The 8BK is for printing photo's and high detail, it is usually only selected when you select to print high res / photo.

The large black ink tank is empty but the small black ink tank is full, why won't the printer print from the small ink tank?

The small black ink is only used for printing photos and must be used in addition to the large one. If the large one is empty, it will not work.

Error code U150 The following ink tank cannot be recognized

First, make sure you have the right ink cartridges. Here are the right codes: CLI-8BK and PGI-5BK for black, Yellow - CLI-8Y, Magenta - CLI-8M, Cyan - CLI-8C.

If the ink lamp is off then an ink tank error has occurred. Try to remove the ink tank and re-seat it. Make sure you removed the plastic cover on the ink tank. If nothing helped, you need to replace the faulty ink tank.

I replaced the clear ink tank on mx7600 and the message "the clear ink is empty" will not go away nor will it print in black. The brand new Canon brand clear ink can be seen on the ink tank itself and in...

Yeah, me too. I fiddled with cycling the power, removing and reinserting the tank, doing maintenance tasks like cleaning the jets, yadda, yadda, no dice. New full Canon tank displays empty. Boo.

I figured "What the heck, I'll try printing anyway" and sent a test page on plain paper. It warned me the tank was empty, then did a bunch of those cartridge moves it likes to do (you hear the carriage moving around cleaning or something). After like 90? seconds of cleaning noises, it figured out that the tank was full, the status went to full, and it printed the page fine.

So my advice is, try printing a page anyway.

Error code U071 , more than one ink tank of te following color is installed, is the message on the screen. This is not the case as each cartridge is different and correctly installed?

Hi there,

Error U071 : More than one ink tank of the following color is installed. U071.
Action : Confirm that the ink tanks are installed in the appropriate positions.
The machine will not print if the wrong type of ink tank is used, or if it is installed in the incorrect position.
Be sure to install the ink tanks in the correct order. The proper arrangement from the left is Black (CLI-8BK), Black (PGI-5BK), Yellow (CLI-8Y), Magenta (CLI-8M), Cyan (CLI-8C).

Hope this hepls.

How do I direct my Canon ip4300 Printer to no longer print from the normal black 5BGBK cartridge (empty) but to print from the 8BK (full)

You can't because CLI-8Bk ink cartridge is use only for photo printing.For text, document or gray scale printing the printer use PGI-5Bk.You need to replace your empty PGI-5Bk.

Won't print from small black ink tank

The large cartridge is for text and black pictures and the small one is for toning colours so you need to replace it. I found an absolute bargain on e-bay (2 packs of complete cartridges for £12-$18) when a set of origionals are £24 each set.

Canon Pixma ip4200--

I read somewhere that if the printer receives instruction from the PC that it requires black only printing (e.g. a letter in Word) then it will use the 5PGBK tank. The 8BK tank is used with the other colours in photo printing only. If you check the greyscale option, it will use ink from the 8BK tank and mix with the CMY colours to print, but I have not tried this out.
Good luck
