Are you sure you've attached a colored print cartridge? Because if you don't have a colored print cartridge, the printer won't print out colored documents. OR, if you DO HAVE a colored cartridge, check if it still has ink. Have it refilled if it's got none. OR... if you got a cartridge, and has ink in it, the settings of the printer itself might be set to: black and white or greyscale. You can change this setting at the settings, though! good luck!

Color cartridge runs out even though I'm only printing b&w typed scripts. Any way to shut it off? Only have use for color printing once in a blue moon Hewlett Packard HP DeskJet Printer #932C


Even though you print a b/w document... unless you say 'black cartridge only' in your printing preferences, all the colors get used.

Find 'black cartridge only' in your printing preferences, or 'print in greyscale' and then print your document. You must specify this for your printer to know that it must use the black only.

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.

Color printing


well there is always a way to reset the ink reading from the printer software or drivers thats the first thing i can think about

but did you try to remove the color cartridge and put it back in after turning off and on the printer

i mean take off the cartridge and turn of the printer
turn it on and put the cartridge back

see if that is going to help

and as i said check the printer driver and right click on it go to properties and check the color management bar.

i hope that would be

take care

Printing in color


Since you already tried cleaning tha colored cartridges the next thing that you can possible do is to remove all the cartridges then turn off the printer for 5 minutes then put the cartridges back in and hopefully now the printer will be able to recognize that cartridges are still not epty, but if still the same thing try to use another colored cartridges if possible so we can check if that will also give the saem results...

Hope that helps.......

I have a Canon printer/scanner MP210. I ran out of black ink, though at the time, the color ink was working perfectly. I replaced the black ink cartridge and the printer now prints in black perfectly. ...


First try a hard reset - Unplug printer from power supply, wait 2 minutes and replug and see. If that doesnt work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver and software. Also ensure that the cartridge is properly seated in the holder.

Canon pixma ip6600d omitting black ink


Many printers use color to make black, you may have to FORCE it to use the black ink cartridge for black or turn off something that is telling the printer to use the color cartridges for the black.

That's my educated guess anyway...

I do know that some printers do this, so I'm assuming this is what is giving you trouble. I don't know why it would print any different on a memory card than from the computer though...
