Hi
This is a problem which is seen with any printer if the color cartridge is not installed correctly or has a bad print head or is over and needs a refill. The printer mixes color for gray scale. So both of the things you are trying to do involve the color cartridge. First make sure the clear tape is off the cartridge heads and that it is installed correctly. If it still won’t print return the cartridge.
Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

My color laserjet 2025 won't print color


If you print the demo page from the menus is that in color? If it is then it is possible that you have a black and white only printer driver installed or your driver is defaulted to black and white only. It is also possible that you have one color empty which stops color printing but often allows black and white printing to continue.

Is there any way to disable the color cartridge in my HP 930c? I want to print only in black.


Under your printer preferences there is a way to print gray scale. SO even if your image is in color, it will print black and white. Every printer interface is different, but when you go to print, there's usually a properties or setting button that will bring you to another page from the initial print menu. here is where you would choose gray scale.

If you try for black with only a color cartridge, it'll come out a dark green or blue color. Or on some cases, it will tell you it's out of black and you can't print. Most HP printers need at both cartridges in the printer for it to print.

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

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.

No black when printing color


Dear Sir,

You are getting black lines in green color,and apperence of parallel light and dark lines because your colour catridge is almost empty.So solution is replace the catridge and take a printout. There is no proplem with a printer. i think it solves your problem.


good luck

Can't print and when i did got green color


Check the level of your black ink. Double click on your printer icon. This should bring up Dell solution center. Click maintenance and it show the level of your black and color ink. If it appears you have black ink you might try clicking on your menu file, print click on preferences, check print black and white only. If you don't get a printed page. You're for sure out of black ink.
If you get a black printed copy, Double click on your printer icon, click on the maintenance tool to clean and test nozzles.

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.
