My printer is printing grey instead of black on my Mac. It was fine, but now I can't figure out what's wrong. Ink levels are good. I did accidentally get water in the AC adapter. Could that be it? After...

No, the water has nothing to do with it. Somewhere in a print dialog or perhaps in the printer driver, something changed to grey.

Try printing an ordinary black text document. Before you click "Print", look for "properties" or "Printer setup". Somewhere in there something got changed. Perhaps you can find a "default" button in a dialog box to restore the printer to factory settings.

MIGHT help (probably not) to shut down the Mac, power down the printer, and then start both up. Just an idea.

Printing grey not black

open your printer driver settings (right-click on printer and choose properties) and search the tabs in the following window for 'economode' or 'economic printing'. if the box is checked, uncheck it, click apply and ok, then print a test page.

Hi when printing black or grey outside edges

sounds like your black toner cartridge is getting low or not filled evenly. To fix this until it get a bit lower on toner just take the cartridge out and holding it up right give it a few shakes side to side. The will spread the toner power out inside and you should be printing normally again.

This can also happen if you moved or bumped the printer. Usually you only see this when the toner is low or after you print a lot of pages. Most text is in the mid of the paper so thats where the toner get s used the most.

Half the page is dark grey

Low toner.
Consider how often you print.
If you print more than twice a day, toner will tend to run low after half a year, so I would buy a replacement cartridge and see if this solves your issue.
They aren't terribly expensive, so it is worth a shot.

Grey & Black Printing on everything

it appears that the printhead has a problem. try cleaning the printhead, via software. usually in printer prefs. also try running a few test pages. to see if you have any colours at all. if it,s only printing in grey scale. i.e grey-black. check the colour cartridges ink has,nt run out or blocked the nozzles.
Hope this helps Mike@Compurepair.
