If you were printing color copies, then by default, HP printers set themselves the print quality settings to High Quality, which means, when you print black, you'll get the high quality print-out, i.e, the combination of colors to make black without the black cartridge and the result is Greenish texts or graphics.

Sometimes if we print and switch between color and black frequently, we need to keep changing the settings as well.

Open "Printers & Faxes" folder from the "Start" menu or from the "Control Panel", right click the Printer's icon, select "Printing Preferences", click the "Color" tab..click the radio button "Print in Grayscale" again from the selectable option, select "Black Ink Only", "Apply" then "Ok" and try again. Note that this settings will become the default print settings, but if you need to print color documents, you can simply select from the print options/settings at the time when you give the print command.

You can refer to these illustrated pictures:

I have a kodak ESP-3 all in one printer that has a new black, and new color ink cartridge, and the printer does not print any colors. only prints black, grey, and a litte bit of greenish tint.


Inkjet printers do not like being left unused.
The color print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print nozzles.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this problem.
NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.

HP 722C has quit printing black in color draft


WORKAROUND: Select EconoFast or Draft as the print quality setting in the printer properties. This will prevent the color cartridge from being used. - Or - Try another color cartridge. The color cartridge is used to print grayscale images in Normal or Best print modes, so if one color has run out, the printout will have the wrong tint. With a full color cartridge, the colors can be properly combined to create a composite black. CAUSE: When printing with Normal or Best as the print quality setting, the HP Deskjet 710C or 720C or 722C series printer will use the color ink to improve print quality output, even when printing a grayscale image.

Im not realy familiar with Kodak printers but my best advice would be change the scaling in the printer settings. There should be a setting that allows you to alter the coloration, if not try cleaning the cartridges. There should be a selection for that within your printer settings.

Yeah, I had mine checked for the same thing. The "blue" - There's only three - red yellow blue- portion of your tube died. Not repairable. Last I checked it costs at least $1,000 for a new 40 inch tube. Good luck. Mine went to the garbage dump!
