If you don't use it very often the black could have dried in the printhead, and you will need a new one. Another possibility is that the purge unit is not cleaning and priming the printhead properly. I have seen several defective purge units. For 1 year it can be replaced under warranty, after that it is a $90.00 repair job in the shop.

Just bought new MX318 one chamber gets finished after a few pages. No indicator for finished ink. One compartment of Ink cartridge looks empty the other still full. Tried cleening process but no improvement. Replaced Cartridge but it seems to behave the same as the first after a few prints.

(More) Canon MX850 will not print from small Black Ink Cartridge - 8BK. It only uses the large black ink cartridge and I have a drawer full of small 8BK cartridges. How can I get it to use the small black cartridge and not the large black cartridge? Thanks

That is a common problem on all Canon printers, the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, has a pump inside and hoses that go to the filters and ink absorbers. When that unit goes out you need a replacement. A job best done in a shop. When the printhead is not cleaned and primed properly you get blank pages no matter how full the inks are.

I suspect that your have a damaged refilled cartridge. Also, you may have a clogged nozzle. Canon printers are sensitive to the quality of the ink used in the cartridges and refill ink sometimes does not meet the manufacturer's specifications. You can check this by inserting a new OEM cartridge, running the deep cleaning utillity three times and a aligning the printhead. The other problem may be that the electronic chip on the refilled cartridge may either be damaged or blocked by dried ink. In any case, you need to discard the failing cartridge and replace it.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.
