Re: Printing inkless printing

Gecko17 How old is your cartridge? is there is enought ink to print your document? If so then... Take out the cartridge carefully from your printer without touching any contact points, heads etc. Clean the head's of your printer cartridge carefully by using head cleaner fluid. After that, reinstall your cartrige and please try to print again. If this deosn't solve your problems, you may need to replace your cartridge with new one. thanks

Only want to use blkac ink only

When you want to print a page whether its a word page or any webpage as you give that print command before printing you will find many options in the left hand side like Destination,pages,layout,COLOR,margins options, So before printing the page you can easily check in the "black and white" option and it will simply print in black.

If the information helped you then please give me some ratings.Thankx

Step one: Check the ink cartridges HP doesn't guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink.

Prints only on left side of page.


In printing web pages and email please try to check also the print setting before you print the page cause word document files and web pages are not the same in there printing setting. Web pages and emails has different setting so my recommendation is that when you print email and webpages next time then please check the printer settings then modify it the same settings as you wish or as your word document's output.
