I recently acquired piece of electronics I am attempting to set it up. My first task was to see if the copier worked. It reproduces coloured copies only and will not copy using the black ink. I printed the nozzle check pattern and everything is okay. I also performed the head cleaning and the deep print cleaning and attempted to copy again with no success. I have also replaced the black ink catridge. No luck. Any suggestions? Thanks Kathy

You are smart to see this and respond. Even "black'pen ink has red pigment in it and although the human eye can't see it the copier can and counts that as a color copy. Hit the reset button so we know we are at the base configuration of the device.Now select black as the mode for the device as if you were about to make a copy.Now locate the "Aditional function" button to the right of the display.You will see a menu and I believe on your device the top right tab will say copy settings.Select it and scroll till tou see the "standard settings" key.Select it.The 2 options should be store and initialize.Select store and hit ok in he lower right corner.Now back out to the main screen which will require a couple of exits/resets.Now that you are back to the main copy screen select auto color.Press reset (yellow button).Your copier should now have gone back to black.Hope I have helped you,and have agood day.Please let "FIXYA" know if I helped.

It's never going to be perfect (unless the background is quite light in colour), because the copier basically "sees" the coloured background as "gray", and the darker the background the more "gray" it looks. Try setting the original type to "photo" mode, and then adjusting the exposure a little lighter/darker....that's all you can basically do.
If the green light on the adf is blinking that means that there is a paper jam in the adf. I sure you know that the copier you are using is at least 10 - 15 years old. Has the adf worked recently? Are one of the adf hings broken? If so, line the adf straight on the top of the copy board glass. There is a magnet that needs to be closed to make the adf work. Try to see if there is any small piece of paper in the papeer path of the adf and use a can of air to blow out the sensors and get back to us.
I do not know if you are know, that this is copier wich is predicted for small office copy, for color is only good for few charts or small pictures. In most cases the problem is with grey colour, red is also strange.
You can try next: 1 Clean the beaneath copy glass 2 Clean scaner 3 Under user mode do colour graduation adj 4 if you want you can under service mode clear R-CON and reenter factory settings, but for this call service.
It also can be that copier needs to be replaced developer assys or drum or itb...
