It doesn't have inks, it has black toner only.
If it was previously printing, did the TONER lamp light up, suggesting it had exhausted? Maybe it ceased printing for some other reason. Is anything flashing, and might it reset if powered off and back on?
You can print a test page from it without computer input, by pressing the GO button 3 times. If that prints, you may have software problems on the computer. Uninstall the printer, and reinstall the drivers.
If that doesn't work, have you checked the connecting cable?

Yes. You cannot use the printer even in black and white, until the color cartridge is replaced. They are designed to check the levels of the both black and color cartridges.

Print keeps fading, even though using new ink


check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

Why am I still getting banding even though test prints are ok.


Sounds like you've picked up some dried ink on the print head or ink holder. I would suggest removing all the ink cartridges and the ink holder (see directions from Canon) and clean the bottom with rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip or cotton cloth. DON'T use paper towel, it leaves lint. Check the rollers also to make sure they don;t have ink residue on them. Be cautious when working inside your printer.

My printer does the same thing. I changed the blank ink yesterday (the printer shows the black ink was low) however after trying and trying and not being able to complete the alignment I decided to change the color ink as well.
It worked. Printer works fine now. Sometimes the ink dries up and you have to change it even though you know it should last longer.
Give it a try and let me know.

Printer not printing


It sounds like it is out of ink. If you have replaced the ink cartridge recently, is it possible you forgot to remove the small piece of tape that is placed over the head to prevent ink leaks? That has to be removed before installation.
