Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer
Canon i560 just stopped printing black text, all in tanks are full, when i do nozzle check and test page the black works, but when i try to print out a plain black text page it wont print but coloured graphics print out ok
I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

I had the same problem, even when I only selected grayscale printing, my printer would use all 3 colors to make black, and my black cartridge would never get used. Try this:
On printing preferences change your Media Type to Transparency.
This should solve the problem and stop robbing your color tanks when you just want black

Re again jimmyphor's suggestion that specifying Media Type as Transparency will save on colour inks when all that's wanted is black. I suspect that the "black" produced by this method is from a combination of the other colours and therefore will not save on these inks. However it does prove that the print-head is OK.
I solved my similar problem (suspect may have been caused by one refill too many), by removing the print-head and cleaning it in hot water (I'm advised cartridge fluid will also do the job), gently shaking it, dab around with cotton bud and giving it a ********. I then installed a nice new expensive official Canon cartridge. Ran the print-head alignment and nozzle checks and it's now as good as new.

make all your printer settings to default. If any problem in that simply uninstall & re-install the driver.
If still no good, your black cartridge might have dried-up
