Go to Control panel and then Devices and Printers. Find and right-click on your printer and click on Printing Preferences. Go to Quick Setup tab and then select Grayscale.
But with grayscale setting printing, the printer uses color ink or toner cartridges in combination with black to produce different shades of gray.
Printing in black and white is possible without color ink, but only on select printers. Switching to a grayscale mode in printer preferences is easy to print without color ink. Buying a black-and-white-only printer is more cost-effective if you print mostly in black and white.
If the ink level is sufficient, but the printer still does not print black ink, you may need to run a cleaning cycle. A cleaning cycle is a process that cleans the printer heads and removes any clogged or dried ink.
It`s usually because the printhead inside your printer is clogged or dried out. Like with most printers, Canon printheads can clog due to ink or dust drying up and collecting in the nozzle.
One of the most common reasons behind color printing issues in the Canon printer is an empty cartridge. You should first check whether your cartridge still has ink. First, open the printer`s front door and remove the cartridge slowly and carefully. Look out for its ink levels.
With grayscale printing you can reproduce color images as high-quality black and white images by using many shades of gray to represent subtle variations in color and light.
Unlike full-color printing, which applies multiple colors in various concentrations, grayscale printing only uses black ink to compose an image.
The short answer is that you cannot print in white using a standard laser or inkjet printer. Standard printers use a system of four colours known as CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black).
In monochrome printing, there are only two colors – black and white. The printer will only be printing black and the white will be unprinted. In grayscale printing, the printer will print everything in different shades of gray.
When you execute print, the document is converted to grayscale data. It allows you to print the color document in monochrome.

Canon Pixma MX882 won't print black text
ANSWER : Yeah I’m having the same problem with my Canon MX882. I’ve refilled the pigment tank, cleaned the print head and I still get no pigment black at all. I think it has something to do with the purge unit, but I don’t see any instructions on how to clean it. If I can figure it out, I’ll let you know.
Canon Pixma MP610 won't print in black
ANSWER : Printer cleanings use wet ink to clear dried up ink. Yeah, that works real well. The best way to clean the heads is remove all the ink tanks. Next to the tanks on the right, there is a plastic release lever. Pull up on it and it will release the heads. Reach in and pull them out. Take the heads over to the sink and run hot tap water into the screen for the black and then turn it over and run it over the heads on the bottom. Repeat a few times and reinstall.
