Printing black/white when color toners are low

Hello,

I am trying to print in black/white, but am unable to do so because the printer insists that the cyan and yellow toners need to be replaced. I need to print in b/w for now and plan to replace the color toners soon, but is there a way to bypass that error for now? Please help.

Try taking the color toner containers out of the printer and shaking them a bit. Put them back on and try again. This could confuse the sensors into believing that you still have some toner left.

Good luck

My Ricoh SP 232sf wont print at all because the K toner is out of toner but it has plenty of color. Can I force it to print somehow?


Unfortunately, no, the printer won't print even in color if the black toner is empty. The black drum rotates whether the copier is printing in black & white or color, so if black is empty you can't print at all.

What will be cost per page of printing in hp lasure jet 2600


This is going to depend greatly on what type of printing you are doing as well as if you use OEM HP toner cartridges or go with a cheaper aftermarket cartridge. At the low end, this machine will cost you 2.5 cents per page for Black & White and 15 cents per page for Color. On the high end it will be closer to 5 cents for Black and 20+ cents for Color. The percentage of toner coverage will also obviously effect you per page printing cost as a page with more coverage is using more toner than one with less coverage. Keep in mind that the stated yield that each cartridge will produce is based on an industry standard of about 5% covergae which is not much when compared to the typical printing of most users.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Printing only black in TallyGenicom 8108N


You can change the colour setting in the printer driver to Black Only, this means you will only print Black and White using only the black toner.
To make this change on Windows XP;

Open the Printers and Faxes Folder.
Right Click on the printer driver for the 8008.
Select Printing Preferences.
Click on the Color/Print Quality Tab.
In the Color Mode section select the B&W radio button.
Click on the APPLY button

This should change the pritner driver to print only black and white.

WHEN PRINTING THE COLOR IS VERY WEAK


You have to disassemble the printer and clean the prisms inside the black box within the printer. The prism for the red and yellow colors are near the bottom and face up, so they easily collect dust buildup, thereby causing weak or striped printing of these colors.

Printer won't print


Many printers will not print if one color is out, some will. One thing to check is to make sure that when you print, the option for "balck and white" is selected in the printing preferences.

Many people don't realize that even though the document may be black and white the printer still processes it as a color document which wastes costly supplies.
