When you go to save it or just before that you select file then go to print properties under that there should be a selection to print it in black and white.

Let us know ether way but its done under printer properties.

With respect to Canon MX310 color usage during greyscale printing: Unfortunately, with many of the newer inkjet printer models & printer drivers, printing in greyscale actually consumes more color ink than normal draft printing. If you wish to save on color ink, it is suggested to do one of the following as available in your specific printer driver/software:

    -Print in Normal - Draft mode (or super draft if available), plain paper.
    -Print in Black & White mode only* - Draft mode on plain paper (typically this is the best way to save on ink/printing costs).
    -For internet page printing, print using CleanPrint (3rd party software for printing most internet-based content from all major internet browsers. NOTE: not affiliated with Inkjet411):http://www.formatdynamics.com/cleanprint-4-0/
    -Keep printer on at all times; power up cycles typically consume large amounts of ink (per Consumer Reports, Aug 2013 issue).

    * Most printer models will still consume a small percentage of color ink due to normal ink/printer maintenance, such as between job 'spitting'. The purpose is to ensure the printhead is maintained to avoid clogging.
    -----

    Regarding Canon PGI-40 or CLI-41 cartridge repurchase or ink cartridge refilling, if you unable to find a retail / refill store close to you and you are trying to cut ink costs, may we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (available to US residents only).

    Here is a link to retail ink cartridge refill stores:

How can i get my Canon Pixma MX310 to print black only?


Hi,
There are many ways to printer in black and white only. Follow either steps;
1. Open the document you want to print > Go to file > Print > click properties in the print window > there in the 'main' menu you will see an option "Grayscale Printing" check / tick the option to activate > click OK > now take a black and white print.
2. Open the document you want to print > Go to file > Print > click properties in the print window > in the menu select 'Maintenance' > in the 'Maintenance' click 'Ink Cartridge Settings' > select Black Only > click OK > click OK > now you can print only using the black ink in the printer.
Hope this helps.
Please rate if this solution was helpful. thanks!

I need to print a lot of only black and white documents, I have full cartridges of black ink but the color is empty. For some reason it keeps printing the black off the color cartridge. I need to find out...


Since I don't know what operating system you have on your computer, here are the steps for all Windows operating system from Canon for your printer. If these don't work, let me know but usually once you change the settings for black and white only, it works fine.

I want to print in white ink on black paper. According to our local help desk this is not possible. I have a Canon MX310 printer. Wayne


The help desk is right but there is a way around this problem.
This printer is a color printer. The only way to print white text on black is to a program such as PowerPoint and create a black colored page and then use white colored text. You need to put white paper in your printer.
This will cause the printer to use a very large amount of black ink and if the paper is too porous then the printed text will not be clear. Make sure you use inkjet paper.

I have an Canon Pixma Mp 496 can i know how much documents can i print with it in fast mode. and also the capacity of those two cartridges


Well, here's what Canon says. In my experience, you can expect to go through a black cartridge in about 500 sheets of paper, less for the color. Our Canon uses ink quickly. The printing speed is pretty fast for a printerthat is for black-and-white documents around 8.4 ipm and a color document printspeed of about 4.8 ipm. While for 4R size photo print takes about 43 seconds.Canon PIXMA MP496 resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi for (max). It is said the all-in-one, because already integrated between print, scan and copy. For copies, this printer has a speed of around 7.6 cpm for black and white documents, while for the color is obtained at about 2.6 cpm.

Ran out of color ink on cnnon mx310 ... want to


If when you attempt to print only with the black cartridge installed but it won't print, then this specific printer requires that color ink also be installed. Typical with most inkjets.

Printer won't print color!!


Hi hofhofhof, it sounds as though you may have the wrong settings in the print driver window. Check to see if it is set for B&W (or black only) and also check to make sure the paper size is set correctly. You may have to do this each time you do a new print job.
