My PIXMA MP500 tells me that my black#5 cartridge is out of ink when it clearly still has ink in the reservoir as well as the sponge. How can I fix this?

It's probably dry ,have you used it regularly?
Try to do a head clean on the printer using the printers software.
If that doesnt work then you will have to replace the cartridge.

I have the PIXMA MP500 & 3 of m ink cartridges #8 blue, magenta & yellow ran out of ink but I have a brand new #8 black & #5 pgbk that I changed. Now I just want to print from the black ink...


Unfortunately, the printer is designed to need all of the ink cartridges in place and no empty ink cartridges. This is designed to protect the ink system from damage.

There is a way to print a color document in black and white but it won't help with your issue. (Enter the Printing Preferences by right clicking on the icon for the Canon MP500 in the Devices and Printers Panel (Win7). (It's Printers for the Vista Classic View and Printers and Faxes for XP) Then put a check mark in the box for Greyscale Printing in the main tab. Then click OK and close the window. There is a similar method for Mac OS versions.)

I wish that I had better news.

Message tells me black ink cartridge empty when I just put new one in


if you are using a refilled cartridge the printer don't accept them, you need to use the proper canon ink cartridge, if you are using the canon cartridge you have to press the stop botton for 5sec for accepting the new cartridge.

Black ink leakage


Most likely there is (or was) ink on top of the sponge. When this happens the hydrostatic pressure gets messed up and the cartridge will leak ink until there is no more ink on top of the sponge. Look at the side of the cartridge, there should be a small gap between the sponge and the top of the cartridge. If there isn't you can place paper towels on the egress hole and wick out the excess ink to fix the problem.

PIXMA MP500


The number 5 is a Pigment text black while the number 8 is a dye photo black. The text black is for black text mainly and the photo black is for use when printing photos. Since the text black is always running out it means you are printing a lot of documents in plain paper mode.

I recommend using QUALITY refill ink like Hobbicolors which is sold on eBay and will save you a bundle of money. The MP830 is a 5 ink printer so you need the 5 ink kit like the IP4300.
