SOURCE: prints black on test page, but not when a job is sent to the printer

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

SOURCE: Canon i960 will not print in black ink

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.

SOURCE: canon pixma iP8500 printer will not print any black ink

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.

Print Black images with any color piece (ex. page with black text and one red letter in up-right corner) 40-50 pages in one job.
Are you see a double black image?
No: Fuser trouble on high-speed.
Yes: Replace the Drum Unit (Black).

My canon MP145 three-in-one printer cannot print because the coloured ink has finished. How can i continue to print using black ink only?


Hi joyce2020
Some printers do print even if one cartridge is empty.
This is what you have to do. Goto the print setting page. you will find check boxes for Print in Color OR Black& White.
Usually, the color box is checked. When you check the box for color, you can print in black and white as well provided the text is written in B&W. If you check the B&W, the printer will print everything in black including color text and graphics.

Hope this will work for you.
Good Luck

My printer only prints pictures, no text.


Sounds like your black pigment (PGBK-5) cartridge has clogged up the printhead or similar.

You could try running a single Deep clean on the that colour alone (use Right click printer > printing preferences > maintenance tab > Deep Cleaning)

If that doesn't work you will probably need to either:
- clean the printhead (see this thread)
or
- replace the printhead/cartridge

Hope that helps.

Canon i560 won't print black text anymore


I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

Printer will not print black ink


Chewbacca08's solution gave me an idea. I set the print setting to photos paper (even though I was trying to print on plain paper) and IT WORKED. It's worth a shot before you trash a perfectly good printer.
