Specifically on the Magicolor 5430DL you can print when a cartridge is empty, but this is disabled by default. To enable printing even with a toner cartridge empty.Press the Menu Button, then press the right button until the ENGINE menu appears and press the select button.Next press the right button until TONER appears and press SelectOnce in the Toner Menu the first option should be "EMPTY" if not press the right button until you see "EMPTY" and press Select.There are two options, the default is "STOP" pressing the right button once should change from STOP to CONTINUE.While the display reads "CONTINUE" press Select.You should see the message "CONTINUE is selected"You can now print even when one or more cartridges are empty. However, the lack of the cartridge's color will be noticed in any print jobs calling for that color... (Obviously)

I installed the latest driver, 61.82.61.41 and now whenever a user tries to print in grayscale, it prints black pages with white text


Kindly check the printer settings and preferences. Maybe it was set to grayscale, afterwards, try to do a print alignment and last resort is check toner if it's clean. Try to wipe with paper towel and do the printer test. Hope it may fix your problem :)

Using the Pixma mp800, running from windows 7, when I try to print in black and white photographs, the printer adds greens. How do I correct this?


Hello,
your printer makes black from cyan, magenta and yellow when you tell it to prin black and white photographs. In the Printer Preferences you will find an option that is called: Print in High Resolution Grayscale using only the black cartridge.
If you check this function your printer will print only black and white with grayscale and will not use the color cartridge.

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Aficio CL1000N Printer: On my Ricoh aficio CL1000N it says add toner Cyan....


If I remember right, the CL1000 won't print if any of the 4 colors are out. You have to replace the cyan toner in order to print, even in black and white.

If you haven't tried already, you can try taking the cyan toner out and shaking it up (just a little bit) to try to get the printer to find the little bit of toner left in the bottle.

My company has an HP laserjet 5500 printer. We ran out of yellow toner and did not order a spare. The machine keeps flashing 'out of/replace yellow toner'. We do not have the manual readily...


I do not believe you can get around the yellow toner, in the startup self diagnostic it checks all of the toners, and will not proceed if it has an error. Go to a big box store and either get your toner or a low end grayscale laser printer, sorry I could not be more helpful.

Color toner used up even though I selected grayscale


Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.

Printing in Grayscale or black


Too few manufacturers will allow their units to print in grayscale when a color toner is low or empty. The only way to get your unit working is by installing the required toner. By the way, start a budget to buy the transfer belt, drum unit, waste toner bottle and fuser unit. These are also consumables with a lifecycle.
