You have 2 questions.
a) black and white print.
solution:
click on start menu and go to printers and faxes. under printers and faxes right click your printer and go to preferences. under preferences go to advanced tab and click on the button that says more options. Uncheck use black cartridge to print black and white. click apply and then ok .

b) to print to larger scale if depends on what internet browser you are using. for IE7 click on the printer icon and go to print preview and the right most drop down menu suggests "Shrink to fit" change that to 100%.

hope this helps

My 5510 will do a good test page but when I want to print out something else ,it goes into very slow mode


Dear user,

the speed depends on what you are printing , slowest will for color pictures, also black and white picture will take time followed by text page, the test page usually has just few stuff to be printed hence it appears to be printed too fast.

It may be set for grayscale (black and white) in the print properties. Go into the print properties in Word and look for a color or black and white setting, either under Color Management or Advanced. Set it for color, and then print your color document.

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software.
The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

MY HP PSC 1315V WILL PRINT THE HEADER AND FOOTER OF PAGES I TRY TO PRINT FROM THE INTERNET BUT THE REST OF THE PAGE CONTENT IS ALMOST INVISIBLE


Most web pages are in color. Your web browser adds black headers and footers. I would suggest printing a test page to make sure the unit produces color correctly. If not, you can force the output to be in black and white, which should be legibile.

On Windows, go to Start>Settings>Printers and Faxes, then right-click on your printer and open the Properties page. There should be a "Print Test Page" button at the bottom.

In the printing preferences you need to select Black and white.

1. open the document you want to print
2. click file
3. click print
4. select printer from list, then click on preferences
5. look around the pages.

In Color tab I found a print in Grayscale - this setting will print the document in black and white colors, the pages may be diffrent on diffrent printers. look for black and white setting or Grayscale.

picture: printing preferences, color page on a hp printer, select grayscale with black cartridge only.

I just got a hp photosmart c4480 printer and it makes black and white copies, but I can't figure out how to print in black and white like when I am on a web site.


OK, Whe you select Print from the File Menu and the Print window opens, selct the Color tab.

There should be an option to Print in Grayscale. Check the box beside it and click OK at the bottom. Then back at the Print window, click Print.

(Note: If this option is not on the Color tab, or you do not have a color tab, look on the Advanced tab for the same thing.)

Need additional help...use the Comment link.

Thanks for using Fixya.

HP 1610 prints color blocks all over a black and white page.


You are lucky you can print ANYTHING! My unit has NEVER worked (3 years) due to a hardware defect of HP. I downloaded patches, cleaned/replaced cartridges, etc.
Spoke to HP last nite-Was told printer was junk-they don't carry it or any parts to fix it anymore!! I was told to replace it!

Try printing a windows test page from the driver software, START-SETTINGS_PRINTERS-DELL964- properties,,etc. If the test page prints with color then I believe that your driver is set to print in greyscale. If you can't find that option in the driver you might try to re-install the driver from your original cd.
