Learn how to specify which ink cartridges are used when printing with the PIXMA TR4520 / TR4522 on a Windows PC.


Specifying Which Ink(s) to Print With

You can specify which ink cartridge(s) you want to print with. Follow the steps below to choose whether to print with black ink only, color ink only, or both ink cartridges.

  1. Open the printer driver setup window.

  2. Select Print Options... on the Page Setup tab.

    Click Print Options... (outlined in red)

  3. Select the ink cartridge(s) you want to print with and click OK.

    Choose the ink(s) you want to print with, then click OK

  4. Click OK on the Page Setup tab.

    When you print, the specified ink cartridge(s) will be used.

 When the following settings are specified, Black Only does not function because the printer uses the color FINE cartridge to print documents.

  • Other than Plain PaperEnvelopeInk Jet Hagaki (A)Hagaki K (A)Hagaki (A), or Hagaki is selected for Media Type on the Main tab

  • Borderless is selected from the Page Layout list on the Page Setup tab

 Both cartridges must be installed in order to print. If either cartridge is removed from the printer, you won't be able to print.
