The Lexmark Impact S305 printer requires all the cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing - even if you're printing using black ink only. To print true black, you actually use some of the color ink.
Note: Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can lead to poor print quality if you want to print color in the future.

part of your prob is that the way ink jet printers work, (according to the tech support training that I rcv'd about ten yrs ago from Canon) is that the printer "builds" the image or character by adding color to the black ink (for most of the jobs) in order to create "depth", so you will need to replace or (HINT: you can sometimes reset the cartridge by lifting the locktab and then reseating it) using the utility to replace the black cartridge. good luck!

Can I only use a black ink cartridge? i ran out


Before you print through the computer, select Print, then select "Properties". Select the "Color" tab and in there, select "Print in Greyscale"
This works for most color printers I have used where the color ink is gone.
Hope this helped.

Will no print black color doc if any other color ink is empty


actually, its not. the reason is, there is a small resovoire (sp?) in the ink cartridges. if you continue to print, the nozzles will clog up, and can cause all the nozzles not to work. even when you do just black, the printer has to clean at times all the nozzles and if your nozzles are empty, air will go into the deep and dry up the excess ink.

if you are going to do primarily black prints, you should get a black and white laser for those uses only.

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.

Colored Ink problem


Make sure you are using the correct cartridges for the Z35. They should be #26 (color) and #16 (black).

Make sure the contacts are clean where the cartridge connects to the printer electrically. A little alcohol wipe is good for this. Clean contacts on both the cartridge and the carrier in the printer.

Colored Ink problem


Make sure the printer settings are set properly to print in color on the PC. Even if there is a color cartridge, if the PC only tells it to print black ink it's not going to use the color cartridge.
