One day a visitor left comment in comment box asking:
Is it true that ip1980 can’t print while only one catridge operation. So, how i can keep printing when only 1 catridge that contain ink?
Have you ever experienced the problem like Arcava got?. And how can you solve the problem?.
Well, I will start by answering the question listed above. That’s right that Canon Pixma ip1980 can’t print when only one cartridge is installed. We must install all the cartridges both black and color.
So, how can we keep printing if you have just one cartridge with the ink inside while other is empty?. Alright, to get your printer keep printing under this condition you must specify ink cartridge for printing in the printer driver properties. You can find this function under Maintenance tab.
The following steps will lead you how to set (specify) ink cartridge of Canon Pixma iP1980 for printing:
- Set all the printer cartridge both black and color cartridge (including the empty one)
- Right click on printer driver properties
- Click Maintenance tab
- Click on Ink Cartridge Setting mark
- In pop up menu, select the cartridge which has ink inside (black only or color only).
Now your printer will keep printing by using only one cartridge that you specify in Ink Cartridge Setting menu.
