Question about HP D4360 DeskJet Printer InkJet

1 Answer

The color cartridge runs out very quickly even though I rarely use it. I make sure to print in black and white, and I manually choose the option "Use Black Cartridge only" but the color cartridge runs out anyway. I have replaced the cartridge but no change. Eventually once the color cartridge runs out it begins printing in weird colors (even when printing black and choosing "black cartridge only"). Help it's costing me a fortune!

Printer manufacturers design their printers to print some color mixed in with the black when you are only printing black. That is why your color cartridge is running out when you only print black and why it prints "weird colors" when the color cartridge is empty. Printer manufacturers sell the printers at a loss and make up the profit on the cartridges.

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.

I want to print in only black but my printer keeps telling me to install my color cartridge. How can I get my printer to work/print using only the black cartridge


You can print in only black and white by choosing the grayscale option in the print properties, but you still have to have ink in each of the color cartridges. Even if you are only printing black, the machine will not let you print if any of the colors are out.

Replace the empty ink cartridge, and then select "grayscale" to print only in black and white.

I HAVE MX 300 PRINTER IN WHICH THE COLOUR CARTRIDGE FINSHES OFF QUICKLY THOUGH I DO NOT USE COLOUR PRINTING PLEASE ADVISE


You can goto printer settings and choose black and white printing only, it will be there in one of the options of your printer.If your printer has only one cartage Color, then when you rpint in black and white you are using all 3 colors to create this black and white, nothing much you can do there. But if your printer has two cartages 1 black&white, and 1 color then tell it in settings to print only black and white, hope this helps

My printer has an almost full black cartridge but will not print.


Check the ink lines, the printer head might be clogged, If thats not fixing anything then check your printer settings on the computer and remove the color option. Changing it to black and white can somtimes just be from color, not just black.

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

How do you specify B&W printing on HP C4400


click "print" then go to the drag down menu that says "preview." go to "paper type/quality" and make sure it says "plain paper." then choose color: "grayscale." then click the "color options" tab and choose "black print cartridge only." if it is on the default paper setting of premium photo paper, it won't let you choose the black-only option. i don't know how to make the normal paper the default though because it won't save this on mine. so you have to go through these steps every time. unless anyone else knows??
