My Canon PIXMA MP530 fails to print PGBK

I'm using a rebuilt PGBK cartridge, which has printed in the past, on this machine. However, after a recent move, the printer, fails to print black. The printer recognizes the cartridge, the cartridge is about 3/4 full, my other rebuilt cartridges still function fine.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Coloured printer with black not printing?

Breath and Relax... this should resolve your problem.
Routine maintenance and keeping full ink tanks will prevent this problem, however if you have the problem you can resolve it by doing the following:
1. Clean your ip3000 print head using denatured alcohol solvent which can be purchased from most hardware stores. If unavailable, use 91% Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol (first aid antiseptic) which is available for less than a dollar at most Walmart pharmacy departments.

*Warning: You may want to use a pair of latex exam gloves as this is a messy process and can stain your fingers.

Supplies needed:
Isopropyl Alcohol or denatured alcohol
paper towels
latex gloves
sink, bowls and or basin
can of compressed air
very small screw driver
tablespoon or baby bulb type syringe
warm water
Time necessary 45-50 minutes

1. Lift print head from printer. It pulls out easily because it is held in with the same down lever that holds the cartridge in place.
2. Put two layers of paper towels in the bottom of a dish to protect sensitive sprayer heads.
3.Put enough solvent in dish to cover the screens on which the cartridges sit when in use.
4. Take the two small screws out that hold the white ceramic piece
5. Gently, pry the ceramic piece back and away , to reveal the underside (No need to pull away the glued points on the sides.)
6. Gently, move head up and down to slosh solvent around it the best as you can. Use a table spoon or syringe to pour solvent over all orifices in the print head, turning it upside down and then back a few times.
7. Use canned air with a plastic straw to blow into and through all orifices, alternately sloshing/swishing and pouring solvent over head (be careful not to touch any of the holes, screens, or sprayer heads with anything)
8. Empty dirty solvent from bowl and replace with paper towels and clean solvent. Soak for approx 10 minutes. Rinse again with clean solvent poured directly on all parts, letting solvent overrun and fall into dish or basin.
9. Gently shake the solvent off the head, take it outside and spray with compressed air into all orifices to clear out and help evaporate any remaining solvent. Let sit on a clean paper towel for approx 20 minutes. (There may be a little ink bleeding out of the head, but once it dries completely it does not present any problems.
10. Reinstall head, cartridges and it will print like a new printer.

SUGGESTION: For many years of problem free printing, keep a double set of ink cartridges, one set full at all times. Whenever a cartridge runs out of ink, replace it IMMEDIATELY, with a new one or a refilled one. This gives the print head no chance to dry out and create clogged heads. Routine maintenance of cleaning the heads every 24 months does wonders for keeping your ip3000 in new condition.

Happy Printing .

Canon PIXMA iP4200 not printing PGBK properly - only printing top 50% of PGBK grid on test page.


Man you did some awesome troubleshooting! I don't know, but it sounds like something is physically wrong with internal electronics. I'd call in the big dogs at Canon themselves.

My PGBK ink cartridge is not printing. I just replaced it. Everything else is working fine. I have done several cleaning jobs on it and the test prints that I print don't even show PGBK or the black...


the PGBK ink cartridge might not be getting a good connection you might have to remove it and check the connections or clean the connection bars

You might have to uninstall the printer restart your computer then reinstall your printer

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you

might see a yellow? ! question exclamation mark or a red X this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click you will have options to update driver,disable,uninstall or select properties again you will have the similiar options also you can troubleshoot the device
hope this helps you

The PGBK cartridge seems to be leaking and leaves a smear of ink all the way down the paper on the opposite side of the print.


That's ink from the cleaning station backing up thru the exit rollers. You need a shop to clean up the extra ink and install a shield that will prevent that in the future.

How do I get my first blank ink cartridge to work?


you really need to replace the empty cartridge...it's a protection for keeping your printhead from drying or else the micro nozzles will be clogged with dry ink. did u try setting the printer settings to use greyscale or black and white only?
