Won't print with just black ink cartridge

My color ink cartridge is out, and now I can't print plain black and white documents. I know my black ink cartridge is full because it is new. What's up? Thanks,

Suzanne "Posted by binstar on Nov 22, 2008 MyPrinter is a PIXMA iP6600D - I never print in color but I always haveto replace some color or another every now and then because the inkevaporates and when even one color is missing I can't print even inB&W. It's pretty annoying. There's a certain point with printerswhen you realize it's cheaper to buy a new one that might be betterthan to keep replacing ink you don't use."

I am haveing the same problem except its my "photo magenta and photo cyan" inks that are out. I have cyan magenta yellow and black which are full and all i need but it wont let me print ANYTHING because these photo inks are out, is there ANY WAY i can pringt colour without having to replace these one? i dont even print photos! Please help :(

When you print, in the printing window, click properties, then click advanced. Most times you can select to print using black cartridge only. Unfortunately you will need to replace to get the printer working. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

Do I have to have a color cartridge in order to print? Can I just use a black ink cartridge?


The HP DeskJet 6122 can print with both or only one ink cartridge installed. The printer driver includes an option to print in gray scale as a substitution for color. If you choose to print a document that has a color other than black and white with only a black cartridge installed, I recommend you select the gray scale print option. To select gray scale, select the printer properties and check the box for gray scale rather than color printing. This selection can be made either at the time a document is ready to print (ie., a one time selection, using the "Properties" box in the print options window), OR as a permenant setting using the Control Panel, Printers, HP DeskJet 6122, "Properties" window. Once changed in the general printer properties, these settings remain active anytime the HP DeskJet 6122 printer is selected to print a document.

The printer won't print. It says replace the color ink cartridge. All I want to do is print black and white.


You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
Note: As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink

I have an Canon Pixma Mp 496 can i know how much documents can i print with it in fast mode. and also the capacity of those two cartridges


Well, here's what Canon says. In my experience, you can expect to go through a black cartridge in about 500 sheets of paper, less for the color. Our Canon uses ink quickly. The printing speed is pretty fast for a printerthat is for black-and-white documents around 8.4 ipm and a color document printspeed of about 4.8 ipm. While for 4R size photo print takes about 43 seconds.Canon PIXMA MP496 resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi for (max). It is said the all-in-one, because already integrated between print, scan and copy. For copies, this printer has a speed of around 7.6 cpm for black and white documents, while for the color is obtained at about 2.6 cpm.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge


A part solution is print/properties/maintenance/ink cartridge settings/select black only.

You do initially have to buy another color cartridge but you won'thave to buy another expensive color cartridge again in the future.

Black printing morphs into red after black ink cartridge installation


Your printer creates it's black by using ALL the colours together. This effectively gives a very dark purple rather than black.

It sounds like you have a colour cart that is drying up or may be struggling to get enough air into the cartridge. Make sure you have removed any tape over the vent holes if you are using compatible inks. If not then try running a couple cleaning cycles via the button panel/driver.

If you alter the settings in the driver by going into START - PRINTERS AND FAXES and then right click on your 2610 and select PROPERTIES - the changes you make in here will be set as the default settings for each print job.
