    Hi,
    My Canon Pixma IP3000 won't print correctly, it'll spit the paper out but with nothing on the page. I have done several cleans and 1 or 2 deep cleans but to no avail. When I do a nozzle check nothing appears on the page. The colour cartidges are not used, so are empty but I need the black to work. The black ink is new and I have been using generic inks for the life of the printer and this has never been a problem before.

    Any Ideas?
    Thanks.

    I think you might find that you need all cartridges to have ink in them for the printer to work irrespective of whether you are using them or not,ie if the colours are empty,the printer wont work with just the black alone .....

    I mean no offense to your intelligence by my question, but did you remember to remove the tape from the cartridge?
