Answers :

It will not work unless the ink is full amd it will not register in the printer cpu as"Ready" with only one ink cartridge. It has to have all the ink cartridges installed to register as ready to use the you select print in black only under print "properties"
The inkjet printers are designed to print wit BOTH cartridges installed. You cannot fool it to print with only one.

Printer stopped I bought a Canon Pixma 1800. After I used up the ink that goes with it, I had the cartridge refilled with a replacement ink, and it worked fine for a day. Then I wanted to print again and I got the message that the black cartridge is out of ink but I just had it refilled with replacement ink. Now I cannot print coz all I get is that message with just one option - cancel printing. Tried going to the printer's option folder but I can't disable the monitoring. What will I do? Thanks
