Mollmal...if you read the previous posts you would realize that the grayscale option still uses color....and does not solve the problem...there are two black ink cartridges in my printer...a small one that goes with all the color ones and a large black ink resevoir...the small one is completely empty...the big one is full....I think what people want to know is ....how do they print in black and white solely from the big one...I would like to know also
Click the arrow next to your printer name at the top of the print window to get the full print set-up menu. Then click on you browser name in a bar about 3/4 of the way down the menu. Select Quality & Media. Go to the bottom and select Grayscale box. This will give you b&w printing from the web.

Go to printer settings and locate the "Print in greyscale" menu, and select "Black Ink Only" as shown below,
(Please note that this is only when you need to print black and white, you have to select "Print in Color" when you are going to print color documents.)
Hope this helps, Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.
Try this one, Turn on the printer, Take out the inks, remove the printhead, put back the printhead make sure it will snap and you hear a click, put the inks back, wait for the printer to initialize, Press the Menu button, look for Calibrate printer, then print calibration page, then scan it after. Load a regular paper. Then try to print a demo page by pressing Photo and Copy at the same for 5 seconds then let it go. If same problem persist call this no for further assistance 1800 421 6699 Thanks
Now a days all HP ink catridges available at low price that means ink quantity is also low.So if you print heavy coloured pages it will deffinately consumes more ink.So print in gray scale or black and white consumes low ink. Compare to gray scale,black and white printing consumes very low ink. So print in black and white is the better choice.
Insert a genuine black cartridge (if you are not already using one).
This worked for me on a C6180 printer
1.Try placing sheet of black text on copy board, and run many copies black only. I ran 25x12 times still no black. Run head clean after about each 50 sheets. Persevered and finally BLACK ink OK
turn the printer on, place the picture on the glass, on the printer under mode press the big silver button until the scan light comes on then press select, you should hear the picture scanning, then on the computer, go under my pictures and you should see that picture.
I called technical support for this issue previously with my brother mfc. It would only do this during color scanning. b&w scanning was just fine. The tech support put me through resetting the reference point of the scanner through a series of button pressing and closing and opening the paper feeder. I kept gettting the same lousy results. Then they determined that the scanner module needs replacing and I needed to take to the nearest service center.
1. does scanning from the pc looks good ? 2. printing photos from the pc looks good ? 3. does standalone copy (placing image on the scanner bed then pressing the COPY button on the printer) looks good ?
