Check ink levels. Control panel > printers > right click on printer and choose properties. Look for a tab that says something like color management or maybe just color. Should be an indicator of how low the ink is. If you are lucky to have one of the more translucent ink well cartridges, you might be able to remove and hold cartridge to a light to see how much is in there. If very low or empty, you'll need to replace it.

If ink is in there, reinsert the cartridge and peform a nozzle test or head cleaning. Also do a head alignment. All of these things should be options in the printer properties.

Still no black? Maybe a problem with print head and will require servicing or replacing.

I just put in a new black ink cartridge and it will not print black ink. The color ink prints, but the black will not.


Hello nicfurtaw, there are dried ink on the ink carousel, or cradle, you may need to soften the ink. Use cotton buds, dip into warm water and gently wipe the ink hole where the ink pass through, until the carousel is clean.
  1. remove the black ink cartridge
  2. find the spot where the ink pass through
  3. see dried ink on it.
  4. use cotton buds dipped in warm water to soften the ink.
  5. do this several times
  6. clean enough, test to see if the black ink will pass through
  7. replace the black ink cartridge
  8. test the printer.

How do i mix the colours on my stylus sx115 as i have run out of black but have the other 3 colours remaining?


Conserving Black Ink When the Cartridge Is Low (For Windows Only) The window below appears when black ink runs low and there is more color ink than black ink. It appears only when plain papers is selected as the paper type, and Text is selected as the Quality Option.

The window gives you the option to either continue using black ink normally or conserve black ink by using a mixture of color inks to create black. Click the Yes button to use a mixture of color inks to create black. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job. Click the No button to continue using the remaining black ink for the job you are printing. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job, and again have the option to conserve black ink. Click Disable this feature to continue using the remaining black ink.

Canon IP4300 - the two black ink cartridges


No!

The large cartridge is used for text only printing.
The smaller black cartridge is used for black in images such as pictures.

You have a "C (cyan) M (magenta) Y (yellow) and B (black) color system. This actually saves the color inks for you. If the Black was not there, you would need to make a composite black from the color inks.

Does not print black colour


Is it nothing black? Try this. Move cartridge to parking position. Whith only black ink tank instlaled, **** the ink from the outlet pipe of head cleaning mechanic. If there is ink, the black head is not clog. Then try to print. If it's still no black ink printing, may be the electricity of black head is lost contact. so, the micro pump can't work good.

Black ink


The PGBK cartridge is a pigment black ink, while the others use a dye for coloration. The pigment black is used when printing text and other documents. The dye ink is used when printing photos and other colored documents. The dye black is used in conjunction with the color (dye) inks to provide tinting and color gradation, and therefore is not used nearly as much as the pigment black unless you use your printer only for printing photos.

If you're printing text and documents, you will need to buy another pigment black (PGBK) cartridge.

Does not recognise the smaller black ink cartridge


This machine is not meant to switch between the two black cartridges. The large one is used when you are using black only, and the small one is used when you are printing in color.
