Am I able to print on my LC61 with just black ink?


Most printers require the tiniest bit of color to print in black to keep the color jets from drying out.

If your color cartridges are fine, and you're only asking about settings, then, when you have a document positioned to print, left click one in the window you want to print, hold down the CTRL key and press P

You'enter the printer window

Select "Preferences"
Then "Black and White"
then "Print only from black cartridge"

Ciao,

My HP 3845 lately prints grey instead of black, in 'Normal' as well as in 'Best' modes. Any idea why this could be?


Go to Control panel
select printers
right click on your printer
select PRINTING PREFERENCES
Then on the next new window that opens up (the tab should default to PAPER/QUALITY) click on the LAST tab COLOR
Here you can see if maybe somehow your PRINT IN GRAYSCALE box is checked-uncheck it to correct your problem-click on OK at bottom to save the setting

Reply back if this does not correct it.

Hope this helps.

Printer is not printing black but in a pinkish color


Most printers use the colour cartridge to make black, instead of the black cartridge. When you go to print a black and white document, on the box where you choose the number of pages to print, click properties, and locate the colour settings. There will be two options: Colour/Black and White-with a sub option of high quality or black only. Select Black only. The printer will now only use the black ink.

This has to do with the document printing properties. When you are ready to print a document, choose properties and make sure you go through the printer settings under that software.
The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

Can the copy setting be defaulted to black and white document?


You can set it to B+W but it will revert to its default setting the next time you print.

Problems with greyscale printing as colour on the Canon CLC3220


From whatever software you are printing, you will need to select the properties or features. In Pagemaker, it was features, but most other programs I now see it under properties for the 3220 on the print screen. You will need to find where it gives you the options for color. They should be color, greyscale or black & white. The default is generally color. Generally the 3220 will know if it is not a color document and print the black and white as a greyscale, but sometimes you have to force it.

If you are printing crop marks and color bars, then your document is recognized as color even though it may not be.

Finally, some programs use a black that is actuall 100% of CMY & K. If you are using InDesign and select registration as your black, instead of the plain black, then you document is recognized as color.
The same holds true if you select a pantone grey which is created from several colors. So also make sure that your document is truly greyscale and or that you tell the copier to print in greyscale.

GREEN is a combination of Cyan and Yellow, although i would assume that all other colors are working fine if you can find a printing properties, and reduce the amount of cyan it would help you a bit until you have achieved your desired result.

otherwise you may have to recalibrate your printer to suit a perfect color matching

Printer print blue instead of black


I have the same problem with my ip 5200, when printing a document in plain black.. I spoke to canon support and they suggested to save the .doc document as a txt file before printing. It works. Not too sure if this uses any colour ink to produce the black.

You can also set the printer on grayscale. However, the printer uses the colour ink to produce black.... hence printing in black & white becomes rather expensive.

If anyone has drivers to fix this problem please let me know...
