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):
    -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 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:

How to load a MP130 cartridge?

  • 1 Turn on the printer and check the LCD screen for an indication of which ink cartridges are low. Note that recycled ink cartridges sometimes read "Ink low" even when they still have ink, so print a test page if you're not sure.
  • 2 Expose the ink tray by lifting the entire LCD control panel, which is attached to the underside of the copier tray.
  • 3 Pull out the used ink cartridge by pulling straight up from the print head,

  • 4, insert the new cartridge into the print head and push down until you feel a click. Close the printer lid and let the printer reset the ink tray.
  • 5 Print a test page to make sure the new ink works. If it doesn't, you may have forgotten to remove the protective tab under the cartridge.

    We can't get our wireless canon printer to print from our new HP laptop, can you give us any help on what we can do?

    mp 560

    I'd say avoid. I used to love Canon printers. I could not praise them enough.

    I thought I'd buy Canon printers for ever. I have recently bought the MP640 which replaced the 610 that I had and was the most tremendous printer even.

    The 640 cost me £180 ($265) and it is shocking. Black text comes out charcoal grey colour and any black in graphics is nowhere near black, again it's a charcoal grey that is horrible.

    The 560 uses the exact same ink cartridges so you will presumable have the same problem with text as the pigment black that is used for text is not black. If the cartridge is dabbed on a sheet of kitchen paper to transfer ink it is very pale black (this photo black by the looks which is basicly just a paler versions of regual ink) and this will reflect in the text.

    I wish I had never bought it as I know am going to buy an HP printer and this thing will be used only if I am desperate for a printer if mine breaks when the shops are closed!

    Some reviews of the 560 are good but the 560 is also seen as an ink guzzler in others. The ink cartridges are very smaell and when I took mine out of the box I could not beleive how small. Small cartidges equaly running out quicker = more ink to be bought = more profit for Canon. My ink lasted a week and I printed only about 20 sheets.

    It constantly runs cleaning cycles and primming cycles that use ink and fill up the waste ink pad which will need replacing probaly not long after the warrant is gone and it was cost as much to have it replaced as buying new printer.

    Ask if you can have a demonstration of it before you are committed to it before possible wasting your money on it.

    The 640 is Canon's idea of improvement that they seem to have only done for the sake of saying we have made this new model. The 560 will printer similar if not worst as the MP640 has a very high print head resolution - which pitty help if it it did not!

    Two black cartridges required??

    The printer does recognize 2 different catridges. My understanding is that the smaller is specific to photos,
    but the larger is used for everyday text and pages.
    I would get the cartridge and then wait to see if the printer
    won't print photos when small cardtridge is out. If it does
    print, pictures may not be good enough for you.

    Why is there 2 black ink cartridges in my Canon MP600 printer

    On some printers, probably including yours, the black ink will be taken from the reserves in your colour cartridge unless you specifically tell it to do a black and white print on each document, regardless of whether it's printing black exclusively. I wouldn't worry, the black ink in it's own cartridge can also be used for colour photos etc with no detrimental effects.
