The issue your having is more then likely the ink cartridge itself or the printhead. Here is the steps in checking and possibly fixing the issue. Step 7 though should be done by a repair tech.

(1) Check that the orange cap or tap is not on the printhead.
(2) Remove the printhead and re-install it.
(3) Perform printhead cleaning, and visually check the test print for non-discharge of ink from nozzle.
(4) Perform head-refreshing, and visually check the test print for non-discharge of ink from nozzle.
(5) Replace the appropriate ink tank.
(6) Replace the printhead
(7) Replace the purge unit.

I have a Canon MP610 printer.The Test page prints ok.The copy fuction is perfect co;our and black and white.When printing from a file saved on computer the text has a sepia tone not black and white....


just chk the properties or the colour cobinations if you choose text for printing out than it will only print text and if it is too dark red that means it is connected with some wrong colour wire

I have a canon ip6700d and only want to use black ink - i only use it for printing documents. How do a set it for this? kind regards Steve


hi steve,
no setting for this. Usage of ink automatically defined by printer base on what you print. If you print black text printer will use black ink only. But colour ink may get low slowly since the printer perform cleaning each time you turn it on.

Printer print blue instead of black


I have the same problem with my ip 5200, when printing a document in plain black.. I spoke to canon support and they suggested to save the .doc document as a txt file before printing. It works. Not too sure if this uses any colour ink to produce the black.

You can also set the printer on grayscale. However, the printer uses the colour ink to produce black.... hence printing in black & white becomes rather expensive.

If anyone has drivers to fix this problem please let me know...

Why is there 2 black ink cartridges in my Canon MP600 printer


On some printers, probably including yours, the black ink will be taken from the reserves in your colour cartridge unless you specifically tell it to do a black and white print on each document, regardless of whether it's printing black exclusively. I wouldn't worry, the black ink in it's own cartridge can also be used for colour photos etc with no detrimental effects.

Won't print black


I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.

Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)

Hope it helps you too
