Question about Canon PIXMA MX300 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

How do I force printer to use color cartridge to print B/W doc?

Hello,
I'd like to print a pdf doc from my iMac to my Canon MX300 printer.
The doc is B&W, but the black cartridge on the printer is low and I rarely print in colour, so I'd like to force the printer to use the colour cartridge even though it "sees" a B&W image.
How do I do it?
Preview Help, and Help for the Printer, are no help.
All suggestions welcome!
Thx, Ch.S

2 While press and hold the power button, Connect the power cable to electric socket.
3 While pressing the power button, press the "Cancel/Stop" button (red button).
4 Now release the power button and the printer turns into a kind of factory mode. Wait for 10 seconds until it says "idle".
5 Press ">" (next button) once "Shipping Mode 3′ then Press the "OK" button. Press "OK" again for "without cleaning".
6 A test page will print.
7 Open the cover, like you are about to change the cartridges.

I just refilled my black ink cartridge in my mx300 canon printer, but it still says out of black ink, I think because the cartridge has been a little overfilled. when I click on supply levels it says...


You will have to purchase a new cartridge as your printer has a mechanism built-in which detects the date of the cartridge and locks it if it was once empty and then re-filled.
You can try and ask the re-fill vendor to reset the cartridge time but not every cartridge can be initialized.
