When you start to print go to properties. One of those options are either print using only black in or print in grayscale.

Ink is smudged on envelope. How do I stop that from happening?


i bet you're printing in Black,
what happens is when black is selected, the 3 colored drums lift up 2 mm annd only the K drum is engaged, amd there is no static in the transfer belt under the CMY drums.
envelopes have air in them and can bounce along the bely after the black has printed, and seeing the toner is powder and not yet fused on, the toner touches the cyan drum as the envelope hits the fuser entry point as well as dragging on the Left transfer belt Blue lift handle(take out the belt and spring the handle off).
If you open the lid in this print mode, and lift out the cyan drum, turn it over and pull back the cover for the OPC drum, you will see the black toner on the green drum.
FIX 1. In the art work place a tiny dot of yellow. this will run the print mode in color and enagage all the drums. gaurantee your print will be fine, and know one ever sees that yellow dot.Problem is, this then runs down your CMY drums for black only printing.

FIX2.
If you have a later machine, downlaod iQueue from Xante.com (free) fantastic software. and get the machine updated with the latest X1.11 firmware from your dealer.
This allows with iQueue, to set the machine to print Black only, and you run the machine without the CMY drums installed....it works, it's great...

Tip

Toner


HP has this wonderful idea of throwing out previous toner cartridge design upon every printer release. It is not worth it to keep different models of printers especially color printers. One full set of toner is about a thousand dollars for color laser printers. Every time I had to upgrade one, I bought multiple of that unit and got rid of the old one as soon as I go the use out of it. It you run out of toner and aren't going to buy anymore, print only black. Get you your moneys worth. Then get rid of it.

With WorkForce 500, I am using only black for coping. But other color inks become low and the coping is stopped. Are there any way to do only the black coping?

Konika Minolta 2430 DL won't let me print


Look through the menus on the printer for a setting for "Low Toner" -- the choices of what to do are usually either "continue" or "stop" or something similar (my 2430DL has this option setting) -- set this option to "Continue".
My 15 year old HPs also have a similar setting. However, this will keep it printing when the black runs out, so you will need to check your print production run visually as you go along to make sure the quality is what you need

How can I ignore the low toner error message and print black on a Dell 5100cn?


i believe that if you remove the color toner cartridges, it will stop asking and only print black. you may also be able to specify in the print menu settings to disable the color printing

Hello, I have a Minolta Magicolor 2490 MF, printer/copier. The display shows "low toner". My question is this: Is it possible for the machine to identify the seperate toner levels, so I can replace only...


hi,
if it has a 4 toners which color are separated (the cyan, magenta, yellow and black) then you can replace a low toner one at a time. for example if the black color prompt you that it needs a replacement then you can put off the black toner without changing the other color not until such time it prompt you that it needs replacement. For replacing it I believe it has an instructional manual or if it's still under warranty you can ask assistance from your dealer to help you how.

Still using color toner when printing in black


Check the black toner cartridge. Most printers that use multiple cartridges will use the black cartridge as long as it has toner in it but will then start using the color toner to do the black/grayscale when the black cartridge is empty.

Blue Toner finishes quicker


I can't imagine where toner could possible go from one of these sort of cartridges except on to your paper, I had a customer once with the same request and I found on their letter head that they printed with it had a single band of yellow across it hence excess yellow use,,,,,, Do your print runs of anything contain dark bands/underlines? I guess check to see if white background in any prints has a blueish tinge to it, or possiblly somehow black is running out and it is printing the blacks by mixing the colours (Check black block and text to see if it is really black not heaps dark blue to ensure black toner is operating)

next I'd be questioning if cartridges where brother ones?

Black toner problem.Probably You have low toner sensor defect.
But try first to vacuum and clean black toner dispenser.You must vacuum whole path wich is used to transport black toner to developer unit.Then if printing B/W print only, you must print 10 full color sheets every 100 copies.
