Hi I have a Pixma MG5250 printer. It never seems to use up

This answer was rated:

I have a Pixma MG5250 printer. It never seems to use up the small black ink cartridge - I now have 9 spare unused that I have from buying the replacement sets. When the main black ink cartridge runs out, the printer ceases to function until I have replaced it, and does not default to using the other small black ink cartridge.
Is there any way I can get the printer to use the small cartridges?
Thank you.
Hello my name isXXXXX look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
Unfortunately no there is not the smaller ink cartridges are photo black ink, so that cartridge is only used on high quality prints.
