If the ink cartridges are loaded, when you choose File Print, go into the properties and indicate you would like to print in color. Or you can go to the Printer from Start, Printers & Faxes or it may be under Control Panel.

Printing only black in TallyGenicom 8108N

You can change the colour setting in the printer driver to Black Only, this means you will only print Black and White using only the black toner.
To make this change on Windows XP;

Open the Printers and Faxes Folder.
Right Click on the printer driver for the 8008.
Select Printing Preferences.
Click on the Color/Print Quality Tab.
In the Color Mode section select the B&W radio button.
Click on the APPLY button

This should change the pritner driver to print only black and white.

My HP Officejet 7410 All-in-One Inkjet Printer is doing the following: 1) It prints in color even when the document is black and white (using up the color ink) 2) It prints much more slowly than it did...

go into your driver and change your color preferences to black and white. that way when you want to print color you actually have to tell it to do so. which will save your color ink, and will print much faster. full color printing of a black and white document uses all ink colors except black to make what is called process black.

I have a full black ink cartridge and no color cartridge and it won't print - black and white text.

In the Printer properties
There is an option like:
Print in color Print in Black and white (it may be different wording for different printers)
Change it to print in B&W
When you get your color cartridge remember to change it back to color - Normally it should be left in color.
hope this will work for you

Can i print black and white text only when colour cartridges are empty but black is full on an ip14300?

you can make a selection from the File->Print option of your word processor or whatever package you are using. it is your command that sets the printer to B&W or color. If your Black ink finishes then the printer even if set to color will print black as near black with color inks.

My printer copy's in color but prints photos in black and white,

Check your settings for your printer software program, change it to black and white, and then you will need to change it back to color, if you want to print in color.
