Printing in black and white on Canon MP610

I would like to know how to print web pages in black and white please.  Pressing the black and white button only seems to relate to scans and photos. Thanks.

    Same problem. Cnnot print a simple black and white test page or any other. WIll print B/W if I select photo paper, but this is not a real solution and will waste ink from other cartriges. Any ideas? I have reinstalled Windows XP, SP3, all updates from MS. Maybe a different driver?? I downloaded the latest driver from Canon's website for XP. Help!?!?

    I have the same thing. Printing in Grayscale doesn't solve the problem. If you run out of a colour but have loads of black ink left it will not let you print in grayscale! Grayscale uses small amounts of colour. Its very frustrating and a waste of my colour ink to endlessly using grayscale or colour.

    Any suggestions please on how to find the B&W setting?

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 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.

Why is my printer not printing black and white photos...I get green prints. Recently loaded new black in and still getting green

Go to printer settings and locate the "Print in greyscale" menu, and select "Black Ink Only" as shown below, 04223f5.jpg

(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.

HP C4500 ink consumption

Dear Sir,

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.

good luck

I'm getting banding on black and white text prints, some lines of text don't show up at all. Have tried all the cleaning and alignment functions with no joy.

Try this. 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

Brother Scanner, scans the page but prints black and vertical

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.

Scanned Items or Copies all print in Solid Black

I assume that you mean color images are being produced in black and white. If that's the case, there's a document on the HP web site that shows you what to look for and provides solutions:

Color Image Prints in Black and White

Good luck.
