Canon Pixima MP560 frustrating issues...

Hello everyone,
I have been having this issue for a while now and I am losing my mind over it...
The printer I have is a MP560 from Canon, and the issue is as follows:

I am out of ink in all three of my colours and really low on my small black cartridge. But it is as if my Big cartridge has never been used.
I am desperately trying to get my printer to print with this big cartridge because all I really print is text and black and white is perfect for what I use the printer for.

Is there a solution or am I doomed to have useless big cartridge of black ink in my printer...

Thank you very much for the help,
Pierre

After going back and forth with cannon this is what I got


Please perform the following to set your printer to Grayscale mode to
conserve your color ink:

1. Close all programs that are open.

2. Click Start and open the Control Panel.

3. Open Printers or Devices and Printers.

4. Right-click the MP560 and choose Preferences or Printing
Preferences.

5. In the Main tab, click the 'Defaults' button at the bottom.

6. Make sure the Media Type is set to Plain Paper.

7. Check the box labeled 'Grayscale'.

8. Click Apply and OK.

As long as plain paper is selected and automatic duplexing is not
performed, all printing will now use the large black ink tank.
