Hp C5180 printer will not print in black and white

Printer says it cannot print because colors are low. Now even when i order it to print in grayscale(B&W) it says it cannot because color cartridges are low...I just want a black and white print job done but none of the settings will co-operate.
thank you

SOURCE: computer doesn't print color

Hi, the problem seems with the logic board inside the printer, are you in a position to open the printer and try some stunts, that is only if you have done it earlier.. let me know??

SOURCE: Can I set default printing to black and white for color laser printer?

Yes. Any printer's default options can be set as desired. Open the printer's properties (Start/Control Panel/Printers/right click the printer and left click Properties), and change the setting as you wish, then click OK. Those settings should be used each time you use the print command, unless you change the settings for that particular print job.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!

Error message that color cartridge has low ink, so printer won't print. How do I override this? This message occurs when only one color is low and requires replacing the entire cartridge.


No way 2 override the message. Printer works on a combination of both black and color ink to print those perfect pictures and documents. If it is showing color ink needs replacement,you ve 2 change it in order to print even in black and white.

C5180 won't print in black and white only


Hi,
I do not have this model printer or computer, but I thought I would offer that most printer set-up dialog boxes from the program you are printing from, will let you select mono. I'm somewhat familiar with this because I use CAD software and though I draw multi color lines, I want only to print black-line.
I hope this helps... Good luck!

You can go into the print properties and set it to print black only, however if any of the color cartridges are empty the printer may not print until you replace whichever cartridge is empty.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos


I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks
Riz
