It is possible that your print head may be clogged. Even though you have ink, if the print head is clogged it would not print anything of certain colors. I believe this device has separate print heads so you should consider either replacing them or cleaning them according to the manufacturers suggestions. There are detailed instructions in Chapter 10 - Page 148 of the manual. If you don't have the manual, it is available online at

Canon Printer MP250 doesn't want to keep the grayscale ONLY setting.many attempts to use only black ink but it keeps on setting color ink by default. SB001


If you are changing to greyscale before you print, it will only stay there for that print job. You need to go to the printer through the control panel - devices - printer and change it to greyscale. It should stay that way then.

When you go to print, next to the printer selected hit "Properties". This may vary for various printers but under my Color options there is an option to print in grayscale. Look for this option and select it. Also, under print in grayscale it has an option to print in black ink only. Look for these options under your printer's settings.

Canon mp830 printing pinkish instead of blue


Hi

You have stick residue in the print head. Just run the print nozzle for 2-3 times to get the correct color.

Also, be sure that all ink cartridges are full because if one of the color is empty, you cannot achieve the correct color when one ink color is missing.

Please let me know if you need more help

Want to print black only mp830


When you do a print request and get the printer window. click on the properties button on the top right side of the window. This will open another window. Look for the color tab and select Print in gray scale. This will cause the printer to print in black only. This will change to black printer only for this print job. If you want to change to printing in grayscale or black only all the time, open your printers and faxes window, right click on the printer you want to change, on the general tab of the window that opens, click on printer preferences, look for the color tab and select print in grayscale.

I hope you have found this helpful.

While printing in grayscale mode it is using color cartridges. It should use onli main black 520.


Open the printer "print options" or "Print Settings" and select the "Black ink only". I am not very sure about your model, but when you carefully check, you'll see "print in color" "Print in greyscale" it should be somewhere below the "print in greyscale". Hope this helps. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

Color toner used up even though I selected grayscale


Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.

Canon MP830 - extreme ink useage


According to a service manual for a similar Canon printer, the grayscale printing should only use the Pigment Black ink PGI-5BK.

On fast it is 300x300dpi with 1 pass, standard is 600x600dpi with 1 pass and high is 600x600 with 4 passes.

On plain paper in colour it is meant to still only use the C/M/Y and again the big pigment black ink PGI-5BK, it only uses the smaller black ink once you set it to use a photo type paper in the printing settings.
