The Grayscale print option optimizes the look of color slides for printing on a black and white printer by adding shading. The Pure Black and White option prints your slides in monochrome.
Open the presentation you want to print.
Click on the word File in the Menu Bar.
Select the option Print.
The Print dialog will appear.
5.In the Color/Grayscale section, choose the Grayscale option to print in black, white, and shades of gray.
6.Choose the Pure Black and White option to print in black and white only.
7.Click on the OK button.
Could it just be that the black cartridge has run out? If not, try and clean the print heads. You should be able to do this in the printer options in Windows. It is more than likle that the black nozzle is blocked.
Now a days all HP ink catridges available at low price that means ink quantity is also low.So if you print heavy coloured pages it will deffinately consumes more ink.So print in gray scale or black and white consumes low ink. Compare to gray scale,black and white printing consumes very low ink. So print in black and white is the better choice.
I've run across this a few times. And its always the pdf you really wanted not the one you just finished printing (Sound familiar? ;-])
Assuming the pdf is not corrupted then you can be missing a font which you fix by telling it to use one you have. Or if that's not it try printing it in greyscale only. I have had issues with printing color pdfs that work when you print them black and white.
First with a clean soft cloth and a very small amt of alcohol clean off the underside of the printer carridge (the holder for the print heads) also where the print heads cleaning station is clean out any large masses of congealed link. Then remove the ink cartridge in question and with a pencileraser gently rub the contacts and both the cartridge and the carridge replace the cartridge. Using the software tools for the printer clean and align the printheads ( if there is an option to do so). If this dosn't fix the problem try a different ink cartridge.
