    Hi, I'm brand new to the Community so hello to everyone, I'm from the UK if that makes any difference.

    I have a Canon Pixma iP7250 which I have never had any problems with. Recently I'd not used the printer for about two months, I was moving house and it was all boxed up but stored the right way up. Anyway about two weeks ago I plugged the printer in and did a couple of test print pictures which came out perfectly. Anyway a couple of the inks, including both blacks and yellow I think, but DEFINITELY black as here in lies the problem, needed changing as they were running low (this hadn't effected the quality of the two test prints I'd done).

    I had a box of brand new inks, compatibles which I've used since day one of using the printer, actually they weren't brand new they were about two months old. After doing the appropriate ink changes I thought things would be fine so i just printed a picture but it came out with none of the black from the cartridge used for printing pictures not text, outlines etc. So I did a deep nozzle clean or whatever its called and when i printed the test page all the lines were solid but the black, nothing what so ever, not even a little smudge. I went to a shop near me that does compatibles and bought a couple, got home feeling great, put one in, the exact same thing, no black at all.

    Can someone PLEASE help me but when it come to printers I'm no expert (as in going inside them) but any help at all would be massively appreciated.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this, Paul. X
