Question about Canon PIXMA iP1800 InkJet Photo Printer
I never use color, only black and white. Yet I am having to replace my color cartridge because the printer says I'm low on color. I replaced my last black cartridge on 9/26/08 and color 9/9/08. My black cartridge is 1/2 full but shows color empty. Grrrr. Please help me. I've called Canon about this and they don't know what to tell me to do. (Do I have a lemon?) I bought it on 3/22/07 and was installed by a paid computer tech.
How do i find the link to install the program to fool the printer??

My apologies for a late reply. Your concern was just brought to my attention. Your printer is not a lemon. It actually is a very good and dependable printer. However to be good, it has to mix a little bit of the colors together with the black to get the desired shiny black print. Dependable in the sense that it also provides cleaning of itself but unfortunately consumes ink in doing so. So you can imagine why the printer would always require the color and or the color ink is consumed even if you are not printing any color images.
There is no solution when the printer senses that there is no longer any ink other than to replace the ink. But, there is a way to fool the printer into thinking that you have replaced the color ink even if in reality the cartridge is empty. To do this, I would have to ask a few questions pls:
