Please don't cause yourself all this grief. Go get a replacement cartridge and print. You dont say a word about your printer make nor your OS. Be aware that many printers use colors to enhance the black.

If you dont want to do this ... ger a black only printer.

Why am I missing colors on prints


Could be the print job you send to the printer is set up to print in black and white.
Or the cartridges are full and the nozzles from the printhead are blocked.
Run a cleaning cycle on the printer. If some colour appears continue till all colours are back for all nozzles.
If you did not use he printer for a long time, remove the cartridges one by one and put a drop of cleaning fluid in the pipes in the cartridge holder (where the ink goes in) tun replace the cartridge and print one or two full sized colour photos, till all colours are back.

I have a new black ink cartridge but my printer wont print because the color ink is empty is there a way to get it to print without refilling the colored ink since i only need black???


When printing in BLACK, a small amount of the COLOUR ink also is used.
This "trick" prevents the COLOUR ink-jets from clogging, due to not being used.

So, you need to have a "good" COLOUR ink-cartridge.

Will the canon pixma mp240 continue to print


you need to have both cartridges somewhat full to run, there is a initialization routine that the printer goes thru and if you don't have good cartridges with ink it won't let you print.

Colour cartridge has run out and printer won't print.


Hi
Realy sorry but the only non new purchase option I have occsionaly found to work is to pull the colur cartridge and reinstal without using.'

Another one I've heard of and would definately not recoment is if you have an old recharge kit top the colour up with meths. My opinion of this is a great way to destroy your print head and cartridge.

Rewcharge kits containing all of your colours are inexpensive if a littlebit messy do it in the laundry or bathroom, over newspaper and preferably with a pair of gloves.

Kind Regards

How to use only black when the color is finished


you cannot use the printer by just keeping only 1 cartridge in the printer.as both the cartridges should be present in the printer then let the colour cartridge is empty what the problem is.you can print the black printouts with empty colour cartridge in the printer, but both the cartridges should be in the printer.and if still you get the message as colour cartridge is empty please replace the colour cartridge.the simple option is yopu can get the same cartridge refilled.as the cost of refilling is 10 times less then the new cartridge.

Printing with just finish cartridge


You need to print it in spot colour mode.

Click Click File-> Print, and when the print dialogue pops up, click Properties. In the printer driver dialogue that opens select Spot Colour, click the Spot Colour button, select Finish (Glossy Finish) and print.
