Re: Balck printing

Go into the properties for the printer (right click on the printer icon in the printers/faxes folder or the control panel and select properties). From there you can tell it to print in color, black and white, or gray scale. (You may have to go into the printing preferences option, I can't remember exactly where but somewhere in the properties is that option).

My printer will not print in black. It will use the other colors, but not black. When I try to print a black and white document, it prints in blue.

if u want to print selected document in black than open the document select print go to printer properties select grayscale printing

always print in black
go to printer properties than go to maintenance than go to ink cartridge setting select ink cartridge black only for balck and white printing only.

Sir, can we use color cartridge in canon lbp2900b

NO! whatever you do, do not put colour in with the black cartridge. This will seriously damage your printer. Your printer cannot use colour ink cartridges. I would suggest purchasing a new printer with that capability. Do not risk the damage of trying a colour cartridge in your current printer. Laser printers are very tempermental. Cheers.

Ran out of color ink on cnnon mx310 ... want to

If when you attempt to print only with the black cartridge installed but it won't print, then this specific printer requires that color ink also be installed. Typical with most inkjets.

I am having HP Deskjet 3920 Printer. When i try to print any documents, it will show an error message that " The Triclor cartridge is incorrectly installed" , although still it will print color prints...

Hi Anish, Have u checked the printer cartridges installed properly(i.e., Color in color door and black in black door). and also check the cabling between the system and your printer. and put the papers properly. if the problem again persists uninstall the printer driver and install the latest drives which can be downloaded from the net.

Color lines/dashes at top and middle of page when printing.


Your problem lies with the fact that you manually refilled your cartridges. This is not recommended by any technician I know and your solution is in the replacement of all your cartridges with genuine brother consumables. It is going to be expencive, but it is the only real solution.

Wont print

Hi, yes I have had problems with these HP printers B4 and it was in fact the INK... strange as it may seem, Ya gota have them "Full" as it were. I have "Fooled" it sometimes by removing the cartridge(s) and powering on & of re-inserting them. But eventually always ended up paying thru the nose for the cartridges. I saved a bit by using refilled ones, but I now use printers that have cheap single color ones, eg: Canon i550
