Panasonic Printer prints wrong colour. The documents have grey letters, but the printer prints them black!


It is possible that printer setting is set to print in black and white instead of color. You will only be able to see the gray color when printer is set to print in color.
Assuming you are using windows 7 go to Devices and printers, right click on your printer, go to properties and change the settings.

For any further clarification feel free to revert.

My Dell 1320c Colour Laser Printer prints black as grey. How can I get it to print black?


If you have an extra black toner cartridge, try installing that and see if it fixes the problem. If it doesn't make sure Toner Save Mode is off (in the print driver, under Preferences). If your copies still come out gray instead of black, you may need to replace the Print Head Unit (PHD).

It prints gray instead of black. I set it to econo print and even after changing the setting to no econo, it still prints gray.


Maybe your toner cartridge is bad. Or the transfer roller might be very dirty.
When was the last time your poor printer had a maintenance kit installed?

Document copied in black & white prints


Check Printer Settings in computer for Resolution. if its print resolution is low then it will print very light gray.

Check Toner / Ink Cartridges for ink also.

To check resolution go to printer Properties by right clicking printer (from Control Panel>> Printer and Faxes) .

Black is printing gray


Has your printer defaulted to 'draft' printing? That's where grey printing seems to come from.

Canon MX310 - print is gray instead black. How to fix it.


I wish someone would REALLY solve this, but I've found two (time-consuming!) workarounds:

1) Despite using plain paper, tell it you're using "Matte Photo Paper" (this is necessary in order to...) then set the print quality to the next-to-highest level (default is middle of five quality levels). The doc will print in black as it should, not grey.

2) Instead of the above, use the printer dialogue option to print to a PDF file; then open the pdf and print it. It will print in black, not grey!

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Print coming out gray even with brand new HP cartridge


either it could be set in the printer properties to print in gray scale or it could be the lens of the printer that needs replacement as if the lens go weak the prints come out very light.

Prints grey not black


I solved this problem but probably not what the printer manufacturer would recommend! The reason you are just getting grey is that the black ink cartridge is either empty or dried out from non use and only the color cartridge is working. I had the same problem after being away for 5 months. I put the printer cartridge in a bowl of warm water to disolve the dried out ink on the print pad. I dried off the cartridge with a soft cloth and then it worked perfectly.
