Look for ink clogged on the printer head. Run cleaning or deep cleaning after installing the new cartridge before printing. Take nozzle check print.

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.

Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

The BK5 is for black text only. The other black ink is used for shades of black/gray together with the three basic colors in printing color photos. You cannot use it to print black text.

Hi,

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.

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.

Ink Cartridge Settings


Have you tried Canons FAQ? They suggest checking the grayscale box, which apparently only works with certain kinds of printing (duplexing and borderless will still use colors). I don't understand how colored inks are used to create black, but that's what they claim. Anyway, here's the link: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=11641
