Did you take the protective tape off of the new black refill? This would cause it not to print black.

    You have taken it out and re-installed? Then, I'd call the store ... See what they suggest ...

Hi,

The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies. get more help to fix Printer Not Printing Black problem hope this helps you.

My canon iP4500 will not use black ink on photopaper. If I tell it the paper is plain then it prints fine. If I tell it the paper is any type of photopaper the colours are great but there is no black ink...


If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

Bland and color cartridges have been refilled but


Ink level counter (program) didn't read actually ink at ink tank. Brand new cartridge ink level counter 100% (full), and ink 100% (about 10 ml). After may printing, ink will dry out, and ink level counter reach zero (ink out). Printer will not allow print anymore, even have refilled, because ink level read "ink out". For canon type, you just to release ink level counter, and counter just stop, but printer will allow to print. Press stop/reset button for about 30 second.

Yellow not printing on test print -


You either have a leaking cart or the print head has become cross contaminated. Remove all the carts and check the feed hole under each of them. Make sure they are the color of the ink in the cart. Remove the print head and, using a damp cotton bud (water ONLY!) give the print head a clean. DO NOT use the same cotton bud for all sponges.

If that doesn't solve it then take the print head to a re-inking firm and have it cleaned professionally. Won't cost much and will hopefully solve the problem.

There are two black inks in the printer so that when you are printing only black and white such as printing a fax or when you set print in B/W for printed matter, the printer will use the larger ink cartridge. When you are printing in the multicolor mode (most people don't know the difference) the printer will use the finer black ink in the smaller cartridge. This smaller cartridge is used for photo printing and multi-color page printing. You cannot mix the two blacks since the larger cartridge is a coarser ink.
