This printer only has a color cartridge, but you can still use the color cartridge to print black and white. It mixes the cyan, magenta, and yellow inks to make black. You do not have to do anything special to make this happen--just print as normal.

My lexmark pro901 work print color or black & white


Are you having some issues with your printer? Can you give me more details about any issues you're experiencing on your printer?
If you meant to say that your printer is not printing "color" or "black and white", make sure your firmware is updated. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Pro900 Series Firmware Update.
The update helps fix print quality issues and will give you a highly reliable print system. If this does not help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Im trying to print a black and white document but it wont let me print because my color cartridge is missing


The Lexmark X2600 requires both cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing, even if your printing in "black and white". To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink. , Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality issues.

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.

Good day! Here's an article in the Lexmark website that will show you how to use the Print Properties Dialog on the Lexmark 4200 series. It has some graphics to better understand the instructions. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/bvMxnp . You should be able to come across Print Color images in Black and White option. Hope this helps. Good luck!
