Try a "hard restart", which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to certain extent.
You can also visit the manufacturer's website or call their tollfree number to get problem solving info.
Hope these suggestions help you out.

Canon Pixma 3600 I want black & white printing only for documents Question: How do i turn off the colour cartridges for black & white printing only?


The Grayscale print option optimizes the look of color slides for printing on a black and white printer by adding shading. The Pure Black and White option prints your slides in monochrome.

  1. Open the presentation you want to print.
  2. Click on the word File in the Menu Bar.
  3. Select the option Print.
  4. The Print dialog will appear.
example:
sayurisan20_3.jpg 5.In the Color/Grayscale section, choose the Grayscale option to print in black, white, and shades of gray. 6.Choose the Pure Black and White option to print in black and white only. 7.Click on the OK button.

Problem with printing black and white photos


Probably what happen is that you are printing black and white but you have your printer on color mode, try to set the printer to grayscale or black and white before print. The printer is tring to get the black and white by mixing all three color, that is the most comon way of make black, so, when one of the color is missing you see those red lines.
Also you will solve the problem replacing the color cartridge.

Are you sure the text on the computer screen is in pure black color? Im thinking that maybe it is a Website link that is not fully black. Try this, highlight all the text and make sure the font color is set to black. In addition to that go into the printer settings and tell it to choose only Black and White printing.

Hope this helps

Can I set default printing to black and white for color laser printer?


Yes. Any printer's default options can be set as desired. Open the printer's properties (Start/Control Panel/Printers/right click the printer and left click Properties), and change the setting as you wish, then click OK. Those settings should be used each time you use the print command, unless you change the settings for that particular print job.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

I had same problem it wont print with just black even by using the settings.You can trick it into thinking the color cartridge are full by taking out the color cartridge and taping over the clear part of the cartridge were you can see the level of ink.Thats how the machine knows weather or not the ink is full by looking through the glass by either light or some other way and if its blocked it thinks its full.
