SOURCE: Greyscale Printing

Go into Printers, Properties, Printing Preferences, then Black Ink Only. If you make that the default, it will automatically print black ink with you click on the printer in the toolbar. If you want to print one document in color, click on File, Print, Properties, and set it for color for that one job only. The default of Black Ink should stay the same.

SOURCE: black ink does not print

i had the same problem. black stopped printing. i always used OFFICIAL HP cardridges, so this problem is not exclusive for refilled cardridges.

This solution (offered here) worked for me:
Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and the turn it back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate. Make sure you have new cartiges in the printer so that it can reset.

I wanted to stress that you should make sure that:
1) you keep the the buttons down untill it shuts off;
2) on restart you get a notification of service;
3) to turn it off again after service before you turn it on for actual use.

SOURCE: Want to print in color ink and not black ink.

These instructions are for Windows Vista users - I've never used XP to do this, but I'm sure it's similar.

Go to Control Panel/Printers and select the printer you want. Click "Select printing preferences" on the toolbar above. The options listed might be different for different printers (I haven't checked) but on my Dell printer I go to Advanced/More Options and under the "Complete-a-Print" section there is a checkbox labeled "Use color cartridge for all black printing." I imagine other printers have something similar. It comes out a dark grey/brown color.

Don't forget to uncheck it when you get more black ink!

I can't print in grayscale with my colour cartridges


The black ink cartridge is used to print in grey scale mode.

It is therefore not possible to print in grey scale using only colour ink cartridge.

My HP 3550 won't print black when it is out of a color.


restore the properties.... set as "print in grey scale" or "print color as b/w images"...

there is no necesary change all your documents as "watter ink" only change the print options to fade to black

Printer is only printing grayscale, need color, hp deskjet 6340


This is either because: 1. You only have black ink remaining and your tri-colour cartridge is empty or 2. In the printer driver settings you have selected either: Print Grey scale or Use black only.
I beleive your problem might be the last option.
To fix it :
1. Go to the printer driver (in vista go to: Start, Control panel, Printers, right click on your printer and select "printing preferences"). Now you are inside the printer driver. 2. go to the "color" tab. 3. Tehre you'll see if you have selected wither "Print in grey scale" and/or "Black only". 4. To ensure you get color again, de-select the"Print in grey scale" option.
Cheers, Ed

Want to print with black ink cartridge only


It is a little known fact that ink cartridges do have an expiry date, and it is sometimes possible that even if a printer reads full, that it has dried out and will not print. When you recieve a warning that your ink is too low you will simply be unable to print black ink after a certain point. Generaly if you want to print in only black you will have to do that when you print a document. For instance in IE when you go to file and then print you can select prefrences and select print in greyscale or black. hope this helps!
