Only Prints Black Text/Graphics When Monochrome Selected
When printing a document with Colour selected in the printer driver and a BC-21e cartridge installed in Holder 1 and BC-23 installed in the HOLDER 2, it will not print any black text/graphics. But when the printer driver is set to monochrome it prints the black text/graphics perfectly.
The BCI-21 Black ink tank is empty. This is because when printing in colour, the BC21e printhead is used for all printing, including black. But when printing in monochrome the BC-23 is used.
