I've noticed this on my all-in-one HP Office Jet. And though I had a little black ink left, I went ahead and installed a new black ink cartridge. Cleared up the problem. You would think what does black ink have to so with color issues but black is used in the color process. Maybe someone with more knowledge on color balancing may be able to answer that. Also, sometimes it may take several cleanings of the heads to clear them. It also depends on how old the printer is and how often it's used. So these are educated guesses but as I originally indicated my issue was due to black ink that either was old to begin with or had been in long enough to start causing issues. I hope this helps.
try by buying a new cartridges like the one you use before and clean first the print head to remove the smodges. see also you manual for compatibilites and instructions. ill find another solutions if this wont help you.
Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.

I just installed a canon mg 2120 printer to a new toshiba pc with windows 8. canon box and retailer It shows it's compatible. Went through all installation process, but printer keeps saying that it's "out of paper". I've loaded and reloaded the tray a dozen times. Printer just won't catch paper and run through the machine. What's wrong???
Please check your Printer setup. or options ( I am not familiar with this printer. what terms they use- I'm not sure) Ther will be options for Print in Color or Black. Make sure the radio button for COLOR is checked. This way, black and color both will print in the correct color. So leave it on color even when you want to print in Black. The black radio button is there for a different reason. Hope this will help you. luciana44
If your print driver is set to color. It will use all the colors to make black.
Because the machine is ink jet it needs to clean the print head to stop it from drying out. It will use color ink to flush the print head every two days.
When ever in receives a fax it will use some color when printing a fax, particularly Cyan.
If you only wish to print or receive faxes in black there is now a version of Brother fax that only uses black ink and has no color inks. However it may not be available in your region. If you try and cheat the system you will only kill your print head.
