How do I change from colour to black and white on HP930c. NO jargon please I am an oldie Thanks


Hi and welcome barry_nel450 !

Under Windows 7:
Select the file you want to print and click on " print " . A window opens : click on " preferences " \
" features " " print in gray scale " . Click now on the arrow next to" high quality" and select
" black ink only " .
Under Windows XP :
Select the file you want to print and click on " print " . A window opens : click on " preferences " \
"paper/qulity " and check " black and white " .

Don't forget to click on " apply " when done in both cases !

Best regards ,
Fanaudi .

How do i print only black and white copies


  • Click "Start" and then click "Devices and Printers."

  • Right-click the printer you want to use to print only black and white then select "Printing Preferences."
  • Select black-and-white (grayscale) for the print color and click "OK." Everything you print in any application will now be in black and white. If you want to change the option back to what it was previously, go through the steps again and choose a different option.

    How do I program the printer to only print in blck/white


    Any default (or normally used) settings, can be made by changing the Printing Preferences for that specific printer.

    1) Find the printer...ex: [Start]--> [Settings]--> [Printers and Faxes]...then [right-click] on the printer name/icon.

    2) The pop-up menu that appears should list an option to select called, "Printing Preferences".

    3) Under the [Paper/Quality] TAB, you can select "Black and White" (instead of the normally default, "Color").

    4) Make sure to click OK, and that printer should (by default/ normal) print in B/W now.
    --- you can change this to "Color" in Print Setup...but it is temporary for that printing job, and should revert to it's default state, afterwards.---
    -Printing Preferences- is where any changes you make will become the Normally used setup.
    .Hope this helps

    Just go to "Control Panel" double click "Printers" and right-clicking your printer model to show "Printing Preferences..." and select "Printing Preferences..."

    On the "Main" tab of "Printing Preferences" window, uncheck the "Grayscale Printing" radio button.

    Hope it helps.

    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.

    Can't print color only black and white


    Please check if your Colour Ink Cartridge is not emply. If their's ink in the cartridge then try to service your printer through the Print Preferences. Your Colour Cartridge Nozzels could have been blocked thats why your printer is unable to print in Colour.

    In case if both the above doesn't work then check in the Print Preferences that you should not have saved the option of PRINT DOCUMENT IN BLACK ONLY. hope this helps , AJ
