Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Did a greyscale picture, that I need to print on photo paper. Did a preprint on regular paper and the printout was just fine as expected. Put the Premium photo paper in the printer and out comes a picure with a red/brown glow on top of the greyscale picture.
Have done this before in WIN2000, have changed to VISTA 32-bit, updated the printer driver, printing from CS2 and have doublechecked the setup on the printer..selecting the photo paper and checked the greyscale printing option and also did a printout without selecting the greyscal printout,,,no change
With respect to color usage during greyscale printing: Unfortunately, with many of the newer inkjet printer models & printer drivers, printing in greyscale actually consumes more color ink than normal draft printing. If you wish to save on color ink, it is suggested to do one of the following as available in your specific printer driver/software:
-Print in Normal - Draft mode (or super draft if available), plain paper.
-Print in Black & White mode only* - Draft mode on plain paper (typically this is the best way to save on ink/printing costs).
-For internet page printing, print using CleanPrint (3rd party software for printing most internet-based content from all major internet browsers. NOTE: not affiliated with Inkjet411):http://www.formatdynamics.com/cleanprint-4-0/
-Keep printer on at all times; power up cycles typically consume large amounts of ink (per Consumer Reports, Aug 2013 issue).
* Most printer models will still consume a small percentage of color ink due to normal ink/printer maintenance, such as between job 'spitting'. The purpose is to ensure the printhead is maintained to avoid clogging.
Regarding Canon 240, 241, 240XL, 240XXL or 241XL repurchase or ink cartridge refilling, if you unable to find a retail / refill store close to you and you are trying to cut ink costs, may we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (available to US residents only).
