Re: printing pale

Make sure your printer is not set up as "draft" (see printing settings/properties). In addition try forcing the print quality to "best".

I know I am not low on ink (black) but I can't print anything in gray scale-comes out cyan. Changed black ink to a brand-new tank and still nothing. Took out CMY tank and still nothing. Worked the...

When you go to print, next to the printer selected hit "Properties". This may vary for various printers but under my Color options there is an option to print in grayscale. Look for this option and select it. Also, under print in grayscale it has an option to print in black ink only. Look for these options under your printer's settings.

Everytime I change my print to grayscale it prints in pink

Not knowing what sort of printer you have it's hard to pin-point exactly what the issue may be. Taking an educated guess I'm going to guess that you are using an inkjet of some sort. These printers will often use a combination of the cyan, magenta, and yellow inks to make black and shades of gray, and it is possible to get pink instead of gray if the cyan and and yellow are to low to provide a mix to produce gray. Try new ink cartridges to see if that makes any difference...some printers, like DesignJets use individual cartridges for each colour, and most small printers use a combination cartridget that contains cyan, magenta, and yellow ink in different reservoirs in the same tank.

If you are using a printer that doesn't require both the colour cartridge and the black cartridge in to function, try pulling out the colour cartridge and printing in grayscale. Most printer drivers are designed to recognize the fact that the printer only has the black cartridge in it and will automatically make the necessary adjustments.

Won't print after replacing cartridges

The following text copied from HP website to tackle this problem. minimtop.gif Follow the instructions below to install the print cartridges. NOTE: If you are installing ink cartridges in the unit for the first time, be sure to use only the print cartridges that came with the unit. The ink in these cartridges is specially formulated to mix with the ink in the print head assembly at first-time setup. s.gif Installing the print cartridges minimtop.gif
  1. Verify that the unit is on.
  2. Open the ink cartridge door. Figure 1: Opening the ink cartridge door c00718797.gif
  3. Squeeze the gray tab below an ink cartridge slot to release the gray latch and then lift the latch. Figure 2: Lifting the latch c00721793.gif 1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge 2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges NOTE: The ink cartridge areas are color-coded for easy reference. From left to right, the ink cartridges are black, yellow, light cyan, cyan, light magenta, and magenta.
  4. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
  5. Hold the ink cartridge by the handle and then slide the ink cartridge into the empty slot. NOTE: Make sure that the ink cartridge is inserted into the slot that has the same shaped icon and color as the ink cartridge. The copper-colored contacts should be facing the printer as the ink cartridge is inserted. Figure 3: Inserting an ink cartridge c00721795.gif
  6. Press down on the gray latch until it clicks into place. Figure 4: Closing the gray latch c00721796.gif
  7. Repeat steps 3 through 6 for each ink cartridge that needs to be replaced. NOTE: All six cartridges must be installed. The printer will not work if an ink cartridge is missing.
  8. Close the ink cartridge door. Figure 5: Closing the ink cartridge door c00718798.gif

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run

If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Sorry to say but NO you can't print if there are other inks which ae empty, thats one safety features of epson printers to prevent nozzle clogging. change the other ink carts as well for you to continue printing.
