Grayscale images printing sepia

I have some greyscale images I want to print (pencil drawings) . They come out sepia whatever paper I use with and without the 'greyscale' ticked. The only time they come out fine is using 'plain paper' with the 'greyscale' box ticked. I use compatible inks for canon pixma ip4500

SOURCE: Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across

try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

SOURCE: i have a canon pixma 610 all my grayscale prints

You are either low on one of the black inks or the ink you are using is of a low quality. If neither of those it could be a clogged print head or a driver issue. My money is on the ink though.

SOURCE: my canon iP4500 will not

If you set Plain paper with Greyscale printing, only the black Pigment tank is used.
If you set any other paper type, only the 4 Dye tanks are used - even if set to Greyscale.

Canon Printer MP250 doesn't want to keep the grayscale ONLY setting.many attempts to use only black ink but it keeps on setting color ink by default. SB001


If you are changing to greyscale before you print, it will only stay there for that print job. You need to go to the printer through the control panel - devices - printer and change it to greyscale. It should stay that way then.

Prints blacks fine, not printing grayscale.


Hi:

The answer to your question is very simple. If your document has a greyscale area, it is a color document and needs a color printer to print.

Greyscale is not light black printing, it is color in layers to give the visual impression of light black or grey.

Greyscale printing is only printable in a color printer, and does not use any black ink in its reproduction.

Sorry.

How do I print in grayscale.I do not get the option in print menu


With respect to color usage during greyscale printing: Unfortunately, with many of the newer inkjet printer models & printer drivers, printing in greyscale actually consumes more color ink than normal draft printing. If you wish to save on color ink, it is suggested to do one of the following as available in your specific printer driver/software:
    -Print in Normal - Draft mode (or super draft if available), plain paper.
    -Print in Black & White mode only* - Draft mode on plain paper (typically this is the best way to save on ink/printing costs).
    -For internet page printing, print using CleanPrint (3rd party software for printing most internet-based content from all major internet browsers. NOTE: not affiliated with Inkjet411): http://www.formatdynamics.com/cleanprint-4-0/
    -Keep printer on at all times; power up cycles typically consume large amounts of ink (per Consumer Reports, Aug 2013 issue).

    * Most printer models will still consume a small percentage of color ink due to normal ink/printer maintenance, such as between job 'spitting'. The purpose is to ensure the printhead is maintained to avoid clogging.

    Regarding HP 74, 75, 74XL or 75XL repurchase or ink cartridge refilling, if you unable to find a retail / refill store close to you and you are trying to cut ink costs, may we suggest you try a remanufactured ink cartridge from http://www.inkplicity.com/ as their ink cartridges typically have the lowest cost in the USA, have a high reliability rating, come with a 1-year warranty and provide free shipping for all orders above $20 (available to US residents only).

While printing in grayscale mode it is using color cartridges. It should use onli main black 520.


Open the printer "print options" or "Print Settings" and select the "Black ink only". I am not very sure about your model, but when you carefully check, you'll see "print in color" "Print in greyscale" it should be somewhere below the "print in greyscale". Hope this helps. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

I want to set the default on my Dell 1320c printer to grayscale


Should be an option in the printer driver to do this.

Try

Printing preferences

and either Colour or Paper/Quality should have an option to print in Greyscale or Colour

Problem: Only printing Black/Greyscale


The printer software has probably been set to print in grayscale. Follow the steps below to check this setting:
  1. In the software application being printed from, click File , then Print . The Print dialog opens.
  2. Make sure the correct printer is selected, then click Preferences . The printer Preferences dialog opens.
  3. Select the Color tab, then make sure that Print in grayscale is not selected

Please let me know if still you cant print color. Its intresting. :)
