That black thing is the drive belt for the print cartridges. It man have come off when you were playing with the cartridges, or you may have a broken part that let the belt drop. Unless you are familiar with printer repair you do not want to open the unit and try to fix it. Take it in to a shop for repair...or you may create more problems than you fix.
However if you want to try use this site to get a guide on howto:

My canon pixma iP 1800 does not recognise refilled colour cartridge. Can you suggest a fix?


  1. For the not-so-tech friendly, installing ink cartridges in printers can be messy and time-consuming. Although companies such as Canon are constantly trying to make designs more convenient for all users, there are still several tips that can help new printer owners install Canon PG-40 printer cartridges without mess or hassle.
  2. Compatibility
  3. Although many printer cartridges are specific to only a few models, the Canon PG-40 printer cartridge was designed for use with many models of the Canon Pixma and even some of the Canon fax machines. As of September 2010, the Canon PG-40 ink cartridge can be used with the Pixma iP1600 through iP1800 printers, the iP2600 printer, the MP140 through MP190 printers, the MP210 printer, the MP460 and 470 printers, the MX300 and MX310 printers and the JX200 and JX210P fax machines. This versatility allows users to stick with the same type of ink cartridge over the life of several printers and allows small business offices an opportunity to buy one type of cartridge for all office printing requirements.
  4. Refill
  5. Replacing printer cartridges can be expensive and, if it is possible, as it is with the Canon PG-40, refilling is a cheaper and more environmentally friendly option. Refill the PG-40 by gathering a 10 cubic centimeter syringe with a 1.5-inch needle, a pair of latex free gloves, an MIS Yellow Drill Tool, Scotch tape and black ink. Remove the label from the top of the cartridge and use the yellow drill tool to open the vent hole that was covered by the label. Next, load the syringe with 20 CCs of black ink and inject it into the ink hole (where ink leaves the cartridge for the page.) Make sure the needle reaches the bottom of the ink tank and then slowly inject the ink into the cartridge, stopping when the ink begins to well up at the needle insertion point. Now remove the needle and clean the top of the cartridge off to avoid color contamination. Put a small strip of Scotch tape over the vent hole and poke a small hole in the tape with a pin. Now reinsert the cartridge and run up to three cleaning cycles to calibrate the printer.
  6. Resetting the Ink Level
  7. While refilling ink in a PG-40 can save money, it can also cause difficulties when using the automatic ink level sensor. Reset this sensor by removing the cartridge after the printer has been calibrated and placing a thin strip of Scotch tape on the line of gold-colored leads nearest the ink hole on the bottom of the ink cartridge. Replace the cartridge and wait for the computer to display a warning about the ink cartridge being loaded incorrectly. Remove the cartridge and move the tape from the first to the second level of leads and replace the cartridge. When the PC displays a message that the cartridge is not recognized, remove the cartridge and replace without the tape. The ink level will be reset.

I HAVE A PIXMA MP170 AND THE MESSAGE WASTE INK NEAR FULL, BUT THE MAQCHINE ALSO SHOWS THE CODE 5800 & WILL NOT PRINT PLEASE ADVISE... MANY THANKS


Hi:
The problem here is the waste ink pads are full, these pads are located at the lock posistion to the far right where the units cartridge holder goes when you power down the unit and on start up. The way to solve this to to have the pads replaced, they are used to collect the waste ink the printer uses to clean itself when starting up, These pads usually take a long time to fill up, so either you do alot of printing or you hve used Non Canon inks or generic refill cartridges in the past, these are not good for your printer as some of these types of inks are either to thin or to thick and fill the pads up prematurely..Keep in mind to always use recommended guine ink cartridges you may save a little now with ink refill cartridges but in the long run your printer will eventually give out.

How do i install new ink cartridges in my mp190


Installing a new cartridge in your computer printer is quite easy. First of all it is recommended that you buy new cartridges every time you run out of ink instead of refilling it. Refilling cartridges will have negative impact not just on the paper but on the printer too. It has been reported that refilled cartridges have ruined many printers. After you buy the new cartridges, remove the old ones carefully.

Remember the printer should be turned off before going any further. Install the new ones in the empty slot and turn on the printer. Remove a test page from the printer and check whether the new inks work or not. The first one or two times the ink might be a little smudge but that's all right. It will become normal again after one or two print outs. If the problem persists, exchange the inks with your retailer.
