Check in printer settings if you have not unknowingly set it to color.

No magenta ink, just need to print in black but won't let me.


Hello.
Hold down the Stop/Reset Button (it has a red triangle on it) on your printer for 10 to 15 seconds until the light stops flashing.
This will disable the ink level monitoring for the empty cartridge, but be careful not to print with a completely empty cartridge, as this can burn out the print head.
Regards GM

CANON MP210 NOT PRINTING BLACK DESPITE NEW CARTRIDGE. ONLY PRINTING COLOUR WHY?


Did you take off the tape on the nozzle when installing the color cartridge? If you didn't do that, take it off, if you did, just run a couple black and white test pages to get the ink flowing.

Cannon MP520 when printing documents there are lines through some of the text. I have changed the ink cartridge 2 times! What should I do?


The issue is not with the ink cartridge but with the actual print heads. In most (almost all) Canon ink jet prints/multi functions the prints heads are separate from the ink cartridge.
The print head is what guides he ink onto the page, if they become dirty or clogged then you will get lines through images and text or very poor print outs.
You can clean the print heads by using the software that came with the printer and there are some other ways as well.
I tried to paste the instructions from Canons site but they were too long. Use the link below to go to Canon's knowledge base for the MP520 and search for "clean print heads" and follow the instructions that come up.
