Canon MP610 - cartridge replacment problem and B & W printing.

Hi, i have just had the PGBK 5 black cartridge re-filled for the first time and the printer is still reading it as empty with the flashing red light. How do I fix this problem?
Also how do I print in black and white and not in grayscale?
many thanks

    I have this problem too. Despite only having used the printer once before, it's suddenly decided it won't print anything black!

Out of the 5 PGBK black ink and the printer will not print. Why can't I print in 4 color instead? all other ink is filled. thanks. erin


Hello,
on the printers control board you have a buton that is called Resume/Cancel, it is the buton near the copy black and copy color butons. You can recognize it by the red triangle in a red circle.
Press this buton for at least 10 seconds, if the error is not gone from the first time press and hold the buton for at least 10 seconds for the second time.
Now the printer will have the ink level counter disabled but do not worrie it will worj just as well.

Printhead is blocked but it's only the Black PGBK cartridge on my Canon MP610 printer. All other colours are working fine. I can't print a letter unless I select a photo paper.


try removing the black cartridge and with a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol clean the cartridge where the ink is. Re-insert and clean the heads.

How do I direct my Canon ip4300 Printer to no longer print from the normal black 5BGBK cartridge (empty) but to print from the 8BK (full)


You can't because CLI-8Bk ink cartridge is use only for photo printing.For text, document or gray scale printing the printer use PGI-5Bk.You need to replace your empty PGI-5Bk.

Why two black ink cartridges?


The larger of the two cartridges is used for text only. The smaller is used for color printing. Its purpose is to eliminate the need for a "Processed" black (black being mader by the color inks).\

Black ink


The PGBK cartridge is a pigment black ink, while the others use a dye for coloration. The pigment black is used when printing text and other documents. The dye ink is used when printing photos and other colored documents. The dye black is used in conjunction with the color (dye) inks to provide tinting and color gradation, and therefore is not used nearly as much as the pigment black unless you use your printer only for printing photos.

If you're printing text and documents, you will need to buy another pigment black (PGBK) cartridge.

PGBK won't print -


Had this same problem with my 5 year old MP830. It was the print head. I bought a new one from http://groveofficeproducts.com. Works like a charm.
