Hi there,

You may need to manually clean the inkjet cartridge. Be careful when doing this because inkjet cartridges can be messy; you may want to put a newspaper or paper towel on the work area before you begin. First, open the printer and remove the ink cartridge. Next, use a damp cotton ball to sponge any excess ink off the cartridge. If there is lint or debris on the print heads, remove it carefully. Allow the cartridge to dry, and then reinstall it.

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

Update me for any clarifications

How to set my printer to print black ink only


Option 1 - when printing, go to printer settings and select 'Plain Paper' as the Media Type. If any other paper type is selected, color ink will be used to create black. The pigment black ink will only be used when printing on plain paper. Check the box for 'Grayscale Printing'. If either 'Borderless Printing' or 'Duplex Printing' are enabled from the Page Setup tab, grayscale will be created using a combination of the color (dye) inks to prevent smearing.
I tried this once myself, but the result seemed to be useless for printing photographs.

Option 2 - Using quadtone inks may be the solution. http://www.completedigitalphotography.com/?p=32

Am I able to refill the cartridges (at least the black) for my pixma MO450? If so how is it done?


yes you can refill your catridges if it is used once also by buying printing ink and a syringe from market after that you pull out paper cover of the cartridge and fill the ink in to the cartridge acording to requirement of your cartridge

Why does the printer use one black cartridge and not the other? Is there some way of instructing it to use the left hand one too?


the pixma printers use the large black tank in most modes like text and standard (default) or fast photo printing .. thats most economical when you are using just plain paper .... it will switch to the small black tank only if you select "High" quality mode .. that black matches the nature of the color inks much better and results in really good color pictures if you are using Gloss or Matt high quality photo paper .. you can select the quality level by the following ... when you start to print, a window comes up where you can select which printer you want ... at the right of this window is "preferences" .. click that .. now select the type of paper and "High" quality mode .... now the printer will slow down but will provide really nice results and it will use the small tank black ink instead of the large tank ....the small tank is only used for "high" quality photo prints which is only needed for high quality photo paper .. if you havent tried that yet you might want to get some glossy photo paper (either Canons or Costco has great stuff if you want a lot, like 150 sheets) but most glossy paper will work except colors might need tweeking for some ... print a nice photo in the high quality mode and you should be really impressed .. and you will be using your small black ink tank .. you might want to make the first few pictures small (2x3 inch) untill you are sure everything is the way you want it .. i usually print in the top left corner first .. then reinsert the same paper and try again right next to that .. i do that until i get the colors perfect .. then i print big .. 5x7 or even 8x10 on a new sheet... the high quality mode can be selected for just plain paper and it will use the special black ink but it doesnt result in a better picture .. so no point in doing that unless you want to experiment .. if you never print high quality photos then you will never use the small tank black ink .. it will still be used up eventually because of normal head cleaning the machine does automatically .. ...
grey scaling does not select the special ink unless you select "High" for the quality setting .. then yes you can print using that small tank black ..again it will buy you a lot if you are using High quality photo paper ... almost nothing for plain paper but at least it will allow you to use that ink .. ..

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.

It's the Black Stripe thing When you begin a printing job a 1/2" wide streak of black ink is on the back side of each pieceof paper Canon iP5200R


You need a new ink absorber kit with a guard sheet to stop ink from coming up from the bottom and getting on the exit rollers. It's a major job to remove the print engine and a messy one. Best done in repair shop..

Messy print when using glossy paper.


ok. sometimes the ink for hp if its not photo ink will do that. go to your printing settings/preferences and adjust your ink out put to less and dry time to more. you may have to adjust a few times to get the right balance. if you dont want to set it up for all printing you can also change settings when your ready to print. . just follow same steps when you are going to print. but you have to do it everytime you want to print a photo. also make sure to set your paper selection to glossy photo paper

Epson Stylus C66 inkjet Printer does not print !


Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one. Now run a nozzle check using the status monitor (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back.

The black, print quality when printing a document on white paper, is not 100%


Few questions, are you running true Canon Inks and refills are always a off black not a true canon black!

Have you tried doing nozzel check, does the top black squares all come out ok? if so it could be down to the paper and the inks!

Hope this helps
