What you'll need to do is just refill the color cartridge.
you may not need to use it, but refill it to prevent it from drying out and not being able to work. That is because for the printer to work both cartridges need to be in working order.

If you are using Windows, go to "Control Panel" then "Printers and Hardware" choose Printing Preferences then choose "Fast Print all Black Text". Hope this helps.

How can i print without a colour ink cartridge on my canon mx 310 printer


IF YOU ARE ABLE TO AT LEAST FIND AN EMPTY COLOR CARTRIDGE TO INSERT, THEN ADJUST YOUR SETTINGS TO "PRINT COLOR IN BLACK AND WHITE", IT SHOULD ALLOW YOU TO PRINT. AS FAR AS I KNOW, IT WILL NOT PRINT IF THE COLOR CARTRIDGE SLOT HAS NO CARTRIDGE IN IT.

Can I print black and white without having color cartridges?


You need to have color cartridges installed for your printer to function. You can however print black and white with empty color cartridges. If you do this you may damage the print head and not be able to print in color again. If you can live without color printing I recommend a monochrome laser printer. It will never print color, costs 1/2 as much to print with, won't dry out, and the cartridges last way longer than ink cartridges.

My canon pixma mp620 won't print black ink but other colors print ok.


Does printer have 2 black cartridges, 1 large 1 small? if so, the small black one and colors only takes care of the color print jobs and the large black one, the main black and white jobs. Make sure you don't have an empty large black cartridge.

My mp460 will not print in color. I have a mac. When first insalled it was fine. I only started having this problem after i ran out of color innk. Recently installed a new cartridge. Test page comes out...


You might have selected grayscale or it has been selected as by default when your printers color ink was finished. Kindly check the setup of printer carefully for any grayscale check box or black and white check box and de-select them.

My canon MP145 three-in-one printer cannot print because the coloured ink has finished. How can i continue to print using black ink only?


Hi joyce2020
Some printers do print even if one cartridge is empty.
This is what you have to do. Goto the print setting page. you will find check boxes for Print in Color OR Black& White.
Usually, the color box is checked. When you check the box for color, you can print in black and white as well provided the text is written in B&W. If you check the B&W, the printer will print everything in black including color text and graphics.

Hope this will work for you.
Good Luck

How can i print in black and white only on my mp460 . my color cartridge is empty. i dont need to print in color


You can go into the printer properties and set the printer to print "Grayscale" only. That will override the data information coming from the PC.

However, if the ink levels are being checked at POST (Power On Self Test" time you may still be notified that the color ink is empty and not be allowed to print.

why not go to a WallMart or Office Depot and pick up the required Canon cartridge.

Do not even consider using third party ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. That stuff can and usually does wreak havoc on the printer and in some cases can be enough to cause the manufacturer to void the warranty on the printer.

Is there ANY way to print with only one cartridge on my Canon?


2 things:
No, you can't print without all ink installed, and if you're printing in B&W mostly, you're wasting your money. Buy a B&W laser printer (HP), for $80-$90 and get 2000 pages per cartridge instead of 200.
Then find a reliable source for remanufactured cartridges and save 30-40% on the cost of replacements as well.
Just my 2 cents.

Printing black & white when there's no color ink


More of a workaround than a real solution--when the error message comes up, press and hold the stop/reset button. After a few seconds, the message will go away and you can continue printing without changing the cartridge.
