I bought the wrong printer for my needs and the cartridges for my HP Photosmart C309g-m run out when I don't even want color. Is there a way to set permanately, not with every printing secssion to use...


Hi

Yes you can set it to print permanently. You have to go to Printer proprieties and go to color option and choose Gray scale printing only and this will not use the other inks at all but black cartridge only for printing.

I have a Kodak ESP 3250. I always print Black Only, but after a few months I get a 3508 error code telling me to replace my color cartridge. I cannot use the printer, period!!! Since I only print...


If this printer is like some of the HP printers I have serviced in the past, many printers like this use a tiny bit of color as a "primer" to make the black "blacker" and to prevent bleeding in systems where the color is dye and the black is pigment.
A number of printers may allow a "use black only" in the driver settings, but many other printers will simply refuse to print if the color runs out, even if you are printing black and white.
The short answer is, chances are, you need to replace the color cartridge.

My black ink will not print. Do I have to have


The larger of the two black cartridges is used for text only printing.

The saller cartridge is used for black in graphic images or pictures.

This saves you color ink . It allows you to put the black ink on the image without making the color inks blend the black ink.

How can i use epson stylus c45 without black ink its urgent plz


If this is a color printer, then you cannot use it without the "Black" cartridge.

Most printer manufacturers will pull from the "Black" ink to print black on color images. They do this to save on creating a "processed black" from the color inks.

Just curious, are you using a "CMYK" system? (Cyan, Magenta,Yellow and Black inks)

My printer is not printing. it will run the paper


I see you don't have much knowledge about printers. It always helps to know something about your printer. It seem you have a color printer. Usually a color printer has two cartridges. Black cartridge and color cartridge. The color cartridge usually contains three colors; cyan, yellow and magenta. If the black cartridge is empty, you won't see black text in the printed paper. Print a small photo and see. If it has all the colors, but looks dull (without proper black color), that means only the black cartridge is empty. If it is greenish, the magenta ink is missing. Generally orange colored printouts suggest cyan is missing. Likewise, purple color means the yellow ink is missing. If you installed the printer properly using the CD from the printer manufacturer, you will be notified when the cartridge is empty or close to run out of ink. But if Windows automatically installed your printer, then the system won't give such information. From the information you have supplied, I believe your blck cartridge is empty or missing. Oh, I almost forgot to say, some manufactures sell some printers (for example some Canon Pixma models) with only the color cartridge. Switch on the printer and open the printer cover. The cartridges will move to the middle. You can check whether the black cartridge is missing. Do not hesitate to contact us for further help.

Can I use my canon mp 140 printer without color cartridge?


It WOULDNT work without a colour cartridge inserted. It MAY just work with an EMPTY colour cartdridge (the only printing black) but it just would not work without a colour cartridge in there

Question about ink cartridges


Hello,

The printer will take a little quantity of color ink though you are printing in black in order to get good quality. Hence it is not possible to print with just black ink cartridge without color cartridge.

Thank you.
