Are you sure you removed every trace of the orange sticker? Is the light to the cartridge flashing or off?

The printer's lying to me


The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

Canon Pixma MX300 won't print black anymore! How to fix?


I have used "refill" kits in the past and for the time and effort involved you might just try finding a local retailer that will give you credit for the empty cartridge to replace with a professionally refilled one.

The problem with refilling the same cartridge over and over again is that they will, eventually, need to be replaced. I would suggest that you

1 - Make sure there is nothing plugging the hole at the top of the cartridge to allow air in, which is needed to let the ink flow out.

2- Install another cartridge and you get the same problem, then it narrows your fix to something with the printer.

3 - If it is the printer, I were rubber gloves and use "denatured alcohol" and a rag (no not use anything with paper as it can tear and leave pieces inside causing the printer to jamb) and after removing all of the cartridges wipe down anything that I can reach inside the printer.

4 - Although you have tried the DEEP CLEAN, if the none of the above works for you, try the NOZZLE CLEAN. If you are still having a problem then either re-post the problem or doe a Google Search listing the model of the printer you have, you may find out it is a problem that others have experienced and there is no solution.

Good Luck

My Pinnacle Pro 901 is set to print using black ink only but it keeps telling me I need to replace color cartridges and won't print.


You won't be able to print if one of the cartridges is out of ink. The printer needs all cartridges with sufficient ink levels to prevent damaging the printhead.

Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.

I have a PIXMA iP4300 and just want to use it for black and white document printing. My 'M' and 'C' color cartridges ran out a while ago and I disposed of them but didn't replace them...


Hello,
Most of the Canon printers form the PIXMA iP series block printing when one of the cartridges is empty. You have some options: 1) change the cartridges (with original or compatible) 2) buy a chip resetter and reset the empty cartridges chip so they can cheat the printer that they are full. This way you will clog the nozzles of your print head and the printer will become useless and won't print.
That's why I suggest you to but even cheap compatible cartridges and replace them.
Hope this helps. Alex

None of the cartridges can be empty if you want to print.
Even if you only want to print black, just black you need to
replace the other three cartridges.
Yes color laser printing is expensive.

Ran out of black ink. replaced cartridge. now


If it ran dry before you replaced it then you need to do a deep clean of the head. This can be done under the maintenance tab of printer properties. If that doesn't get it working then physically remove the print head and clean it with a water moistened cotton bud (make sure you use a separate cotton bud for each ink nozzle). Running a cartridge completely dry can (and often does) damage the print head (overheats due to lack of cooling provided by the ink flow).
