Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer
Usually 'black' or greyscale uses all colours to get a true black in many printers. Check you particular printer manual and soft ware to see if it allows for black/grey only. You could experiment [I don't know this particular printer] by putting black carts in all slots [If it is a chipped cart you may have to consider swapping the chips on the carts if removable. Some specialist ink firms[Lycos] do supply monochrome sets for certain printers - check them out. Also take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com

Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.

bukes1 is actually right. I have the same printer and I'm having the same problem. The MP980 has a black, pixel black, cyan, magenta, yellow, and a grey cartridge, so 6 all together. The grey replacement cartridge is not readily available at a store. You have to purchase it online. I don't understand why Canon does not include it in the color multi-pack. It's quite a nuisance, because when the cartridge runs out you can't print at all.

Open the printer "print options" or "Print Settings" and select the "Black ink only". I am not very sure about your model, but when you carefully check, you'll see "print in color" "Print in greyscale" it should be somewhere below the "print in greyscale". Hope this helps. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

printhead is faulty or if you using refill cartridges the filter in the cartridge is blocking not allowing the ink to flow to the head. this is common with refills
