    my printer will print all colours, but not black- it simply misses black from the page, printing colours as normal.

  • Janis Hane Aug 04, 2008

    It seems that July 31 was the day for more than 1 Canon i560 to stop printing black... I have tried everything including changing the black cartridge with another full one. What is happening?

    My printer does not print black, when I am printing documents, but when I print test page it works normally. I tried everything. I thought that the reason could be windows vista... Please help....

    Cleaning the print head is a waste of time. My i560 does the same thing, but prints graphics in black and/or color perfectly--so it cannot be the printhead. It is the printer itself. This is a common problem with this printer, which otherwise works great. Wish Canon would offer a little support here.

    Ok the print head is fine I've printed out endless test documents and they all print with black, however trying to print a document from word nothing will print in black only sometimes grey and all other colours. I've gone through every print option nothing is working and nothing will make it print normal black text drivers are up to date.

    I'm using Vista Home.

It's likely the print head is clogged. You have 2 options:
1) Remove and clean the print head. Open the printer and lift the gray lever and just pull out the print head. There are no tabs to push, it simply slides out. Search the web for cleaning techniques. Looks like people have tried hot water, isopropyl alcohol, and ammonia. I don't know what the best technique is. It's probably a good idea to finish with a distilled water rinse and soak up the excess water with regular towels or paper towels. Remember to clean the ink jet at the bottom of the print head and not the electronic circuitry at the back of the print head.
2) Buy a replacement print head for $50-$65 off the web.
Hope that helps :-)

My i560 Canon printer prints all colors but not the black ink


after a month of not using the printer, most probably the print head is clogged.. try using the printer utility to clean the print head.. it's under the printer properties.. normally that should resolve the print missing issue...unless your print head is really clogged up...
some would suggest to partial soak the print head onto warm water..but it doesn't work everytime..

Canon i560 won't print black text anymore


I have now found the solution elsewhere in the internet: black text only prints on the Canon i560 if selct "normal paper", but not,for instance, if you have "professional photo-paper" selected.

Canon i560s prints all colors except black


I had a similar problem and found out that you have to specify printing on plain paper. If you choose paper other than plain paper, it will make the black from other colors. Check also that all of your cartridges are seated properly. My magenta was not pushed all the way down so I got green instead of black ink when it mixed the colors to make black.
