From what i know. If you only have Black Ink, you can simply go to Start> Printers and Faxes> Right click on your printer and select properties and click Printing Preferences on the General Tab> Simply Click Paper/Quality and click Advanced. Look for ICM Color Management and then on ICM Method, click ICM Handled By Host System and change it to ICM Disabled.

Also, just below you will see Advanced Printing Features. Disable It.

Finally Click OK and get out of there.

Next, try printing a test page and see what you get.

Here is an image of the last part to be sure you change the right things...

My printer runs out of coloured ink . I don't use it to print pictures. Just black and white work orders. Do I have to have colours in? Is there some change I can make? Thanking you in advance George


Unless you can re-write the printer's internal programming which is looking for all colors to be present, the best option is to invest in a black-only laser printer which prints much faster and cheaper. You can give the old printer to someone that wants to print photos or other color work. HP makes beautiful printers, but their machine software leaves something to be desired. Good luck!

Printer HP Deskjet D1460 prints pink"..Instead of Black


The printed colours are an "additive" mix of the "primary" colours in your printer.

So, when the colour ink-jet cartridge is "out-of-ink" on one (or more) of its colours, the "mix" will be off, and the "wrong" colour will be the result.

Change the colour cartridge.

Before changing it, run a "deep-cleaning" cycle, using the HP Support software that was installed when you installed from the CD-ROM that came with the printer, to "clean" any/all "clogged" ink-jets -- i.e., a clog could be preventing one colour of ink from being sprayed onto the paper.

We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have


nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.
