Question about Canon S900 InkJet Printer
I have the exact same problem! I too removed all of the colour cartridges as I only ever print in B/W and this worked perfectly for quite some time.
Recently it started to sporadically dump ink in some sections and then not print on other sections of the paper. Now no ink comes out at all. It goes through the process and my computer believes it has printed but it just spits out a blank sheet of paper.
The ink levels indicate that they are all 1/3 full even though I only have 1 full black cartridge inserted.
I have tried the printer on my Mac and my PC laptop and they both show the same results.
Did you ever find a solution? Is there a software update for this printer or a way to reset it?
1. Start with the printer OFF
2. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
3. release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. Let green light blink until printer is done moving print head.
6. Select functions below with RESUME press POWER to execute:
Number of presses - light color - function
0 presses - green - Test print (or exit service mode on i960)
1 press - orange - EEPROM info print (plus grid nozzle diagnostic on i960)
2 presses - green - EEPROM initialize
3 presses - orange - Reset waste ink counter
