Printer will not print in color, only black. We just replaced the cartridges.


If its an HP inkjet printer you may have set it to print in black and white. To change this setting go to "control panel", then "printers and devices", right click on your printer, then "printing preferences", "advanced", then uncheck "print in greyscale"......Good luck !

Black and white prints are not black


Sorry, steve, that you are experiencing this problem.

According to canon.com's website regarding the i9900 InkJet Photo Printer:

Why color ink may be used when printing in black and white Even when printing in black and white, color ink is used for the following reasons:
  1. Automatic cleaning of the print head.

    To prevent the print head nozzles from clogging, the print head is automatically cleaned periodically. At that time, a small amount of each color ink is consumed.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink is also consumed.

  2. Color inks may be used to create black.

    When printing in grayscale or on photo paper or when duplex printing, although printing appears in black and white, the color black may be created using the three (cyan, magenta, and yellow) color inks. Printers without a pigment black tank / cartridge will print black / grayscale will create a composite black using color ink even on plain paper.

    Therefore, although printing in black and white is performed, color ink may be consumed.
  3. In order to keep the heavy black ink from smearing on the page or in the printer, color ink is used when duplex printing to help create black text.

    ---
I might suggest taking out the color ink cartridges leaving only black there, but some printers don't take kindly to this. So, you may have to further experiment with magenta, cyan, and yellow to make it at least seem b&w to your best eye's judgment.

Good luck on this.

Printer won't print color!!


Hi hofhofhof, it sounds as though you may have the wrong settings in the print driver window. Check to see if it is set for B&W (or black only) and also check to make sure the paper size is set correctly. You may have to do this each time you do a new print job.

HP 5610 Will not print Color documents, only Black and White


Chances are that your print driver is set to print in black and white while the copier side is automatically detecting that your original is in color. To have the printer print in color: Select file print, select your printer and hit preferences. Select the Paper/Quality tab and switch from Black and White to Color.

Nothing comes out when I print


Epson 777 will not print. No paper jam. Power light flashing; red error light on steady. Paper does not feed; if paper supply is placed deeper in feed, entire paper supply (about 12 sheets) feeds thru as one sheet normally would , without printing.

Printing black and white.


Go into printer, properties, and printer quality.  You will be able to find the b&w, or (grayscale), and just check it.  And unfortunately, your model is one where you have to go in to change every time you print at different times...meaning if you print one after another, you do not need to recheck:)
