Respuesta a "How do I print without colored ink?"Your thermal print head is used to heat and spray ink on paper. It should not prevent you from scanning or faxing. You should be able to scan your document into your 1. printer or 2. a file in your computer and then 3. fax it where ever you want. You may need to find where your operations instructions for the printer are stored. File folder Icon at the bottom left on most Windows systems will lead you to your printer device or simply go online to Cannon , find and download operations instructions for your model.
