In the menu options on the printer screen the will be one that says "maintenance" in that menu there will be another that says "non-dell toner" set your printer in the non-dell toner mode. this will deactivate the toner level reading and allow you to print what ever you want.

Go to FILE>PRINT..>then highlight the 5110 printer incase you have any other printers installed. Then below the printer you will see a "PREFERECES " box. Open that box and and you will get the printing prefereces menus. There should be four tabs the output tab or print quelity should give you the option to print color or black and white. Good luck.

Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

    MJ,



    Please disregard my initial answer, it does not apply to your question.



    You can try going into the printer properties and selecting "Gray Scale" printing only. That may not help you because the POST of the printer checks the ink levels and may not allow your printer to proceed until the error condition is cleared.

My Samsung CLX-3180 printer is only printing in Black and white


The printer might be out of one of the colors of toner. Most color laser printers will revert to black and white when either the cyan, magenta, or yellow toners run out. Check to see if any are empty or near empty. Also check the settings on the printer and your computer to make sure that it is set to print in color.

My Ricoh SP 232sf wont print at all because the K toner is out of toner but it has plenty of color. Can I force it to print somehow?


Unfortunately, no, the printer won't print even in color if the black toner is empty. The black drum rotates whether the copier is printing in black & white or color, so if black is empty you can't print at all.

Need to use the printer machine in black and white as missing yellow toner waiting for it but machine is blocked and need urgently to print docs. Pls help me


Unfortunatley most printers will not allow you to print if one of the colours are missing or empty.and so you will need the yellow toner to be replaced before you can print. there is a way that sometimes works and that is to remove the toner cartrige and give it a good shake this evenly distributes the toner inside and sometimes make the printer think it has enough toner and allows you to print. As I said this only works sometimes and is not a perfect solution

Hi! I am getting a "replace toner yellow" error message. The orange lightning bolt error light is on too. Do I need to replace the yellow toner to print in black and white or is there a different error...


Specifically on the Magicolor 5430DL you can print when a cartridge is empty, but this is disabled by default. To enable printing even with a toner cartridge empty.Press the Menu Button, then press the right button until the ENGINE menu appears and press the select button.Next press the right button until TONER appears and press SelectOnce in the Toner Menu the first option should be "EMPTY" if not press the right button until you see "EMPTY" and press Select.There are two options, the default is "STOP" pressing the right button once should change from STOP to CONTINUE.While the display reads "CONTINUE" press Select.You should see the message "CONTINUE is selected"You can now print even when one or more cartridges are empty. However, the lack of the cartridge's color will be noticed in any print jobs calling for that color... (Obviously)

My Konica Minolta MC2300DL will not print. It is


You can change the 2300's menu setting to ignore empty toner cartridges and keep printing. There are 2 steps:

Step 1:

Press Menu/Select, then "right arrow" until you see ENGINE. Press Menu/Select again and then "right arrow" until you see TONER EMPTY. Press Menu/Select and you'll see STOP. Press "right arrow" once to change to CONTINUE. Press Menu/Select.

Step 2:

Press "right arrow" until you see AUTO CONTINUE. If set to ON, press the "Cancel" button and you're ready to print. If set to OFF, press Menu/Select, then right arrow to change to ON, then Menu/Select to enter. It will say "ON IS SELECTED." Then press the "Cancel" button and you're ready to print.

Yellow toner empty


You will need to use the menu on the printer itself to change a setting Press "Menu Select" button to get the menu function Use the right arrow twice to select "Engine", then press the down arrow to the "Replace Toner" menu Press the right arrow for the "Toner Empty" menu Press the down arrow to get the Toner Empty settings Press the right arrow to change the Toner Empty setting to "Continue" Press the "Menu Select" button to confirm the setting. You should be able to print, you just won't have any yellow toner. When you get your toner cartridge, follow these instructions to reset the 'Toner Empty' setting to Stop so you will know when a toner is out.
