Question about Printers & Copiers
I have a Canon IP1600. I dont use colour. I only want to use black. I set the option to BLACK ONLY. but it refuses to print saying colour ink is low. I dont even use colour. How do i fix this ?

In the printer dialogue box that pops up after giving File > Print command, you should see a "properties" or "advanced". Go to the 'Colour' tab. Here you should see an entry that says "print in grey scale". Select this ( this can vary depending upon your model of printer and the software installed). Now all your documents will only print with the black ink cartridge.
Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
