I would suggest you take out the color ink cartridge and leave only the black cartridge in the machine.

My printer is reading check alignment, is it because my color cartridge is out of ink?


No, that's not what it means.
If printer heads are not aligned, CMYK colors (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK - the usual colours in a printer) will not print in the correct place.
Assume a dark grey dot is to be printed. For this C, M and Y colored dots have to be placed exactly on the same spot. But if heads are not aligned, the three color dots will not be exactly in the same place. Therefore you will see Cyan, magenta and Yellow dots adjacent to each other instead of one dark grey dot.
It is always a good idea to align the print heads every time a new cartridge is installed.

Why will my HP Photosmart 8250 not print in greyscale when one of the color tanks is empty, there is plenty of black ink.


Greyscale in obtained by using shades of color; meaning that all color (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow) tanks must be full.

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

I changed all Print cartridges-Black, Yellow,Cyan,Blue


On this machine you have to install inks with power on and use the ink button and choose replace ink. If you just plug them in it won't register and reset the counts. You may need to run clean cycles at least twice to get proper colors.

Empty yellow cartridge, but cannot print in black?


Most printers use a little of all inks in their functioning, just to keep all the inks flowing, so while it is not printing yellow, it uses it in the startup mode to verify function and cleaning mode to clean the nozzles. Manufacturers usually do not put in a bypass for this, because they make money mostly on selling you ink cartridges.

We have a Xerox Phaser 8500N printer. The yellow is printing out a dingy gold. I hav checked the yellow print blocks and there is plenty.


What it essentially boils down to is that you're not printing enough color. The blocks are melted into a holding bin and will discolor over time. To correct this, you will need to purge the color that is "stale". Go to this link http://www.solid-inks.co.uk/technical_support-phaser_850_860_8200.html?category_id=1 and download the pdf for your color (I would recommend downloading all four to keep on hand). You'll want to open the PDF and print 10 to 20 copies until the bad ink is replaced with fresh ink. You'll notice the color change as the ink is purged.

Yellow color light keeps going off


Yeah its a pain in the rear - only solution I have found is bite the bullet and replace the ink tank. They have have a chip and if the chip goes bad you are screwed. Mine likes to go out on the cyan tank. Great product Canon.

Lexmark x 3650 change ink cartridge but it still gives a message(


Hi Glesam,
The X3650 uses the No. 37 tri-color cartridge, i.e. 3 colors in 1 cartridge. Unfortunately, when one color runs out, the cartridge has to be replaced. When you change printer, you might want to consider a printer that uses at least 4 separate ink cartridges (black, cyan, magenta, yellow). This way you need to replace only the cartridge that runs out.

Ink Cartridge Settings


Have you tried Canons FAQ? They suggest checking the grayscale box, which apparently only works with certain kinds of printing (duplexing and borderless will still use colors). I don't understand how colored inks are used to create black, but that's what they claim. Anyway, here's the link: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=257&modelid=11641
