Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

What I want to print is all in black and white, because the magenta cartride is very low, the printer wont proceed, I have already been through this with another colour, which took so long by the time I came back with the new cartridge that the printer started again from page one..\r\nSo, how can I stop from wasting a tiny amount of ink, and two, how can I print the pages that I want, when there are two or more, instead of all of them? Thank you very much, John.

Assuming you are running Windows and not Mac, hold down the CTRL key and press the P key. In the printer preferences window that appears, somewhere in the pages corresponding with the tabs you should be able to do 2 things.

1. On the first page you see you'll usually have a chance to select cerain pages in the document. Find the pages you want to print an list them by number separated by commas like this;
12,22,23, etc.

2. Elswhere in the preferences you will be able to select from "Print from Black Cartridge only". Select that option.

Press OK all around and print what you've chosen.

Best Regards

Why it can't print?


It won't print if your ink cartridge is empty. Check the black and white and also the color cartrides by doing the following:

1. Slide your hand underneath the front cover and open up the case.

2. Find your ink cartrides usually located on the left on the inside of the casing.

3. Gently pull up (usually) on the cartridge and take it out and shake it. You will know if it is empty or full when you shake it. If the color is full but the black and white is out that is probably the problem. Many printers won't work if the black and white cartridge is empty because that's usually the primary color.

4. Go to Walgreen's or a similiar store and purchase a new cartridge and then just reverse the steps putting it back in. Make sure you take note where each cartride is located when taking them out and put them in their correct position when you put them back in.

This should solve your problem and you should be printing again in no time flat!

Color is terrible, even with new color cartridges. Black & white prints out with "stripes" across the page. Almost EVERYTHING we print is illegible. Our printer is less than 1 year old, and we have ...


remove the cartrides, clean the printer head with cotton ear bud soaked in after shave (use only a mild men after shave) the after shave has a low content of alchol.
If the printer head is built in the cartride then clean the head of the cartridge, if the print head is printer based you may have to open the front pannel of the printer to access the printer head to clean it using the same method.

Printer won't print


Many printers will not print if one color is out, some will. One thing to check is to make sure that when you print, the option for "balck and white" is selected in the printing preferences.

Many people don't realize that even though the document may be black and white the printer still processes it as a color document which wastes costly supplies.

Empty ink cartridge message


I replaced the old cartridge with a new one (Magenta) and it still asks me to replace it with a new cartridge.  
For 1 colour which is LOW, it stopped me completely from PRINTING or COPYING at all. 
Any clues how to fix this?

Color problem


Chances are your othe cartridges were low...

When you install a new cartridge your printer does a head cleaning, and it uses alot of ink...

If the others were low, your printouts will show magenta as its the only color left...

Cartridge alignment


So if the magenta or yellow are not showing up, it may mean you have installed an empty (or dried up) color cartridge. If you have it, put the "low" volume color cartrige back in and print an alignment page. If you don't have the cartridge, no problem, just print a page from Google. Don't worry about the alignment until you print from Google. See if color is even available. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
