Highly likely that your cartridges are not feeding properly resulting in nozzle checks working for the minimal amount of ink required but fading out when sustained printing is required.
Course of action is multiple:

  1. Purchase a new set of OEM/Original cartridges
  2. Try flushing the printhead using the first technique in this printhead cleaning guide
    Note: Be VERY careful that you dry the electronics, etc... before you reinsert the printhead and turn the printer on.
The original cartridges are necessary because you can't be sure that compatibles will allow ink to flow properly and be exacerbating the problem.
The nifty-stuff forum is a good place for other suggestions as well.

My canon mp530 printer suddenly does not print the complete document. only the colors print and the b/w does not print.


check the status of the black ink cartridge it might be empty or the nozzles are colted and its jam. Try replacing the cartridge.

Canon 5750 Won't print the color, although it's set to do that, and cartridges all have ink in it. I deep cleaned and also ran a nozzle check ... but don't know how to interpret that. A = 0 B = -1 C =...


Hi Sue, first tell the exact printer model, because MF5750 is laser printer B&W, lbp5700 is also laser and doesnt have ink.
Wich ink printer do you have like pixma 5300? pixma 4300?
The 5750 doesnt exist in canon range of printers.

But, by your description you have print head problems or clodged inks or purge unit problems.

IP5000 3ebk problems


Hi,

I had a similar problem. Pages in blue, but nozzle check in black. Tried what you tried. Changed the ink ($). Still no change. Then tried the maintenance option to clean the bottom plate. And now it is working. Go figure.

Color printing


I removed the ink tanks then I removed the print head very carefully.
I rinsed the print head with the cleaner that comes with my refill
bottles, let it dry and carefully reinserted the print head. I "cleaned"
the nozzles and ran nozzle check and it worked fine.

I no longer trust this iP5000 printer for photos so I have purchased a new
Canon iP6700D which is great. I will use both printers...only using
the new one for photos only.

The main thing I have learned from my Canon printers is not to clean
the print heads as often due to that "Absorber almost full" message!
I still like the Canon for the ink capacity and separate tanks.

Your site has been so helpful! Thank you!

IP1000 cannot print black ink


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.
