    hit file print then select your printer and go into properties if there is a color tab hit that if not hit advanced. If you click on the color tab there should be an option that say print in gray-scale or black and white select that and hit apply or ok. If you click the advanced there should be something a similar option in that. Hope this helps!

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.

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.

You can go into the print properties and set it to print black only, however if any of the color cartridges are empty the printer may not print until you replace whichever cartridge is empty.

There is an override sequence and it works well. Press the select button (checkmark) to indicate Main menu. Press right-arrow (RA) to select System Setup. Press Select , then RA to Print Quality, Hit select. RA to Replace supplies and hit Select. Now, RA to Override Out and Select. Confirm with Select again. Your 2600n will now run even with an empty toner cartridge.

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.

How can I get the Canon MP460 to print in black and white only?


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.

PROBLEM WITH EPSON STYLUS C86


hey generaly if you dont have any one of that two cartridge then it wont allow you to pring so you need both cartridge in their position
but it is not necessary that both cartridge will be in working condition
so if you want only black and white prints you just need black cartridge in working condition and one colour cartridge in its position even if its empty then also it works but if you dont put colour cartridge in printer it wont allow you to print through black also

Trouble Printing


You go into your control panel and select properties, select reset ink counter and tell it you have a new color cartridge. It won't know you lied. When you choose gray scale printing it uses the colors to create black just to extend the life of your black cartridge.
