My printer will not print black ! it prints every other colour, but not black. I changed the ink cartridge and i cleaned the heads. What else can i do? It has been a loyal printer until today. please


Hi you mentioned that the Ink is new and that you have cleaned the ink heads, have you checked if the silicon Film for the ink cartridge contact was removed?

if that film is not removed cleaning the printer head will still not detect the ink cartridge for the Black on your printer.

Turn your printer OFF and remove all your print cartridges then install all of them again one at a time then turn the printer back ON, see if all the ink cartridges are now detected and if the Black will now print.

Also if you can

I have a canon pixma 780. I hardly ever use colour yet the colour cartridges keep running out.


Every time you turn on your printer, it goes through a print head cleaning routine and the print head nozzles flush all the inks into the cleaning pads. This is why the inks are levels are dropping even though you have not printed anything.

CANON MP210 NOT PRINTING BLACK DESPITE NEW CARTRIDGE. ONLY PRINTING COLOUR WHY?


Did you take off the tape on the nozzle when installing the color cartridge? If you didn't do that, take it off, if you did, just run a couple black and white test pages to get the ink flowing.

Have Pixma MP760. Problem with magenta print nozzle, which is not functioning properly. All others functioning fine. Repeated cleaning has improved the print colour but still patchy on the nozzle check...


Are you using aftermarket/refilled cartridges? To do a complete cleaning of the nozzle, you need to use a new OEM ink cartridge. Run the deep cleaning at least 3 times. This will clear the nozzle. You will eventually have the same problem with the other nozzles as long as you continue to use aftermarket/refilled cartridges. The inks used in them are not as highly quality controlled as the OEM inks so you will end up with clogged or partially clogged nozzles. The new OEM cartridges method usually clears the problem.
Let me know if this clears the problem. Thanks.

MAGENTA NOT PRINTING


The other week I had the black print head clog up, requiring daily nozzle deep cleaning [a normal 'ocassional' maintenance function]. Thought I needed a new Print head, so anything worth a try.
I loaded up an old black cartridge [I load all my own......always have] with Isopropyl Alcohol and ran deep clean on that cartridge a couple of times, then repeat printed [6 times] a page full of the number 8 in about half inch character size, to get the alcohol through the nozzles. then Deep cleaned again 3 times, to wash it through the print head.

I reloaded the normal ink filled cartridge and ran the '8' page again till I got good black output. It has now been working without problem, daily, for over a week. Clearly if it's a Magenta only problem, the cleaning as described above would be a bit different, as the magenta is one of 4 colour cartridges.
My printer does quite a lot of work, and was bought at least a couple of years ago, being used daily for alpha numeric and photo printing work. This was the first difficulty I experienced with it.
Hope the above might help.Ken

Refilled ink cartridges problem colour


this is not a printer problem, you have a problem with colour cartridge! u can fix this in 2 diferent way: 1. replace the colour cartridge with new one, or gently clean the nozzle cartridge with a wet tissue until the cyan colour mark a line on the tissue just like the others colours: yellow and magenta. maybe must repeat this several times.

Why does it keep running out of color ink, while printing only Black and White?


Whilst you rarely print in colour, its important to know that you should try to print in colour at least once a week. This will reduce the risk of your colour nozzles blocking up.

Many people have gone out to replace their 'hardly used' colour cartridges when they dont work, thinking that they have dried up, when infact its simply blocked nozzles.

If you want to keep your colour nozzles and ink ready to run, just do a full colour alignment every 1-2 weeks. Minimal ink usage there and you keep your Canon MP780 running well!

My canon i960 is printing only green


I had this problem. If I tried to print a black& white photo on to glossy paper, it would only print green. When I tried on to plain paper using the 'fast' option, it printed in black. The reason for this is, on plain paper it uses the black cartridge, but output to glossy photo paper using the 'high' option, uses the mix of colours in your colour cartridge. If one or more of your colours has run out, you will get a print with the ink left in the cartridge. Replace the cartridge or refill it & your problem is solved.
