    Hi,

    Having problems printing in black. The cartridge is fairly new, cleaned the nozzles, reinstalled the drivers but still cannot print text in black. I removed the cartridge and i can see fresh ink on the print head but somehow it's not being trasnferred onto the paper. Now, what really interests me, is that, if i were to print a black square (filled) or anything else, even bold text, it will simply print the outline and leaving the inside blank. Hope you can understand what i just said:)

    Much appreciated
    Matt

    There are two possibilities I can think of if you have uninstalled and reinstall already. I have had problems with generic cartridges
    causing erratic printing are you using the BC-21. Another possibility is the cartridge is defective. Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the backside with alcohol and a swab?
    If all the above fail try another install using driver from Canon.
