I HAVE A PIXMA iP100. i NEVER USE COLORED INK. NOW THE ALARM LAMP IS FLASHING ORANGE AND THE LAMP ON THE COLOR INK TANK IS FLASHING RED. BLACK TANK IS NOT FLASHING. I ASSUME IT IS NECESSARY TO REPLACE THE COLOR TANK ALTHOUGH I HAVE NEVER USED IT. CAN I REPLACE IT WITH A BLACK INK TANK? THANK YOU. IRIS MCFEE
Hello, My name is XXX XXX I will assist you in finding an answer to your question.
You need to replace the color ink tank with the same type of ink tank or it could damage the printer. Only use recommended products for your printer.
How can I avoid this unnecessary expense? Iris
There is no way to avoid it because they are making the printers to not print unless all cartridges are installed as well as the ink tanks. Using the wrong catridges and ink tanks could damage your printer
