Why does my canon mg5250 not copy black and white


Go to the setup, then maintenance menu on the printer and select "print nozzle check pattern"
You should see a complete black ladder pattern (for the fat black cartridge) and a set of coloured bars for each colour cartridge (including the thin black cartridge). If the black ladder pattern is missing then this indicates the black printhead is blocked or cartridge is empty. If you are SURE the cartridge is not dry, then:
select clean to clean the print head for the black only. You may have to do this several times. If the check pattern does not improve, you may have to remove the printhead and clean it manually. Instructions to do this I will give separately if needed.

Why is my Canon Pixma 4820 suddenly leaving lighter lines through color pictures.


Worn print head. And for what they charge for a stinking print head you can get a new printer for less with a warranty to boot!

I have a canon multifunction MX700. Suddenly, my black ink stopped printing. Printer prints in other colors. I have turned the power to both printer and computer on and off, have checked the USB cable,...


Dear Adrienne,First make sure that the black ink is not empty. If you are sure the black ink is full enough you need to check the print head condition. The print head may be clogged or faulty.
To fix the clogged print head,please perform the following step:
  • Print the nozzle check pattern, access the following menu on LCD: Menu>Maintenance>Nozzle Check. The good nozzle pattern should like below sample image.

  • If the print head nozzle missing some color (i.e Black) the perform print head cleaning: Menu>Maintenance>Cleaning. Then print the nozzle check pattern again. Note: you may repeat this step up to 3 times.
  • If the problem still remain,then you should perform Deep Cleaning: Menu>Maintenance>Deep Cleaning.
If you have perform the above steps but the problem still the same,please check whether the black nozzle missing partially or totally. The faulty Purge Unit (ink pump) may cause the same problem. I mean the purge unit does not work properly so the ink cannot flow. Good luck :)

I have a Canon Pixma MP270 and I can only print in colour both the black and colour lights are lit up on the printer


f print quality does not improve by the standard cleaning of the Print Head, clean the Print Head deeply. Cleaning the Print Head deeply consumes more ink than the standard cleaning of the Print Head, so clean the Print Head deeply only when necessary.
1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Clean the Print Head deeply. (1) Press the g0022565.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until y appears. g0054776.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning the Print Head deeply. Do not perform any other operations until the machine completes the deep cleaning of the Print Head. This takes about 2 minutes.

3. Check the print head condition.

When the deep cleaning is completed, the LED returns to the copy standby mode. To check the print head condition, print the nozzle check pattern.

See " Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern".

If the problem is not resolved, turn off the power and clean the Print Head deeply again after 24 hours.
If the problem is still not resolved, replace the FINE Cartridge with a new one.

See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".
If the problem is still not resolved after replacing the FINE Cartridge, contact the service center.

Printing the Nozzle Check Pattern
Print the nozzle check pattern to determine whether the ink ejects properly from the print head nozzles.

NOTE If the remaining ink level is low, the nozzle check pattern will not be printed correctly. Replace the FINE Cartridge whose ink is low.
See " Replacing FINE Cartridges".



You need to prepare: a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper

1. Make sure that the power is turned on.

2. Load a sheet of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.

3. Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.

4. Print the nozzle check pattern.

(1) Press the g0020617.png (Maintenance) button repeatedly until A appears. g0054754.png
(2) Press the Black or Color button.

The nozzle check pattern will be printed.

5. Examine the nozzle check pattern.
See Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern.

Examining the Nozzle Check Pattern

Examine the nozzle check pattern, and clean the Print Head if necessary.

1. Check if there are missing lines in the pattern (1) or horizontal white streaks in the pattern (2). g0054755.png (1) Check if lines are missing in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".

g0020623.png
(A) Good
(B) Bad (lines are missing)

(2) Check if horizontal white streaks are present in this pattern. If yes, the cleaning is required.
See " Cleaning the Print Head".
g0020621.png
(A) Good
(B) Bad (horizontal white streaks are present)

Canon iP6310D does not print text in black


1 reason for this may be that there is no ink in the cartridge
2)the inkhole is blocked

You may need to do a clean and nozzle check till the ink runs and it prints the check pattern using black. or replace the cartridge

Printer will not print in Black ink cartridg are full. what gives


Both blacks are in your print driver test pattern?
Go into the maintence menu and choose nozzle check.
It should rint a test pattern with the first grid being labled "PGB" if not your head is clogged.You can tru a solution of 20-25% ammonia to water and soak the black print head for a half an hour.Then completely dry the electrical contacts and re-install.
If that does not do it I have a more aggressive solution that requires a baster.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.


Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.
