    Thanks, but I just removed the empty black catridge from the printer and now the color catridge works without any problem for printing both black colors as well as other colors very well.

    I've removed the black cartridge but the red dot keeps blinking. Do I have to make any changes in settings in order to print with just the color cartridge?

Black ink is an essential part of the printing process. The black color is only made by the black cartridge, the color cartridge does make "black".
One or more optional photo cartridges may be available, depending on your printer model.

  • Use the photo cartridge with a tri-color cartridge for best-quality color photos and graphics, and sepia or antique photos.
  • Choose a gray photo cartridge to print black and white photos with truer grays and richer blacks.

I am runnimg of color catridge. I want to print only in Black but i can not. Is there any way to do print without having one of catridge?


Hello vpsinc127,

Welcome, and than you for using FixYa!

To answer your question: No, you cannot print just black from this color LaserJet without a color cartridge in with it. You can do that with InkJet printers but not LaserJet.

Ink cartridge not properly installed


I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

It WOULDNT work without a colour cartridge inserted. It MAY just work with an EMPTY colour cartdridge (the only printing black) but it just would not work without a colour cartridge in there
