Black ink in printer not printing out but color ink prints out fine

The black print head is faulty or blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

One colour, Cyan will not print.

Some nozzle on print head is clodged. Remove the head, on some cloath, spill water and few times press head nozzles on it ( bottom side ), dry it and then do the head cleaning. If dont help change print head, when print head is changed its also recomended to change absorber and purge unit too.

I can not open ij utility to clean the head, also it doesn't print on CDs. Seems like not talking to my Mac book osx tiger.

If you hold the resume button until the power light blinks once, it will clean the heads, hold the button for two blinks and it will print a nozzle check print. You may have to download a new driver from canon website.

Check that your black ink cartridge has ink inside, eventually try a new cartridge , as ink may have dried up in old cartridge.
If you use a new cartridge ensure you removed cellotape from cartrige.
If cartridge is ok, then it is printer nozzle/head for black ink.
In this case do nozzle check / head cleaning in printer tools a couple of times.
If problem persist you may need to check and clean printer's head with cotton and solvent.
