Question about Canon PIXMA MP810 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Balck printing All printing is done using the color cartridges regardless of the fact that there is no color in the documents. How can the printer be setup to use the non-color black cartridge?

    Yes I have searched the printer properties several times. The printer driver dialog (Printing Preferences ...) provides for Color Intensity and Gray Scale but not Black and White. Coincidentally, the black cartridge in the color set ran out of ink and an error message to that effect was displayed. By holding the Stop/Reset button down for 5 seconds the error cleared and the printer is now using the other black cartridge for both color and black and white printing.

    I cannot print in black and white, there is no option. I have tried NE123's suggestion of holding the Stop/Reset button down for 5 seconds without success. I only see the greyscale option or options to print in some combination of colours and no black or white.

    This is driving me crazy!!!! Can someone help, please, please, please?

Go into the properties for the printer (right click on the printer icon in the printers/faxes folder or the control panel and select properties). From there you can tell it to print in color, black and white, or gray scale. (You may have to go into the printing preferences option, I can't remember exactly where but somewhere in the properties is that option).

Sir, can we use color cartridge in canon lbp2900b

NO! whatever you do, do not put colour in with the black cartridge. This will seriously damage your printer. Your printer cannot use colour ink cartridges. I would suggest purchasing a new printer with that capability. Do not risk the damage of trying a colour cartridge in your current printer. Laser printers are very tempermental. Cheers.

Ran out of color ink on cnnon mx310 ... want to

If when you attempt to print only with the black cartridge installed but it won't print, then this specific printer requires that color ink also be installed. Typical with most inkjets.

I am having HP Deskjet 3920 Printer. When i try to print any documents, it will show an error message that " The Triclor cartridge is incorrectly installed" , although still it will print color prints...

Hi Anish, Have u checked the printer cartridges installed properly(i.e., Color in color door and black in black door). and also check the cabling between the system and your printer. and put the papers properly. if the problem again persists uninstall the printer driver and install the latest drives which can be downloaded from the net.

Thanks,

Color lines/dashes at top and middle of page when printing.

Amand321,

Your problem lies with the fact that you manually refilled your cartridges. This is not recommended by any technician I know and your solution is in the replacement of all your cartridges with genuine brother consumables. It is going to be expencive, but it is the only real solution.

Wont print

Hi, yes I have had problems with these HP printers B4 and it was in fact the INK... strange as it may seem, Ya gota have them "Full" as it were. I have "Fooled" it sometimes by removing the cartridge(s) and powering on & of re-inserting them. But eventually always ended up paying thru the nose for the cartridges. I saved a bit by using refilled ones, but I now use printers that have cheap single color ones, eg: Canon i550
