Question about Epson Stylus 880 InkJet Color Printer
I did all the print checks, nozzle checks, etc. Changed the color cartridge, did a color test print using block objects to print black, pink, turquoise and yellow. Only black prints. How do I check to see if the driver is selected to print black only or for color? Is that the gray scale option? I have tried everything. Help!
Was gone for the weekend.
Yes, the grayscale option gives you black and white or black tank printing only.
If you go to start menu, control panel, printers, right click your printer there is the option to print test page. In the upper left should be the windows logo in color. If you don't have that and you know you've removed the protective tape for the bottom of the color cartridges and when doing the nozzle checks "you have color?", then you probably need to reinstall your printer driver.
Is your printer connected via a USB cable, a thin cable with a flat connector at the PC and a square connector at the printer. Then, let me know. Send me your printer model from the back of the printer model sticker and I'll send you the instructions and a link to the current driver as well as a program link to download a system registry clean up utility that's free to use and can clean up from an uninstall of your printer.

Found the answer. For some reason, my computer accepted a Mac driver. It called the printer Epson Stylus COLOR 880 (M). I went back to the original installation disk; thereafter, I had two printers, one without M, one with M, and deleted the M printer. All is working fine now.
