All the Canon machines are that way, you won't be able to print unless you replace the color cartridge as well. There is not a way even in service mode to bypass this condition, they want you to buy more ink.

Can I print on my hp 6122 deskjet with only a black ink cartridge? I have no color ink.


Yes, all HP Deskjet printer models feature a 'single cartridge print mode'. Just remove the cartridge you don't wish to print with; the printer will automatically revert into either greyscale printing (if color cartridge remains installed) or black only printing (if the black cartridge remains installed). However, if the installed ink cartridge is electrically damaged/defective the printer will display an alert message; it will need to be replaced with a new cartridge.

When I print the Black ink does not print on page at all. All of the colors cyan, magenta and yellow are fine. I haver replaced the Black Cartrige and Run the printers cleaning cycle several times.


maybe you run out of ink for black, try to use other ink, if its still the same then their a stockup ink on your head of the printer and better to replace it. I think once you purchase an ink cartridge of cannon their is also printer head included. Hope it helps thanks.

Printer will not print!


Didnt I just answer this question?

Your printer doesn't know what you are printing ... the color is empty ... so the printer is preventing what it thinks is an error ... because, as I said, it doesn't know what is coming. Replace the color cartridge andthings will be fine.

My printer is not printing. it will run the paper


I see you don't have much knowledge about printers. It always helps to know something about your printer. It seem you have a color printer. Usually a color printer has two cartridges. Black cartridge and color cartridge. The color cartridge usually contains three colors; cyan, yellow and magenta. If the black cartridge is empty, you won't see black text in the printed paper. Print a small photo and see. If it has all the colors, but looks dull (without proper black color), that means only the black cartridge is empty. If it is greenish, the magenta ink is missing. Generally orange colored printouts suggest cyan is missing. Likewise, purple color means the yellow ink is missing. If you installed the printer properly using the CD from the printer manufacturer, you will be notified when the cartridge is empty or close to run out of ink. But if Windows automatically installed your printer, then the system won't give such information. From the information you have supplied, I believe your blck cartridge is empty or missing. Oh, I almost forgot to say, some manufactures sell some printers (for example some Canon Pixma models) with only the color cartridge. Switch on the printer and open the printer cover. The cartridges will move to the middle. You can check whether the black cartridge is missing. Do not hesitate to contact us for further help.

Printing with only the Black ink cartrige.


Yes. The printer won't operate without both cartridges installed, even if one is empty.

Why can't I print using only black ink?


If any cartridge is empty, the printer will not print at all. No, there is no way around this.
