Check the capabilities of the printer in the manual. But in general- to get black general purpose printers print all colours. This is the normal way to get a black black in the CYMK process. Some printers offer black only as a setting or a special black/monochrome ink. Some specialist ink suppliers[Lycos] will offer a 'black set' that is where the colour carts are replaced with a shades of grey. Where does your printer come in this scheme of things also take a look here

Try printing the Nozzle Check pattern. Check if colors are printed correctly. If not, try Printhead Cleaning A first then check again the Nozzle Pattern. If there's a small changes to the pattern, try Printhead Cleaning B. If problem persist, try changing the Printhead.

2. Press to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE.
3. Press to select CONFIGURE DEVICE.
4. Press to highlight SYSTEM SETUP.
5. Press to select SYSTEM SETUP.

7. Press to select COLOR/BLACK MIX.
8. Press or to select the desired option. (Select MOSTLY BLACK PAGES)
9. Press to select the option.

Select MOSTLY BLACK PAGES if you print mostly monochrome print jobs, or a combination of color and monochrome print jobs.

The Grayscale print option optimizes the look of color slides for printing on a black and white printer by adding shading. The Pure Black and White option prints your slides in monochrome.

  1. Open the presentation you want to print.
  2. Click on the word File in the Menu Bar.
  3. Select the option Print.
  4. The Print dialog will appear.

Want to print black only mp830

When you do a print request and get the printer window. click on the properties button on the top right side of the window. This will open another window. Look for the color tab and select Print in gray scale. This will cause the printer to print in black only. This will change to black printer only for this print job. If you want to change to printing in grayscale or black only all the time, open your printers and faxes window, right click on the printer you want to change, on the general tab of the window that opens, click on printer preferences, look for the color tab and select print in grayscale.

I hope you have found this helpful.

Greyscale printing

You may well be on the right track Certainly nothing to do with the printer as such It will only squirt the inks it is told to. So check the printer software[drivers] for starters- Is it possible you have the latest -check makers web site. This may also apply to your graphics card/image editor. Do ensure all the latest[current drivers and patches] are loaded. For example I Paint Shop Pro- Coral will sent updates from time to time some of which seem to be almost as big as the original program. If I have occasion to reinstall or repair the prog- I must always remember to reload the updates.
