Depending on the settings in the computer, composite black may be selected (composite black is all colors use that to simulate black) so it would be LIKE a black color.
This could indicate the black toner is out and the printer is compensating.
The setting for DPI could be the culprit.
There are several levels of print,
Check the printer's menu to make sure you are in a default print, or (reset to default).

My 5510 will do a good test page but when I want to print out something else ,it goes into very slow mode


Dear user,

the speed depends on what you are printing , slowest will for color pictures, also black and white picture will take time followed by text page, the test page usually has just few stuff to be printed hence it appears to be printed too fast.

Canon ip4300 color ink empty but I only want black


No, Canon does not have this facility. Also mostly greyscale is not light black but rather a mixcture of the 3 primary colours. You should have a reset/resume button on the printer - hold this in for a slow 5 seconds to de-activate ink warnings per cartridge that is giving alarms. Proceed carefully and only print text that is black so that the colour printheads do not burn out.

Very slow printing - HP 5610 all in one


Very simple solution: The cartridges still have ink in them but printing is very slow. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a wet paper towel and wipe the print head on each one until the ink flows from each head. Usually it is the color cartridge because it is used less than the black one. Once ink is flowing again, reinsert the cartridges into the printer and your normal printing speed will return. This worked for me, no thanks to the "experts" or trouble shooting guides.

PRINT IN BLACK WITH COLOR CARTRIDGE?


Yes, you can print out in black from a color cartridge, however it is not advised as you will run out of colored ink twice as fast as it combines all the colors to get black.However it works great when your in a pinch and need black ink.
Just go to your printer properties when you print and the option will be in there someware.

Printer prints in color but has gaps


Have you tried a new colour cartridge? This is a classic sign that the cartridge may be low on ink. When printing text, assuming you are printing black, it is likely that the black cart is doing most of the work so the gaps are insignificant. You could try printing text in several different colours. If the colour cartridge is low, you'll find that some colours may be ok but others may have gaps.

Best to try a new cart if you have one.
