Yes, you can bypass the color printing. The software you are using for printing can help you change from colour to gray scale or adjust it in the printer PROPERTIES, hope this helps AJ

How can I print in grayscale on my Canon PIXMA MG8120?


That printer has multiple ways to print grayscale. The best is directly from the print menu, when you tell it to print, one of the things in the pop up box on most apps, like Word or Excel is "Options", or Print Options. From there you can set all kinds of things, and there should be a box you can check for Print Grayscale for whatever you are trying to print at the moment. You can also set grayscale as a default setting for all printing on your windows device, but then you have to tell it when you want color every time. Alternatively, on your Printers Menu System, on the third page of your little printer screen, there is a Settings option. This will lead you to all printer settings including grayscale printing setup.

Hi

Have you checked the settings if they are set to Grayscale only or use black cartridge only. Options in printer settings? try to restore all to default settings and this will solve your problem.

The black cartridge (Brother LC51) doesn't print on my Brother MFC 685CW. The other 3 cartridges print just fine and passed the Print Quality Check. Running clean cycle doesn't help


In order to print in Black and White using grayscale, you will need to adjust the printing preferences within the driver. To change the printer properties complete the following steps:


1. Open the Printers Folder:


  • Windows 2000: Click Start => Settings => Printers.


  • Windows XP: Click Start => Printers and Faxes.


  • Windows Vista: Click the Start button => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers.


  • Windows 7: Click the Start button => Devices and Printers.


2. Right click on the Brother printer driver and left click Printing Preferences.


3. Click the Advanced tab.


4. Select Grayscale.


5. Click APPLY => OK. Your printer will now print in grayscale.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .

Color toner used up even though I selected grayscale


Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.

In the printing preferences you need to select Black and white.

1. open the document you want to print
2. click file
3. click print
4. select printer from list, then click on preferences
5. look around the pages.

In Color tab I found a print in Grayscale - this setting will print the document in black and white colors, the pages may be diffrent on diffrent printers. look for black and white setting or Grayscale.

picture: printing preferences, color page on a hp printer, select grayscale with black cartridge only.
