I have a CX4900...and here's my advice...BUY A DIFFERERNT ONE!!...LOL Just kidding. your black printer head is clogged. you can do one of two things..get the head replaced or use the cleaning and alignment diagnostic program on your computer to determine what the prob really is....and after you get it fixed, be sure to clean them on a regular basis, usually about the time lines or spots start showing up on that photo you took of lines and dots in science class...hehehe. This drinks up the ink, and I don't really like the concept, but hey, it's the backbone of free enterprise, so wot da hey...

May be your Color ink is out, but you should try this first.
Go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Right Click you Active Printer > Get Preferences > Then there you will find something like Printing Option or Color Tab, Click It and check your Printer is at color Mode or Not.
If i was helpful, kindly do Rate! Regards.

1) Try cleaning the printheads as outlined in your manual.
2) Replace black ink.


May be a clogged nozzle.

Go through the printhead cleaning at least twice.

Word/Excel/Notepad docs will not print in black ink, will print in all other colors (incl those that require black ink) and everything else not Office product will print in black--new problem


Hi katethecat,

It is the Setup in your software.

First of all check this:
Go to CONTOL PANEL-> Printers-> select your printer if there are more than one listed.
Right Click on the name of the printer
Left click for the following:
Printing Preferences-.> color
Make sure the Color is selected and not the black or grayscale.
Click Ok
Exit from the menu
When you choose the color option it prints color & black
If you choose the black option, it prints everything in black.
Some software overrides it.
Please go into Word, Excel, Notepad etc and check the Printer Preferences are set to color not black.
Hope this will work for you.
Please give a rating.

Cheers

You can go into the properties of the printer, and set it up to print everything in black only. This is the only way to FORCE the machine to use black ink for everything. The drawback to this, is that when you want to print something in color you will have to go back into your printer's properties and uncheck the black only option.
