Printer leaking and not printing all colors

Your printer uses a seperate printhead that is connected to the ink wells (cartridges) with long thin tubes. If the printer is leaking ink the issue will be either with the printhead or the lines connecting to it. With this type of printer though, either way the printer cannot be repaired and you are looking at replacing.

You can always call hp too though. At 1.5 yrs your printer will be out of warantee but they can offer specials on refurbished printers. Sometimes up to 50% off or more so always worth a call. I personally have have a printer that I have upgraded from and it arrived in new condition and still comes with 1 year warranty.

Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

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:

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!
