Canon MP530 not recognizing PGBK cartridge

Suddenly new black replacement cartridges are not working or recognized by printer. The lights are on (NOT blinking), print head cleaned and deep-cleaned, PC restarted, printer and USB were unplugged. Nozzle pattern doesn't print any PGBK lines.
Using rebuilt cartridges and not Canon, but haven't had trouble with them before.

    I have the similar problem. I cleaned the printhead using rubbing alcohol, but it does not work. I guess it is time to call Canon customer service.

    I've used both Canon and Staples and can't get mine to print. The printer dialog shows the cartridge is full, but nothing happens.

    Same as reported. Other test patterns are perfect.

SOURCE: bottom half of pgbk band doesn't print

First try doing a deep head cleaning or two; if that doesn't work, try removing the printhead and looking at the bottom of it to make sure there is nothing blocking the small ejection holes on printhead, reinstall the printhead, do the alignment again an that should do it, if not you may need a new printhead.

1. UNplug printer at outlet or power strip & wait a full minute.
2. Plug back in and check if ok now.
=========
1. remove cartridge; look for "spit wad" stuck onto the cartridge or in the cartridge cavity in printer.
=========
1. If of the above neither works; use a new cartridge, but don't discard old one.

SOURCE: the pgbk on the Nozzle Check Pattern doesn't print

It means you either need a new printhead, QY6-0061-000, or the purge assembly is worn out and not cleaning or priming the black properly. You can change the printhead but the purge assembly is a shop repair.

SOURCE: I have problem with print-head

if the clogging is worst then the deep head cleaning wont help.the head will need to be cleaned up manually and the waste ink pad in the printer should be cleaned too. this is covered normally in printer servicing.give special instructions to clean the head properly while you hand over the printer for servicing to any local tech. head cleaning and servicing will solve the issue
This will help. Thanks, please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Printer does not recognize cartridge which was good yesterday


Hi

Tough one here but try removing / replacing cartridge, failing that try new replacement as each cartridges have their own electronic chips. I assume you are using genuine canon carts.

Printer wont recognize new or old cartridge


Use a Q-Tip and some clean water to clean the contacts behind the cartridge in the printer and on the cartridge itself. Then use a pencil with a clean eraser to polish the contacts. Be careful not to touch the part where the ink comes out of the cartridge.

Also, are you using Canon ink or third party?
