The PIXMA MX922 will use color ink tanks to print colored text. Even if the grayscale option is checked in the printer driver, if the original text is in a color other than black, the PIXMA MX922 will combine the cyan, magenta and yellow ink tanks together to make a composite black.
To use only the black ink tank, the original text must be black and the paper setting must be set to Plain Paper.
Hello, I have a canon pixma printer and It ran out of ink so yesterday I bought a cartege of black in (240) and I printed 3 papers yesterday. Today i trien to print another paper but the light for color ink started flashing and asked me to refill it and it did not allow me to print. How can I make it use the black ink only?
