Why is my dcp135c printing images in brown instead of black


Several probable causes of this.
  1. Your Black is empty and the printer is trying to approximate the Black using the other colours. Check and replace Black.
  2. Your Black printhead is blocked and all you are seeing is the other colours that are used to make the black into a full black. Check cartridge and do a printhead clean to see if this clears it. Also print off a print quality test sheet (In the Ink Management options on the printer)
  3. Another colour has been put into the Black Slot on your printer. Replace the incorrect cartridge and hope that the printhead has not been damaged by using the wrong cartridge. May need several printhead cleans to clear incorrect ink from the feed lines.
Hope this helps.

I do not need to print color documents. Will it print if I only replace the black cartridge and not the color cartridge?


you must have both cartridges fitted for the printer to work. The colour cartridge can be empty if you don't want to print any colour, but it must still be in there. When the ink monitor prompts you to replace the colour cart, just lift it out and push back down. This will reset the ink counter.
This is ok to do in emergency, but not a good practice as you'll end up with colour printhead full of air. If you're doing this to save ink, just buy some generic colour cartridges, they're quite cheap.

hope this helps

Won't print because color cartridge is empty and l don't need color


Try changing printing preferences/properties. Click on option for color, then click on box for "black ink only" or similar. Try now. If you still cannot print after changing preferences/properties, you will need to replace color ink cartridge due to manufacturer's built-in software that prevents printing when ink is low. Great for the ink companies!!!

My colour ink catridge is empty, but I do not want to use it. Is there a way to overide using colour ink?


Hello,
You can go to the printer settings (Start, Printers and Faxes, rightclick on printer and click Properties).
Click on Printing Preferences and in there should have a setting to print Black & White only.

Thanks,
Lolita

Coloured And Dotted Lines Across My Screen


Firstly, start your pc in safe mode (f8) on boot up. This will start your pc in vga mode, and hopefully the lines are still there, which will indicate a faulty graphics card, if they aren't it may be a problem driver. If no lines, go to Add/remove programmes and uninstal your graphics driver. Re boot pc then when it finds your card make sure you point Windows to the folder in which you have saved the driver files. The driver should then install, see if any change. You may have to try some older drivers, as Nvidia can be awkward at times. I have had varying problems with Nvidia and replaced with ATI cards with no problems.
