Will not print in black

My Canon MP750 will not print text in black at all.  All maintenance checks were carried out properly and all the ink levels are up.  When it prints out the maintenance test patterns however, the black shows up just fine.

    I have the same problem. It prints colours but no black or tekst. Havnt checked if it also do not print black in graphic images. The black prints fine when testing/cleaning options are choosen from the printer directly. No black tekst from notepad either.

    All the cartridges are bought new.

    I had a similar problem, but not as bad. My printer PIXMA MP750, about 3 years old, was omitting some 1/8" thick, lines randomly, in the page. some sentences were readable, some other partially, and some other not readable.



    I cleaned my printer, using the menu button, number two option maintenance cleaning, but I had to be patient, I had to do it, several times, between 5 and 10 times, printing 2 or 3 pages, that were not correct.



    Finally, the pages was printed well, not gradually, but it suddenly printed a clear written page, and other pages also.



    Thank you for the trick, but we have to be patient and clean often.

I had the same problem, I phoned in, and they suggested that it was a problem with my printer head... and it would cost 80 dollars to replace... plus labor. And then suggest, I just replace the machine. They forgot to suggest doing a "deep" clean. They suggested I clean it... which I did... but, the deep clean fixed the problem. I would try that, and see if that works!

Sounds like a driver configuration. Go to control panel, then printers and right-click properties on the Canon icon, try reverting to default print settings or make sure you are not forcing color printing. Lastly, try printing from a simple program such as notepad - maybe your software inputs color to the printer.

How do i clean the printhead on my pixma mp750


If you open the preferences option for your printer there should be a maintenance tab with easy options for cleaning and checking the results. The alternative is to use the menu directly on the printer: 1. Press Menu twice to show "2. Maintenance" 2. The first option is NOZZLE CHECK 3. Press OK This should give you a print showing the current state of each colour. If there are any missing lines in 3eBK or lines in any colours then perform the head cleaning below. 1. Press Menu twice to show "2. Maintenance" 2. Press + to show "CLEANING" 3. Press OK Repeat the nozzle check after each clean. If not improved after three attempts try a deep clean as below (cleaning uses up ink) 1. Press Menu twice to show "2. Maintenance" 2. Press + twice to show "HEAD REFRESHING" 3. Press OK Repeat the nozzle check. If still not printing correctly there are various external solutions available to clean the print head such as http://www.printheadhospital.co.uk/canon-hp-printhead-cleaning-kit.html

Only part of the black text prints.


Is the MP750 a laser? If it is take out the toner cartridge and rock it gently from side to side to re-distribute the toner in the cartridge before returning it to the printer.

I can't print ordinary black text any more


In fact, I ran a couple more ordinary cleaning sequences with a new cartridge in place, and it prints normally now. The only anomaly is that the ink-level panel still shows the 3eBK as being half-full (which is the level it showed when I discarded the previous cartridge).

Canon MP750 not printing


I had a similar problem. I put in a new ink tank but did not seat it properly. When I tried to print nothing came out. Worse yet, apparently it burned out those jets in the print head! A new print head fixed my problem. I got it on eBay and am very satisfied.

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.
