You can select which ink cartridge the printer uses within the printer driver. If you have it selected to Black Only, the color ink will not print. To change the ink cartridge setting, please follow these steps:

The procedure for specifying the ink cartridge is as follows:

Does anyone know how to turn on some setting I have apparently turned off that will make my Canon MX410 printer print again with color?
So this is like being held hostage. My MX410 has worked fine for 2-3 years. Now, all of the sudden, when I put new Cannon Brand replacement ink cartridges in the printer, it automatically says "Ink is Low". WHAT? They are new!! A week later, "Out of Ink". Practically new cartridges. I noticed that the label on the "New" cartridges was a cross-referenced version. It seems like I am being forced to upgrade from my current printer to a new one because they have engineered the cartridges to no longer work in the old printer even though they are suppose to work. It s like they are trying to win by attrition. They seem to want us to just get so frustrated that we give up and buy a new machine.

I did what was instructed and the printer still will not print in color when the ink Cartridge setting is on "Both black and color". So I then clicked on color only and it did not print anything/blank page came out. I know I have a good color cartridge in the machine because I just installed it before trying this. Can someone help with this issue?

Please remove the color ink cartridge from your PIXMA MX410. Inspect it to make sure that there is no orange tape or cellphane on the cartridge. Once done, please reinsert the ink cartridge back into your PIXMA MX410.
Next, please perform a test page:
1. Press the MENU button repeatedly until MAINTENANCE is displayed in the LCD of your PIXMA MX410.
2. Press the arrow buttons until NOZZLE CHECK is displayed in the LCD, and then press OK.
A test page will print. Does your test page look like the example below?
If not, please perform a few cleanings. To do this, please:
1. Press the MENU button repeatedly until Maintenance appears.
2. Use the arrow buttons to select CLEANING and press OK.
Once the cleaning is complete, please print another test page.
