This is seems to be weird issue you are facing with the printer. I would like to know what is the application you are trying to print from ? Is it Microsoft word etc ? Try to type something in Notepad and print and check if the black is printed.

If you are able to print from Notepad then probably it there are chances the application you are tying to use is corrupted and might need to uninstall and reinstall

Dell 1815dn - when faxing, the fax goes through but all pages are black. when attempting to scan, pages are black. when trying to scan to a PDF file, the file is blank or black.

Welcome to Fixya

Try to print a document and see if you will be getting same issue. Try to copy a document and see if same thing will happen also. Check if the cartridges are not running out of ink.

Thank you for using Fixya!

It won't scan or photocopy.

This issue might occur if the scanner bulb is damaged. Please repair your printer in a service center.

When copying a book there are black inks in border

If you copy something that is smaller than the paper you are printing on, this will happen, especially with a book. The copier will copy everything within the sensor range, and if there are no area to copy, it will scan in the blank space. With a book, the cover will be elevated, and the sensor will pick up the "black" border you are talking about and copy it to the paper.

Big Black not printing

Sounds to me your print head is plugged up. This is not usual though because the majority of people use black ink much more. So, in your printer utility, do a deep cleaning. If that does not work, there is a thing called a purge unit in it. This is a usual way of draining waste ink to a pad that soaks it up. if the hose, or other parts are clogged, it backs the ink up and causes the print head to clog. If this is the start of it, do not waste your ink cleaning, and try not to let it sit too long. Contact canon, and let them kno what you think it is.
