Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Problem with Canon MP730

Recently, we've run into a printing issue with the black ink cartridge. It prints a normal line or two. Then it prints a line or two that is faded like it's run out of ink. Then it prints a normal line or two. It continues this pattern the rest of the page while printing.

I already talked with tech support. We did the basic nozzle checks, deep cleaning, etc. but this did not help. We did recently put in a new black cartridge and the problem has occurred since.

Any ideas?

    As an addendum, I've also uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers. Still no solution.

    I changed the black cartridge after the problem started to see if it was a cartidge problem. But that did not fix the problem either. We ended up purchasing an HP printer although I have been playing around with the idea of hooking it up to my computer to see if that would make a difference, but I don't think it would.

    No. I replaced the black cartridge after the problem had started to see if it was a cartridge problem. It did not make any difference. We ended up buying a HP printer.



    However, I may try hooking it up to my PC to see if that would make a difference. My guess is probably not.

Hi, i was having the exact same problem with my printer. and i also tried reinstalling the driver. after reading your post i decided to see if the printing problem occurred when i used the other colors, and it looks like it's only a problem with the black ink. i printed out a sheet with the text in red and another in blue and they came out perfectly. but the black grid that surrounded the blue text, still looked problematic.

so... that means that the black ink is the problem. i haven't tried putting in a new cartridge. did you say that your problem occurred after you put in a new black cartridge, or did you try putting in a new black cartridge and you still had the same problem?

My Canon MP730 printer will not print in black and white...we have put in a new ink cartridge and tried turning the machine on/off. The printer is set to print on black and white. What do we do?


You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the black ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.

Printer prints wrong colors


As a guess you have the color ink cartridges in the wrong places. Take them out and run a whole bunch of head cleaning routines. I'd expect the wrong colors for a while until the incorrect ink has been flushed out.

Check your manual or setup guide for the actual order . Usually black-cyan-magenta-yellow

Canon MP730 not printing. Printhead cleaning doesn't help.


You may need new print heads. They are around $50. Or, you could do this: Take the print head out of the printer, and run warm water from the tap (not high pressure), over the ports for about 5 minutes. Ink will drop out of the jets. Dont touch the electrical contact end of this head. This may clean the head enough so it works again. If not you need a new print head.

MP730 prints all colors EXCEPT Black


I had the same problem. After replacing the Cyan and Black the Black would not print. I deep cleaned the cartridges about 8 times, interchanging cleaning and printing test pages. Eventually the cartridges began working properly again. I know this is not much help, but it has worked for me.
