Hi We have a Cannon MP600 printer. Just replaced the large black cartridge (PGBK 5) as it had run out. The printer is now smearing gaps in the text (in black). Tried 2 cartridges & both produced the...


Hi ...

This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged and showing the line gap in printing. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.

Please vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

Prints purple instead of black on photos only


My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!

CANON MP600 - NOT PRINTING IN BLACK INK


I have had the mp600 for 3 years - worked fine on a couple of different pcs. I switched to a mac and encountered 2 issues - scanner stopped working and above problem of no black ink. The newest driver (just google mp600 driver) fixed the scanner issue. The ink issue has a work around - select non plain paper in the media quality tab, instead use any photo paper setting. Finding this area in a mac can be tricky - in the mini print options window you have to click the small chubby arrow and you will then be given a list of options including quality and media. Presto, black ink returns but probably uses more ink and takes longer to print. I have not found a more elegant solution as you have to select this non default paper option every time.

Black text d not print


If the printer has been left for some weeks with an empty black cartridge then I suspect the print head is clogged.
To clean the print head, firstly remove it.
Remove each cartridge quickly and turn it upside down so ink does not drip out.
Flush warm water with a drop of detergent through the metal meshes at the bottom front inside of the print head unit. Continue untill the water coming out of the bottom of the print head is clear.
Then flush through with clean warm water for about 30secs.
Shake as much water as possible out of the unit.
Replace the cartridges quickly to avoid ink dripping out.
Undertake a nossle (head) clean on the printer until printing correctly.

Hope this helps.
