Try re-seating the ink cartridges. A lot of times, the electrical contacts on HP's ink cartridges do not make a solid connection.

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help


  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    Install black cartridge, but will not print


    Lets do it this way. Follow these steps again carefully and try to install the Ink.

    Introduction
    Follow the instructions below to replace the ink cartridges.
    Replacing the ink cartridges
    1. Verify that the unit is on.
    2. Open the ink cartridge door.
    3. Squeeze the gray tab below an ink cartridge slot to release the gray latch and then lift the latch.

    1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge
    2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges
    NOTE: The ink cartridge areas are color-coded for easy reference. From left to right, the ink cartridges are black, yellow, light cyan, cyan, light magenta, and magenta.
    4. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot to remove it.

    5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
    6. Hold the ink cartridge by the handle and then slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot.
    NOTE: Make sure that the ink cartridge is inserted into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the ink cartridge. The copper-colored contacts should be facing the printer as the ink cartridge is inserted.

    7. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place.

    8. Repeat steps 3 through 7 for each ink cartridge that needs to be replaced.
    NOTE: All six cartridges must be installed. The printer will not work if an ink cartridge is missing.
    9. Close the ink cartridge door. Print a test page.
    If after doing this it does'nt work, then i will ask you to unplug the printer cable from the computer and uninstall the printer driver/Software completely.
    Shut down your computer and restart it.
    Re-install the printer driver/software from the start as you did when you bought it.
    Good luck

    Printer will not print black ink


    Hi please try these steps:::

    Right-click the printer icon, and then select 'Properties'.
    2. Click the 'Maintenance' tab, and then click 'Deep Cleaning'.

    maintdeep.jpg

    3. Select 'All Colors', 'Black' or 'Color' for the print head to be cleaned.

    allcolorsorblack.jpg



    4. Read the message displayed, and then click 'OK'. The power lamp blinks and print head deep cleaning starts. (Do not perform any other operations until print head deep cleaning is complete. Print head deep cleaning takes about 1 minute.)

    IF ABOVE STEPS DOESN'T WORK TRY THESE STEPS BELOW

    Check ink tank vent hole The ink tank requires air to flow through it so ink can move from the reservoir to the print heads.

    1. Confirm there is no orange tape across the top of the ink tank

    2. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (1), it is properly removed.

      ink_tank_tape.jpg

      *BCI-3's shown in this example.

    3. If the orange tape is as shown in Figure (2), remove the remaining tape to the level shown in Figure (1).

    4. Make sure each ink tank is snapped into the printer.

      IF THESE STEPS DIDNOT WORK THEN YOUR PRINTER NEEDS REPAIR(You might need to change the printer head.)
