There isn't a selection for mirror image, however, if you select "t-shirt transfer" in the printer properties, it will automatically print it as a mirror image, ready for transfer.

Why does my canon mg5250 not copy black and white

Go to the setup, then maintenance menu on the printer and select "print nozzle check pattern"
You should see a complete black ladder pattern (for the fat black cartridge) and a set of coloured bars for each colour cartridge (including the thin black cartridge). If the black ladder pattern is missing then this indicates the black printhead is blocked or cartridge is empty. If you are SURE the cartridge is not dry, then:
select clean to clean the print head for the black only. You may have to do this several times. If the check pattern does not improve, you may have to remove the printhead and clean it manually. Instructions to do this I will give separately if needed.

My Pixma MG5250 has run out of Cyan ink, how can i continue to print with just black ink?

With the canon single ink inkjet printers it is not possible to use only the black cartridges for printing. You will have to put a new cyan cartridge into the printer to continue printing.

Printing mirror image

Check for the printer settings, if it has mirror image feature. Other wise, or try once below settings:
To reverse an image for iron-on transfers
1. On the File menu in your software application, click Print.
2. Make sure the product is the selected printer.
3. Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
Depending on your software application, this button might be called Properties,
Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
4. Click the Features tab.
5. In the Paper Type drop-down list, click More, and then select HP Iron-on Transfer
from the list.
6. If the selected size is not what you want, click an appropriate size in the Size list.
7. Click the Advanced tab.
8. In the Features area, select the Mirror Image check box.
9. Click OK, and then click Print or OK in the Print dialog box.

Setting up printer for reverse/mirror printing

I used to use iron on transfers all the time for different things. The setting is usually available whan you attempt to print the image you have different options in properties. Under the advanced tab in printer properties there is something called media type. You can set this to iron on transfer. To locate printer properties in XP for example go to Start>Control Panel>printers>view all printers right click on the printer you intend to use and select properties.
