If you are printing using a color (not "black cartridge only" ) driver, yes, the printer won't print because it uses a "process black" when you use a color driver. In other words it creates black using the 3 colors, and doesn't actually touch the black cartridge. You will need to change the default driver to one that you create. go into control panel, hardware and sound, devices and printers (win7) right click the officejet 6500 (not the fax driver) and click printer properties click the advanced tab, and click printing defaults click the fast economical printing template. Change "print in gray scale" to Black Ink Only Click "save as" and name the profile "black draft" click the newly created "black draft" profile, and click APPLY and OK This will now be your default, and it will print in black and white while the color cartridges are empty.
I'm not a computer geek at all, but I find the color cartridges always run out first. Try to change your printer settings so it will only print in black and white and so uses the black cartridge and not the color one. If the the color cartridge is empty, the page will not print correctly. It may print some of the black color only.
Specifically on the Magicolor 5430DL you can print when a cartridge is empty, but this is disabled by default. To enable printing even with a toner cartridge empty.Press the Menu Button, then press the right button until the ENGINE menu appears and press the select button.Next press the right button until TONER appears and press SelectOnce in the Toner Menu the first option should be "EMPTY" if not press the right button until you see "EMPTY" and press Select.There are two options, the default is "STOP" pressing the right button once should change from STOP to CONTINUE.While the display reads "CONTINUE" press Select.You should see the message "CONTINUE is selected"You can now print even when one or more cartridges are empty. However, the lack of the cartridge's color will be noticed in any print jobs calling for that color... (Obviously)
as long as the color print cartridges remain in the printer you should be able to print in only black and white.
If the error message does not come up you should be able to tell the
printer to print in black and white in your page setup or print properties portion when you go to print your page.
(1) go file print or print (2) a gray box will pop up click on properties
(3) Click color (4)click gray scale
This should do it for you! (5) select black print cartridge only
Yes, go to print properties and find the print in gray scale and it will print in black only. WHen you open the print window. Click on preferences and then look for the color tab. Click on the "print in grayscale" box.
You don't have to replace the coloured cartridges if you only use black. But if you print something that is not pure black then it will use the other colors. For expample, if you print on a gray scale, since this is a color printer it will use the colored cartridges to get the gray color. The colored printer will only use the black ink for pure black colours. If you just use black to print, why not use an inkjet printer that just prints black or uses black cartridge. It is available in the market.
Unfortunately, you cannot used the printer if one of the ink cartridge is empty., compare to the other printers you can print a black text or gray scale if the color is empty or one of the cartridge is empty.
All kodak printers work the same both cartridges should have ink on ink before you can use It.
HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps
Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.
Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.
You go into your control panel and select properties, select reset ink counter and tell it you have a new color cartridge. It won't know you lied. When you choose gray scale printing it uses the colors to create black just to extend the life of your black cartridge.
