As far as I can tell, your printer model does not support color to black printing. Sorry.

The best I can suggest would be for programs like word or excel, etc.. to change everything that is black, to a dark blue.

Instructions

1

Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.
2

Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.
3

Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.
4

Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.
5

Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.
6

Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.
7

Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.
8

Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly.

Tip

How to extend the life of your cannon printers and recycle ink as well


The main problem of canon printers nowadays is that it has lifespan when the waste counters of the printers become full you can no t print anymore.

To fix this problem all you need is intravenous fluid hose,phillips screw driver, drill,empty container and a lot of guts

first things first is open your canon printer using the screw driver after opening you'll find a hose where the printer cartridge sits this hose has a black stripe on it and goes directly to a catching pad which is commonly know as waste pads. pull out the hose from the waste pad and connect the intravenous fluid hose after you've done it secure it with a glue stick, glue gun or anything. Now drill a hole on the back side of the printer cover the hole must be of the same size of the intravenous fluid hose. assuminbg that you have already done this.insert the hose to the hole you've made and cover back your printer. now find a container for your waste ink. then you are done

to recycle the ink that you've collected on your catching basin just filter the ink out with a cloth and refill the waste ink as black. i've been doing these for a long time already and saved alot of ink for my black cartridge. hope this helps

Caution lite flashing over cartridge of hp deskjet 940c. error message says that there is not color ink cartridge in printer. There is and the interface says the tank is full. It won't print...


Even though the interface says the cartridge is full, if the printer detects it being empty, odds are you will have to replace the color cartridge, even though you are only printing black.
You can try taking the cartridge out and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and reseat the color cartridge. If no change, replace the cartridge.

Changing ink default to BLACK


Not possible.
Epson uses the black cartridge mostly, but also adds color to the black printing in order to keep the color inks from drying in the print jets on the printhead.
They also make lots of money that way...

Lexmark x3430 need ink cartriage


This is the only information I could find. Didn't your printer come with a black and color ink cartridge? If it did, all you need to do is take the ink cartridge out and write down the numbers written on the cartridge. The only ink cartridge I could positively confirm was the #24 color ink cartridge. The Lexmark website does not list any black ink cartridges for this model. This information was obtained from Officemax.com.
Lexmark - 24 Ink Cartridge - Color
Compatible with Lexmark Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;
Lexmark - 23 Ink Cartridge - Black
Compatible with Z1400 series, X3500 series and X4500 series printers;

Unfortuantely , to solve the issue , sadly, yes you will have to replace the empty cartridge to continue to use the printer in a normal fashion. Its a sneaky and dirty trick many printer manufactuers do to make more money off of the customer through the purchase of printer ink.
