Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Ran out of black ink. replaced cartridge. now won't print in black. why? how to fix?
If it ran dry before you replaced it then you need to do a deep clean of the head. This can be done under the maintenance tab of printer properties. If that doesn't get it working then physically remove the print head and clean it with a water moistened cotton bud (make sure you use a separate cotton bud for each ink nozzle). Running a cartridge completely dry can (and often does) damage the print head (overheats due to lack of cooling provided by the ink flow).
