This means the black ink is running low and the printer is tryin to resolve this issue with bringing colour to take half of the black ink cartidges process, this just saves on ink, its usually called ecconomical mode, you can turn off this feature. or alternatively this may be cause by low ink in general, try replacing the ink cartridge.

hope this helps.

    no problem, economic mode should be in the printer settings in the original printer program drivers. for instance, my printer settings were defaultly placed beside my clock on the windows start bar, this feature keeps my printer drivers up to date aswell, theoritically it should be there if you have the driver set installed, most printers will not work without a driver set installed on the computer so im certain your must have it.

    its usually called ecomonical mode but it maybe called something like "ink sparing mode" or something like that depending on your printer.



    hope this helps

    that could also be the answer, the printer heads need cleaning from time to time as the printing tracks can blend together and cause incorrect printing.

    using your printer options you can run a printer head align program to re-align the heads. its easy to do, it basically just prints out a page of lines so that the heads reposition themselves correctly again (just remeber the printer needs paper to do this).



    hope this helps

What is Apostille definition and How can you apostille a document?


This is a document certification scheme which applies in countries which are signatories to the Hague Convention on Private International Law, eg not in Brazil.

It notarizes or certifies a government issued document as a genuine one for use in another signatory country eg a US birth certificate for use in say, Spain.

Such a certificate is called an apostille. It is issued by any approved office in the issuing country. In the US this is generally any approved agent of the US Dept of State:

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.
