This article explains how you can print using just the black or color cartridge in your PIXMA TS3700 series printer.


If you want to print using only the black ink or the color ink cartridge, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the printer driver setup window.

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

  3. Select the ink cartridge(s) to be used for printing and click OK.
    When you print, the specified cartridge(s) will be used.

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

  • Other than Plain Paper, Ink 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

  • Don't detach an ink cartridge that is not in use. Printing can't be performed if an ink cartridge is detached.
