Question about Dell 3000cn Laser Printer

1 Answer

My Dell 3000cn is printing slowly

It's going at the 'colour' speed even when printing black only. I think this is only since I bought a new laptop with Vista. I cannot 'install' the disc again as it will only automatically recognise equiment using a USB port.

Do the documents have even a little bit of color?

if not, try this. When printing a document, after you press print, select preferences of the printer and at the bottom there is an option for output color. change that to black. Hope that helps

My printer doesn't print black. I did all the maintenance on it but it hasn't fixed it. I even bought a new print cartridge but that didn't fix it either.


You do need the color installed sadly.

This printer needs a colour cartridge to be installed to be able to print black therefore you do need all 4 cartridges to have ink in order for your printer to print.

Won't print in colour


In the Printer Settings you have to leave it as '"Print in Color" always not Black even if you want to print B&W.
Good Luck

Canon i9100: colors printing incorrectly


I've had the Canon i9100 since 2003 and have excellent photo printing results. In 2009 it started playing up and I'd gt some banding. More recently, black didn't want to print. It was as though the black ink in the print head got dry some days.

April 2010 - The colours started printing strange and I bought a brand new print head and installed it. Only takes a minute. Still had an issue with photo printing. Black and white was excellent but colours weren't true.

Found advice online to try cleaning the print head to print head carrier electrical contacts by rubbing them with a rubber eraser.

I did that and now I'm getting perfect colour photo prints again.

I had been thinking about buying a new A3+ printer but this is old printer is now working as good as new.

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

Canon MP360 not printing


You probably need a new purge assembly, it draws some ink to both clean and prime the printhead. When it stops working you won't get any ink to the paper.

Want to print in b&w


I think the problem might be with the printer you are using. All my printers that I am using with different pc's using vista (4 printers all from different companies) have a colour and a greyscale button I can select under the quality tab in printer preferences. I don't get a B & W button to select from at all. I checked the help file in vista and it mentions "print color images in black and white" briefly, and the only thing it says is "option only available on supported printers". I am guessing you didn't upgrade your printer when you went to vista and maybe the OS doesn't support all the functions on the old printer. I had to give my favourite printer away to a friend and buy a new one when I changed to vista originally as my old one wouldn't even connect after I upgraded. Got very annoyed over that one let me tell you. At least yours still works so you had a better experience than I got stuck with after upgrading. Can you check your printer makers website to see if they have updated Vista drivers for your model? If they don't they might have some other info on doing what you want to do. Otherwise see about upgrading the printer to something newer I guess.

How to use only black cartridge on cx7450 epson !


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. You need to consider 2 things, firstly the official line: Epson (and all other inkjet manufacturers) do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing. It is also why the "print in Black only" option (available on some printers) only works when the coloured inks are OK.
The 2nd unofficial line is that it is a win-win situation for manufacturers. Firstly they get to cut down on costly warranty call outs for blocked heads (replacement printers, technician manhours, etc) and secondly they get to sell lots more inks (Ka-ching!). If you really want to print black text only (and save cash on price per-print) then a mono-laser printer is the best way as they can now be bought at inkjet prices.

Only prints black & blue


I have a similar problem - i can print all colours apart from red.
I've tried cleaning, deep-cleaning, and even bottom plate cleaning but of none if this improves anything.

Tried cleaning the print heads and nozzles with cotton buds, but this dont do anything. Even tried re-seating the cartridges but this does nothing either
