I had this problem. It's actually very easy to fix:

- Click Print -> Properties
- Go to "Advanced" tab
- "More options"
- Deselect "Use color cartridge for all black printing"
- Select "Use black cartridge to print black and white"
- Click "Ok"

You should be able to select the "Print in black and white" option now and stop all the frustration!

Try REMOVING THE POWER CABLE to printer for 1 minute then try again (some printers auto reset to factory settings after 1 minute)

I want to print using my lexmark X6170 but I don't want to print color so I didn't put a color cartridge in. It keeps coming up with an error message and won't print at all.


Some printers require you to have the color cartridges in them even when you are printing black and white. You usually can in your print options choose black and white over color.

In printing properties have you selected the 'grayscale' option, if still not working, in printer properties select maintenance > select Ink and cartridge settings > there select "black Ink only"

Can't print color only black and white


Please check if your Colour Ink Cartridge is not emply. If their's ink in the cartridge then try to service your printer through the Print Preferences. Your Colour Cartridge Nozzels could have been blocked thats why your printer is unable to print in Colour.

In case if both the above doesn't work then check in the Print Preferences that you should not have saved the option of PRINT DOCUMENT IN BLACK ONLY. hope this helps , AJ

Dell Photo 944 won't print black and white


I had the same problem and just figured it out! On your control panel, choose printer and then Properties. Go to Printing Preferences and click on the Advanced tab. Under this tab is a button for More Options and then a section Complete-A-Print. I had to uncheck "use color cartridge for all black printing" and then check "use black cartridge to print in black and white." Then I had the option back to print in black and white. I have a Dell Photo 964 but I'm assuming the options should be the same. Hope this helps someone!

I am trying to print in black and white on my dell photo AIO printer 926 it wont even let me check the box for to print in black and white what can I do?


The problem was that the print options had switched to print using the color cartridge to make up for my empty black ink cartridge.

After you click on print, and then click the preferences button, next go to the Advanced tab. Once there, there should be another button that says, More options. Once that tab is opened, check the box that says, "Use black cartridge to print in black and white."

I was convinced that something was wrong with my new printer cartridge and called Dell. Unfortunately, they wouldn't or couldn't help me and I just lucked up this solution.

Printer won't print


Many printers will not print if one color is out, some will. One thing to check is to make sure that when you print, the option for "balck and white" is selected in the printing preferences.

Many people don't realize that even though the document may be black and white the printer still processes it as a color document which wastes costly supplies.

Print in black ink only


I know you can print in Greyscale which prints in black and white only. On your Windows computer, you should just be able to click Start -> Printers and Faxes, then right-click your printer and choose Printing Preferences. Look for a tab that says Color and click it. There should be a selection, probably a check box, that lets you choose "Print in Greyscale". Afterwards, when you print, even color documents will print in black-and-white only.

Switching between color and black and white


Go here. In the search box in the center of the screen, type "print with black ink only" and click Search. Choose the appropriate link, and you will get instructions for printing from either Windows or Mac.
