SOURCE: Brother DCP-145C Print in black and white..?

As far as i know it will not work for color print unless all the cartridges are full. It will still print in b&w- go to properties of your printing document and change to "greystyle" but this will only work if you don't/have not turned off the machine at the power point. Once the machine is reset it wants to confirm all new cartridges and wont allow a black print until they are all in and full. So you cant use cartridges that have run out to "trick it".
I'm not sure if this is the intent of brother ( my guess is yes) a design oversight or a genuine precaution measure for consistency by not letting the printing heads dry out.
The yellow always runs out first, so stock up on them if you do alot of color printing- but the cartridges only last for 6 months so don't go crazy.

Brother if your reading this- Most of us don't care about color~! We just need a printer for uni and information. Make it work on our price range please!

SOURCE: Printer willl print color but does not print black and white

Hi There You can try/

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Won't print black when set for plain paper


Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

There is no white ink in the printer. White needs to come from the paper.
The inks in your printer can only make your paper DARKER, and you can't get any darker than black.

The black, print quality when printing a document on white paper, is not 100%


Few questions, are you running true Canon Inks and refills are always a off black not a true canon black!

Have you tried doing nozzel check, does the top black squares all come out ok? if so it could be down to the paper and the inks!
if you use 80gsm paper does it print ok?

Hope this helps

Error 9-363


NOTE: The problem occurs because of the trickle development system in the machine, making extended lengths of black and white copies / prints does not allow the black developer housing to purge itself of excess waste Toner (Dry Ink) and Developer. There are two solutions for the problem:
  • Make 1,000 copies / prints of a black and white job, then make 150 copies / prints of full color. Continue making 1,000 copies / prints of the black and white job, then 150 full color, and so on, until the entire black and white job is complete.
  • Make extended jobs in groups of 100 by making 100 copies / prints of the black and white job, then allowing the machine to cycle down (return to 'Ready') and making the next 100 copies / prints. Continue in this pattern until the entire black and white job is complete.
NOTE: The above solutions are based on jobs using 8.5 x 11 inch paper, single sided, with no more than 28% coverage.

PRINTING ON BLACK PAPER


That would require a very special "white ink" print cartridge for your printer. The regular color ink cartridges won't do this, since they can only make the black paper "black-er" when it prints ink on the paper. You may want to ask the manufacturer (Canon) if they make a special "white ink" cartridge for that printer, or know of someone who does. Your only other option is to make a "negative" print image in Photoshop, or a similar graphics software application, and then PRINT the black ink on white paper... which will then leave everything you want to "print white" as an unprinted area on the white surface of regular paper. (Note: with such heavy printing you would want probably want to use a heavier grade of paper, such as 28# or 60#.) This will use a LOT of ink, but it may be the only way you can accomplish your goal. Hope this helps...

The black cartridge printhead needs to be cleaned or replaced. Follow your printer manual instructions.
