We have a Canon PIXMA MG2550s

Lately the black and white cartridge been running low and patchy quality ...then via Google found out I could use the colour cartridge to produce black and white print outs.

Got me to thinking.....why bother with the black and white cartridge when I can get what I want with the colour one ?

Am I just being daft ?

The reason you should only do that in a printing emergency rather than all the time is that it'll be mixing all the colours to make black. So it'll use more ink, and the ink it uses will be more expensive.

Excellent....thanks Bazza ... that's all I need to know.

I had a feeling it was something like that.


I will order some more black.
