Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer

Writing in grey scale

My printer, totally new bought just yesterday, refuses to work since the red has finished. I have to print a document with only black words but, even though I choose the grey scale, it doesn't work or print mostly in green not using only the black toner. Is it possible to print ONLY using the black toner? Please let me know, sorry if I wrote in a bad english, I'm from Italy.

Make sure that in the printer driver that print the text as gray scale isn't checked and that the toner saving mode isn't on. failing this you may have a faulty machine return it to the store and get an exchange.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

I have some documents to print for my business, however one of the "colour" cartridges is empty and the printer refuses to print anything. I don't want colour printing, I only require black and...

It probably isn't even empty, it's just that the time is up on the cartridge.
Some of the printer companies are doing that, just to make more money. They sell the printers cheap then force you to buy their cartridges and stop printing long before the cartridge is actually empty.
Unfortunately, no; you can't force it.
