Hello lsmith473, Here is how to set your printing preferences to black ink only:

  • From your Desktop: Click Start-->Control Panel
  • Double click Printers and Faxes
  • Right click your printer and select printing preferences
  • You should be able to set black ink only on that window or in one of the tabs.
Please reply with any issues or rate this solution if you found it helpful. Thanks! Edward

P50 dose not print black color


You might have to run the head clean more than once - if no black at all is printing.. Alternatively, set out a page of all black (background) and print few pages on high print quality setting.

good luck!

My brother MFC 240C was set for printing only black and white, since I had only installed a black cartridge. Now I have installed the three color cartrdiges also. How do I change the settings to print...


You have to change the settings in your print driver. In Windows XP or Vista, go into the Control Panel and the Printers & Faxes applet. Right click on the Brother print driver and select Properties. In one of the tabs there should be an option for either Grayscale or Color printing (probably under Color Management) -- change this to Color and then click OK or Apply to save the changes.

By changing it in the print driver settings, the change should take effect for all programs that you print from.

Changing ink default to BLACK


Not possible.
Epson uses the black cartridge mostly, but also adds color to the black printing in order to keep the color inks from drying in the print jets on the printhead.
They also make lots of money that way...

Black text Printing using Photo Black


You should be able to set the cartridge it uses when you print, as something like 'Print only black'. Fish around in the printer window when it comes up when it comes up. You may also be able to set this as a default in 'Properties' from the 'Printers' option in Windows, but then it will always try to do this, of course, which you may not want.

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!

Black printing morphs into red after black ink cartridge installation


Your printer creates it's black by using ALL the colours together. This effectively gives a very dark purple rather than black.

It sounds like you have a colour cart that is drying up or may be struggling to get enough air into the cartridge. Make sure you have removed any tape over the vent holes if you are using compatible inks. If not then try running a couple cleaning cycles via the button panel/driver.

If you alter the settings in the driver by going into START - PRINTERS AND FAXES and then right click on your 2610 and select PROPERTIES - the changes you make in here will be set as the default settings for each print job.
