Susanne,
Unfortunately almost all of the color lasers,except a few new Canon's,use the colors to make black.
That way they can inflate how many B&W pages you can get from the blck unit.
Sorry

I cannot get my printer to print. I have black ink and all other colours except cyan. I want to print in black and white but it won't work, please help


Hi there!
In order for you to print you need to refill your cyan ink cartridge. Even if you just want to print black and white.

I am having a problem printing with my HP printer


you wasted your time using cleaning program and heaps of ink...

follow this procedure:

1. remove all ink cartridges from the printer
2. check if ink is soluble in water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit (this which do not create lumps or precipitations is correct solvent)
3. put one drop of solvent in th centre of aspiration hole on receptable
4. if solvent is absorbed through input, that meant problem is not with printer but with cartridges.
5. check printer cartridge by stamping them with tissue if they "produce" any ink on the outlet,
6. put one drop of solvent on cartridge outlet and insert them in correct bases
7. print test page, print should be rather weak as solvent will go through the nozzles
8. print test page from computer
9.create "strip page" of each colour used, separate by no colour (white) start with yellow strip, then white, light cyan, white, cyan, white, light magenta, white, magenta, white, black - this strip pattern will force all cartridge to operate on they max delivery.

if there is no result, service by technician will be in place...

all ink based printers need to print at least one page per week... ink will dry pretty fast, especially in dry or hot condition.

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.

My Epson Stylus CX4200 will not print because my Cyan ink is out. I tried printing in black and white only but still won't print because of the one empty cartridge. Is there any way I can still print...


I have a CX4800 and after clicking Print, I click Properties, then check Black ink only (is this how you are printing black and white - or is your document black and white)
If you haven't tried this option - it is worth a shot.

My cyan cartridge shows as empty. My black


No. You need all the cartridges installed with functioning chips for your printer to work. The reason why you need all the colors when all you print is black is because a small amount of color prints when you print black. The manufacturers want to make up their R&D costs on the printers by selling lots of expensive ink.

My printer wont print black and white only


My Epson Stylus cx8400 uses ink so fast. I would like to turn this into a black and white printer only. The problem is, I am out of one of the color ink cartridges and it won't let me proceed until I replace it. Is there a way, in the mode it's in now, to get this to print with the black and white only? I am nearly out of ink on all color cartridges now and do not want to purchase more at the high cost they are.

Thank you!

Printing when ink is low


The machine requires all color in order to print anything, even just black and white copies. You need to install a new cyan ink before it will print.
