Try removing the color cartridge and reseating it. If that doesn't work, wipe the electrical contacts on the cartridge and inside the printer (cartridge holder) with a clean soft colth. If that doesn't work, I don't have another solution. I wouldn't try buying a new cartridge, I tried that with a cheap HP and got the same result. Personnally, I think of these cheap (inexpensive) printers as disposable--I use them until I encounter a problem the throw them away and get another. I mean, the printer costs less than ink cartridges for medium quality printers that have a slightly lower failure rate. If you want a printer that will last, you're going to have to spend more. The $100 Canons are highly ranked by Consumer Reports. My $.02 worth.

Ink cartridge not properly installed


I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

Why my color catdrige is empty faster than black


just change your settings to print in only black and white and it will print just fine. there should be a button on the top of your printer that says print black and white or grey scale , its a common problem .,if you see next time it should work good .(its actually making the black color using the colored catridge by mixing the three colors in diffent ratio.)

Hi there, Can I print in Black & White when I ran out one of colour ink catridges??? On Brother website it says that you can. According to their advice the Error message shoud come up on LCD screen...


as long as the color print cartridges remain in the printer you should be able to print in only black and white.
If the error message does not come up you should be able to tell the printer to print in black and white in your page setup or print properties portion when you go to print your page.

(1) go file print or print
(2) a gray box will pop up click on properties
(3) Click color
(4)click gray scale

This should do it for you!
(5) select black print cartridge only

No black when printing color


Dear Sir,

You are getting black lines in green color,and apperence of parallel light and dark lines because your colour catridge is almost empty.So solution is replace the catridge and take a printout. There is no proplem with a printer. i think it solves your problem.


good luck

How can I print a color picture without using a black catridge?


Black ink is an essential part of the printing process. The black color is only made by the black cartridge, the color cartridge does make "black".
One or more optional photo cartridges may be available, depending on your printer model.
  • Use the photo cartridge with a tri-color cartridge for best-quality color photos and graphics, and sepia or antique photos.
  • Choose a gray photo cartridge to print black and white photos with truer grays and richer blacks.

Color printing


GO TO MAINTANANCE SECTION IN THE MENU TRY TO TAKE SELF TEST PRINT.
IF IT COMES THEN GO TO NEXT STEP AND TRY TO CHECK THE INK LEVEL OF THE CATRIDGES IF THE INK LEVEL IS LOW DO REPLACE WITH THE GENUINE CATRIDGE ITSELF.
