Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One Printer
I've refilled my black cartridge and colour cartridge i can reset both of them.the ink level still didnt show any change but iit is not a real problem for me because when i print, i can print the colour but not black....so i am having a problem with the black cartridge..furthermore, i can still print black whwn i am using colour cartridge.. i need the solution, pleaz...... do i ned to but the new black cartridge or whatever but please help me....
I just fixed my problem after a month or so on and off.
The re-fill kit said to place a rubber bung (supplied) into the drilled hole. I assumed the bung was vented - but no. The colour cartridge re-filled fine and as this was the only difference I removed bung and taped over the hole making sure that the vent line was clear (you could also pinprick the tape).
It's all working now although I had to do a few test pages and cleaning to get the ink through.
Hope this helps

Sounds like your black cartidge is either blocked or faulty.
1 st test: take the cartridge out & dab the print head on a facial tissue ie very soft. Do you see a straight black imprint of the jets area, it should be solid no ragged or missing sections.
If it looks good put it back in & do a nozzle check in the maintainance section. Hope this will test.
Let me know if it doesnt I will then go to plan B
