Working with cannon ip 1300

Can i work with cannon ip1300 printer with only the black cartridge installed. recently i have refilled the colour cartridge but the printer was not recognizing the cartridge. hence i had no choice but to remove it.after installing the black cartridge the yellow light flashes 5 times which according to manual says 
Five flashes: The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized
Possible causes are as follows:
The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly.
The FINE Cartridge may not be the compatible with this printer.
Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the Print Head Alignment

You need to have a black and a color cartridge installed to use your printer. That doesn't mean the color cartridge has to be full. You can have an empty color cartridge in the printer and it will work as long as the electronics are good on it so the printer can recognize it's there. You cannot refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers what cartridges have been in it so that it can reject refills (it sees the same serial number twice and catches you trying to not give Canon their money). You can use refills, but you need to get them from a refiller with a high turnover of cartridges so you don't get the same serial number twice. I recommend Cartridge World stores as they have high quality refills with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Cannon MP220 displays colour ink vol unknown


For the Canon Pixma MP220, I kept getting a message saying "Col Ink Vol Unknown" after refilling and replacing a cartridge. After reading some of the other responses it appears as though Canon cartridges contain internal chips that prevent you from using them after they have been refilled. However, I tried a few things and this is what worked for me.

1. Insert your refilled Canon cartridge like normal, close the lid.
2. The Error message "Col Ink Vol Unknown" should still appear.
3. Use the "Menu" button to scroll to "Maintenance" (press "Menu" 8 times to find it), then press "OK" to conduct a "Nozzle Check" and a coloured test will print out.
4. The Error message will still appear but you will be able to print using colour AND with black and white. For some silly reason the Canon Pixma MP220 won't print using black and white if there is no coloured ink...

Hope this helps!

Can ip1300 print with just black ink cartridge?


AS far as I know you cannot put a black cartridge in the place of a colour cartridge it has to be a colour one. Check your printer properties to see if you can set your printer to work in black only, if you can then set it to black but leave the empty colour cartridge in place. This works for my 1800. Give it a try.

Printer does'nt work with non H P cartridges


It is pretty clear that you have a defective color cartridge. Return it to your vendor for a replacement. You may have some success cleaning the contacts as shown here, but most likely you need a warranty replacement color cartridge.

My Xerox DocuPrint M750 printer will not print black text but will print colour


This is just a suggestion. I recently bought a Staples refilled cartridge and had to return it because it did not work. When returning it the Staples Rep said that 50% of the cartridges do not work and get returned. This was an astounding amount I told the rep. Means nothing to him but to you, you may need to return the black cartridge if it is or is not a refill and try it out again. Let me know if that works.
