Probably needs to be cleaned the black is usually the worst for this. see if you can get to the bottom of where you put the cartridges in and use a little rubbing alcohol adn a Q-tip to get the build up off the jets it won't hurt anything as long as you don't break anything. It may take a bit to get all the gunk, it can be very messy there. hope this helps

I need a new print head


Check if the service station proper covers the black nozzles when the printhead is parked. Sometimes the mechanics change its position and the printhead dries out.
Try to unclog the nozzles with very hot water. Sometimes it helps. The new printhead is very expensive and you may want to buy a new printer instead.
Remove the printhed, put it in a bowl with the nozzles down and fill with boiled water until the nozzles are covered. Wait 15 min and dry the electric contacts with a dry napkin. Good luck!

This Canon MP530 will print a nozzle check with no problems. It will color copy with no problem. No ink cartridge lights are on. It will not print a report or copy in black. What's wrong?


On your nozzle check, do you see the grid at the top (indicated by red arrow in picture below)? If you don't see this, your pigment black nozzles aren't working. The black bar at the bottom is from the dye black nozzles (small black tank). You may have either plugged nozzles or a bad print head.

Installed all new ink cartridges and now poor printing results


Dear louis,
You have done right thing by cleaning the print head. If the print head still clogged after repeatedly cleaning, It seems that the print head need to be replace with new one. Make it sure by printing nozzle check pattern. Is it good or not?.
Regards,

Mp530 won't print black


Are you sure you removed every trace of the orange sticker? Is the light to the cartridge flashing or off?
