My MP500 has stopped printing black


Two things, usually the printhead is bad and needs replacement, QY6-0059-000, on rare occasions I've seen the purge assembly not cleaning and purging the black properly, and that happens. I would change the printhead first.

Printhead is blocked but it's only the Black PGBK cartridge on my Canon MP610 printer. All other colours are working fine. I can't print a letter unless I select a photo paper.


try removing the black cartridge and with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol clean the cartridge where the ink is. Re-insert and clean the heads.

Canon PIXMA MP500 New Black ink cartridge produces no ink


If you don't use it very often the black could have dried in the printhead, and you will need a new one. Another possibility is that the purge unit is not cleaning and priming the printhead properly. I have seen several defective purge units. For 1 year it can be replaced under warranty, after that it is a $90.00 repair job in the shop.

Not printing black ink after replacing cartridge


Hi,

Unfortunately I have no idea which compatible cartridge you're using so it's difficult to provide a definite solution. However a few things to consider:

1. The cartridge needs to have a clear vent hole so if you haven't removed tape or a plug from a hole that was indicated in the instructions, you need to do this.

2. Try removing the cartridge and then touching the exit port on the cartridge with a Q-tip (cotton bud) to see if the ink flows to the cotton. If it doesn't you need to replace the cartridge.

3. Check the cartridge is sitting properly in the printhead.. The interface between the printhead, rubber grommet and the cartridge exit port is very important and the cartridge needs to sit in this properly.


My guess is that the compatible cartridge is not up to the job and you need to consider getting an OEM (Canon original) instead.

You may want to think about finding a refill kit and using the Durschtich (German) method of refilling using bulk ink and a chip resetter instead of compatibles.... Nifty-stuff forums have a LOT of information on this subject so it's well worth a look.

Hope that helps.

My PGBK cartridge stopped printing. After doing the cleaning recommended through the properties help menu nothing changed. The test pattern doesn't show anything where the PGBK pattern should be - NOTHING!


After removing all the ink cartridges, I removed the print head and soaked it in propyl alcohol overnight. Then blew it out gently with an aerosol 'air duster' and washed it again in fresh propyl alcohol followed by another blowing out. After gently blotting the print heads on a soft tissue and replacing the print head plus cartridges, it necessitated two deep cleans to get the inks through and all now works again.
Make sure that you switch off the printer at its On/Off switch and not at the supply. I think I may have done this and left the heads not parked properly - hence the drying out!

Bottom half of pgbk band doesn't print


First try doing a deep head cleaning or two; if that doesn't work, try removing the printhead and looking at the bottom of it to make sure there is nothing blocking the small ejection holes on printhead, reinstall the printhead, do the alignment again an that should do it, if not you may need a new printhead.

Pgbk cartrige


Your printer works with the PGI-5BK cartridges, that are in fact just ink-tanks, the printhead being apart of the tanks, so if the cartridges are not empty, it cannot be because of them. It doesnt matter if you replace the cartridge, the problem is in the printhead.

If the problem occured just a while ago, you should consider that NOT PRINTING a long time (30 days) with a printer can lead to ink drying out in the printhead, clogging the nozzles. OK, now it comes: If you have some tehnical skills, you can remove the cartridge and desassembly the printhead (where the cartridge are in) and do the following:

Put a paper-tissue on a small plate (like a coffee-cup plate), then put some boiling water on it, just 2~3mm of water over the tissue.
Put the printhead with the nozzles part downside on the tissue, in the hot water.
Let it stay there in the water 30 min.
Put the cartridges back on the printhead (without installing it in the printer), rap it in an other clean tissue, than shake it strongy as if you want to force ink to get out trough the nozzles. Then clean gentle the nozzle part of the printhead on some sheets of tissue.
Get the cartridges again out of the printhead, install it in the printer, then install the cartridges again and run a few cleaning processes from the printers maintenance software.

It should work. If you dont have the tehnicall skills needed, Canon gotcha, or you can visit a local specialist to make all this for you, they usualy have better equipmens, as ultrasonic cleaners and special solvents that makes all this easyer.

Rate the solution if it helped you!

Thx.
