Re: mp 360

I had exaclty same problem - black not printing - was about to buy a new printer but did the following as a last resort about a month ago - remove the ink cartridges - removed the head and sat it on an a tissue - into the 'well' where the printer cartridges sit I dropped into there a very small amount of water as if to 'wash it through' where the ink would flow, (about a quarter tea spoon) - agitated it a bit - this flushed thru the gaps were the ink goes - I cleaned it all up - dried it with a tissue - put it all back together - it works fine now ! This was a last resort option for me but I guarantee it did work !

Re: mp 360

My Canon multipass mp360 had a problem with printing color. The black would work fine.I thought it was the generic ink that I purchased but when I went back to the Canon brand I got the same results.No color. I came to this site and tried a small amount of water, agitating it a bit dried it out (ink well). I printed something and worked like it was brand new. Thanks bbanker.

Remove cartridges, remove well head from machine, soak the well head cartridge area in alcohol, rinse with water using a hard spray get out the gummed up ink.. Then blow dry and it works new.

Re: mp 360

Have you tried 'clean print head' yet?  Check your printer manual for how to do that for your printer.


Next step, replace the black cartridge.  Either the head is gummed up or it is empty.

CANON mp 830 NOT PRINTING BLACK EVEN THOUGH BOTH BLACK INK CARTRIDGE IS HALF FULL. i have taken the print head out, cleaned the contacts and still the same. what else can I do?

Copy machine makers are notorius for forcing users to use a bit of the more expensive color mixed in with black. I can't print in black, it is called greyscale, therefore it has color in it. If you only print in greyscale, you'll notice your color cartridges going lower over time.

My canon Pixma MP620 wont print in black. All the other colors are fine. I've tried deep cleaning with no results..

Try this;
- Open the document you want to print - Go to file > Print - click properties in the print window - in the menu select 'Maintenance' - in the 'Maintenance' click 'Ink Cartridge Settings' - select Black Only - click OK - click OK - now you can print only using the black ink in the printer.
Hope this helps.

Hi Ihave a MP-500 that prints off color.

You need a new printhead, QY6-0059-000, around $60.00. They do wear out and also plug when you use generic inks.

Colored Ink problem

Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for the Z35. They should be #26 (color) and #16 (black).

Make sure the contacts are clean where the cartridge connects to the printer electrically. A little alcohol wipe is good for this. Clean contacts on both the cartridge and the carrier in the printer.
