Beside of the black ink there is a microswitch, I think that is dirty, you can replace or clean it.

My canon printer multipass mp370 say put in cartidage and say's regitration failed

The cartridges are empty and must be replaced with new ones - models BC-24b for black ink and BC-24c for the colored ink. You can buy them at your local pc or printer shop.
This must be done with the printer and the pc on - once the new cartridges are in a popup window will appear on the screen asking you which cartridges were replaced; tell them both and the Registration failed error message should be gone - check that from the Maintenance > Ink counter reset option.
If it's not then maybe the driver and the associated software is corrupted and it will have to be reinstalled.
If even that fails then the memory chip responsible with keeping theink levels is faulty - this is unfixable, the printer is dead. Sorry, time for a new one.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.

Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.
