**Repeat from previous post. Would not print black. I went through all the troubleshooting of cleaning the printhead several times. The Nozzle check (found under Printing Preferences/Maintenance tab) kept coming out without the PGBK section (Black) printed on it. All the colors printed. If your see any of the colors missing, it is probably the same problem---it needs the Print Head replaced.
Part # QY6-0061-010. I was able to find it at Canyon Computer Supplies in Phoenix, but you can also order them via the internet from multiple outlets. Mine cost $59.57 with tax...much cheaper than a new printer. The replacement is very easy...Canon has info on how to do it at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=12804#SupportDetailAct ...if the link doesn't get you right there, search MP830, Support & Service, then search print head & you should find it. Once you remove all the print cartriges (printer ON), the gray lever on the left side lifts up and releases the print head...which is the unit that houses all the print cartridges. I just put the new print head in, replaced all the ink cartridges, did a nozzle check...and it worked!! I love fixing things myself.

Check the cartridge.

  • Go to printer properties and service the cartridges.
  • Check the driver settings.
If does not work:
  • Try lightly streaking the ink surface across a damp paper towel to see if the cartridge(s) are really dry.

It could be that your cartridge needs cleaning. On your computer, go to Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark 6100 Series > Lexmark Solution Center. Go to Maintenance tab > select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Try to print your document again and determine if the problem is fixed.

No black ink is appearing on paper


If this is an old printer. The nozzles might be clogged. A Q-tip with a little alcohol might get some of that dried ink out. Be careful it could get messy. Also see if your printer has a built in cleaning test. you might have to access the test from the printer tools on your computer.

Won't print black when set for plain paper


Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

MP 780 DOESN'T PRINT


Try printing something in a colored font, like red or green and see what happens. This printer uses two black ink cartridges. It uses the larger one for black text printing. If it is dry, blocked, or damaged, your text (usually black) will not print. Changing to a color font will rule that out.

Good luck.

Leaking black ink on printed pages


Hi, please attempt to run a numerous blank paper through the printer. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains or streaks are still present, the printer may need service.
