How do i print in colour, seems to have been set to b&w only


You can adjust these settings on a per print basis, but to correct it for color for every print:

These instructions vary depending on whether you are running Windows XP vs Vista or 7, but they are somewhat the same.

XP

Go to Control Panel > Printers

Right-click on your Epson printer, choose "Properties"

Look for color versus grayscale setting

Vista or 7
Go to Control Panel > Devices & Printers

Right-click on your Epson printer, choose "Printer Properties"

Look for color versus grayscale setting

I want to print in just back and white, but my printer wont do it.


In order to print in Black and White using grayscale, you will need to adjust the printing preferences within the driver. To change the printer properties complete the following steps:


1. Open the Printers Folder:


  • Windows 2000: Click Start => Settings => Printers.


  • Windows XP: Click Start => Printers and Faxes.


  • Windows Vista: Click the Start button => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers.


  • Windows 7: Click the Start button => Devices and Printers.


2. Right click on the Brother printer driver and left click Printing Preferences.


3. Click the Advanced tab.


4. Select Grayscale.


5. Click APPLY => OK. Your printer will now print in grayscale.

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

HP L7700 officejet printer leaves streaks on black ink lines only. Have cleaned heads repeatedly, changed black and color cartridges - nothing works.


Print in grayscale (black area streaking only) If the streaks are in a black area of a black and white printout, change to grayscale printing.
NOTE: This step does not apply to color printouts.
  1. In the application you are printing from, click File , and then click Print .
  2. Make sure the printer is selected and click Properties .
  3. Click the Color tab, and select Print Grayscale and High Quality .

Can't print in color on my Canon printer


If you go here you can download or view a manual for your printer, with detailed instructions on changing the print cartridge settings in windows or mac.
If you go here, you'll be taken to the home support page for your printer, where you can enter a search for "print in color", and detailed instructions will follow.
You go to control panel>printers>print preferences> and uncheck the grayscale printing and set the color to auto.
Issue: Image prints black and white instead of color....See below.
Solution: Uncheck Grayscale Printing checkbox (Windows)

Unchecking Grayscale Printing Follow the steps below to change the Grayscale Printing option:
  1. On the Windows desktop, click 'Start', point to 'Settings', then click 'Printers' (Windows XP: On the Start menu, click 'Printers and Faxes').

    For Windows Vista: Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
  2. Windows 2000/XP/Vista: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Printing Preferences'. Windows 98/Me: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Properties'.

  3. On the Main tab, click on the 'Grayscale Printing' check-box to remove the check-mark.

  4. Click the 'OK' button to save the setting.

Color toner used up even though I selected grayscale


Selecting grayscale only will also make use of your color. when u select grayscale, look under the print options and select black cartridge only and for more economic printing, use fast draft or draft printing.

In the printing preferences you need to select Black and white.

1. open the document you want to print
2. click file
3. click print
4. select printer from list, then click on preferences
5. look around the pages.

In Color tab I found a print in Grayscale - this setting will print the document in black and white colors, the pages may be diffrent on diffrent printers. look for black and white setting or Grayscale.

picture: printing preferences, color page on a hp printer, select grayscale with black cartridge only.

Cant print in colour


Not sure if you are using XP or Vista. I'm speaking from Vista but XP should apply, too.

1. You could have the 'Print in Grayscale' box checked. It is under Printing preferences > Color.
2. Your color cartridge may be empty. Print a test page to make sure.
3. Make sure print quality is Normal or Best.
4. There is a "Print all text as Black" in the Advanced tab. Make sure it is Disabled.
