    Your tip doesn't seem to work. Now prints yellow instead of black.

    Model - Canon pixma ip3000 - has 4 ink cartridges - black, blue,red and yellow

    - was working fine up til very recently.

    - i deep cleaned the black pen and the test print shows black printing OK as it should. I am low on the red and yellow, but I don't think that should matter, so long as the black is not low.

Take the cartridge out and check it and reinstall it ..after that make a reset .I don't know the model ..but the reset should be available on the manual ..
or ..unplug it ..press the start button .and plug it while keeping it pressed..for 10 sec..(you might need to press the resume button a few times probably 4 times.. ) it will blink a few times and it will reset itself..

    njo it should not matter ..try to get the cartridge out ...shake it real good specially cause its new..and try to manually clean it ..to be sure it is not blocked..
    put it back on ..and make a few copies and see if it s getting darker..sometimes its taking a while to get to the right tones when you do not change them all at once ..
    If resetting and cleaning do not work ..than it is the print head to blame ..

It only prints green copies, no black. Why


Needs the black ink cartridge replaced/refilled.
If this has been done, check to make sure the cartridge has been installed correctly.

Make sure the Black and Green cartridges have not been switched by mistake. Especially If your printing black text and only green shows up.
Good luck!

Canon i250, black text won't print, but ok with nozzle check


Canon i250. Instructions on this website solved the problem of flashing green and orange lights, but now the black won't print. Changed ink cartridges, but still no print. Did a diagnostic nozzle check, and the black DID print. What do I do now?

Change cartridge printer selects for black


Simply put...you cannot. The smaller cart is the dye black, which is used for picture printing. The larger is the pigment black which is used for text printing. You could try printing text as artwork, but i'm not sure this will work, besides, dye ink will bleed on regular paper and not look so crisp.
