The printer's lying to me

The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

Canon pixma mp530 not printing colour. The cartridges are new, when I print an alignment, no colour prints, only the black and white. I've performed a clean, deep clean, print head alignment, nozzle...

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Printer will only print in back ink and not colour. i have checked the cartridge.

Check the printer properties and locate the Color Management screen. Make sure that you do not have Black and White selected for your printing.

No black ink printing

Check the ink cartridge, take it out and make sure there isn't still a plastic piece stuck on the contact area. It's the metal piece on the bottom of it.

Pixma iP1500:new ink cartridges fitted but no Magenta

Take a look at the mounting point. They break very easily on this model. If not broke, try cleaning with a swab and inserting the cart again.

Printer head ip 1500

Printhead is dead, and here Canon gotcha because a printhead for ip1500 is more expensive as the whole printer.
So kiss your printer good bye and get a new one, but at least this time get one that uses cartridges with printhead ON THE CARTRIDGE (like HP and Lexmark) or, if you are in love with Canon, take one that uses the cartridges PGI-5 for black and CLI-8 for color, they also have sepparate printhead from cartridge but it seams they are more durable. And easy to refill, as well!

Hope it helped you in any way!

Rate this solution please. Thx.
