SOURCE: Wont print in black.

hi,

check the ink level of the color cartridges also. because to print in black it will use some color also.

if everything is ok try this

> unplug the usb cable from the printer
> click on "start-->control panel--> printers and faxes".
> select all the printer icons which is related to your priter and delete it.
> once that is done, plug the usb cable back to the printer.
> wait for few minutes while it installs the driver automatically.
> if done, try printing in black from varius applications like notepad, wordpad, ms word etc.
> if o go, you may have to service the unit as you have already tried with 3 different black cartridges.

thanks and regards
agnel

SOURCE: can print paper but photos have green tint

If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

Red and blue tint


Often "grayscale" is achieved by mixing some of your colors (CYM) to form composite black and gray - not necessarily just black from your black cartridge. Often there is some yellow used beneath the black -- so if you are getting a red or blue tint, it could mean something as simple as being low on yellow ink.

I am trying to print a document, that has some coloured text sections, all in black and white. I am using Word for Mac on a Canon ip4300 Pixma printer. But I can't find out how? Any suggestions?


Go to file, then down to print, when the print dialog comes up click on copies and pages and go down to print settings and change from color to black and white or grayscale. Hope this helps.

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Problem with printing black and white photos


Probably what happen is that you are printing black and white but you have your printer on color mode, try to set the printer to grayscale or black and white before print. The printer is tring to get the black and white by mixing all three color, that is the most comon way of make black, so, when one of the color is missing you see those red lines.
Also you will solve the problem replacing the color cartridge.

Trouble printing to photo paper


The paper you print on is not relevant. What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black. On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended. So what can you do? Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.
