Lexmark 3600-4600 stops at 34% when trying to print a test page. Color ink is low, but I only want black in any event.


If your color ink is already empty or not substantial for printing, then you must replace it with a new cartridge. The Lexmark printer will continue to print when there's substantial ink in the cartridges.
If you prefer to print in black and white as your default print setting, please follow the steps below: (make sure your black and color cartridges ink levels are good)

For Windows OS:

1. Go to Control Panel.

2. Open Printers and Faxes.

3. Right-click on Lexmark 3600-4600 Series print object and click on Properties.

4. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window, go to Advanced tab. Click on Printing Defaults.

5. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Printing Preferences window, under Ink Use, select Print using black ink only. Click OK.

6. Click OK button in the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window to save the changes.


Your printer will print in black and white draft mode the next time you send a print job to the printer.


For Mac OS:


1. With the file (you wish to print) open, go to Print. A window will pop up.

2. Select the Lexmark printer.

3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media.

4. Under Paper tab, select Print in Black and White.

5. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).



Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.

I have just installed a new colour and a new black ink cartridge but it will only print in black and white and not colour. Why??


check your settings under the Printer settings... you might have changed it to BLACK & WHITE only.

Make sure that you have the global settings set so that by default the printer uses BEST Quality depending on model.

No setting for black and white printing only


The setting isn't on your printer, its in windows.

The next time you print, instead of just clicking "Ok" to send the document to the printer, click "properties." this will look different depending on your OS and whether or not you have printer software installed so I can't give you step by steps but there should be an option here to either set the printing defaults to greyscale or just a straight up black/white dropdown/checkbox. save that as default and you are done.

Why does the Samsung clp-510 color laser printer keeps defaulting to black and white print out when printing color images?


Well one thing you should do is when your printing something out before you print make sue that you have selected color not black and white because most printers have a default setting to use black and white. Also make sure that you have color ink available to print.

HP Deskjet, Set to Black & White; but still prints with color!


Bronze, hopefully this is a logical issue: Assuming you're on WinXP > Go to Start>Control Panels>Printers (and faxes).
Find the printer in question in the list (maybe there's only one or 2 listed) and 'Right-click' on the icon > go down to "Printing Preferences" (about second/third down the list).
In here you will be able to set the printers default settings. I'm not 100% familiar with HPs printing dialog, but there maybe a setting there for either 'Black & White' and 'Grayscale' (albeit it should be greyscale, anyway...) if you choose black and white your printing will not have any mid-tone, so if there's a choise, choose 'Grayscale'.
You can set other features here which will become the new default each time you go to print something - personally I set to 'Draft' or 'Fast Draft' mode by default, that way when I just print out rubbish, I am saving "lots" of ink and if I want something in good quality, I change it at time of printing.
Now, there are some programs and files that "remember" you last print settings, so if you've used a colour print setting previously, that file may still pring in colour, even though the new defaults are mono (black & white). So, print using the new defaults and save the file when finished. It's unlikely the case with OpenOffice, but, I don't know. We'll tackle that as we get to it.
So, if that has not cured the problem, please let me know.

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!
