: my canon iP4500 will not

If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

My canon iP4500 will not use black ink on photopaper. If I tell it the paper is plain then it prints fine. If I tell it the paper is any type of photopaper the colours are great but there is no black ink...

What does it mean when it says change k cartridge


There should be four ink cartridges inside the printer: Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK.

While monitors build colours out of three emissive (active) base colours, red, green and blue, printers usually build them out of four absorbing (passive) inks, so-called CMYK. The black is referred to by its last letter to avoid confusion with Blue.

On most printers, since they usually print in black ink over white paper (and black is used to darken all other colours), the K cartridge is either bigger than the others, or needs to be replaced more often.

My printer has problems printing dark colours. When printing pictures or text, it leaves horizontal lines on black only. I have a continuis ink system which has lots of black. Any ideas?


Try changing the print paper type to something other than plain paper. Use the matte paper setting, or the photo glossy. The printer will lay down more ink at these specialty settings.

Dell 3000cn keep getting load mpf when i try to print but there is paper in the tray. how do I get it to recognize the paper. I've changed nothing on the computer but this just started to happen! please...


I have a Dell 3010n myself, and a few times I did run into that "Load MPF" issue.
1.) Before printing a document, please check and see the properties. i.e. Kind/type of paper, which tray, or if printing envelopes or any other document than a regular 8 x11 paper. Putting all the tray and paper type selection on "Auto" can be very helpful.
2.) On the printer itself, there is a menu button where you can configure the type of paper, i.e. regular 20 llb. copy/print paper, glossy photopaper, thicker paper - after you place a fresh load on the paper tray and slide it in, usually it will ask you which type of paper you just loaded. Make sure it is the same settings as the document that you are trying to print: i.e. if document settings on computer was set to print on photopaper and you have regular paper on the tray, the printer will do a "Load MPF".
The paper sensor on it is amazingly (for a Dell, that is) sensitive and it can differentiate across a lot of paper types/thickness. If you have several computers and user across a network, and there are several paper-type settings done on the printer itself, this "Load MPF" issue will present itself more often.
In my case, it's simply because the person who recently changed the paper-type to glossy cover paper from some user who previously printed to a transparency forgot to revert MPF/Tray 1 to regular copy/print paper. Most cases, the printer setting on the PC has been left to print on to a transparency by default, so even if I stack the tray with copy paper to the hilt, it still will do "Load MPF".

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.

Photos print green Photos print green on photo paper, but fine on regular paper stock. I have the HP 7960 same problem...anybody know how to fix this? Is there a type of photopaper that won't react this...


In the printer settings choose the type of paper, card, or the various photo papers that are listed. This must be selected to get the best quality for each project you are doing weather it is just normal text or quality photos, the both require different print settings. Usually by using the automatic setting does handle most settings but dont bank on it.

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.
