Want to print with black ink cartridge only

I cannot find a place in the print properties to print with black ink only. I don't want to print in black from the color cartridge, I want to use the black cartridge only. My other problem is that it was showing the black cartridge as being full and the color as being low. But the black would not print and only the color would print. I changed to a new black cartridge and it now prints black fine, but give me a warning that my black cartridge is now below the minimum necessary. Should I ignore the warning or will it shut down and not print.

In the print que you can select menu go to paper setting select grey scale. Your correct it does conserve ink. Process black is what the call a print that has no color and is printed in color mode. Grey scale is what your looking for.

It is a little known fact that ink cartridges do have an expiry date, and it is sometimes possible that even if a printer reads full, that it has dried out and will not print. When you recieve a warning that your ink is too low you will simply be unable to print black ink after a certain point. Generaly if you want to print in only black you will have to do that when you print a document. For instance in IE when you go to file and then print you can select prefrences and select print in greyscale or black. hope this helps!

HP7780 not printing any color


Go into printer properties and check to make sure you don't have "black ink only" selected. If that's not the case, use your printer tools to see the estimated ink level for your color cartridge. If not low, try removing the cartridge and and dabbing a wet paper towel over the bottom of the cartridge to see if any ink comes out. Sometimes this will get the ink moving again. Otherwise, replace the color cartridge.

Lexmark 3600-4600 stops at 34% when trying to print a test page. Color ink is low, but I only want black in any event.


If your color ink is already empty or not substantial for printing, then you must replace it with a new cartridge. The Lexmark printer will continue to print when there's substantial ink in the cartridges.
If you prefer to print in black and white as your default print setting, please follow the steps below: (make sure your black and color cartridges ink levels are good)

For Windows OS:

1. Go to Control Panel.

2. Open Printers and Faxes.

3. Right-click on Lexmark 3600-4600 Series print object and click on Properties.

4. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window, go to Advanced tab. Click on Printing Defaults.

5. In the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Printing Preferences window, under Ink Use, select Print using black ink only. Click OK.

6. Click OK button in the Lexmark 3600-4600 Series Properties window to save the changes.


Your printer will print in black and white draft mode the next time you send a print job to the printer.


For Mac OS:


1. With the file (you wish to print) open, go to Print. A window will pop up.

2. Select the Lexmark printer.

3. Expand the arrow pointing down beside printer name if you're not able to see other options for printing. Look for Quality and Media.

4. Under Paper tab, select Print in Black and White.

5. Save this as your default print setting. Click Presets option and choose Save as. You can personalize the name for this default print setting (e.g. Black and White Draft or My Setting).



Select this Preset name every time you print your files/documents.

My black ink will not print. Do I have to have


The larger of the two black cartridges is used for text only printing.

The saller cartridge is used for black in graphic images or pictures.

This saves you color ink . It allows you to put the black ink on the image without making the color inks blend the black ink.

To replace the ink cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
2. Open the ink cartridge door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place.
3. Squeeze the tab below an ink cartridge to release the latch inside the HP All-in-One, and then lift the latch.
If you are replacing the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.
If you are replacing one of the five color ink cartridges, such as yellow, light cyan (blue), cyan, light magenta (pink), or magenta, lift the appropriate latch in the center area.
4. Pull the ink cartridge toward you out of its slot to remove it.
5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging, and then, holding it by the handle, slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot.
Make sure that you insert the ink cartridge into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the one you are installing.
6. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place.
7. Repeat steps 2 through 5 for each ink cartridge you are replacing.
8. Close the ink cartridge door.

re Printing in black only - you can do this by selection this option from your application and choosing the print properties of the printer and setting to Black / Greyscale printing only.

Won't print Black


I assume you have the black cartridge installed correctle and it has enough ink.
Check these : Either through Contol Panel or any other place where you can see a list of installed printers, select your printer.
Right Click on the Printer
Left cLick on Properties.
Left click on Preferences.
Click on Color tab
Choose ...Color Or Gray Scale
Some times it will show as Color OR Black
Choose black.
You have to do a test page.
Hope this will help.

Can ip1300 print with just black ink cartridge?


AS far as I know you cannot put a black cartridge in the place of a colour cartridge it has to be a colour one. Check your printer properties to see if you can set your printer to work in black only, if you can then set it to black but leave the empty colour cartridge in place. This works for my 1800. Give it a try.

Hp c4480 prints blue instead of black


Check the print properties and verify the black ink cartridge still has ink in it.

Otherwise, you may have a bad ink cartridge. If the cartridge has not been used for a while, the ink gums up the nozzle. You can try cleaning the ink cartridge and slot with alcohol. However, new color and black cartridges may be the best solution.

Won't print with just black ink cartridge


A part solution is print/properties/maintenance/ink cartridge settings/select black only.

You do initially have to buy another color cartridge but you won'thave to buy another expensive color cartridge again in the future.
