Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.
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.

SOURCE: MP530 PGBK not recognized
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.

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.
