This sounds like a printhead problem.
The first thing I would try is to clean the printhead. Remove the cartridges and store them (stretch a piece of plastic electrical tape over the ink cartridge hole to keep the ink from drying out).
Remove the printhead and set it in warm distilled water and let the printhead sit overnight.
Remove the printhead from the water and blot the water with a clean lint free dry cloth (do not rub the printhead and contacts, or damage could occur. Set the printhead aside to air dry.
Once the printhead is dry, reinsert the printhead, remove the tape from the ink cartridges, reinsert the ink cartridges. Test print. This should clear the problem.
We can try a more aggressive cleaning solution of the distilled water doesn't clear the problem.
Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

I have changed the ink cartridges but now when printing black text the print result is not even ie white streaks show through


Your print nozzles will need aligning and cleaning.

This can be done by opening the canon print utility and locating the maintenance menu.

Canon MP600 printer. Black Ink cartridge PGBK5 is


You need both. One is pigment and the other is dye. One is used for photographs and the other for non-photographs - but it's the printer that decides which one to use.
All Canon printers (to my knowledge) will stop working if any one ink cartridge is empty. This is to prevent damage to the print nozzles. The ink itself is the cooling medium for the hot nozzles.

My Canon MP160 alignment is not re-aligning! Was hoping it was just b/c I was out of ink, but I replaced the black ink cartridge, and the alignment is still off. I've done the print head alignment...


I have this same problem but it might be different cause the alignment sheet I actually print out is filled with tonnes of streaks that even choosing the best one your printing is still rubbish after you've selected the best ones. So alignment is impossible when the alignment sheet itself is filled with the worst streaks. New cartridges, new usb cable, replacing driver on pc or eeprom reset hasn't fixed it. I have a good feeling it's some sort of problem with the inside.
