  1. Go to START>PRINTERS AND FAXES
  2. Right-click on your printer and choose "Printing Preferences".
  3. Choose the Color tab and set it to "Print in grayscale"
  4. You can also set it to use the b&w cartridge only for true black & white prints.

Check whether you have selected 'Black & White' option for Color property in 'Printing Preferences' (in General tab) and 'Printing Defaults...' (in Advanced tab).

Set it to Color option.

Hi,how do I change setting from color to print black and white on HP PSC 1410 ALL IN ONE PRINTER?


Hi there nothing to do in printer. When you print some thing go in print preference and select the B/W print option. Then it will come as B/W print. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

My Hp 1401 or 1400 all in one printer's software will not work on my new vista computer. I somehow changed the color to print a black and white photo, can't remember how I done it. Now everything prints...


  1. If you need to change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on the software application, this button might be called Properties, Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
  2. Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available in the Paper/Quality, Finishing, Effects, Basics, and Color tabs. (Color Tab should allow you to change from only Black printing)
  3. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.

Instead of printing to paper, it wants to print (save) to a file


Make sure that you have it set as your default printer. You can do so through the printer section in your Control Panel.

Can't print in color


Hi there!

Problem with your print settings.

Go to Control Panel > Printers and FAxes > Right Click on your printer and click Printing Preferences

Depending on your model, the preference page would show a drop down control or simply an option that says something like :

Print in : Black & White /Grayscale
or most models would say:

COLOR: [ ]BLACK [ x] COLOR

Now, set it to colored.

Hope this gives you an idea!

HP Deskjet, Set to Black & White; but still prints with color!


Bronze, hopefully this is a logical issue: Assuming you're on WinXP > Go to Start>Control Panels>Printers (and faxes).
Find the printer in question in the list (maybe there's only one or 2 listed) and 'Right-click' on the icon > go down to "Printing Preferences" (about second/third down the list).
In here you will be able to set the printers default settings. I'm not 100% familiar with HPs printing dialog, but there maybe a setting there for either 'Black & White' and 'Grayscale' (albeit it should be greyscale, anyway...) if you choose black and white your printing will not have any mid-tone, so if there's a choise, choose 'Grayscale'.
You can set other features here which will become the new default each time you go to print something - personally I set to 'Draft' or 'Fast Draft' mode by default, that way when I just print out rubbish, I am saving "lots" of ink and if I want something in good quality, I change it at time of printing.
Now, there are some programs and files that "remember" you last print settings, so if you've used a colour print setting previously, that file may still pring in colour, even though the new defaults are mono (black & white). So, print using the new defaults and save the file when finished. It's unlikely the case with OpenOffice, but, I don't know. We'll tackle that as we get to it.
So, if that has not cured the problem, please let me know.

I can't print in color


There are several possibilities here:

1) The default printer settings in your OS (operating system) were set to black only. If you are in windows, go to the windows control panel and choose the printers icon. Find your printer and modify the settings to allow color.

2) The application is overriding the default print settings. Look for something under the application's menu system like "File...Print Setup", or "File...Printer Settings" and change the print mode there to color.

3) The application's page setup is set to black or greyscale only. Look in the application's menu system for something like "File...Page Setup" or "Format...Page" and make sure it's not set to black only.

You will probably get better answers to your question by providing more info like what OS, or version of Windows you are using and what program you are trying to print from.
