Dear "mmmom" if your OS is Windows go to control panel, click on printers and fax icon, now go to setting of your printer (right mouse key on it) and set it to black and white. Now your printer is always set to black and white and for color printing you have to set printer to color from application (word, excel,...) you are using.

Set printer default setting to black&white


You need to open the printer properties by right clicking on the icon for the printer in the control panel. Then select the advanced tab and click on the "printing defaults" then click on "color" and select greyscale. This will reduce color use but may no eliminate as it may print some grey scale by combining colors.

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

I only want to print in black and white-but keep running out of the other colors-how can I set up my brother685 cw to do that?


Check your print drivers for default settings. Chances are the default is set for color prints, not black-and-white.

If you go to your printers/fax area, highlight the printer icon for this model, then right-click over it. Choose 'properties' and then in the pop-up window that follows, left-click on the button that says 'printing preferences'. You'll see tabs for various choices. Look for a tab for color preferences and make sure it's set to black, then click on the 'apply' button at the bottom to make the changes.

Why does the Samsung clp-510 color laser printer keeps defaulting to black and white print out when printing color images?


Well one thing you should do is when your printing something out before you print make sue that you have selected color not black and white because most printers have a default setting to use black and white. Also make sure that you have color ink available to print.

HP Deskjet, Set to Black & White; but still prints with color!


Bronze, hopefully this is a logical issue: Assuming you're on WinXP > Go to Start>Control Panels>Printers (and faxes).
Find the printer in question in the list (maybe there's only one or 2 listed) and 'Right-click' on the icon > go down to "Printing Preferences" (about second/third down the list).
In here you will be able to set the printers default settings. I'm not 100% familiar with HPs printing dialog, but there maybe a setting there for either 'Black & White' and 'Grayscale' (albeit it should be greyscale, anyway...) if you choose black and white your printing will not have any mid-tone, so if there's a choise, choose 'Grayscale'.
You can set other features here which will become the new default each time you go to print something - personally I set to 'Draft' or 'Fast Draft' mode by default, that way when I just print out rubbish, I am saving "lots" of ink and if I want something in good quality, I change it at time of printing.
Now, there are some programs and files that "remember" you last print settings, so if you've used a colour print setting previously, that file may still pring in colour, even though the new defaults are mono (black & white). So, print using the new defaults and save the file when finished. It's unlikely the case with OpenOffice, but, I don't know. We'll tackle that as we get to it.
So, if that has not cured the problem, please let me know.

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!

Only prints in black and white


before you print go to the print properties or preferences, in there see if you find a setting that says black/white or color. select color then print.

you may or may not have this option. the older HP ink-jets defaulted to Black/white and you had to manualy select color from the current document you where printing.
