    My Canon S520 started acting up by refusing to print black, even as it printed color with no problem. I changed the black tank, even though it was still half full, and eventually got black to print. After that (and only after that) color would not print either. The color tanks are full according to the monitor - and according to visual inspection. I've done every cleaning task available on the printer and followd up with my onw housecleaning, but still no joy.
    My compter is in a room that frequently experiences temps below 60 degreees F. Could this cause a print cartridge problem? I can now print black and white docs as long as I specify 'greyscale' in the print options, but the color cartridges may as well not be there at all.
    I'm hoping there's some funky software solution to my problem, but it may be hardware-related.

    Any thoughts?
