Does my product automatically switch between the Matte Black and the Photo Black ink cartridge when I change the media selection in the driver to a matte or photo ink media type?

  • Yes, the printer will automatically switch to the correct black ink.

    You can also switch the black ink type manually. See below.

    Note: Because this process consumes some ink, you should avoid switching black ink more often than necessary and select a default black ink type for the type of media you print on most often. You can disable automatic black ink switching by pressing the  setup button and selecting System Administration > Printer Settings > BK Ink Auto Change > Off.

    Switching the Black Ink Type

    Switching the black ink type takes several minutes and consumes some ink. Check the black ink type media list to select the correct ink type for the media you loaded.
    1. Press the  home button.
    2. Press the  black ink change button.
    3. Select Proceed and select one of these types of black ink to switch to:
      • Photo Black to Matte Black; switching takes about 1.5 minutes
      • Matte Black to Photo Black; switching takes about 3.5 minutes
