You will have to replace your cartridge, even if the printer still shows a good ink level bare in mind that is only estimativ. After you replace the cartridge you no longer have a problem.

I have the PIXMA MP500 & 3 of m ink cartridges #8 blue, magenta & yellow ran out of ink but I have a brand new #8 black & #5 pgbk that I changed. Now I just want to print from the black ink...


Unfortunately, the printer is designed to need all of the ink cartridges in place and no empty ink cartridges. This is designed to protect the ink system from damage.

There is a way to print a color document in black and white but it won't help with your issue. (Enter the Printing Preferences by right clicking on the icon for the Canon MP500 in the Devices and Printers Panel (Win7). (It's Printers for the Vista Classic View and Printers and Faxes for XP) Then put a check mark in the box for Greyscale Printing in the main tab. Then click OK and close the window. There is a similar method for Mac OS versions.)

I wish that I had better news.

My canon pixma mp620 won't print black ink but other colors print ok.


Does printer have 2 black cartridges, 1 large 1 small? if so, the small black one and colors only takes care of the color print jobs and the large black one, the main black and white jobs. Make sure you don't have an empty large black cartridge.

Put new black canon 3-e ink in canon Pixma ip 5000 black line of print have a white horizontal stripe through center. I don't seem to have a repair utility t o clean heads and align. Mac OS 10.4.11


The clean heads option should be in the Preferences/Maintenance tab where you go to do other things, e.g. alignment, ink counter reset, etc. If you cannot see this, you mmay need to reinstall the driver for the printer. You could also ask Canon. Finally, if the catridge is a refill or compatible, try a genuine Canon black cartridge.

Starts to feed paper and then stops and says it is jammed, it's not.


We have become aware of an incompatibility between the ZoomAlbum software and the Canon PIXMA printers listed below. This issue applies only when using the ZoomAlbum software to print Photo Album covers with Mac OS X.
Affected Models
PIXMA MP240, MP250, MP480, MP490, MP560, MP620, MP640, MP980, MP990, MX320, MX330, MX860, iP3600, iP4600, iP4700 Printers
Phenomenon
The affected PIXMA printers are designed to feed paper via the rear tray with a center-feed mechanism and two paper guides. However, the ZoomAlbum software was intended to feed paper from the rear tray in printers with a right-feed mechanism and a single paper guide. As a result, when using the ZoomAlbum software with Mac OS X to print Photo Album covers with the affected Canon PIXMA printers, the printed image may shift.
adv_zoomalbum_1.jpg Countermeasure
To remedy this problem, please use the following settings when printing Photo Album covers with Mac OS X:
1. Click System Preferences
2. Click Print & Fax
3. Select your Canon PIXMA printer as the default printer
4. Select DL Envelope for Default Paper Size in Page Setup
Note: Be sure to change the Default Paper Size back to Letter after printing the cover.
