CANON mp 830 NOT PRINTING BLACK EVEN THOUGH BOTH BLACK INK CARTRIDGE IS HALF FULL. i have taken the print head out, cleaned the contacts and still the same. what else can I do?


Copy machine makers are notorius for forcing users to use a bit of the more expensive color mixed in with black. I can't print in black, it is called greyscale, therefore it has color in it. If you only print in greyscale, you'll notice your color cartridges going lower over time.

I've got a Canon Pixma MP 500. Printing from my computer = faded print. Copying = blank page. Auto head align fails. Alarm light goes on. Have tried stop/reset button. How can I fix this?


Hello,

It sounds like the print head on your printer is either clogged or not working.

You get faint print from your computer because the computer will use your color inks to get gray. When you copy, it only tries to use black and the black isn't printing at all.

Check your user's manual and it should show you how to clean the print head. Otherwise replace the print heads and you should be fine.

Thanks,

Pat

I have an 8-year old Canon i9100, and have just installed my third brand new Print Head. It worked fine for one month, then the black started fading and then just stopped printing. All the other colors...


It is probably a bad purge assembly, when it doesn't clean or prime the printhead properly you have the problems you are describing. There are 2 sections in the purge assembly, one cleans color and the other cleans the black. Sounds like the black pump is worn out. The part runs around $30.00

Canon Pixma MP 470 Doesn't Use Black Ink in Photos


if the test page is printing black and colors fine then the problem is with the software. since u r saying that all the softwares are giving same results, i think that the black cartridge may be empty. is this cartridge is a refilled one or else it needs cleaning. try running cleaning cycles two or three times. but don't run more than that otherwise u will lose ink.
if possible clean the nozzle part with a very very soft cloth very lightly with no force applying. do not do this every time other wise the head will be gone.

Canon MP F50 "wrong cartridge" error


remove all cartridges leaving printhead intact.
close cover, turn off
turn on, let power up, error message should be gone.
open cover, reinstall cartridges
if you cleaned your print head like I did you'll probly
eventually end up getting a new one anyway, due to the color variations
but I can at least print text.

I had exaclty same problem - black not printing - was about to buy a new printer but did the following as a last resort about a month ago - remove the ink cartridges - removed the head and sat it on an a tissue - into the 'well' where the printer cartridges sit I dropped into there a very small amount of water as if to 'wash it through' where the ink would flow, (about a quarter tea spoon) - agitated it a bit - this flushed thru the gaps were the ink goes - I cleaned it all up - dried it with a tissue - put it all back together - it works fine now ! This was a last resort option for me but I guarantee it did work !
