Canon Printer MP250 doesn't want to keep the grayscale ONLY setting.many attempts to use only black ink but it keeps on setting color ink by default. SB001


If you are changing to greyscale before you print, it will only stay there for that print job. You need to go to the printer through the control panel - devices - printer and change it to greyscale. It should stay that way then.

Canon iP6600D printer keep printing in Blak ink only


1st option, set the default profile in the printer properties. if it doesnt work. this will change all the settings that you might missed to check to go back to factory setings. also, check if your color cartridge is ok and with enough ink and not dis abled
2nd option, run any 3rd party software that can fix some windows system files or something like that. try to scan pc for viruses
3rd option, reformat your pc. maybe windows files that allows your printer to work are having problems or corrupted, base on the thing that you mentioned that it goes back to the grayscale settings

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

My Mac wont print color to my HP printer. The color ink is full and my Dell prints fine to the printer


There is a setting in the print dialogue that allows you to set that the printer prints only in grayscale. There is a chance that you have that setting changed and it is printing in grayscale each time you print by default.

If you go here you can download or view a manual for your printer, with detailed instructions on changing the print cartridge settings in windows or mac.
If you go here, you'll be taken to the home support page for your printer, where you can enter a search for "print in color", and detailed instructions will follow.
You go to control panel>printers>print preferences> and uncheck the grayscale printing and set the color to auto.
Issue: Image prints black and white instead of color....See below.
Solution: Uncheck Grayscale Printing checkbox (Windows)

Unchecking Grayscale Printing Follow the steps below to change the Grayscale Printing option:
  1. On the Windows desktop, click 'Start', point to 'Settings', then click 'Printers' (Windows XP: On the Start menu, click 'Printers and Faxes').

    For Windows Vista: Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
  2. Windows 2000/XP/Vista: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Printing Preferences'. Windows 98/Me: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Properties'.

  3. On the Main tab, click on the 'Grayscale Printing' check-box to remove the check-mark.

  4. Click the 'OK' button to save the setting.

HP Officejet 7110 won't print black and white w/o color cartridge. I never print in color; yet the machine will not print in just black and white without having a color cartridge with ink in it. Why would...


I've used HP Inkjet/Officejet printers for years. Many HP inkjet printers also use the color cartridges to some extent to create 'black' in slightly different shades, that can be un-noticeable to the eye.
To print using only black ink, try doing as follows:

When you click on 'Print' from your browser, the printer properties (or preferences) page opens.
You must first set the printer to not print in color (color is the default setting). Then you must set the printer to use 'black ink only' by using the 'advanced settings' as follows:
1. In most browsers there will be a box on the lower right of the printer properties page that says 'advanced'.
2. Click on that box to get the advanced settings page to open.
3. Once open, the feature you need to check is called 'print in grayscale'. (It is usually at the top of the list) It is set to 'off' by default. Just click on it and a menu box drops down and one of the choices is 'Black Ink Only'.
4. Click on that and then 'save' or 'apply' those settings.

Then your printer should be using black ink only.
You will probably have to set that each time you want to start a new printing job, as the default settings on these printers are tilted toward using the color cartridges in order to sell you more colored ink.
Also, if you are using Windows 10 and the 'Edge Browser' that comes with it, you cannot get to the 'grayscale' option. So either use a 3rd party browser, or use good old Internet Explorer, (which is still included in Windows 10) to open and get to the page you are trying to print.
I hope this helps. If not, go to HP.com and type in the model number of your printer and then do a search from there for detailed instructions for your printer model (which might be slightly different than what I have shared here.

Can I set default printing to black and white for color laser printer?


Yes. Any printer's default options can be set as desired. Open the printer's properties (Start/Control Panel/Printers/right click the printer and left click Properties), and change the setting as you wish, then click OK. Those settings should be used each time you use the print command, unless you change the settings for that particular print job.

Hope this helps, and please rate my advice, good OR bad.

Good luck!
