SOURCE: My optoma works well with

if you tried all the settings on the video card in the Mac ..and it made no changes..than the issue might be from the conversion cable from the DVI to vga..if you use an adapter cable ..and not a direct dvi to vga ..try to change it maybe it is the issue ..
anyway ..first try to adjust the image by defaulting the settings into the video setting of the Mac ..but the idea with a defective or ..wrong pin-wired cable is still on ..and worth trying ..

Sound like the original color wheel for Optoma HD80 is bad.

If the unit has been moved when hot.

If not, try un-plugging the unit for a few minutes and re-connect.

Hope this helps

Black and white prints are not black

Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.
