Re: double-vision printing

Your printer heads are incredibly dirty and need to be cleaned. Buy inexpensive G & G ink cartridges (Printer is a good source), and don't be afraid to keep cleaning. If it shows no signs of clearing up after 15-20 cleaning cycles, then you'll need to disassemble the printer to try it manually.

The printing speed slowed to a snail pace. I pressed Setup, 2, and then 6 to print a self-test report. I got a a "cartridge error" message. Then I removed both cartridges and cleaned them. Still...

This is caused by the failure of one of your cartridges. Remove the black cartridge and print a test page. Does the printer print at normal speed? Is so the black cartridge was the issue and should be replaced. If not then put the black cartridge back in and remove the color cartridge and print test page. If the printer now prints normal speed the color cartridge was at fault and needs to be replaced.

How do I program the printer to only print in blck/white

Any default (or normally used) settings, can be made by changing the Printing Preferences for that specific printer.

1) Find the printer...ex: [Start]--> [Settings]--> [Printers and Faxes]...then [right-click] on the printer name/icon.

2) The pop-up menu that appears should list an option to select called, "Printing Preferences".

3) Under the [Paper/Quality] TAB, you can select "Black and White" (instead of the normally default, "Color").

4) Make sure to click OK, and that printer should (by default/ normal) print in B/W now.
--- you can change this to "Color" in Print Setup...but it is temporary for that printing job, and should revert to it's default state, afterwards.---
-Printing Preferences- is where any changes you make will become the Normally used setup.
.Hope this helps

New tri-color cartridge has a problem. I can't see what.

I have an HP Photsmart C4100 printer. I purchased remanufactured ink cartridges (both black and tri-colored) from Vivasmart. The black one works fine, but when I installed the tri-color, I got an error message that says "Print cartridge problem" The following print cartridge has a problem:
And I can't print. The screen on my printer says "Remove and check color cartridge." I have done this several times and it still won't print. I have turned off the power, removed the cartridges, and unplugged the unit, but it still didn't help. Any suggestions?

Double vision on color only

I like the Tech Most likely did a Color Configuration , Go into the Menu and Use the Arrow keys to scroll and look for " Color Calibration " run the test make sure you don't have " Bleeding" this is a term used by Color Tech's like myself to describe that Color are mixing together which is causing your current problem.

Do calibration First.

Double vision

If you are printing color and you have color blurring like streaks. it mean the registration of the colors are off. Usually using the internal cleaning function from the panel will clear this up. You should restart the copier as well. If it continues check all the feed rollers.

Printing in one direction only

Your printers alignment is out that is why it prints only in one direction.
