sounds like you replaced the black cartridge, do you run the "align print head" on the printer. Sounds like the black is not aligned to the printer input.

Make sure all the protective tape on the Black cartridge has been removed. Also are the inks re-filled? I have seen many re-filled cartridges fail in a similar maner.

My Canon MP160 alignment is not re-aligning! Was hoping it was just b/c I was out of ink, but I replaced the black ink cartridge, and the alignment is still off. I've done the print head alignment...


I have this same problem but it might be different cause the alignment sheet I actually print out is filled with tonnes of streaks that even choosing the best one your printing is still rubbish after you've selected the best ones. So alignment is impossible when the alignment sheet itself is filled with the worst streaks. New cartridges, new usb cable, replacing driver on pc or eeprom reset hasn't fixed it. I have a good feeling it's some sort of problem with the inside.

hmmmm...assuming that the cartridge is installed properly, yes? seems that your black ink cartridge may need to go through a 'clean' process, prior to alignment(sure wish that the replacement folks would insist on cleaning out the old heads, before doing an alignment. It's like changing the oil on your car, but using the old filter. Same gunk still in the system.
