    Hey all -

    Can't get my Canon Pixma MG5720 print in PGBLK or cyan, the two colors I refilled on my own. Actually, a couple weeks ago I did refill these on my own and they worked just fine. Then, had to refill again, and they printed 100 - 150 pages or so just fine.

    Then, yesterday, PGBLK started to print streaky. Like, 98% printed perfectly. But, a line of text here and there had a straight white line running through it.

    Now today, tried some basic maintenance like ink cleaning and deep ink cleaning. As of now, can't print anything in PGBLK. Cyan went away, but as of this minute it's working again.

    Thoughts on what to do?

    The best thing to do is buy new cartidges. You need to reset the chip every time you refill the cartridges in order to properly work.
