Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

The Canon rep told you the correct information. The printer companies have included circuits on their cartridges that will not allow you to refill them. The printer reads the code and knows that the cartridge already ran out of ink. To date no one has figured out a hack for this issue.

Those cartridges don't refill unless you have a way to reset the internal chip. Check online for refillable cartridges or a chip resetter. For priming you go into printer properties and choose maintenance and head cleaning, or choose cleaning from the front panel.

As you dont want to use the colour ink,When you give the print command you wil get the print properties page ,In that you can select black and white so that you wil not use up the colour catridge. It uses black catridge only.
