I have a CLP 510 and everytime I print it comes out dark black with no other colours. I have changed the cartridges, verified the settings in the print settings,and even printed the test page to confirm the problem. I don't know what else to do and I hope that someone can shed some light on what is happening here.

Re: Dark Printing job
This is normally caused by a defect in the high voltage charging of the Drum unit. Most of the time it is the actual OPC Drum ( the part that your toners insert into ), but occasionally it is a defective high voltage power supply.
The OPC Drum is considered a consumable with a limitted life expectancy and is user replaceable.
This SHOULD fix the problem, but if not, the HVPS would need to be replaced, and this would require an experienced technician to install it, as it is not a user replaceable part.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes, it is true that most of Color printers will not allow you to print document if one or more of the recommended Cartridge of the printer is empty or removed from the printer. for printing only black, the better option will be to change your printer settings while printing a document. ex: when on a document ,and your press Ctrl+P for document printing, there is a option where you can select print color as black and the printer will print your document in Black only.
You need to take it a couple steps further after your test print. Sounds like your print heads need cleaning or your cartridge may need aligning. It's best to do this each time you install a new cartridge. get more information and help from here .
90% or more of the time on this printer dark lines are coming from your toner/drum cartridge. You can verify this by changing cartridges if you have a spare. If you don't then remove the cartridge and look at the colored cylinder in the cartridge and see if the same "lines" are on the cylinder that are on your prints. This will tell you for sure that the cartridge is bad.
Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.
Your printer creates it's black by using ALL the colours together. This effectively gives a very dark purple rather than black.
It sounds like you have a colour cart that is drying up or may be struggling to get enough air into the cartridge. Make sure you have removed any tape over the vent holes if you are using compatible inks. If not then try running a couple cleaning cycles via the button panel/driver.
If you alter the settings in the driver by going into START - PRINTERS AND FAXES and then right click on your 2610 and select PROPERTIES - the changes you make in here will be set as the default settings for each print job.
Various models do different things so you will have to checkout some stuff.
1. black is green- what it mean is if you take some black ink and wet it to dilute it will sh0w dark green then lighter etc., because black is all colours mixed.
In most printers when a 'black' document is printed actually all colours are printing - take a look under a magnifying glass.
Some printers however allow for 'black' only printing.
But you have to set it up.
So check your manual and software or what comes up on the screen.
Then come come back
