Its really not a problem as much as it is a question. I would like to know if I can switch the text color from black to another color to print documents? I am low on black and it is not printing clearly...


Try changing the font color on you word processor software (Microsoft Word) from black to say red ! Select 'all the text', change the color and print it. Should work.

How to Remove Scratches in Stainless Steel


Whether you can remove a scratch has much to do with how deep the scratch goes. Here are several ways to deal with this problem and restore your cookware, stainless steel appliances, countertops or sinks to their former glory.


Consider using a product made for stainless steel such as Scratch-B-Gone or Bar Keepers Friend.

Or, try spraying an all-purpose cleaner (such as Formula 409) on the scratches.

Use a non-metal scouring pad (such as Scotch-Brite pads) to rub the cleaner in, always rubbing in the direction of the grain.

Keep the stainless steel wet with the cleaner as you work, and rinse the pad often.

Rinse the surface and wipe dry.

You may also use a solution such as WD-40 to help fill in the sctraches and coat the stainless steel on the unit(s).

If its a new photo have it ready to pick up on your desktop, unless its easy to find in your system

Open messenger window.
Left click on your avatar picture
Select "display image"
Select "share my picture"
Select "select"
Select a random picture from the gallery - by clicking on it - ( to make sure it changes & your Flashplayer is ok )
Select the picture you want to display, if its not one in the gallery, click "browse" and find the photo you want - double click on it, make sure its in the display panel. Note sometimes the image will be blacked-out. This will either be a flashplayer problem or the file you selected the photo from has numbers or / ., etc - you can try renaming the file.
Click "OK" in top photo panel
Make sure "share my picture" is still selected
Click "OK"

When you open the chat window the display images may be hidden - look for the little "head and shoulder" icon with an arrow pointing to it on the right hand upper side of the window - click on this to show pictures.

My printer only prints pictures, no text.


Sounds like your black pigment (PGBK-5) cartridge has clogged up the printhead or similar.

You could try running a single Deep clean on the that colour alone (use Right click printer > printing preferences > maintenance tab > Deep Cleaning)

If that doesn't work you will probably need to either:
- clean the printhead (see this thread)
or
- replace the printhead/cartridge

Hope that helps.

MP 780 DOESN'T PRINT


Try printing something in a colored font, like red or green and see what happens. This printer uses two black ink cartridges. It uses the larger one for black text printing. If it is dry, blocked, or damaged, your text (usually black) will not print. Changing to a color font will rule that out.

Good luck.

Epson c88 how print in magenta


Do you mean "how do I print text in Magenta instead of black". Well, you change the colour of the text from black to magenta. For example in Word, you would select (highlight) all the text, click on Format, then Font. Then click on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, then click on Magenta. To check you have the right colour, click again on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, and select More Colors. Then click on Custom. Magenta has a Red-Green-Blue value of 255-0-255. Now print the document and it will come out with magenta text.

If this is not what you want, please come back with a new comment explaining further.
