    I have a Canon MP560 series printer.

    Uses a multiple of cartridges. My colour cartridge is out of ink and printer will not let me print till i replace cartridge.
    However my black cartridge is full.
    How do i by pass the low ink message and get my printer just to print only in Black ink?
    or do i have to get a a new cartridge?

    hello,
    unfortunately until you replace the colour cartridge, you will not be able to print - even if you only want to print black and white!

    I had that problem with my canon, too and found if I held the resume button down for a slow count of 5 it would work. I hate this printer! Compared to Epson photo stylus it is useless for pictures.

    Actually, you can still continue using if you purchase a reset chip. This chip will do you two benefits because it will not only continually recognize your cartridge but also allows you for a refill.
