When you check the software for the printer; see if the software will allow you to click a selection for: Print everything in black. Hope this helps.

Want to know how to print with black after my color cartridge runs out on an cannon ip2600 printer


When you click on print icon it goes to the print menu that allows you to select pages, in that menu you should have print options or colour options or something like that, you want to look for an option that allows you to select 'GREYSCALE' this will only use the black ink!

Hardly print in colour but run out of colour ink really quickly.


Really if you know you don't print in colour you can just decide to remove the colour ink from the printer and observe to know if it empties after a while which might mean that it was getting dried up somehow.

Do get back to me over this after you might have tried it out.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Colours are not true, grey is brown


You are getting leakage from one color cartridge to another. Do deep cleaning and run nozzle check. You may have been using non-Cannon inks. They can corrode the ink cartridge seats due to inferrior quality ink. You may need to replace the print head. Check out Cannon web site under this printer support. Print head is in the $50 neighborhood.

My colour ink catridge is empty, but I do not want to use it. Is there a way to overide using colour ink?


Hello,
You can go to the printer settings (Start, Printers and Faxes, rightclick on printer and click Properties).
Click on Printing Preferences and in there should have a setting to print Black & White only.

Thanks,
Lolita

Why does it keep running out of color ink, while printing only Black and White?


Whilst you rarely print in colour, its important to know that you should try to print in colour at least once a week. This will reduce the risk of your colour nozzles blocking up.

Many people have gone out to replace their 'hardly used' colour cartridges when they dont work, thinking that they have dried up, when infact its simply blocked nozzles.

If you want to keep your colour nozzles and ink ready to run, just do a full colour alignment every 1-2 weeks. Minimal ink usage there and you keep your Canon MP780 running well!
