Printing in black is no problem.

Depending on what Operating System you are using - you will need to select print in gray scale in the printing preferences menu.

Normally the printer will only print what is on the page as seen in the output of the application. You can select the pages you want to print by selecting either current page or page numbers, eg, 1-5 or 1, 2, 4 etc.

If you want to print only what you want on a page then you will need to cut and paste the bits into a new MS word document (provided the output of the application allows cut and paste). You can do this with MSWord pages and IE and PDF pages to an extent.

Epson Aculaser C1750N printing black


When a color printer prints all black, it means the printer is putting either just black on the page, or all colors which appear black. The first step is to figure out if it's just black, or all colors. You can print a half page by opening the printer during a print. Then look at the page to see if there is any color in it. Try rubbing some of the toner across the page to reveal colors.
If the problem is black only, then try replacing the black cartridge. If the black toner doesn't fix it, then it may the the black laser or control module.
The all colors are on the page, then you probably have a bad control module.

Is it possible that a print driver may have caused my printer to stop printing black


Try printing an internal print page like the configuration page. If the page is printed in black and white then there is a problem with the printer. If the page is printed in colour then the printer is fine and the problem is with the driver or the driver adjustments.The driver itself can not cause a permanent problem to the printer.

Hi. I need to make default setting to print grayscale. Kindly give me the steps. Thanks


Color/black mix
This item allows you to configure printer settings to optimize printer and cartridge performance for the printing environment. If the printer is primarily used for black printing (over two-thirds of the pages are black only), change the printer settings to MOSTLY BLACK PAGES.

Setting the color/black mix
1. Press Menu to enter the MENUS.
2. Press to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE.
3. Press to select CONFIGURE DEVICE.
4. Press to highlight SYSTEM SETUP.
5. Press to select SYSTEM SETUP.
6. Press to highlight COLOR/BLACK MIX.
7. Press to select COLOR/BLACK MIX.
8. Press or to select the desired option. (Select MOSTLY BLACK PAGES)
9. Press to select the option.
10. Press Menu.

Select MOSTLY BLACK PAGES if you print mostly monochrome print jobs, or a combination of color and monochrome print jobs.

In the printing preferences you need to select Black and white.

1. open the document you want to print
2. click file
3. click print
4. select printer from list, then click on preferences
5. look around the pages.

In Color tab I found a print in Grayscale - this setting will print the document in black and white colors, the pages may be diffrent on diffrent printers. look for black and white setting or Grayscale.

picture: printing preferences, color page on a hp printer, select grayscale with black cartridge only.
