    It will print in black & color both. Sometimes I want black only and if there is color anyplace on the page it will print it. Thanks for the input.

    Although I replaced both ink cartridges, I cannot 'select' black ink. Even when I press Black Ink, the Color Ink light remains lit. I want to reserve

    the more expensive color cartridge for specific color printing. Also, the

    Printer Box in the lower right hand of my screen insists the black ink is

    running low. If I had installed it incorrectly, wouldn't I have been notified?

    I also get a USB002 message. How do I align printer heads?

    Any help would be appreciated. I am very new to all this and feel quite

    pathetic. Thanks for your attention. Tresstine

You can only print in BW or Color.

Even when printing in monochrome color ink goes down


Depending on what you print, these printers will print black by combining all three colors, they also use some color every time the printer calibrates. If you print mostly black and white you are better off getting a monochrome only printer.

My printer says E 5


Try reseating the ink cartridges. The error references to either reseating or refilling the ink cartridges.
Since you have mentioned that it worked before with only black cartridge, try reseating both and check.

Epson 830u Printer Red light stays on even with new ink


I realised that I had to replace both the ink cartridges even though I only wanted to replace the black for it to work. Once I replaced both the black and colour cartridge the red light went off. Thanks

I have a cannon MP160 printer. Color ink button is flashing. The color ink cartridge is empty. I replaced the black ink cartridge and want to print in blank ink only. However, I can't get the color light...


try to go into the software for the printer and find a rest ink cartridge button. This will make it think it has a new one which wil let you print in black by selecting black print only

HP 932 RED LIGHT STAYS ON


The light you describe is the ink light.
When that light is blinking, try this.

Turn on the printer. Open the front cover and look at the carrier for the ink cartridges. There is a white arrow right above the latch for the color cartridge.
Once the carrier stops moving, the white arrow should be pointing to a symbol which represents the problem (the reason the light is blinking.) Examples are low ink black, low ink color, sick black ( replace ) , sick color ( replace ).

IF you have just replaced your black cartridge, you might need to replace your color cartridge too.
This printer will not work without both ink cartridges installed and full.
You cant print with a full black and an empty color cartridge unfortunately, even if you only want to print black.

Hope this helps!
