Re: Ink Tank

Hi i am a certified Canon tech for this machine. the only thing that you can do is yank it out with force the worst that is going to happen is the ink chip connector prongs could break but they might already be broken or bent. in this case you will need to find a Canon repair center by calling 1-800-OK-Canon or by looking on their website Canon repair centers are world wide and privately owned. if the unit is less then 1 year old just find a repair center and have it fixed otherwise try forcing the cartride out and hope for the best.

Can I replace pgbk 5 with bk 8 in Canon MX700?

No unfortunately. The cartridge shape is significantly different (apart from using diffeent ink) and not of the relevant bits underneath will mate up.

Check x Tank (the ink color is indicated by x)
This is displayed when an incorrect ink tank is installed.
The final digit indicates the ink color.

So you have problem with Bk ink tank...

This is displayed when installation of an incorrect ink tank is detected.
This is displayed when a checksum error occurs in the ink tank EEPROM.

Ink tank, ink tank unit, engine controller, system controller

1. Replace the ink tank.
2. Replace the ink tank unit.
3. Cable connection check
Replace the cable between the ink tank unit and engine controller if the connection is not functioning normally.
4. Replace the engine controller.
5. Replace the system control

So as you can see there is a lot of possibillities, ... call service

if the clogging is worst then the deep head cleaning wont help.the head will need to be cleaned up manually and the waste ink pad in the printer should be cleaned too. this is covered normally in printer servicing.give special instructions to clean the head properly while you hand over the printer for servicing to any local tech. head cleaning and servicing will solve the issue
This will help. Thanks, please keep updated. please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

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.

Printer says more than one ink tank is installed

I have the exact same problem. It usually takes me quite a few times of taking the tank out and putting it back in to get the machine to comply. Any solutions?
