HP printer using color for printing black text

Hi
Does anybody know how to enable pure black printing for the HP 930C printer? My Win2K driver offered this option, but XP doesn't.
Any ideas?
Regards

    Hi Technosavy


    I had tried that one alrady before posting. Unless I'm overlooking an option, it's not there.

  • Szyfrow Oct 18, 2008

    yes, I can choose between colour and B/W (see image - in Dutch, but you can see the B/w and colour icons)






    but the Win2K driver also had a third option which was Black only. I'll make a print screen of that tomorrow - it's on another computer.

I have solved this issue on other printers by going to the Control Panel, clicking on Printers and Faxes and right click on the printer icon and select Printing Preferences. Most will have the option in the basic or advanced view to select black ink only, this may also be an option in the Paper/Quality tab.

    I installed this printer driver on my PC and was able to select B&W printing by clicking on the Paper/Quality tab when I brought up the printing preferences.

How can I make my HP 930c print with no color cartridge?


you cannot make it print with no cart, but if you have an old one, drill holes in the top and fill with water, 930c uses weight to establish ink level, after much mucking around I have done this today, printing right now :)

Hi My HP deskjet 930c is printing only in black and will not print colour. I have checked that the colour box is ticked in set up and that it is not set to grayscale. I have also checked to see...


Frankly, it sounds that you've taken the necessary steps to ensure color printing.  Just for giggles, try reinstalling the software drivers.  Here is the link to the driver for your machine.  You'll need to select the operating system (Windows 2000, XP... etc) to get the driver you need.

Is there any way to disable the color cartridge in my HP 930c? I want to print only in black.


Under your printer preferences there is a way to print gray scale. SO even if your image is in color, it will print black and white. Every printer interface is different, but when you go to print, there's usually a properties or setting button that will bring you to another page from the initial print menu. here is where you would choose gray scale.

If you try for black with only a color cartridge, it'll come out a dark green or blue color. Or on some cases, it will tell you it's out of black and you can't print. Most HP printers need at both cartridges in the printer for it to print.

Cannot print in black because color cartidge is out of ink


There is a 'low toner' override in the menu system, but if this has NOT been set already, a 'flag' will be set on the chip on the cartridges that are low/empty.

The printer needs to 'see' cartridges that are usable, i.e. NOT empty, in order to function.

It is possible to replace just the chips on the colour cartridges, but then any colour printing quality could be compromised of course, as the colours will be low/empty. You would then be able to use the printer as if it were a mono laser, just changing the black cartridge when needed

Text will print in black only. How can I get some of the text that shows in color on my publication to print out in color?


Look in the application you are using and the printer setup, printer properties and current printer profile and you will most likely find that you have a setting for print text as pure black only. I quite often do this to save colour ink!

HP 930C will not print in color


Have you made sure that the plastic strip covering the cartridge is removed? Also, are both of the cartridges installed? Mine won't print if both aren't installed. Next, you might want to check that (in printer settings) your printer isn't configured to print pure black/greyscale. Otherwise, check the HP Site, they have walkthrough guides on how to print tests directly from your printer. Hope this helps. BurntLime

My hp psc 1610 all in one printer will not print any thing in bla


Go to your print driver, should be in the "printers and faxes" folder in XP. Right click on the driver and select properties from the drop down menu. Go to the Advanced Tab and select "printing defaults". Look for an option entitled "print all text in black", under the Advanced tab, in document options. See if that is disabled. Enable it if so and test.

Colored text printing


The printer assumes that the color cartridge is good, and is trying to print with the dead color cartridge.
See if there is a setting for your printer under the control panel, printer, and go to printer properties.
See if you can select to print BLACK only.
I know they have this option for some Canon Printers, but not sure with the HP Printer Drivers.
Worst case senerio, Highlight all of the text, and change the color to BLACK before printing. You can always just pick up a cheap refilled cartridge at Staples since it wont be used a lot, the quality isnt going to make much difference.

Good luck.
Hope this helps.
