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.

Want to print only black and white


Printing with only black and white as the primary color would be easy.

First, we would need to know what software are you using for printing.
It can be a black and white picture and/or just a simple word document.
Usually, when you print, there would the "Printer Options" first.
Once there, you would have options to change it to your liking.

If you have some problems. Don't hesitate to leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

Canon Pixma 3600 I want black & white printing only for documents Question: How do i turn off the colour cartridges for black & white printing only?

The Grayscale print option optimizes the look of color slides for printing on a black and white printer by adding shading. The Pure Black and White option prints your slides in monochrome.

  1. Open the presentation you want to print.
  2. Click on the word File in the Menu Bar.
  3. Select the option Print.
  4. The Print dialog will appear.

How do i print only black and white copies

  • Click "Start" and then click "Devices and Printers."

  • Right-click the printer you want to use to print only black and white then select "Printing Preferences."
  • Select black-and-white (grayscale) for the print color and click "OK." Everything you print in any application will now be in black and white. If you want to change the option back to what it was previously, go through the steps again and choose a different option.

    My Hp 1401 or 1400 all in one printer's software will not work on my new vista computer. I somehow changed the color to print a black and white photo, can't remember how I done it. Now everything prints...

    1. If you need to change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on the software application, this button might be called Properties, Options, Printer Setup, Printer, or Preferences.
    2. Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available in the Paper/Quality, Finishing, Effects, Basics, and Color tabs. (Color Tab should allow you to change from only Black printing)
    3. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box.

    I cannot print in color even though I can print

    What has changed?

    Is it possible that the color cartridge is empty?

    Check the driver properties and make sure that the driver hasn't been changed to "Monochrome", "Grayscale" or Black and White.

    Can't print color only black and white

    Please check if your Colour Ink Cartridge is not emply. If their's ink in the cartridge then try to service your printer through the Print Preferences. Your Colour Cartridge Nozzels could have been blocked thats why your printer is unable to print in Colour.

    In case if both the above doesn't work then check in the Print Preferences that you should not have saved the option of PRINT DOCUMENT IN BLACK ONLY. hope this helps , AJ

    Only prints in black and white

    before you print go to the print properties or preferences, in there see if you find a setting that says black/white or color. select color then print.

    you may or may not have this option. the older HP ink-jets defaulted to Black/white and you had to manualy select color from the current document you where printing.
