Unfortunately, both slots have to have the correct cartridge inserted in order to print. You'll need to get the color cartridge, too. Even though you think that you're only using the black one it actually pulls from both. Sorry.

Ink cartridge not properly installed


I have gone through all the forums but none of them worked...

The correct solution for the problem is the canon printer needs to have both the color and black catridges present in the printer...
So even if you purchased new black catridge only you need to have the old color catridge to be placed in the place of color catridge....

So it will detect the catridges and if any of the one is empty it asks to select black at the time of printing and simply select it you will get a black print...

So make sure both the catridges either empty or full need to be placed to detect the catridges....

I hope it will be helpful.....

C4200 Not printing black ink, which is new


Its purely your CATRIDGE problem...so please open up your printer and check for the two small black colored boxes..in that you can easily identify the B/W one....so if its lighter in weight compared to that of coloured one....you need to refill it or buy a new catridge......THIS is the only solution to this problem..

Replaced color cartiage, now only one color prints, red? Help


Try to check the level of your ink in your color catridge maybe is running low or empty then if its empty then remove the catridge then replace another color catridge full of ink then run your printer again. If you successfully installed new ink catridge then it will automatically reset the level of your ink monitor to full.

Refilled my black ink but my color ink is empty so it wont print


Apparently I just had the same problem and I managed to fix it! Click on the OK button on the printer to ignore the low ink level error, then you'll be able to print and scan.

Mfc-240c reading offline and empty black


Regarding your problem: If one of the color ink cartidges is out of ink, the MFC 240C printer will not operate when you only install a black ink cartidge. It requires that all four catridges have ink available in them for it to function. When you examine a cartridge it may appear that it has a little ink in it when you get message that the cartridges needs to be replaced because a little ink remains to prevent the print head from drying out.

Color printing


GO TO MAINTANANCE SECTION IN THE MENU TRY TO TAKE SELF TEST PRINT.
IF IT COMES THEN GO TO NEXT STEP AND TRY TO CHECK THE INK LEVEL OF THE CATRIDGES IF THE INK LEVEL IS LOW DO REPLACE WITH THE GENUINE CATRIDGE ITSELF.
