Printing in black and white on Canon MP610

I would like to know how to print web pages in black and white please.  Pressing the black and white button only seems to relate to scans and photos. Thanks.

    Same problem. Cnnot print a simple black and white test page or any other. WIll print B/W if I select photo paper, but this is not a real solution and will waste ink from other cartriges. Any ideas? I have reinstalled Windows XP, SP3, all updates from MS. Maybe a different driver?? I downloaded the latest driver from Canon's website for XP. Help!?!?

    I have the same thing. Printing in Grayscale doesn't solve the problem. If you run out of a colour but have loads of black ink left it will not let you print in grayscale! Grayscale uses small amounts of colour. Its very frustrating and a waste of my colour ink to endlessly using grayscale or colour.

    Any suggestions please on how to find the B&W setting?

Mollmal...if you read the previous posts you would realize that the grayscale option still uses color....and does not solve the problem...there are two black ink cartridges in my printer...a small one that goes with all the color ones and a large black ink resevoir...the small one is completely empty...the big one is full....I think what people want to know is do they print in black and white solely from the big one...I would like to know also

Click the arrow next to your printer name at the top of the print window to get the full print set-up menu.  Then click on you browser name in a bar about 3/4 of the way down the menu.  Select Quality & Media.  Go to the bottom and select Grayscale box.  This will give you b&w printing from the web.

My black and white photos will only print out in sepia. I have plenty of ink in the Cartridges of my MP610. Please help?

Two possibilities come to mind:
  1. There is a function in many printers that lets you print in the single colour of your choice. Check every tab and every "advanced..." dialog box you get when you are about to print. Then go to the printer's properties in the control panel and check whether there's anything like that
  2. Many printers let you print black with black ink, OR alternatively make black by mixing the other three colours CMY. Look for that setting in the same places and deactivate it

How to print in black and white only with my canon MG5150

When you choose a file for printing and hit ctrl+p or file->print in the new window you must choose your printer. After that in the same window somewhere must have a button "Printing Preferences" or "Printer Settings" or something like that.7_9_2012_6_45_17_am.jpg
When the new window is open search somewhere in the tabs and options "Grayscale printing" or "black and white printing" or something like that.7_9_2012_6_50_22_am.jpg

Then click OK and your printing must be black and white.

P.S. The pictures I attached are for Canon MP250, but it must be something similar in Canon MG 5150.

I want to print black and white at times but can't seem to find a way to do this with the canon mp610 on my mac running safari.

You should be able to set it in your printer properties.

Select - Advanced - Printing defaults - Main - Check "Greyscale Printing".

How do I put the printer into printing in black and white only

For taking only black & white print you can do either of the following tasks :

1 > Before taking print please goto PRINTER PROPERTIES and then go to COLOR tab and then choose GRAY SCALE. Then save these settings and you will have black & white prints then.

2 > If you finds above method difficult then just simply remove the color ink cartridge from printer and hence you will get b/w print only.

With Regards,

Photos all have a greenish cast; even black and white

this is because of the cartridges, in CMYK one clolor is gone. so you better replace the cartridges.

My mp610 is not printing the full web page i am trying to print. it cuts words in half and jumps around. can you help? thanks

Print the nozzle check pattern, I'm sure some squares will be missing from the pattern. Follow the instructions for a deep clean and print nozzle check again, if it doesn't get better, replace the printhead. qy6-0075-000, around $50.00

I have a Canon MP610 printer.The Test page prints ok.The copy fuction is perfect co;our and black and white.When printing from a file saved on computer the text has a sepia tone not black and white....

just chk the properties or the colour cobinations if you choose text for printing out than it will only print text and if it is too dark red that means it is connected with some wrong colour wire

The black, print quality when printing a document on white paper, is not 100%

Few questions, are you running true Canon Inks and refills are always a off black not a true canon black!

Have you tried doing nozzel check, does the top black squares all come out ok? if so it could be down to the paper and the inks!
if you use 80gsm paper does it print ok?

Hope this helps
