The specific program that is needed is the Job Accounting SERVER software. Once you install that, open it, add your printer (I used "Specify IP address, chose TCP/IP, then typed in the address.")

Once it showed up on the right side, I double clicked the printer. On the dialog that showed up I clicked the "User" tab, then double clicked the user that showed up.

On the third dialog box, I went to the "Use Restrictions" tab, then made sure the "Disable Color Printing" option was unchecked. Unquote

Oki appear to only have made a B6100 model printer, this is actually classed as a workgroup mono printer and only prints in black and white, It is not a colour printer here in the UK. I think the US may have this as a C6100 and I think it is similar to the 5000 series of printers. the user manual can be found at . I would print a Menu Map and check the settings and also check the driver setting is not set to B/W printing.

How do you change the settings on a HP C6100 Printer to print in black ink only.

You can find the settings in the print driver software. Go into your Control Panel and right click on the C6100 in the Printers & Faxes section. Choose Properties, and go to either the Color Management or Advanced tabs. You should see an option somewhere for printing in Monochrome or Color -- select Monochrome (or it might say Grayscale) and save the change.

It only prints black and white

Somebody must have followed the instructions:

Print Only in Black and White:
• Click Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes.
• Left click on Laser to highlight.
• Click File > Printing Preferences.
• Click on the Color tab.
• Click on the circle by Grayscale to move the bullet to that selection.
• Click Apply and OK.

to switch from "colour" printing to "black".

So, "unclick" the 'Grayscale' setting.

Radio Shack Oki C6100 does not print color... only greyscale. Solution on your site might work on another operating system, but the suggested fix is to download a utility called "English Job Accounting...

I'm not familiar with this printer, but my Samsung colour laser has an option in the driver for choosing 'color' or 'grayscale' - make sure it's not something as basic as that for starters.

My new Oki C6100N won't print in color without some sort of code. Do have have the code know what it is? Thanks in advance and we will repay you.

My new Oki C6100 bought from Radio Shack will not print color, Radioshack wrote firmware so only managers could print in color. Need firmware to write over RadioShack firmware.

We have recently bought a second hand OKI C5200 Colour Laser Printer and even though the black and white print seems to be great the clour is coming out with coloured streaks, what would you recommend?

One or more of the drums may be defective. Swap the black with another color and print a document. If that color printed the charectors ok, then continue the test with the other drums each taking a turn in the Black drum position until you find the bad drum.

I cannot print in color even though I can print

What has changed?

Is it possible that the color cartridge is empty?

Check the driver properties and make sure that the driver hasn't been changed to "Monochrome", "Grayscale" or Black and White.
