I have a Canon pixma mp990 Recently it has stopped printing with the larger black ink cartridge that is meant for printing text (PGI-220BK) All the other cartridges print fine I was using a non-canon...


It looks to me that your non Canon cartridge has blocked the print head. I see this all the time. Remember the compatables are not pigment based but just watered down ink so you can get it to flow through a syringe into the cartridge. This however is the classic outcome of trying to save a few pennies on an expensive bit of kit!

When printing text in black ink, some lines of the text are missing. I've tried doing a deep cleaning 4 times and replaced the black ink cartridge. Have also tried unplugging unit, but that didnt help...


You didn't mention what printer was doing this. HP, Lexmark, Epson? It sounds like your print head is clogged with dried ink. If you can remove print head you can sit it on a damp cloth with the nozzle of the print head in contact with the damp cloth and hope that the cloth will draw out the dried ink.

My printer is printing blank pages


I used to have one of these printers.

1. Check the ink levels.
2. Try printing on DVD.

The C309 has a black photo cartridge.

Text prints from the regular black cartridge and pictures print from the photo black cartridge.

THe best way to tell if by checking first the ink levels and replace cartridge if necessary.

One thing you can do to check if the printer is printing is by adjusting on the Printer Setttings and printing on one color.

To do this you need to choose the color from a circular palette .

Another way is to use Word or any other processor and change the font color to blue and print it.

Hope it helps.

Do you mean you can't print text in black? You are correct to replace black ink. Turn off printer. Turn on printer, and immediately unplug power when carriage moving. So, carriage will stop not at parking position. Unplug usb. Move carriage freely bay hand.

I can't print ordinary black text any more


In fact, I ran a couple more ordinary cleaning sequences with a new cartridge in place, and it prints normally now. The only anomaly is that the ink-level panel still shows the 3eBK as being half-full (which is the level it showed when I discarded the previous cartridge).

When printing on my HP officejet pro L7680 the printed sheets has lines across it and the text is missing from the lined area


The HP88 printhead can dry out and cause clogging in the black part of the K/Y (black/yellow) printhead.

This has been a major problem for a few client schools of mine and for me in my attic space where air conditioning and/or hot dry air causes clogging.

You may want to consider purchasing a new printhead and an alternative black ink supplier (non HP) that uses Dyebase ink instead of pigment as this doesn't clog in the same conditions.

However, please note that if you do this it means you may lose your warranty (certainly on the printhead) and the printout won't be as clear for text as the black ink can "bleed" slightly into other colours. It has however solve the problem of clogging in one school that went through 5 printheads in two terms/semesters until we switched.
