Is there any way to continue to print in BLACK AND WHITE when he colored ink has run out...((5 of the time I print in B&W


I'm afraid not. Most colour printers print what is known as 4 colour black to give a deeper more solid black, so all the coloured inks as well as black are needed to print a black text or image.

Set xerox 7845 to black as default print color


You can always look for answers to your Xerox questions at www.xerox.com/support .
Default the Print Driver to Print in Black and White Only for a Microsoft Windows 7 OS:
The steps below can be used to restrict color printing through the print driver.
NOTE: This solution requires administrative permissions and may require the assistance of a System Administrator.
Open the Printers, Printers and Faxes, or Devices and Printers window. See the Related Items below for additional information.
Right-click on the printer, and then select [Properties] or [Printer Properties].
Click on the [Administration] tab.
Expand the [Configurations] section.
Enable the option for [Black and White ONLY].
Click [OK]. The driver will now have Black and White printing as the default and locked so that the option cannot be changed.

Default the Print Driver to Black and White for a Microsoft Windows OS:
Open the Printers window on the computer.
Right-click on the required printer, and then select [Properties] or [Printer Properties] depending on which operating system is being used.
Click on [Advanced], and select [Printing Defaults].
Click on the [Image Options] tab.
Under Color Correction, select [Xerox Black and White Conversion].
Select any other required driver default settings.
Click on [Apply].
Click [OK] to save the settings.
Close the window.

Default the Print Driver to Black and White for MAC OS:
Launch an application, preferably not your browser, that you can print from, e.g. Microsoft Word
  1. Select File -> Print
    1. Select Xerox Features where it says Copies \& Pages
    2. Select Color Options from the drop down labeled Paper/Output
    3. Select Black and White (Black and white printing on the Xerox 7845 costs less.)
    4. On the Presets drop down, select Save As and enter a name, e.g. "Black and White" if you print to multiple printers, check the All Printers
    5. Click OK to save this preset
Now you can test printing by clicking Ok to the print dialog.

How do i print only black and white copies


  • Click "Start" and then click "Devices and Printers."

  • Right-click the printer you want to use to print only black and white then select "Printing Preferences."
  • Select black-and-white (grayscale) for the print color and click "OK." Everything you print in any application will now be in black and white. If you want to change the option back to what it was previously, go through the steps again and choose a different option.

    I have a pinnacle Pro 901. How do I print in black & white only?


    Hello, try this: Start Menu, > Printers and Faxes> then right-click on your printer. Move the pointer down to 'Printing Preferences' and click the 'Advanced' tab. There you will (should!) see 'print in greyscale' . Select this then click 'Apply' then 'OK' at the bottom of the page.

    Can't print color only black and white


    Please check if your Colour Ink Cartridge is not emply. If their's ink in the cartridge then try to service your printer through the Print Preferences. Your Colour Cartridge Nozzels could have been blocked thats why your printer is unable to print in Colour.

    In case if both the above doesn't work then check in the Print Preferences that you should not have saved the option of PRINT DOCUMENT IN BLACK ONLY. hope this helps , AJ

    No color prints


    When you tried to print, did you press the button for black or color? Either one of these will be the start button. If you hit color and it still prints in B&W, the other solution is to the pop-up box should come up then you click on advance options. file-print --then click on preferences just below your icon list of printers. Two pop-up boxes will appear. close the smaller one (I want to...), and the other box should stay open. You will see on the lower right corner the box to check off for "print color images in black & white. Make sure the box is unchecked. then click ok, and print.

    Only prints in black and white


    before you print go to the print properties or preferences, in there see if you find a setting that says black/white or color. select color then print.

    you may or may not have this option. the older HP ink-jets defaulted to Black/white and you had to manualy select color from the current document you where printing.
