If you have not tried it, put the printer through a couple of printhead cleaning cycles. If this does not help, you will have to replace the printhead (the part that the cartridges go into). This is operator replaceable and I beleive it comes with instructions. If not, the instructions are listed on Canon's site. That should do it Ed

How to use canon pixma mp 210 How can i print using only black and not having the color ink cartridge in as well? is this possible, or must there always be a black cartridge and a color cartridge installed...


With respect to Canon MP210 color usage during greyscale printing: Unfortunately, with many of the newer inkjet printer models & printer drivers, printing in greyscale actually consumes more color ink than normal draft printing. If you wish to save on color ink, it is suggested to do one of the following as available in your specific printer driver/software:
    -Print in Normal - Draft mode (or super draft if available), plain paper.
    -Print in Black & White mode only* - Draft mode on plain paper (typically this is the best way to save on ink/printing costs).
    -For internet page printing, print using CleanPrint (3rd party software for printing most internet-based content from all major internet browsers. NOTE: not affiliated with Inkjet411):http://www.formatdynamics.com/cleanprint-4-0/
    -Keep printer on at all times; power up cycles typically consume large amounts of ink (per Consumer Reports, Aug 2013 issue).

    * Most printer models will still consume a small percentage of color ink due to normal ink/printer maintenance, such as between job 'spitting'. The purpose is to ensure the printhead is maintained to avoid clogging.

    Regarding Canon PG-30 or CL-31 cartridge repurchase or ink cartridge refilling, if you unable to find a retail / refill store close to you and you are trying to cut ink costs, may we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (available to US residents only).

    Here is a link to retail ink cartridge refill stores:

If the black ink runs out does the printer automatically use color ink to print black?


Hi. When you are printing in black but "black and white" is not selected in the printer "properties", the printer will use some of your colored ink to print grays. If the black ink goes out, it will give you an error and will not print using colored ink even if you are printing black only. Hope this helps.

I have an Canon Pixma Mp 496 can i know how much documents can i print with it in fast mode. and also the capacity of those two cartridges


Well, here's what Canon says. In my experience, you can expect to go through a black cartridge in about 500 sheets of paper, less for the color. Our Canon uses ink quickly. The printing speed is pretty fast for a printerthat is for black-and-white documents around 8.4 ipm and a color document printspeed of about 4.8 ipm. While for 4R size photo print takes about 43 seconds.Canon PIXMA MP496 resolution of 4800 x 1200 dpi for (max). It is said the all-in-one, because already integrated between print, scan and copy. For copies, this printer has a speed of around 7.6 cpm for black and white documents, while for the color is obtained at about 2.6 cpm.

How do i shut off the colored ink and use only black ink


You can't really "shut off" the color ink with this printer, but you can trick it. If you rarely or never print in color you can put in a full black cartridge and keep your empty color cartridge in the printer. As long as the electronics are still good on the color cartridge your printer will print and won't use any color. You can also set your printer properties to greyscale.
