normally most printers when you
select properties and advance you can select the quality of printing there you can select grayscale instead of color that will do it
right click properties for pinter select advance change the settings. print a test page will come only black if not repeat steps.
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.
Any default (or normally used)settings, can be made by changing the Printing Preferences for that specific printer.
1) Find the printer...ex: [Start]--> [Settings]--> [Printers and Faxes]...then [right-click] on the printer name/icon.
2) The pop-up menu that appears should list an option to select called, "Printing Preferences".
3) Under the [Paper/Quality] TAB, you can select "Black and White" (instead of the normally default, "Color").
4) Make sure to click OK, and that printer should (by default/ normal) print in B/W now.
--- you can change this to "Color" in Print Setup...but it is temporary for that printing job, and should revert to it's default state, afterwards.---
-Printing Preferences- is where any changes you make will become the Normally used setup.
.Hope this helps
Sounds like the print head on the color side is ether plugged on its plunger or the print head failed totally the real way to do any testing is get yourself a printer cleaning kit and follow the direction on that if that does not shore it up replace the plunger and or printhead around $45-50 bucks respectivly.
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.
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.
Print a test page to ensure that your printer now prints black using the color cartridge.
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.
If you can copy in color without problem, then you have to check the print settings. On your print screen click on [Properties], then [Graphics]. Verify that color, and not grayscale is checked. Make sure to click on [Apply] before closing the window. Write me if that does not solve the issue.
One of the possible reason why you can't print black in white because Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. More than that Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head.
