No there is no way you can adjust it just to use the small black. When copying greyscale or printing greyscale it will use the big black, When printing colour it will always use the small black so there is no way around it!

sorry, hope this helps

SOURCE: Why two black ink cartridges?

The larger of the two cartridges is used for text only. The smaller is used for color printing. Its purpose is to eliminate the need for a "Processed" black (black being mader by the color inks).\

How do you remove ink cart.


To replace an ink cartridge on a Kodak ESP C310 follow these steps:

1) Make sure your printer is on.
2) Lift the printer access door, and wait for the carriage to move to a position where you can access it. The ink cartridges are located in the printhead.
3) Pinch the tab on the ink cartridge.
4) Lift the ink cartridge out of the printhead.
5) Remove the new ink cartridge from its bag.
IMPORTANT:To prevent the printhead from drying out, insert the ink cartridge into the printhead immediately.
6) Remove the protective cap from the cartridge.
7) Insert the ink cartridge into the printhead.
8) Press down on the ink cartridge tab until you hear a click.
9) Close the printer access door.

That completes changing the ink cartridges.

Thank

My PGBK ink cartridge is not printing. I just replaced it. Everything else is working fine. I have done several cleaning jobs on it and the test prints that I print don't even show PGBK or the black...


the PGBK ink cartridge might not be getting a good connection you might have to remove it and check the connections or clean the connection bars

You might have to uninstall the printer restart your computer then reinstall your printer

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you

might see a yellow? ! question exclamation mark or a red X this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click you will have options to update driver,disable,uninstall or select properties again you will have the similiar options also you can troubleshoot the device
hope this helps you

Canon MX850. Print blank after ink changes. The black ink, PGBK-5, ran out so I replaced it with a cheap generic ink tank. But it didn't work, nothing print, not even color copy. I thought the ink is bad...


That is a common problem on all Canon printers, the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, has a pump inside and hoses that go to the filters and ink absorbers. When that unit goes out you need a replacement. A job best done in a shop. When the printhead is not cleaned and primed properly you get blank pages no matter how full the inks are.

Won't recognize ink cartridge


Try this. Insert only 5 only ink tank, without LM. See status monitor. All 5 ink status look gray? and LM look cross. Try to another ink tank left. Last, insert all ink tank. All ink tank not recognized (cross sign)? If yes, the problem probably is epprom.

Error code 510


If the error code is actually 5100, this is how you fix it:

Open the paper output tray.
Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
Open the inner cover.
CAUTION:
a. Do not try to manually move or stop the Print Head Holder.
b. Do not touch any metal parts.

Press down on the ink tank until a click is heard, thereby making sure the ink tank is seated properly.
Note:
Make sure that the ink tank is inserted in the slot that corresponds to the ink tank's color.

Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red
Note:
Ink Tank Lamp
You can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.

- On: The printer is ready to print.
- Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
- Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
- Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.
Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).
Note:
When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam your finger.
When starting printing next time, the print head cleaning launches automatically.

If you haven't installed ink recently -- then you are out of ink and that is why you ink out light is flickering.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

My MFC-210C always says replace ink.


Try this: Unplug machine from power. Wait 5 min.  Open scanner cover and take the carts out of the holder. Close cover. Plug machine to power. Machine will cycle and demands the carts. Use all NEW carts: Insert carts as demanded and answer question shown on display.

Always print until machine STOPPS printing because of EMPTY cart. Change cart then and machine will print the rest of job!
Plz, never change carts when it says NEAR EMPTY: This will cause a lot of trouble ;-)

Take all carts out. Close cover. Unplug machine from power. Wait a minute. Plug in machine to power. Machine demands carts. Insert new (!) cart as demanded from machine. In case when asked push 1 for YES: cart changed.

BTW:
Always print until machine stopps printing. Display says NO INK XY. After replacing the cart machine will print the rest data out of its memory.

NEVER change cart when machine says low ink (This is only a hint to buy a new cart!). At this point the cart has about one third of ink left!
