Setting the font type color in a Microsoft Office Word document to black will ensure that the document prints the text in black. However, if there are images, graphics or photographs within the document, they will more than likely print in color or hued colors similar to black. To ensure that the entire document prints solely in black ink, you must set the color settings on your individual printer to black-and-white
Instructions: 1.Click "File" and then "Print." To open the print dialogue box using keyboard commands, press "CTRL" and "P" simultaneously. 2.Select the printer you are using at the top of the dialogue box under "Printer" and "Name." 3.Click the "Properties" button next to the selected printer. The dialogue box that appears is different for all users, as it depends on the type of printer being used. 4.Click on a tab, button or selection box indicating "Color." Most options include high-quality color, grayscale and black cartridge only. Choosing grayscale will print the document using various shades of gray and other tones such as blue or green that match the actual hues in the document visible on the screen. A photo or picture that may look black or gray could actually have blue undertones. To print purely in black and white with no undertones, you must select either "black cartridge" or "black and white only." 5.Select "OK" to return to the Microsoft Word printer dialogue box. Press the "Print" button to print the black-and-white document.
Go to Control panel
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
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.
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.
Okay if your using windows OS go to control panel , then printer and fax icon open it you will see Lexmark printer series listed right click on it and go to printing preference tab ,uncheck print all documents in black and white click okay and then try to print....
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
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...
