    Got pixma MP510 with the same problem. I have turned on Grayscale printing from driver. Printer's menu has no options to adjust ink settings. My solution is to have the empty color cartridges inserted. I expected this problem and didn't throw the empty color tanks away.
    Canon is all about selling ink, so it makes sense for them not to allow printing black and white text without color cartridges.

SOURCE: ink cartridges cannot be recognized in canon printer

Remove the cartridges and gently wipe the cartridge contacts with a dry cloth, then put them back in. Then, hold the "resume" button for 10 seconds for each cartridge, that should reset them.
If that doesn't work, one of your cartridges (sadly) needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Epson C66 won't print without color cartidges

epson printers won't really print if one cartridge is not detected or detected as empty. the only option that i can suggest to you is that, buy a continous ink kit at any ink refilling station in your place. i highly recommend that dont leave a cartridge empty with ink cause it might clog your printhead. using a continous ink system's cartridge is auto reset, whenever the printer says that the cartridge is empty, it will automatically resets itself. ink refill kit comes with 100+ml of ink per color i think. and it is much cheaper using original epson ink.

sure..go to your print settings, and tell the machine to print in black only. That's a usual trick for when the color runs out, which is not unlike when it's missing. Of course, you might just want to replace the color cartridge, just to keep your printer happy, no?

Got backup?

I have found some info on inserting the ink cartridge for IP1600 which is in the same family and safely assume that the instructions can be used for the entire IP1000 family.

Hope this helps.

My printer canon ip1300 dont print black color, only color is working, even the black cartridge is installed, it doesnt print black


The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.

I own a canon iP1300 printer and just bought a new canon pg- 40 black cartridge but its not being recognized by the printer, wat do i do

Can be a problem regarding the cartridge. What is the status of the color cartridge. Take a printout with the color cartridge alone. If no problem found get your PG40 cartridge replaced. One thing to be noted is that the printer always needs the color cartridge installed. Printer can work with color cartridge alone. But will not work without a color cartridge

Can I print with one cartridge at canon pixma ip1300 with out replacing or installing other cartridge.

Absolutely, the only thing you need to do is to configure your setting to the right appropriate ink, say for example you ran out of black ink you can go to printing properties and select to be printed in blue, in this case the color match will use magenta and cyan to create blue.
1 select your default printer 2 select printing preference from your printer from there you can change the color of your desired print 3 you can select print in color for example or grayscale 4 then print your document.
