Cannon Pixma MP780 won't print. Just replaced black ink cartridge, do I have to replace all of them for it to print


Not normally but the black print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

When printing on x3350 with a new cartridge... get lines that are double and some with thick black ink on some letters.


Try to reseat the cartridges into the printer. If problem continues, then maybe the cartridge nozzles need cleaning. Follow the simple steps below on how to clean the cartridge nozzles on the Lexmark X3350:
  1. Go to Start, Programs (Windows XP: All Programs) > Lexmark 3300 Series > Lexmark Solution Center.
  2. Click the Maintenance tab.

I haven't used my canon pixma for a few weeks, came to use it again and the 3e black cartridge won't work, (tried printing from computer and copying) have done a clean, deep clean and nozzle check, even...


The black print head is clogged. The reason why the black is clogged and not the photo black or any colors is that the black is pigment ink and the photo black and colors are dye based ink. The pigment ink is a particulate formulation that binds up when water is evaporated out of the ink. You need to buy a new print head the fix the problem. You can buy a new print head for $75 from precision roller.com.

Printer won't make complete copy. Continues to


Cannon printers are notorious for clogged print heads using aftermarket ink. This has happened to me many times before I switched brands. Cannon won't even replace the printer if they find out that you didn't use Cannon ink. Epson and Brother have very good compatibility with aftermarket ink. Kodak are good as well. I recommend these because the cost per page is lowest with these printers AND I use them with great success.

Re Canon Pixma 4000 black ink is not printing colours are printing Computer not used for 6 months


Canno ip 4000:

please go to the maintenance tab.
This you will find if you try to print anything.
In the print box >go to properties>go to maintence
Here the following Maintenance option are there:
cleaning,
deep cleaning,
Head Alignment,
Nozzle check.
Before your start maintenance, please check whether all print tanks have ink in them
Do a Nozzle check first, this will indicate where you have the problem. Once identified, you can do a color cleanig or a deep cleaning.
Do a Nozzle check again.
You could repeat this cycle about three times or so.

If your problem still persists, then its probably the Print head with jammed nozzles.

Please let me know whether you could solve it.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa.

Does not print black...


I have had this problem with the Pixma ip90. My machine did not like generic ink ie NON Canon. The ink had clogged up the nozzles. It was only when I put in genuine ink and cleaned and cleaned that I slowly rectified the problem.
If this does not work you may need to replace the printer head.
Good Luck
