Ensure you are using original HP cartridges. Using refilled/generic inks can cause this problem.
If you are using original inks, try cleaning the contacts of the cartridges gently with isopropyl alcohol. Should it still fail, get them replaced.

The above solution was offered by IrishDruid, posted on Jun 01, 2008. I tried it (using alchohol swabs) it worked perfectly.

What ink cartridges does a canon mp520 take? currently using 5 PGBK black, have been told I can use 8 black, but don't know how to install it


Your printer uses 4 cartridges: PGI-5 Black and CLI-8 (Cyan/Magenta/Yellow). Unless you have a slot for a fifth cartridge, CLI-8BK cannot be used in your printer.


As for installing new cartridges:
  1. Turn your printer on.Open the printer's lid. The printer will automatically move the ink cartridges to the center of the opening.
  2. Unplug the printer's power supply cord from the electrical outlet to avoid the risk of an electrical shock.
  3. Remove the printer cartridges by first pressing down on the top of each cartridge housing. Pressing down on the cartridge housings will cause the top of each housing to automatically lift up, thereby exposing the cartridges. Lift the cartridges out of each cartridge housing to remove them.
  4. Install the replacement ink cartridges by first removing the orange safety tape located on either the top or the bottom of each cartridge, depending on the particular type of cartridge. The safety tape ensures that the cartridges do not leak ink before being installed. To remove the tape, simply pull the orange tab on the end of each piece of tape away from each cartridge. Position each cartridge into its cartridge housing so that the printed words on top of the each cartridge faces towards the front of the printer, then close the tops of the cartridge housings.
  5. Plug the printer's power cord into an electrical outlet, then close the access panel by pressing down on the panel.
  6. Turn the printer on and allow the printer a few minutes to recognize the new cartridges, then insert at least three pieces of paper into the paper tray, which the printer will require to align the cartridges.
  7. Align the new cartridges by selecting either the "Clean and Align" or the "Cartridge Alignment" option, depending on the particular printer model. Some Canon models require the user to align the cartridges through the printer's software program. Select the "Print Properties" option in the printer's program, then select the "Clean and Align" option. The printer will produce several printed pages to confirm that the cartridges have been aligned. Other Canon models allow the user to align the cartridges directly from the printer. These printers features a display screen on the printer. Press the "Menu" button on the display, then use the arrow keys to select "Settings." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Maintenance." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Manual Head Align." Press the "OK" button, then use the arrow keys to highlight "Yes." Press the "OK" button one final time, then allow the printer to produce the printed pages confirming that the cartridges have been aligned.
