I called tech support for the same trouble, and they told me the print head was malfunctioning. Because it's not covered under warranty, it's gonna cost around $100 to repair. Might as well buy a (BETTER) new printer...NOT a Canon.

Call tech support! That's why these people get paid. Sites like this wouldn't need to exist if they did their jobs correctly!

I changed two colour ink cartridges on my Canon iP4200 printer. Now it won't print colour. The pattern check does not print any colour.


You might want to double check to make sure that your printer takes two color cartridges? If I remember correctly, the Pixma takes one black and one color cartridge? If you put a color cartridge in the black ink assembly that would cause it to stop printing.

Double check and make sure that you have one black cartridge in the correct place and one color on the other side.

I dont know how to print in black and white, it will only print in color


I have a Canon PIXMA iP2702 InkJet Photo Printer, I think it all works the same. Ok so here's what you do, go to print, the box pops up, go to properties on the right hand side, go to maintenance on the top, then go to ink cartridge settings and select black only from the list and "ok" that's it.

Every fifth line has a white streak through the


I would try using something like rubber renew on the pickup rollers and make sure that the paper is being fed correctly. If this is happening then start looking at the ink.

Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Some printers will let you re-run a cleaning utility from their system menu or the computer printer properties. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print correctly, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expects you to have is not installed. If all else fails change out the ink, but double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily is the right type and using the wrong ink can cause unexpected results.

Can i print black and white text only when colour cartridges are empty but black is full on an ip14300?


you can make a selection from the File->Print option of your word processor or whatever package you are using. it is your command that sets the printer to B&W or color. If your Black ink finishes then the printer even if set to color will print black as near black with color inks.

Won't print black when set for plain paper


Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

Want to print back only


In your "Orinting Options" go to advanced and choose "Black ink only"..this will use only the black cartridge.

My Pixma stopped printing black.


Have you installed the full software that came with the printer? If so then it would tell you if the black ink had run out.

Start by replacing the ink cartridge. If you can replace the black only then do so, if not then replace the cartridge that contains black (along with the other colors).

It is quite common for the black to run out 1st, which is why many printers feature a separate black cartridge.

If that does not help then get back to me and we can look at some other alternatives.
