Based off the nozzle check, the ink used for printing text is not printing correctly. Since the nozzle cleanings did not resolve the issue, the printer would require service.

The previous owner said the printer used to work, is there anything else i can try?? i cant afford to buy anything, i already got this one second hand. 

Hi NateCarr,

Because black is not printing, it is recommended that the black ink cartridge is replaced with a new genuine Canon ink cartridge.

Your PIXMA MG2525 is compatible with the PG-243, PG-245 and PG-245XL black ink cartridges.  They are available for purchase here:
