    I have the same problem

  • Anonymous Mar 02, 2008

    Same as the other person. All my ink cartridges are new and full, done testing and still fails to print in black. However, as a temporary solution, I made it so I print in 80% gray until I solve this issue.

Hi Alcadeus here just a quick tip if you take out all your ink tanks the print head cleaner lift out easily dont worry it goes back easy believe me. On the bottom you have two strips they are the actual heads, you need to cleen them preferably with alcohol i had none so i used aftershave. Then re-assemble the unit and do 2 deep cleans hey presto problem solved.

Worked for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The reason why is the heads go dry or get clogged.

I have installed a new black and colour ink cartridge but it is only printing in black and blue- why is this?


Your printer head might be blook. For the reason all the colour of ink does not come out through the printer head nozzels. In this condition you should try to come out ink through ink nozzels. procedure
1. print a nozzel cheak. and see what colour does'nt come out.
2. Now open photoshop and take a a4 page and fill it with six colour and print it 5/6 time in a photo paper. If print does not improve call me again. I will give you second tecnique.
Thank you.

Canon pixma iP8500 won't print, blank pages


The colour cartridge is badly clog. put tissue with warm/hot water below the head, wait for about 30 minutes. If tissue is coloured, the dried ink inside head is out. Is it not, do suction from the outlet pipe of head cleaning mechanics.

Can't print color only black and white


Please check if your Colour Ink Cartridge is not emply. If their's ink in the cartridge then try to service your printer through the Print Preferences. Your Colour Cartridge Nozzels could have been blocked thats why your printer is unable to print in Colour.

In case if both the above doesn't work then check in the Print Preferences that you should not have saved the option of PRINT DOCUMENT IN BLACK ONLY. hope this helps , AJ
