Go to the printer driver (control panel -> Printer -> Right Click your Printer -> Properties). From there go to maintenance tab, Ink Cartridges, Select Black only. Then click OK. Finally hold the Stop/ Reset button for 10 secs or so. It will then work after a couple of warnings.

All the Canon machines are that way, you won't be able to print unless you replace the color cartridge as well. There is not a way even in service mode to bypass this condition, they want you to buy more ink.

SOURCE: I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink

Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

Canon mx 850 problem is when the copy button is pushed to make a black and white copy the printer acts as if it is printng color. Prints very slowly. Phil


I do not know the Canon MX 850 but it seems like your printer is set to default to high quality printing. Check the setting in your Canon software for something like this.

I've got a Canon Pixma MP 500. Printing from my computer = faded print. Copying = blank page. Auto head align fails. Alarm light goes on. Have tried stop/reset button. How can I fix this?


Hello,

It sounds like the print head on your printer is either clogged or not working.

You get faint print from your computer because the computer will use your color inks to get gray. When you copy, it only tries to use black and the black isn't printing at all.

Check your user's manual and it should show you how to clean the print head. Otherwise replace the print heads and you should be fine.

Thanks,

Pat

Copies made are totally black. what do i do? i changed cartridged, put in new paper then copied. it copied fine after 20pages, copy sounded like it was jamming up, paper came out with some parts black....


Hello limay_uera

Please check your Printer setup. or options ( I am not familiar with this printer. what terms they use- I'm not sure) Ther will be options for Print in Color or Black. Make sure the radio button for COLOR is checked. This way, black and color both will print in the correct color. So leave it on color even when you want to print in Black. The black radio button is there for a different reason.
Hope this will help you.
