Question about OKI C5100n Laser Printer

1 Answer

OKI C5100 alignment issues, I think

When printing black over another color, sometimes it is out of alignment, leaving white space. I've tried the black overprint and that then leaves a grey shadow. It is not consistent from sheet to sheet. I tried not putting any black over a color and even then sometimes the black text has a shadow. It looks like an alignment problem, but I have found nothing in manual or searching online that gives any help on how to fix this.

Im trying to print a black and white document but it wont let me print because my color cartridge is missing


The Lexmark X2600 requires both cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing, even if your printing in "black and white". To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink. , Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality issues.

When we attempt to print it leaves black streak marks. At first it printed all black and when we went to setup under maintainence we chose alignment and clean cartridges. This worked however we still see...


If an inkjet printer gives white streaks where it should be black, it means the ink is very low, or there is dirt under the nozzles preventing it from printing properly, or, in the case of non original cartridges, ink might be leaking which prevents the bubbles of ink to squirt onto the page.

If the streaks are black where it should be white, is sounds like some dust or fluff below the cartridge leaves ink smears on the page.

Want to print only black and white


Hi,

Printing with only black and white as the primary color would be easy.

First, we would need to know what software are you using for printing.
It can be a black and white picture and/or just a simple word document.
Usually, when you print, there would the "Printer Options" first.
Once there, you would have options to change it to your liking.

If you have some problems. Don't hesitate to leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

Have a good one...

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

My MP830 leaves white horizontal bands when printing black & white documents. Color printing seems fine. Pattern 'F' is missing on the print alignment page.


You need to continually clean and deep clean and realign the black until the results are acceptable. Try manual alignment if the auto does not work. Also clean around the exit hole of the black ink cartidge with a cotton bud and isoproyl alcohol.

Won't print black and white, looks blue


Hi

HP uses a system for black that prints a base ie: Cyan / *blue then overprints it with black...

Sounds like you are either out of black or you have an ink clog?

If so... you need to use a print head cleaner like Magic Inkjet Flush you can get a kit on Ebay.

Good Luck!
