Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Colour cartridge has run out and printer won't print.

My printer won't print at all now that one of the colour cartridges has run out. I currently only want to use the grayscale option rather than full colour. Is there any way I can do this without having to replace the colour cartridge.

The only way to print without replacing the cartridge is to refill it with the proper ink. But if you go and buy the refill kit, you might as well buy the cartridge. If you want to refill the cartridge, then don't print anymore. If you do, it will burn out the nozzles and refilling them will be a waste of money. If you plan of buying a new cartridge and would care less about refilling then I suggest you just continue printing. The grey scale requires the black cartridge to work also. So you will get something greyish but I'm not sure if it's readable. Actually if you print grey I think part of the color cartridge is used, so you're not really saving on the ink.

Hi
Realy sorry but the only non new purchase option I have occsionaly found to work is to pull the colur cartridge and reinstal without using.'

Another one I've heard of and would definately not recoment is if you have an old recharge kit top the colour up with meths. My opinion of this is a great way to destroy your print head and cartridge.

Rewcharge kits containing all of your colours are inexpensive if a littlebit messy do it in the laundry or bathroom, over newspaper and preferably with a pair of gloves.

Kind Regards

I have set the default print to black only and use only black printing. However, the colour cartridges also get used up for no reason


HelloOne tip I know is try not to turn the printer power on and off, every time you turn the printer on it runs through a head leaning type process, sucking ink out every time.
As far as getting it to print with just the black cartridge in the advanced settings there should be a check box for this, although i have heard from some of our customers that this feature may be dis-able in later driver versions
I hope this helpsRegardsGrant

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only


Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

Sir, can we use color cartridge in canon lbp2900b


NO! whatever you do, do not put colour in with the black cartridge. This will seriously damage your printer. Your printer cannot use colour ink cartridges. I would suggest purchasing a new printer with that capability. Do not risk the damage of trying a colour cartridge in your current printer. Laser printers are very tempermental. Cheers.

HP DeskJet 850c will not print colour


It could well be the printer head (the area where the cartridge locks into the printer) has gummed up contacts. Take a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe down gently wipe down the face of the contacts. Keep wiping until all residue is removed. Reinstall a color cartridge and then run the printer's software alignment utility (this is part of the software that comes with the printer).

It's probably because the colour cartridge has run out, it needs a colour cartridge aswell to print black.

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!
