Welcome to Fixya !

I assume that the printer is set to print in grey scale as below. follow the same procedure to change it to colour mode. If its still priniting in the Grey scale mode, Then please check the ink level in the printer.

Print in grayscale
To print in grayscale
1. Open the Printer Properties dialog box.
2. Click the Color tab.
3. Click Print In Grayscale.
4. In the Print In Grayscale drop-down list, select an option.
5. Select any other print settings that you want, and then click OK.

How do I print when I have only black ink?


Depending on the printer you have, some printers will not work without the color ink installed, even if you only want to print black. In most cases printing in greyscale will actually use more ink as the printer will mix colors to make shades of grey. Look for a driver settting of black only, but likley you will have to shell out for color cartridges.

Xerox 4150 my paper is a light shade of grey, what can it be thank you


Giacomos,

Is the paper a shade of grey with no image? or is there an image with a grey background?
If there is a image with a grey background you should try a new toner module. If that doesn't resolve the issue, clean the xerographic drum, make 10 blank copies, if the cleaning doesn't resolve the issue than install a new xerographic module.

Hope this help.

My Xerox 8400 is printing the wrong colors. Where it's red, it's printing a brown shade and where it should be grey, it's printing green. My logo is grey and red and it's printing all grey, but not the...


Try printing a light stripes test page (Troubleshooting, print quality problems, troubleshooting print quality page).

If you do not appear to have many missing jets but the colours are all just wrong it may be that the ink has gone stale. Run a couple of head cleans and you should see the colours start to improve. If it is getting better, all you can do is keep running head cleans until you have replenished all the ink in the printhead well.

This problem is common in situations where a lot of black and white printing is done, with very little colour.
Alternatively, it could be that your wiper/cleaning blade is not cleaning the head properly and is smearing the different coloured inks across the head, or possibly that your printhead is leaking colours but I think the first solution should solve your problem.
Hope this helps.

Samsung CLP-300 Printer not printing black well


You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning. It's best to do this each time you install a new cartridge. get more information and help from here .

No black ink printing


This is a guess but from what I have read I would say bad printhead, Kodak and a batch made in usa plant that got too hot in processing thus are faulty. Contact Kodak and go thru a few test with them and they will ship you out a new printhead, new ink tanks by overnight air and FREE of charge.

OKI c5100 Printing GREY instead of BLACK.


Not able to print a status page. Tried holding down menu 5 sec and no output. I searched the menu and am not able to find how to print status page. I did print out a demo page and the black is great but when i print out text (like the entire menu map) the black is grey. Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Greyscale printing


You may well be on the right track Certainly nothing to do with the printer as such It will only squirt the inks it is told to. So check the printer software[drivers] for starters- Is it possible you have the latest -check makers web site. This may also apply to your graphics card/image editor. Do ensure all the latest[current drivers and patches] are loaded. For example I Paint Shop Pro- Coral will sent updates from time to time some of which seem to be almost as big as the original program. If I have occasion to reinstall or repair the prog- I must always remember to reload the updates.
