SOURCE: prints grey not black

if the printing preference is on "draft", it will print everything on light color or grey. check the printing preference, choose text or image instead of draft.

SOURCE: Epson DX8400: how can i get it to print black only

Sorry Desperate. All inkjet printers, from all companies,  are programed to only operate with ink in all containers to avoid other problems. Their is no workaround. Please rate me not harshly just  because you don't like the answer. Rate based upon the truth of an answer.

SOURCE: epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black

Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Try to print without high speed. If it's ok, you need to head alignment both black and colour.

My Epson 1400 is printing blacks green. After gray 40 % all my gray and black is coming out green. what can I do to solve that, and please don't tell me to chane my printer I just boughted it 4 months ago.


The printer is using your color cartridge to print black and greys.
The black cartridge must be empty and will need to be replaced.
The color cartridge has depleted one of the primary colors required
to print black.
Both cartridges will need to be replaced

Hi Colin.

I just have had the same problem with my Aculaser C4200.
I may have found a way to solve you problem.
Just print 10 blank (without anything), and after that i took all toner's, the fuser etc. and put it back again. Printed 10 more blank pages, and printed over 200 pages with lot of tekst and colour (think that 50 pages could do it).
After 2 days everything is still ok for me.

Epson dx9400f will not print black only. Colour is fine!


if you want black only when you hit print, go to properties (this is next to the printer name), select the color tab and check print in grey scale

Ink won't show up properly


Two possibilities, you have run out of ink in one or more cartidges, or you may have selected "draft" mode in you rprinter properties or prefrences. Draft mode saves ink by reducing the amount of ink put on the page.

Epson RX680-How to print only in B+W


You can set it to "grayscale" and supposedly print only in black/grey.
However, Epson printers use a small amount of every color even when printing black only or greyscale (black). Your printer will still not work with one color tank empty.

Here is how to set it:
Open the properties page for the RX680 and on the "Main" tab, click on [Advanced]. A Note may appear egarding incorrect settings.
Click [Continue]. Find the [ ] Grayscale box and check it, the [OK]
[OK], etc.

Here is Epson's note on using grayscale / colors:

Won't print black at all


Sounds like the JEt for the Black might have clogged or the print head has malfunctioned.

Prints grey not black


I solved this problem but probably not what the printer manufacturer would recommend! The reason you are just getting grey is that the black ink cartridge is either empty or dried out from non use and only the color cartridge is working. I had the same problem after being away for 5 months. I put the printer cartridge in a bowl of warm water to disolve the dried out ink on the print pad. I dried off the cartridge with a soft cloth and then it worked perfectly.
