As far as I can tell, your printer model does not support color to black printing. Sorry.

The best I can suggest would be for programs like word or excel, etc.. to change everything that is black, to a dark blue.

I need to print a lot of only black and white documents, I have full cartridges of black ink but the color is empty. For some reason it keeps printing the black off the color cartridge. I need to find out...

Since I don't know what operating system you have on your computer, here are the steps for all Windows operating system from Canon for your printer. If these don't work, let me know but usually once you change the settings for black and white only, it works fine.

Canon MX850. Print blank after ink changes. The black ink, PGBK-5, ran out so I replaced it with a cheap generic ink tank. But it didn't work, nothing print, not even color copy. I thought the ink is bad...

That is a common problem on all Canon printers, the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, has a pump inside and hoses that go to the filters and ink absorbers. When that unit goes out you need a replacement. A job best done in a shop. When the printhead is not cleaned and primed properly you get blank pages no matter how full the inks are.

How do I open my canon printer to change the ink cartige?

Step 1
  1. Select the ink cartridge specific to your printer. Canon inks are versatile, so your selection may be as simple as choosing between black, color or a multi-pack with black and color cartridges.
  2. Step 2 Turn on your Canon printer. The switch is generally located on the top right hand side of the printer. Open the printer's lid.
  3. Step 3 Wait a moment. The cartridge carrier will automatically disengage.
  4. Step 4 Put your hand behind the existing ink cartridge and pull the cartridge towards you until it pops out. Dispose of or recycle the used cartridge.
  5. Step 5 Carefully pull the tape off the new cartridge.
  6. Step 6 Position the new cartridge into the cartridge carrier. Make sure it is facing the correct position.
  7. Step 7 Press the cartridge carrier gently until it clicks into place. Some cartridges have indicators to demonstrate that they are properly positioned.
  8. Step 8 Close the printer's lid. Print a test page to ensure everything is working properly. ....plz give feedback..

They are not in the middle as shown in the manual. I still can't find them. God! this printer is only that big and I spent three days looking at every possible corners and gaps and still can't see where the ink cartridges are. Will not buy this Canon printer again.

Can't I print with only one black ink

I have a similar machine ip5000. Currently have a problem getting the big one to print and have posted for a solution elsewhere. If I print withjust the small tank it does some black work i.e. type but it needs the other big tank to give full photo pictures.

If you are just looking to print typing try changing your font collour to a dark blue or other. This gets round the black problem but you will need the 2nd black cartridge for full colour work.

Hope this helps.

Mike
