    Is this inkjet or laser?

    If its inkjet then does the printer have 1 black and 1 colour cartridge? or is it 1 black, 1 yellow, 1 purple, 1 blue?

    Are you sure the colour is blue and not just a grey shade?

Is the colour cartridge new? it sounds like the yellow and purple heads could have dried out.

With my lexmark i could put the ink cartridge on a wet cloth to moisten the dried ink, then wipe it alow dried paper to remove it. However i would recommend reading your manual that came with it, or is available online before doing that. There are many different types of printehead and this method could damage it.

Also if you remove the cartride you should see some electrical contacts that line up with a cip on your cartridge, make sure all those contacts are clean.

Want to print black and white. How?


Setting the font type color in a Microsoft Office Word document to black will ensure that the document prints the text in black. However, if there are images, graphics or photographs within the document, they will more than likely print in color or hued colors similar to black. To ensure that the entire document prints solely in black ink, you must set the color settings on your individual printer to black-and-white

Instructions:
1.Click "File" and then "Print." To open the print dialogue box using keyboard commands, press "CTRL" and "P" simultaneously.
2.Select the printer you are using at the top of the dialogue box under "Printer" and "Name."
3.Click the "Properties" button next to the selected printer. The dialogue box that appears is different for all users, as it depends on the type of printer being used.
4.Click on a tab, button or selection box indicating "Color." Most options include high-quality color, grayscale and black cartridge only. Choosing grayscale will print the document using various shades of gray and other tones such as blue or green that match the actual hues in the document visible on the screen. A photo or picture that may look black or gray could actually have blue undertones. To print purely in black and white with no undertones, you must select either "black cartridge" or "black and white only."
5.Select "OK" to return to the Microsoft Word printer dialogue box. Press the "Print" button to print the black-and-white document.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Can't find copy menu to take a copy of an address


Hello,

May i know the printer/ copier model number to assist you better ?

The general rule is, If your printer is a Color printer, then it should have a button/option for COLOR copy.

If it does not have a button/option for Color that means it prints only in black.

My document is black, but when i print it, it came


Sounds like you have a printer that uses a multi-color cartridge to print black, instead of a separate black cartridge and a color cartridge.

If your printer does indeed use one color catridge, then your printer gets the black color by mixing all the color inks together. If one of the ink color runs out before the other, you'll end up with what you're seeing right now.

I have HP Deskjet D2466 Printer and when i want to print with color cartridge, the black color would be printed as blue color... My black cartridge was exhausted so i only can printed with color...


when the color cartridge has to make black, it uses all three colors. printing blue indicates that the color cart. is getting low on red and yellow. get a new black cart. and a new color, 'cause it' s coming due.

Let me know

I just bought a new printer today its a lenmark Z2300m Color Printer i only have color ink for it do i need black ink for it because everytime i try to print it comes out greenish


Under your printer preferences there is a way to print gray scale. SO even if your image is in color, it will print black and white. Every printer interface is different, but when you go to print, there's usually a properties or setting button that will bring you to another page from the initial print menu. here is where you would choose gray scale.

If you try for black with only a color cartridge, it'll come out a dark green or blue color. Or on some cases, it will tell you it's out of black and you can't print.

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black


I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.
