That's means you didn't refill the colour ink properly.
Try this method, use the injection to draw any of the colour of about 2mm of the refill you bought, inject it into one of the tiny holes of the cartridge and draw a little back so as to remove the dirt in the foam inside the cartridge.. That's all
Many printers always use a small amount of each color even if you are only printing black, to prevent the color nozzles from drying out and getting clogged (and, it forces you to buy more ink, which is a profit center for printer manufacturers)
For this reason, some printers will not work if ANY of the cartridges are empty.
It should work again if you replace the color cartridge. Make sure to select "black ink only" or the option to print in black and white or grayscale to minimize color ink usage. It may still use a little, but that's OK.
Hi,The most common reason for missing or incorrect colors is a print cartridge with one of the following problems:
One or more of the ink colors is empty. The black ink and all three colors of ink in the tri-color cartridge must be available or colors will be incorrect or missing. Under normal usage, the print cartridge will run low on one color of ink shortly before all ink colors are emptied.
The protective tape is not removed from a new cartridge.
Contacts on the cartridge are not making proper contact with the print carriage.
When you refill an HP cartridge there is a chip on some that tells the printer how many pages have been printed. This doesn't get reset when it gets refilled in a majority of the refill places. So you will have to ignore the low ink warning on those cartridges or get them done somewhere else like a Cartridge World.
If in fact the ink tank is chipped, then they generally can't be refilled without resetting the chip.
Although refill inks can be quite good, it is likely the cause. Several companies do make good refill inks for canon but they are specific to model lines and you have to be sure you get the right ones for photo colour.
The inks you're using are likely "universal" inkjet inks and are fine for everyday printing but are rarely ever colour corrected properly for photo.
My recomendation to all of my customers is always to keep a new cartridge handy for photos but to use the refilled ones whenever they are printing anything else as it will give you the best balance between print cost and print quality.
Dear Black Rose
It is strongly recommended to change your colour cartridge.
Or it can be possible that you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
The nozzle of colour cartridge are blocked, if you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
Purchase a new cartridge if you can or go for a local refiller to refill (if possible) your colour cartridge.
