Canon MP610 LCD screen background has gone black & stripey
I have a new MP610 that we've used about 15 times, turned it on the other day and the LCD screen is now black with faint horizontal stripes through it, not pale as it should be. When you choose a menu icon with the main dial it shows up as blue, not multi coloured as it should be. The printer hasn't been exposed to any extreme temps, water or sunlight. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated! Now I'm aware of it it's driving me nuts!! Thanks heaps :) Nicky

Get the latest driver from Canon's web site. Then uninstall the printer. Remove the driver from your computer. Use regedit to remove any traces of your printer from your registry. Install the new driver. That should do it.
try to clean the encoders, both of them . these are small thin plastic like material that encodes data to print head, fisrt one runs on top of a catridge holder.and the second one is cyndrical at the far left side of the catridge holder.
You cannot switch to the larger black cartridge. You are using a CMYK (Cyan, Yellow, Magenta, Black) format for printing color images.
The larger cartridge is used for text only. The smaller black cartridge is used for color or graphic images.
If the black cartridge was not present, every time you needed black in an image, it would have to come from the composition of Cyan, Magenta and Yellow. This would greatly reduce the life of the color cartridges.
Cannon Pixma MP610 - when the black ink is empty and you receive the replace ink message, then hold down the "cancel" button for 5 seconds or so and it the printer automatically bypasses the problem. It does work but Ive had mixed success in terms of the print quality when doing this.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
