Question about Canon PIXMA MX850 Multifunction Printer
I was working on the Pixma mx850 for 3 weeks now. I have found that you need to reset the using back to factory default. On the display look for the "printer head" cleaning and alignment. Go through the steps that it gives you for printer head cleaning. Print a test page. have you tried to copy in "black/whte" and not color? that will use the large black and not the small black cartrdge. Try a couple of black circles in "paint" if your running windows XP. make a test page of your own and print it.

It usually is because it either cannot use the black ink or it is empty. It will try to make black with the other 3 colors which turns out to be closer to purple than black. Try reinserting the large black ink tank. Try a Black deep cleaning maintenance and see if the black prints when you then print an ink test (Nozzle Check ).
