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 have a Kodak ESP 3250. I always print Black Only, but after a few months I get a 3508 error code telling me to replace my color cartridge. I cannot use the printer, period!!! Since I only print...


If this printer is like some of the HP printers I have serviced in the past, many printers like this use a tiny bit of color as a "primer" to make the black "blacker" and to prevent bleeding in systems where the color is dye and the black is pigment.
A number of printers may allow a "use black only" in the driver settings, but many other printers will simply refuse to print if the color runs out, even if you are printing black and white.
The short answer is, chances are, you need to replace the color cartridge.

I need to print a lot of only black and white documents, I have full cartridges of black ink but the color is empty. For some reason it keeps printing the black off the color cartridge. I need to find out...


Since I don't know what operating system you have on your computer, here are the steps for all Windows operating system from Canon for your printer. If these don't work, let me know but usually once you change the settings for black and white only, it works fine.

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.

Installing only one printer cartridge


suggest you install a color cartridge and set up the printer for color. When the color cartridge runs out of ink, you should be able to continue printing in black only.

I have run out of black ink in the large cartridge. Can I make the rpinter use the smaller cartridge to print black and white?


No, the larger cartridge is used for text printing only.

The smaller cartridge is used to add black to images instead of using the color ink to make a composite black.

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...


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.

Printing in black & white when color cartridge ran out


One of the possible reason why you can't print black in white because Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. More than that Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head.

Print black & white?


Your printer will keep using the color cartridges to keep the printing head working even if you don't print in color. If you need to print only in greyscale, buy a cheap HP printer (Printer only, not a PSC) and remove the color cartridge.
