Hi hofhofhof, it sounds as though you may have the wrong settings in the print driver window. Check to see if it is set for B&W (or black only) and also check to make sure the paper size is set correctly. You may have to do this each time you do a new print job.

The printer won't print. It says replace the color ink cartridge. All I want to do is print black and white.


You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
Note: As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink

It may be set for grayscale (black and white) in the print properties. Go into the print properties in Word and look for a color or black and white setting, either under Color Management or Advanced. Set it for color, and then print your color document.

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software.
The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

go into your driver and change your color preferences to black and white. that way when you want to print color you actually have to tell it to do so. which will save your color ink, and will print much faster. full color printing of a black and white document uses all ink colors except black to make what is called process black.

My samsung monochrome laser mfp printer has colour ink in it and it will not print anything in colour. My comp is windows 7. It will only print black and white and I want to print a coloured document....


Hi,
The printer you have got is a monochrome printer i.e. it can only print in black. If you require colored outputs you would require to go in for colored printer.

Thank you,
Have a good day.

In the printing preferences you need to select Black and white.

1. open the document you want to print
2. click file
3. click print
4. select printer from list, then click on preferences
5. look around the pages.

In Color tab I found a print in Grayscale - this setting will print the document in black and white colors, the pages may be diffrent on diffrent printers. look for black and white setting or Grayscale.

picture: printing preferences, color page on a hp printer, select grayscale with black cartridge only.
