This could be caused by a worn OPC drum, Transfer belt or poor high voltage output.

I would suggest the drum first.

Even though my black cartridge is full, my black and white documents are so light they are unreadable. My color cartridges are close to being empty. Can this be the cause?


printers use all cartridges to get the correct colour even black
best get a new colour cartridge then realign the printer with a test pattern

My canon MP145 three-in-one printer cannot print because the coloured ink has finished. How can i continue to print using black ink only?


Hi joyce2020
Some printers do print even if one cartridge is empty.
This is what you have to do. Goto the print setting page. you will find check boxes for Print in Color OR Black& White.
Usually, the color box is checked. When you check the box for color, you can print in black and white as well provided the text is written in B&W. If you check the B&W, the printer will print everything in black including color text and graphics.

Hope this will work for you.
Good Luck

Print keeps fading, even though using new ink


check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

Printer will not print in color


To select a specific document to print in color, open the document, Photo, etc, to print, select "print", then select "printing preferences" in the dialog box, select "color". This will print that specific document in color, but the setting will default back to B&W
Now, just FYI,
You absolutely need to set the default color, in your printing preferences - usually to Black and white -to save extra costs. The default setting is ALWAYS color when the driver is installed.. so even if you are printing a word document, the printer will "make" black out of the other colors, thus costing a lot of extra $$. Your settting has apparently been changed appropriately.
This is how it's set the default color should you ever want to change it, "right click" your printer icon in "Printers and faxes" select properties, select "printing preferences", and you will see, in the bottom left corner, the color selector, select "B&W", then select "apply", and close your dialog box. EVERYTHING will now print in B&W, unless you select otherwise, or vice versa if you swith it to color.
I hope that clears it up. Please rate my response

C4200 Not printing black ink, which is new


Its purely your CATRIDGE problem...so please open up your printer and check for the two small black colored boxes..in that you can easily identify the B/W one....so if its lighter in weight compared to that of coloured one....you need to refill it or buy a new catridge......THIS is the only solution to this problem..

I just installed a Lexmark 2500. It came with an ink cartridge (color) I purchased a black cartridge and installed it but it does not seem to be working. How do you darken the ink on this printer. It seems...


start
control panel
printer and fax
right click your printer, choose properties
go tab by tab and look for print quality and then try
something like this
choose econo mode, or ink saving mode to start.

try to print in grayscale mode and use only the black ink cartridge.

that should be your new default, and you don~t have to change it from winthin other programs

COLOR NOT VIVID


The DeskJet 940c is not really the highest quality printer out there on the market. However, having said that, the printer is still capable of producing decent quality printouts. You might play with your printer settings for print intensity, lightness, ink volume.
