I just posted and also fixed my problem. Try "deep cleaning" under the maintenance tab. Choose the black cartridge only. Mine only took once to fix but i'd try it 1-3 times before giving up on this solution. It now prints the test page with black and color

I use a no. 4 pan head screw to drill a SMALL hole in the top of the ink cartridge, about 1/4" in back from the front edge, so you can reseal it with the screw when done.
Take a small syringe with a short needle and pull the plunger back.
Insert the needle into hole and hold cartridge in place, IN THE PRINT HEAD, while pushing the plunger down to "pressure feed" the ink into the print head.
Reseal the ink tank with the screw when done.
I think the problem stems from the new or refilled ink tank NOT making a good seal with the print head and then there is a vacuum leak at the joint.
I have done this many times with my various Canon printers with removable ink tanks and it almost invaribly works for me.
I also refil the ink tanks IN THE PRINTER rather than taking them out to help prevent the vacuum break between the print heand and the ink tank.
It also helps to use a photo printing program to "print" out a black, red, blue or yellow page (use whichever color you are having trouble with) to help start the ink flowing again as well.
It does not have to be a full 8 x 10 size, just something about 4 x 6 to help reestablish the ink flow.

replace the black charger... if the copies are coming out strongly black with no white lines then your drum is good... the charger died...

Check the black cartridge and make sure the orange or yellow tape at the rear end is not still attached. If it covers the small hole on the top of the cartridge, the printer won't print black text.
