Specs: Windows XP
i have a canon mp190 and i have just replaced the black ink cartridge with a brand new one. The cartridge is installed correctly but it will not print out my work from microsoft office, ive tried turned it of and switching it back on, ive tryed cleaning it etc. My copy of microsoft also says that it is no genuine? It is very frustrateing as i can't seem to understand why it won't print, it says the black ink is full and has been replaced.

Was the printer working OK before you replaced the cartridge? Is the cartridge a Canon or a generic replacement?

What is the history of your copy of Windows?

The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.
