Re: Do not scan black color

When scanning small or very dark images, its a good idea to place the item to be scanned on the glass, then place 8.5x11 white paper over the top of it.
This gives the scan software "edges" that it can recognize, and once scanned the image can be "cropped" to remove the white from its border.
This has worked on all (4) the different brands I use.

My printer is not printing black ink, only in color. black ink cartridge is new. model #A940, service tag 5D53Z31, express service code, 11678555485. can you help?

Try this:
Go to Google Maps, select one and print it out. Does black work then? (On mine it does)
If you try to print an e-mail with both color and black fonts, are the black ones missing from the print? (On mine, the black letters are missing)
How about a scan which contains both color and black features? (Again, both black and color works for me)
And finally, if you scan an all-black font document after hitting "", you get nothing....but do the same thing after selecting "copy...color"...and it'll print the black.
I'm sorry I haven't found the answer as yet, but maybe if you try some of these little experiments I did this morning, then it'll catch someone's eye and we'll both have a solution (which may cost more than a new printer!

Scan Color document by Toshiba E-Studio 45

E-studio 45 or E4500 is a black and white copier. Hence, it can only scan original document to black and white only. There are some copiers which have the color scan capability but not this one.

Blurry Scanning/Copying

Are you scanning both black and white and color the same way? The ADF (automatic document feeder) uses a different scanning area than when you place the document on the scanning glass. If you open the scanner cover, look to the left of the main scanner glass to the narrow strip used for the ADF. Make sure this narrow strip is clean -- no ink or white-out or scratches. This can make your copies look dirty or smudged.

Copier feature (Black or Color) only produces a Black page

I beleive you are not able to make a color copy, once try to scan from the computer or all-in-one to check whether the scanner mechanism is working properly or not, if the scan comes out fine then remove the color cartridge and clean the copper contacts of the cartridge with soft cotton cloth and also check the ink level of the cartridge, if the issue persists replace the color cartridge and if even the scan does not comes out good then there is an issue with the scanner mechanism.
