My Pixma TR150 printer has worked fine for the last couple years. I had been printing with it prior to leaving on vacation. When I returned, I had to change the black cartridge and now the printer prints only with the color cartridge. Anything that is black on my page won't print. I have changed to a different ink cartridge, done a nozzle check, a cleaning and a deep cleaning, and tried to align the printer head. I received error code 2500 on the print head alignment--resolving the code only tells me things I've already tried. I cannot manually align it because it won't print the black ink.
I don't have official Canon ink but the ones I've been using have worked perfectly in the past. I even tried a different one than what I had used prior, with the same problem.
Any ideas? Thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I put in the official Canon black ink cartridge and it still wouldn't print black. I removed the print head (after doing everything else such as deep cleaning and trying the print head alignment, which failed) and the black looked quite clogged so I cleaned it carefully with alcohol and a swab. It still will not print the black. I'm so frustrated.
