Question about Lexmark X3480 All-In-One Printer
Unless printing glossy photos,black appears as a greeny/grey colour,.
Thats because it's using the other colours to mix what it thinks to be shades of grey.
Due to the black ink being pigment based and the colours inks dye base, when printing onto glossy paper the machine will use the colour dye based inks to make up black.
If you were to print on plain paper, set to greyscale, then the machine will just use the black as the pigment ink sits onto of the plain paper and will not run should the paper get wet. With glossy paper the ink has to be absorbed into the paper ad the Black pigment ink will not do this so the machine will use the coloured inks.
Sucks but true.
