Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer

Prints black on test page, but not when a job is sent to the printer

I just hooked up the Canon i560, after it sat for 6 months.  The colors print OK, but the black won't print when I send a letter to the printer.  The color logo on the letter prints OK, but without any black on it, and without black text.  I tried sending different jobs, but no different result.

Under 'maintenance', I did the nozzle check, and the black prints good.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

    Having the same problem as grmack, only my printer had not been sitting awhile. Worked fine one moment, but not the next. Have tried maintenance, and a new black ink cartridge. Still not working.

    I have the same exact problem. Received advice from Computer person at work. Go to Canon website and re-install print driver. No change. Try to print test page from the "Printers and Faxes" properties. Only the Windows color logo prints. No black at all. Only prints black with the test page. Black ink cannot be dried up if it does print on the test page, right?

    I have the same problem! My black ink wont print AT ALL. I've replaced the cartridge with a canon one after I used a cheap $1 cartridge I got online. I've reinstalled the drivers and still nothing. I hope someone has the answer because I dont want to buy a new 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

Make all your printer settings to default. If any problem in that simply uninstall & re-install the driver.

 

If still no good, your black cartridge might have dried-up

My i560 Canon printer prints all colors but not the black ink


after a month of not using the printer, most probably the print head is clogged.. try using the printer utility to clean the print head.. it's under the printer properties.. normally that should resolve the print missing issue...unless your print head is really clogged up...
some would suggest to partial soak the print head onto warm water..but it doesn't work everytime..

Printer not printing


Go to the printer properties and make sure there is not a previous print job. Cancel all print jobs. Then send a test print to the printer.

Stripes on Images only - Text OK


Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.

Color ink runs out too fast


See this link. Type "print using black ink" in the Search box and click the Search button. Select the appropriate option for your computer's OS. Note that you can only do this using plain paper. (I think the printer will still use a little color ink when doing print head cleanings. If you leave the printer powered on all the time, this will reduce the number of print head cleanings.)

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.
