    I have exactly the same issue with mine. Colors print fine - so its not a paper thickness issue? Did we get a fix for the original problem posed in this forum?

Replaced black, would not print black, deep clean times two and still the same problem. What can I do?


Hi, the print head needs to be removed and washed with warm water, Please check the manual for print head removal and re-installation. Also print head alignment must be done on re-installation. The process sounds complicating but is quite simple. Do as if you are replacing a ink cartridge. When the print head is at centre in this process and stops.Switch power off on printer.Remove the cartridges, then remove the print head, wash in warm water carefully, do not use any brush or do hard rubbing, dab dry on paper towel. Replace print head into printer, then cartridges, then switch power on. Do print head alignment, clean print head once and print test pattern. Hope this helps as it has worked for me and is still working. All the best.

My printer will no longer print in black s520


if it is a new black ink cartridge and the printer still wont print black start by:

A: Simply making sure the settings are ok. To do this, go to file>print. When the printer box shows up. click properties.

From there, you will be able to see color settings. (ex. black, grayscale, full color.) Try switching to black or "use black cartridge only.

B. If "a" does not work for you, the print head which hold the ink cartridge is clogged or no longer working. Through the cannon window on the printer, try running a print head cleaning or any maintenance program.

If there's still no black, the print head has seen better days and needs replacing. Most of the time it is more effective to get a new printer.

I have replaced the black ink in my canon s520 but printer will not print out black


Please check the seating of black ink cartridge. It may not have been placed correctly. Please replace it and then carry out the print head alignment.

Only prints black ink text; cartridges full and good.


Run head cleaning and deep head cleaning for few times. If it doesnt help, you can try to remove print head, and clean the nozzles with distiled water.
And after that also run few times head cleaning mode.

Canon iP90 stopped printing in BLACK


hi... it might be that you need some time to let the ink absorb into the pads in the print heads ... this can take between a few hours and a day... Must be frustrating to deep clean three times and just seem that you are wasting ink cartridges, my "solution" would be to give it time or possibly clean the print heads manually.. hope it will solve it out..

thank u!!
