Hi

if the black cartridge is genuine and new...take it back. It is faulty.
If the cartridge is refilled or compatible...hold the STOP button for 6+ seconds to disable ink monitoring. This should clear the 'empty' error and the printer should work again.

good luck!

SOURCE: Printing black ink

some canon printers come with a utility program that has a whole host of troubleshooting programs.

if yours came with this, try looking in it for a nozzle cleaner or head cleaner utility.

im thinking the generic ink may have gummed up the printer nozzles.

if that doesnt work, take a Q-Tip and clean the heads and nozzles on the cartridge with denatured alcohol (~$10; pick it up at local pharmacy maybe? i got mine through the local grocery stores pharmacy).

let me know if that works for you. got a couple other ideas.

SOURCE: Canon s200SPx black ink can`t print

Try cleaning the black print head, It might make a difference. You need to do this through your software preferences.

Remove the printer from control panel, under installed printers, then unplug the usb cable and reinstall the printer drivers using printer cd, or download from canon support website.

SOURCE: printer (HP5650) has full ink cartridges.window sez almost empty

That is normal, the printer "sees" the cartridges by their serial number, so when you pop in a refilled cartridge, the printer thinks you have put in old cartridges and continue to show low ink level. When you pop in a new one, with a new serial code, the ink level will reset, showing that the cartridges are full again.
You can try this:
1. Open printer lid so cartridges move to center of carriage.
2. Lift clamp and remove black or color cartridge from the holder.
3. Place cartridge on table with copper contact strip facing you.
4. Carefully place a strip of clear plastic tape over the four contacts on the upper left corner of the cartridge.
5. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position.
6. Open lid and remove cartridge again. Remove tape from left side and place tape over four contacts at upper right corner of cartridge.
7. Reinstall cartridge in printer and close lid. Wait until cartridge returns to parking position again.
8. Open lid again, remove cartridge, remove tape.
9. Reinstall cartridge and close lid.
Printer will now recalibrate. Once the process is complete the ink level meter should be reading full again.
Doesn't always work, but you can try.

Hi, I just got a Cannon369 MP360 the black ink is empty,but there is color ink in it. It will not print anything. Do I have to replace the Black to get color in to work??? Since it's 2nd hand I don't want...


With this type of printer you need to have a full black cartridge to print black and white. The new Canon BCI-24 black cartridge from Staples is only $8.29. These cartridges are even cheaper from refillers. I recommend Cartridge World or Office Depot for printer cartridge refills.

I have a canon MP600 I put a new #5 black ink cartridge in it, now it wo'nt print black. it shows full but only prints colors


Try wetting the bottom of the cartridge to see if ink will come out, it may just be dry, you can do this by placing the bottom into a little water or onto a wet kleenex, let me know how this works.

HP C6280 with new ink cartridges shows cartridges empty


First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud
