The Cyan-yellowish color has either dried up or has bad nozzles. Take out the color cartridge and put in on a glass dish with 1/8 inch of warm water on it. After 5 minutes, wipe it dry with tissue paper or paper towel and try it in printer again. You'll probably need a new color cartridge, there is a large failure rate of cartridges from the mfg. and re-mfg.

It could be the settings in the application that you are using for your picture. With your picture-to-print open, click File -> Print. Click Properties, Preferences, Options or Setup. Make sure the setting is set to print in color and not black-only printing. Click Ok or Print.

the ink can probably just be left empty in the tray, this will be color has no ink left, but black dose, hence you should be able to print with the black only now. taking out color or tricolor will result in nothing being printed. some printers have the option to select black and white print modes only, this will be your best bet to use only black and white. and will yield more then 15% efficiency over color that uses far more ink due to pixelation and blending modes.

HP Deskjet, Set to Black & White; but still prints with color!


Bronze, hopefully this is a logical issue: Assuming you're on WinXP > Go to Start>Control Panels>Printers (and faxes).
Find the printer in question in the list (maybe there's only one or 2 listed) and 'Right-click' on the icon > go down to "Printing Preferences" (about second/third down the list).
In here you will be able to set the printers default settings. I'm not 100% familiar with HPs printing dialog, but there maybe a setting there for either 'Black & White' and 'Grayscale' (albeit it should be greyscale, anyway...) if you choose black and white your printing will not have any mid-tone, so if there's a choise, choose 'Grayscale'.
You can set other features here which will become the new default each time you go to print something - personally I set to 'Draft' or 'Fast Draft' mode by default, that way when I just print out rubbish, I am saving "lots" of ink and if I want something in good quality, I change it at time of printing.
Now, there are some programs and files that "remember" you last print settings, so if you've used a colour print setting previously, that file may still pring in colour, even though the new defaults are mono (black & white). So, print using the new defaults and save the file when finished. It's unlikely the case with OpenOffice, but, I don't know. We'll tackle that as we get to it.
So, if that has not cured the problem, please let me know.

How can I print a color picture without using a black catridge?


Black ink is an essential part of the printing process. The black color is only made by the black cartridge, the color cartridge does make "black".
One or more optional photo cartridges may be available, depending on your printer model.
  • Use the photo cartridge with a tri-color cartridge for best-quality color photos and graphics, and sepia or antique photos.
  • Choose a gray photo cartridge to print black and white photos with truer grays and richer blacks.

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black


I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.

HP 8150 Wont Print in color


Hi i have simular problems i think. i did getting a fault on my cartridge and the fault message i getting tells me that something is wrong with cartridge and printer will print in backup mode by takeing away the black cartridge, i did try to change to a new black cartridge and the same problems appear.
After some investigating of this problem it seems to be a kind of delikat on my printer, inside where the black cartridge should be placed there are a metall "feather/spring" this has losen at one time i dont know when. but this sharp metall "spring" have been pushed in when replacing cartridge and made a hole in white elektrical connections for this particular cartridge and may damage this connections, maybe this has happend with yours printer as well.!?

And know how to fix this, with no support left at HP there arent so much to do i believe i have to use cartridge with triple color or trow this one away and buy a new one. Use and trow away with blessing from HP.

Black and white printing not working


sounds like its a expired ink issue. on alot of the hp photosmart printers the ink has a expirey date on the carts the best solution would be to contact hp and chances are they will send you free carts if your ink has been expired. when a black ink is almost out most of the time it trys to draw ink from the color carts mixing to make the appropriate color.

but you can also try the following.
See the instructions for
calibrating a print cartridge in
the Care and Maintenance
section of the HP Photosmart
Printer Help.

Have you tried cleaning the print heads or replacing the color cartridge? where as it it printing black fine it leads me to believe the problem lies in the color cartridge. my first recomendation would be to run the clean print head wizard in the printer settings and if that does not work then replace your color cartridge.
