Why does my MG5400 printer have 2 black ink cartridges? I keep having to replace the large one even when the small one is full. Why is this happening?

Your printer has two black ink cartridges because the large one (PGBK) is used for regular printing and the small one (BK) is used for photo printing. There is a big difference between them and the printer can't use one when the other is empty. This is the reason why you need to refill the large one more often than the little one.
