Pixma 4200 not printing text

Hey everyone..I justed installed a new printhead and new black carteridges (Canon) in my printer. Everything prints out except the PGBK cartridge...nothing! All other cartridegs print out fine.  I wont let me even align the printhead saying nozzlees possibly clogged.  Its brand new?!  Any ideas?  Thanks

Hi Skipper,

 

I recommend performing a reset of the printer. While the printer is on, unplug the power cord from the printer and let it sit for 60 seconds. While the power is off, press the power button 5 times. After 60 seconds plug the power cord back in and power on the printer.

 

Once that is done, please perform a nozzle cleaning just to try and get the ink flowing. Please click HERE for the steps.

 

If this does not resolve the issue, the printer will need to be replaced since it was retired in 2011 and repair service is no longer available.

  Sorry for the late reply....I did what you told me to do...resetting the printer...Nothing changed. The PGBK is non-existent when checking the nozzles. All other colors and the other black ink areperfect.  I thing the printhead is defective, hard to believe because it was brand new!  I have been back to using the old printhead which works fine..The reason I had switched printheads is because the old head seemed to seep black ink on bottom of head, so I was constantly cleaning nozzles once a day, depending on printer use.
