Question about Canon MP490 InkJet Printer
I'm trying to print in black it wont let me because the color ink is out?
Posted by Anonymous on
When this printer estimates a cartridge is empty it will indeed stop printing and ask for a promt from you. I believe your particular printer will ask you to hold down RESUME for 5 seconds to continue printing. The resume/stop/reset button will be marked with the symbol below. Once this prompt has been given printing will continue regardless of the estimate.
More information and a short video can be found here.

Put everything that you are trying to print.
If you have another black ink cartridge then put that in the color slot.

Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.
