Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have my settings set to grayscale and fast print. This works on most things. However, when I hit print from a website (such as for a coupon) it prints in color in the normal mode. I recently got a new computer with windows 7 on it. This is when the problem started. I have updated all the drivers and firmware. Any solutions?

Double check the Printer Settings in the Control Panel that it was properly configured as you have said. Make sure that there is only one installed. On the other hand, uninstall and reinstall it again.

Please comment if the information provided has been helpful for the improvement of my support assistance. Thank you and regards.

How can I print in grayscale on my Canon PIXMA MG8120?


That printer has multiple ways to print grayscale. The best is directly from the print menu, when you tell it to print, one of the things in the pop up box on most apps, like Word or Excel is "Options", or Print Options. From there you can set all kinds of things, and there should be a box you can check for Print Grayscale for whatever you are trying to print at the moment. You can also set grayscale as a default setting for all printing on your windows device, but then you have to tell it when you want color every time. Alternatively, on your Printers Menu System, on the third page of your little printer screen, there is a Settings option. This will lead you to all printer settings including grayscale printing setup.

I have used last 4 year canon 2900B printer. How to set 300 dpi printing resoluation


Canon PIXMA Manuals MG2900 series Resolution
Resolution The data in the image you have scanned is a collection of dots carrying information about brightness and color. The density of these dots is called "resolution", and resolution will determine the amount of detail your image contains. The unit of resolution is dots per inch (dpi). Dpi is the number of dots per inch (2.5 cm). The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail.

How to Set the Resolution You can set the resolution in Resolution on the (Scanning from a Computer) tab of the Settings dialog.
Appropriate Resolution Settings Set the resolution according to the use of the scanned image.
Item Type Use Color Mode Appropriate Resolution Color photo Copying
(Printing) Color 300 dpi Creating a postcard Color 300 dpi Saving to a computer Color 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Color 150 dpi Black and white photo Saving to a computer Grayscale 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Grayscale 150 dpi Text document (document or magazine) Copying Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 300 dpi Attaching to e-mail Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 150 dpi Scanning text using OCR Color or Grayscale 300 dpi Important
  • If you double the resolution, the data size of the scanned image quadruples. If the file is too large, the processing speed will slow down significantly, and you will experience inconvenience such as lack of memory. Set the minimum required resolution according to the use of the image.
Note
  • When you will be printing the scanned image by enlarging it, scan by setting a higher resolution than the recommended one above.

I have a MFC 490CW brother Printer I want to print B/W copies only I change the preference to grayscale but still does not print


Hi there,
That's the correct thing that you need to do, setting the printer preferences to GRAYSCALE. If that doesn't work you can also try printing document using a different/another application (example: Microsoft Word, Excel), because sometimes the setting of an application overrides the setting of the printer driver.
The last option for this issue is to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Hi, I have a Macbook running Tiger 10.4.11. I have yet to figure out a way to print in black and white from safari. HELP!


When you go to print (apple/p) and the dialog box comes up (lists printer, presets, copies, etc)
There should be a gray horizontal line across the middle of this dialog box. Note the drop down box that is on this gray line ... this is an important drop down box. When you select different items in this box, all the options underneath the gray line change.
The selection in this box is probably "Layout" by default. Change it to look at the different options, but as things change below the gray line don't get confused about which is the "main" selector drop down for changing all the options .. it's the one on the gray line ....
I'm using an HP printer, and when I select "Paper Type/Quality" in this drop down, I get an option under the gray line that says "color" -- the options in that box include the option for "Grayscale"
If I were to select Grayscale, then the printer will print only in black and white and shades of gray.
That's the easiest way to do what you want, and it will apply to any program you are printing from, since you are selecting "Grayscale" from the print dialog.

Look through all the different variables in the print dialog to become familiar with them.
If you often use one particular setting and don't want to have to go through the sometimes confusing search through the drop downs, since they change back to their defaults each time you print, then you can set a "Preset" - this will remember your settings and allow you to get to them easily ...
To do this, first select all the options the way you like them, for example you might select Grayscale under the Color option under the Print Quality section. Then, before you actually print anything, go the the top where it says "Presets" and do a "Save As" and choose a Preset name that will be meaningful to you ... like "grayscale" -
Next time you print, keep an eye on the preset - it may NOT go back to the default of "Standard." It may stay on the last-used Preset ... so keep an eye on it before hitting the print button.

Hope this helps!

HP Deskjet F4200, prints blank page


I went into print settings after failing the diagnostics.
Printing normally would just feed the paper through with no ink.
I set the settings to specifically "Fast Draft" and adjusted
minor things like paper to A4 and color to grayscale for the
print job at hand.

Bingo!

Printer won't print in color


I would guess that without specifics I would look at the printer settings. You may have the "print in grayscale" box checked thereby printing all colors in shades of black. I don't understand if you want to print in color or black and white by your question, but the solution addresses both possibilities.

Will not Print online Coupos


Just fixed my Brother HL-5140. Hope this helps :) I have struggled for years and finally figured this out from the Brother website.

If you are unable to print coupons from the Internet the print processor
setting in the driver needs to be changed. To change the setting,
1. Open Printers and Faxes.

2. Right mouse click on the Brother printer and left click Properties.

3. Click on the Advanced tab.

4. Click the Print Processor button.

5. Under Print Processor, select WinPrint.

6. Under Default Datatype, make sure RAW is selected. Click OK.

7. Back on the Advanced tab remove the check next to Keep Printed
Documents.

8. Click Apply and OK.

Try printing the coupons again.

Keep Printed Documents


If you have a Brother printer please change the following:

Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes -> Right click on your selected printer and select "properties"

Go to Advanced tab -> Print Processor

Change the settings from "BRMFC" print to "WinPrint" and set default to "raw" and Click Apply

Now go back to uncheck "Keep Printed Documents" and attempt to print the coupon.

I am a big fan of coupons.com, their tech support guy sent me these instructions. Good Luck!!
