I want to preserve my color cartridge and am trying to print in black and white only, but it won't do it. Help!


-try going to printer properties, preferences, look for option to print only in grayscale.
-if that won't work, you can remove the color cartridge, it will automatically print in grayscale.
-this technique is supported by many HP printers.

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.

I want to print in only black but my printer keeps telling me to install my color cartridge. How can I get my printer to work/print using only the black cartridge


You can print in only black and white by choosing the grayscale option in the print properties, but you still have to have ink in each of the color cartridges. Even if you are only printing black, the machine will not let you print if any of the colors are out.

Replace the empty ink cartridge, and then select "grayscale" to print only in black and white.

Is there any way to get my printer to print only black copies without having to buy the new color print cartridge


Go to the printer settings - Preferences- color tab - and select Grayscale in the color selection.

Once this is done, try print a color text and see if it comes in a gray scale. This will work.

To give you a tip on this.... understand that this printer has a black ink cartridge and a tri-color cartridge. When we select grayscale, only black cartridge would be used.

Good Luck.

The HP 6300 Officejet printer at my office will print black just fine, but will not print a drop of color. Even the on the test page the color sections are either blank or pale grayscale.


This is one of three problems. The ink cartridge is overfilled, it needs cleaning or alignment, or it is dried out and you need to purchase a new cartridge. If it is dried out, you cannot refill it. The sponge inside is dry and cannot be fixed. Another problem could be in your printer settings. Did you check to make sure that your setting are not on grayscale (black cartridge only). To do this, when you go to print, click File - Print - then click Properties. There should be a tab in that area that will tell you if it is on black ink only. Try to make sure the cartridges are clean and/or replace them. This usually fixes the problem. Cheers.

HP Officejet 7110 won't print black and white w/o color cartridge. I never print in color; yet the machine will not print in just black and white without having a color cartridge with ink in it. Why would...


I've used HP Inkjet/Officejet printers for years. Many HP inkjet printers also use the color cartridges to some extent to create 'black' in slightly different shades, that can be un-noticeable to the eye.
To print using only black ink, try doing as follows:

When you click on 'Print' from your browser, the printer properties (or preferences) page opens.
You must first set the printer to not print in color (color is the default setting). Then you must set the printer to use 'black ink only' by using the 'advanced settings' as follows:
1. In most browsers there will be a box on the lower right of the printer properties page that says 'advanced'.
2. Click on that box to get the advanced settings page to open.
3. Once open, the feature you need to check is called 'print in grayscale'. (It is usually at the top of the list) It is set to 'off' by default. Just click on it and a menu box drops down and one of the choices is 'Black Ink Only'.
4. Click on that and then 'save' or 'apply' those settings.

Then your printer should be using black ink only.
You will probably have to set that each time you want to start a new printing job, as the default settings on these printers are tilted toward using the color cartridges in order to sell you more colored ink.
Also, if you are using Windows 10 and the 'Edge Browser' that comes with it, you cannot get to the 'grayscale' option. So either use a 3rd party browser, or use good old Internet Explorer, (which is still included in Windows 10) to open and get to the page you are trying to print.
I hope this helps. If not, go to HP.com and type in the model number of your printer and then do a search from there for detailed instructions for your printer model (which might be slightly different than what I have shared here.

How can I print Black only?


Hi

HP Inkjet printers work only if both the cartridges have ink unlike HP Laserjet printers.
If you want the printer to print only in black, Follow the steps

Start --->Control panel -- >Printers and faxes ---->Right click on the printer icon (HP c5100) select printing preferences.
Under printing prefences there u will see an option to print with black or print in gray scale.

Note:HP Inkjet printers like Photosmart C5180 will work only both the cartridges have ink.

Thanks
Riz

Can this machine COPY from the Black Cartridge only.


Click Start - All programs - HP - HP Director/Solution center.
In HP Director/Solution center. Click Settings - print settings - printer settings . Click on the Colors tab. Enable the option Print in grayscale and Black print cartridge only.

This is the only way to print with single black cartridge.

Thanks
