Are you using genuine Canon inks? This is a typical problem with 'compatible' ink cartridges.
What happens is that ink leaks from the cartridge and out of the bottom of the print-head. As the print-head moves back and forth across the paper these little leaky bits drop off on to the paper.
Another possibility is that the sponge that sits under the print-head when it's at rest is really saturated with ink and it's leaving a large mount on the bottom of the print head which then get moved on to the paper as the print-head moves. (This too is often caused by a leaky cartridge.)
A quick way to check is to open the printer and take out the print-head (you can do it on this model without taking the cartridges out of the carriage) and look at the bottom off it. If it's all smeared with ink then there's your problem. Use some paper towel and clean the surplus ink off. Then , get some fresh paper toel and a bright light and examine the area at the right hand end of the printer where the carriage normally sits when the printer is off. You should see the absorber sponge. It will probably be very wet. Use the paper towel and try to get as much ink as you can out of that sponge - you'll get your finger ends all inky but that's the price you'll have to pay.
When you've got as much ink out as you think you can, put the carriage back in and test the system out.
Please let us know if that works.

My printer prints pictures fine but when i print words it dont print black ink just colors why


Black printer ink in Canon Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

My printer will no longer print black text


Turn off the printer.

Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button.

Release the RESUME button, then press and release the RESUME button two more times in succession. (youre still holding the POWER button during this). The printer mechanics will move momentarily.

You are now in Service mode.

Pressing the RESUME key will select a function; for example, pressing RESUME 4 times will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate color with each key press.

1. service/factory test printout, including ink sensor check
2. EEPROM info printout
3. EEPROM initialization
4. Clear the waste-ink counter
5. Printer model setting. (more selections beyond this- leave this alone)

After selecting mode, press the POWER button to commit the change, and return to the top of the function selection menu. Pressing the POWER button again turns off the printer for a restart.

If you have a defective printer head, your power lamp may flash during the service mode key-in, and info printouts may not work. In this case, clearing the waste-ink counter may not fix your problem.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .
