Won't print from 3ebk cartridge

Replaced 3e cart, cleaned heads won't print from that cart. Prints fine from all others. Deep cleaned, no fix. Contacted local Canon service centre and was advised to change print head. Ordered head and changed (at a cost of £35), still the same. Tried new cartridge and still no joy.
Your help would be most appreciated.
Thanks
Daz

    My MP760 prnts black just fine but the colors are so faint or don't print at all. I have deep cleaned and contacted Canon, they advised I had a hardware failure?!? They offered me a 15% discount to purchase another printer from them. My printer is only 3 years old. I am really disappointed

    I have the same problem AND I bought a new print head for 79 dollars. It still doesn't work.



    I really like the printer and I don't want to dump it. Now I have two printheads. Anyone want to buy a new printhead?

I take new head - dont work. I put old head from my son`s pixma ip4000 in my Canon MP760 and printer is working!!! Put new head in his printer and don`t work. Problem is with new printheads, THEY DON`T WORK. I change 8 printheads and they work well, but last two printhead (brand new) DON`T WORK. I live in Serbia and I can`t do anything because Canon in Serbia don`t accept problems, they simple said : out of warranty. Maybe you can ask in some other country? I pay 100Eur per printhead here.

It doesn't print in black but prints in color


Hi, To ensure this is only an issue with the black, I recommend printing off a nozzle check. This will show you if this problem is effecting any of the other colours.
To print a nozzle please refer to chapter 12 page 115 of the manual,
If colours are missing I recommend cleaning the print head. You have two options for cleaning the print head a normal clean and a deep clean, start by doing a normal clean if required try doing a deep clean.
You can download the manual here:

Can't unclog black 3eBK nozzle.


If you said you replaced cartridges with new ones and it still doesn't work, the printer is the issue and may need to be replaced.

3eBk will not print. Canon MP780


Replacing the printhead may work, but it could be a problem with the cleaning assembly. Take out the 3ebk and run a cleaning, if the ink goes away on the pad where the ink cart. goes, then clean assy. is OK, and you need a new printhead.

Canon ip4000r doesn't print 3ebk (black)


First of all... have you tampered with the printer's firmware? If not, it's unlikely it became corrupted. But if replacing the ink cartridges with fresh ones, and using a new print head did not fix your problem, you may be out of luck.

Is this a new problem, or has it always been like this?

Could it be that the print driver is always printing photo? In that case, it uses the narrow black ink cartridge instead of the fat 3eBK cart. You should print a nozzle check pattern and verify that you see the 3eBK cartridge pattern. If you do, the problem is likely SOFTWARE... your driver settings, not the printer itself.

I hope this helps.

Canon MP750 not printing


I had a similar problem. I put in a new ink tank but did not seat it properly. When I tried to print nothing came out. Worse yet, apparently it burned out those jets in the print head! A new print head fixed my problem. I got it on eBay and am very satisfied.

PIXMA MP780 printing trouble


If you haven't done so, I would try another new cartridge. It is entirely possible (and occurs frequently) that you got a bad cartridge. Assuming you removed the tape from the cartridge before putting it in, this is generally indicative of either a bad cartridge, bad print head, or that heads or ink tanks may need cleaning.

The Canon support page for this printer is at:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=10444

However, as Canon pages come up as generic pages (without the text I input for you), you will have to type in "missing black ink" (without quotes), to see the material they have posted in this regard. You will find instructions there in regard to how to clean the print heads, etc., if that is necessary. However, I would definitely try another cartridge first, especially if you haven't had that much use on the printer, such that you think these other measures may be necessary.

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise thanks for rating FixYa!

3e Black cartridge won't print


I'm not an expert but I go through a lot of ink.. I have found that even with new ink some of the tanks of ink aren't any good especially with compatible which i buy a lot of because it's a lot cheaper (ebay). With that ink I have gone through 10 cartridges in a row before finding one that worked correctly again (I mean out of 100+ cartridges hitting a run of 10 that where bad but the rest good.)

Also, a tech for epson once told me to hit deep clean 7 times in a row before a head check to clean their nozzles.. That has helped with my printer and at Fry's electronics, they have a cleaning solvent in kit, haven't tried it, but i have run alcohol through mine but I'm told that is very ******* the print head (dissolves the glue).

Hope that helped..

Replaced empt 3E cartridge. Now it won't print


I had removed and reinstalled the empty 3e cartridge. Sorry for the Confusion. I hadn't put a new 3e cartrige in until today. Them I ran " deep clean" twice. The printer works fine. I still don't understand why the printer wouldn't print color, when I was had set the printer to print in color when my 3e cartridge was empty and all colors including the 6 black showed full.

Kind of an X-file situation there. You should try an other cartridge, maybe that one is defective
