Go to start>printers and faxes> look for your printer and right click on it.. go to properties.. and look for the advance tab.. there.. click on printing defaults... what you see next dependes on your printer properties and features.. look for a setting that says something like "print color images in black and white" and uncheck the box.... look in to the quality or color management section... refer also to your printer documentation.

My printer will not print anything. I have a full cartridge of black ink, but low on the other colors. Will it not print with the colored ink out?


Assuming the test print page prints using the black ink, printers have a setting that allows you to select black and white printing. If you need further help you need to include the manufacturer and brand of the printer. If the test page doesn't print the black ink and Since you say you have a full black ink cartridge I would also check that you completely removed the plastic tab/sticker that covered the hole the the inks comes out of and that the ink cartridge is securly installed.

Want to know how to print with black after my color cartridge runs out on an cannon ip2600 printer


When you click on print icon it goes to the print menu that allows you to select pages, in that menu you should have print options or colour options or something like that, you want to look for an option that allows you to select 'GREYSCALE' this will only use the black ink!

Color/black mix
This item allows you to configure printer settings to optimize printer and cartridge performance for the printing environment. If the printer is primarily used for black printing (over two-thirds of the pages are black only), change the printer settings to MOSTLY BLACK PAGES.

Setting the color/black mix
1. Press Menu to enter the MENUS.
2. Press to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE.
3. Press to select CONFIGURE DEVICE.
4. Press to highlight SYSTEM SETUP.
5. Press to select SYSTEM SETUP.
6. Press to highlight COLOR/BLACK MIX.
7. Press to select COLOR/BLACK MIX.
8. Press or to select the desired option. (Select MOSTLY BLACK PAGES)
9. Press to select the option.
10. Press Menu.

Select MOSTLY BLACK PAGES if you print mostly monochrome print jobs, or a combination of color and monochrome print jobs.

It has somes spots on the side of the sheets and I cleaned the cartriges and the spots isn't gone.


A print quality defect in which pages contain random spots or splotches (click on the link to see sample http://bit.ly/mRX3qz) may occur after the replacement of a supply item or the clearing of a paper jam. If your printed output resembles the example shown, please do the following:

Print the Menu Settings page to check the levels of your consumable supplies (i.e. items such as toner cartridges and photoconductor units). Supplies that are at or near the end of their functional lives can cause various print quality issues independently of the operation of the printer.

If any of your other supplies are low, replace them to see if this resolves the issue. Instructions for replacing supplies can be found in the User's Guide.

It is always advisable to print the Print Quality Pages to get a detailed look at your printer's output. These pages allow each color plane to be viewed independently to determine if the issue is with one color (possibly due to a single supply item), or with all the colors (indicating a more general issue with the printer).

If the above checks show that everything is normal, the print quality issue is probably a temporary situation which sometimes follows supply replacement or paper jam removal. Printing 5-10 additional pages should allow the issue to clear up on its own.


If the print quality issue does not clear on its own, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

My color laserjet 2025 won't print color


If you print the demo page from the menus is that in color? If it is then it is possible that you have a black and white only printer driver installed or your driver is defaulted to black and white only. It is also possible that you have one color empty which stops color printing but often allows black and white printing to continue.

Hp psc 1210xi- the black ink cartridge appears to be out- i have a good color cartridge-how do I get the error off of my printer and print with my color cartridge?


  1. Take out the black cartridge once you've determined that you are completely out of black ink. You'll have to rely on the dark hues from the color cartridge to print in black.
  2. Adjust the printer software settings. Once you take out the black cartridge, your printer's software will typically warn you that you are missing a cartridge. Follow the instructions for your printer to allow the printer to print without the black cartridge. Then set the printer to print in black and white, not color. This overrides the black cartridge and allows the printer to access the dark hues of the color cartridge.
  3. Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
  4. Print your documents. Bear in mind that your documents may not appear as black as normal. Still, they should be dark enough to pass for black, depending on how much color ink you have and the strength grade of the ink.

I can't print in color


There are several possibilities here:

1) The default printer settings in your OS (operating system) were set to black only. If you are in windows, go to the windows control panel and choose the printers icon. Find your printer and modify the settings to allow color.

2) The application is overriding the default print settings. Look for something under the application's menu system like "File...Print Setup", or "File...Printer Settings" and change the print mode there to color.

3) The application's page setup is set to black or greyscale only. Look in the application's menu system for something like "File...Page Setup" or "Format...Page" and make sure it's not set to black only.

You will probably get better answers to your question by providing more info like what OS, or version of Windows you are using and what program you are trying to print from.
