GO TO MAINTANANCE SECTION IN THE MENU TRY TO TAKE SELF TEST PRINT.
IF IT COMES THEN GO TO NEXT STEP AND TRY TO CHECK THE INK LEVEL OF THE CATRIDGES IF THE INK LEVEL IS LOW DO REPLACE WITH THE GENUINE CATRIDGE ITSELF.

Im trying to print a black and white document but it wont let me print because my color cartridge is missing


The Lexmark X2600 requires both cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing, even if your printing in "black and white". To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink. , Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality issues.

Both of my ink cartridges are shown full, but only black ink prints. How can i fix this issue?


May be you have enabled Black & White printing.
You can open the printer settings and check this.
If its not possible, select 'Printers and Faxes' from start menu, right-click your printer and select 'Properties'.
Click 'Printing Preferences' and, if the Black & White' setting is selected, select 'Color'.
Click 'OK'.
Click the 'Advanced' tab and click 'Printing Defaults' and here also select 'Color'.
Click 'OK' and again click 'OK' to close the property window.
Now try printing a color document.
If you succeed, consider voting my solution.

My printer will not print in color, black/white only. Color cartridge is new and I have tried various solutions as per troubleshooting guide.I am at a loss as to myn problem.


Assuming the colour cartridge is good, and the printer see's it ok. The only other part to check is the printer settings. Ensure that the printer does not have the "greyscale printing" box checked.

Start - Printers & Faxes - Printers - Preferences - Print settings.

How to load the ink cartridge



Replacing the print cartridges
  1. Make sure the HP all-in-one is on. WARNING: If the HP all-in-one is off when the print-carriage access door is lifted to access the print cartridges, the HP all-in-one will not release the cartridges for changing. Damage may occur to the HP all-in-one if the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them.
  2. Open the print-carriage access door by lifting from the front center of the device, until the door locks into place. The print carriage is on the far right side of the HP all-in-one. c00228292.jpg 1 - Print carriage access door 2 - Print carriage
  3. When the print carriage is idle and silent, press down on the end of each cartridge to snap it out of the carriage. If replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. If replacing the black or photo cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. c00228293.jpg 1 - Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge 2 - Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print
  4. Gently pull the print cartridge toward you, out of its slot.
  5. If removing the black print cartridge to install the photo or gray photo print cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector.
  6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections. c00228294.jpg 1 - Copper-colored contacts 2 - Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing) 3 - Ink nozzles under tape c00228295.jpg
  7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Push the print cartridge forward until it clicks into place. If the print cartridge you are installing has a white triangle on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the left. The label for the slot is green with a solid white triangle on it. If the print cartridge you are installing has a white square or a white pentagon on its label, slide the print cartridge into the slot on the right. The label for the slot is black with a solid white square and a solid white pentagon on it. c00228296.jpg
  8. Close the print-carriage access door. c00228297.jpg

HP Deskjet, Set to Black & White; but still prints with color!


Bronze, hopefully this is a logical issue: Assuming you're on WinXP > Go to Start>Control Panels>Printers (and faxes).
Find the printer in question in the list (maybe there's only one or 2 listed) and 'Right-click' on the icon > go down to "Printing Preferences" (about second/third down the list).
In here you will be able to set the printers default settings. I'm not 100% familiar with HPs printing dialog, but there maybe a setting there for either 'Black & White' and 'Grayscale' (albeit it should be greyscale, anyway...) if you choose black and white your printing will not have any mid-tone, so if there's a choise, choose 'Grayscale'.
You can set other features here which will become the new default each time you go to print something - personally I set to 'Draft' or 'Fast Draft' mode by default, that way when I just print out rubbish, I am saving "lots" of ink and if I want something in good quality, I change it at time of printing.
Now, there are some programs and files that "remember" you last print settings, so if you've used a colour print setting previously, that file may still pring in colour, even though the new defaults are mono (black & white). So, print using the new defaults and save the file when finished. It's unlikely the case with OpenOffice, but, I don't know. We'll tackle that as we get to it.
So, if that has not cured the problem, please let me know.

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**

My ip90 Canon printer only prints in purple


Try selecting an option in the printing properties to print in grayscale or black and white (you usually only have either one or the other). This will utilise ONLY the black cartridge, the color will remain dormant which should make your prints come out in black and white - if not, your black cartridge, or the space between the bottom of the black cartridge and the paper is contaminated with color ink. Good luck!

Black cartridge not printing


Three things peggye: one you have bought a dud cartridge. It happens. Two: you did may not have removed all the protective tape or it is not a comapatable cartridge by mistake. If tow is not the issue, try 3 first before resorting to 1. Three: your printheads are blocked for black ink. Manually clean with proper cleaning solution, using cotton buds, right doen where cartrisge sits, and use a baby wipe (unscented to press firmly on bottom of cartridge where ink comes out. Put it back in. Print now. Post back if no good. Cheers, lilacgerry

No color printing with lexmark x4270


How may times did you use the printer to print befor this happened? If you used it a lot then you may need to buy more ink. My printer showed full ink and it turned out that they were empty.
