Believe or not, a bit of color ink is require to make true black. However, from most application you can go in to the printer preferences and click the Color tab. Check the print in Grayscale and click the Black print only option. My instructs are based on an HP model printer. The preferences can be a little different between brands. But, you should have similar options. Check your printer's manual for more specifics.

I have a Kodak esp3 printer. I replaced the color


I have had exactly the same problem. I can't carry enough ink to it. Plus even more perplexing is the fact that it won't print b & w when the colour runs out and visa versa. I havent printed any colour stuff at all since replacing the colour cartridge last month and yet again it has run out. Advice / help siteuseless. If they spent as much effort with helping customers as they do with their useless junkmail then the servic would be better. Best advice steer clear of kodak printers !!!

I recently replaced the black ink cartridge and do not wish to use the colour cartridge. However, the printer still keeps flashing the critically low level of my colour cartridge and does not print.How can...


Many printers always use a small amount of each color even if you are only printing black, to prevent the color nozzles from drying out and getting clogged (and, it forces you to buy more ink, which is a profit center for printer manufacturers)

For this reason, some printers will not work if ANY of the cartridges are empty.

It should work again if you replace the color cartridge. Make sure to select "black ink only" or the option to print in black and white or grayscale to minimize color ink usage. It may still use a little, but that's OK.

HP C4500 ink consumption


Dear Sir,

Now a days all HP ink catridges available at low price that means ink quantity is also low.So if you print heavy coloured pages it will deffinately consumes more ink.So print in gray scale or black and white consumes low ink. Compare to gray scale,black and white printing consumes very low ink. So print in black and white is the better choice.

good luck
