Somebody must have followed the instructions:

Print Only in Black and White:
• Click Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes.
• Left click on Laser to highlight.
• Click File > Printing Preferences.
• Click on the Color tab.
• Click on the circle by Grayscale to move the bullet to that selection.
• Click Apply and OK.

to switch from "colour" printing to "black".

So, "unclick" the 'Grayscale' setting.

I have a OKI C710 printer that I bought from Radio Shack in Mayfield and they set it to just print in monochrome and I am wanting it to print in color again but don't know how to reset it back

They probably changed the setting in your operating system. Do you have windows or apple? Beyond that, do you recall if they made this change at the store on the printer itself, or were they tinkering with your PC when they made it monochrome?

How to print when a color is empty in a HP Photosmart 6100

I have a epson printer that does the same thing no matter what i did it would not print anything.The printer companies do that so you will have to buy a new color ink cartridge just to print anything.I think its wrong but who are we to say,when cartridges are $ 50 bucks I think we should have a choice. Sorry I could'nt be more help.

Radio Shack Oki C6100 does not print color... only greyscale. Solution on your site might work on another operating system, but the suggested fix is to download a utility called "English Job Accounting...

I'm not familiar with this printer, but my Samsung colour laser has an option in the driver for choosing 'color' or 'grayscale' - make sure it's not something as basic as that for starters.

Can i print in just black and white with my oki

You can. It's in the settings when you go to print something out. Either that or properties. It's not difficult to find, but I'm not sure where exactly it would be for that particular printer.

My printer is not printing in color its a oki c6100 in only prints in black and white

Oki appear to only have made a B6100 model printer, this is actually classed as a workgroup mono printer and only prints in black and white, It is not a colour printer here in the UK. I think the US may have this as a C6100 and I think it is similar to the 5000 series of printers. the user manual can be found at . I would print a Menu Map and check the settings and also check the driver setting is not set to B/W printing.

My new Oki C6100N won't print in color without some sort of code. Do have have the code know what it is? Thanks in advance and we will repay you.

My new Oki C6100 bought from Radio Shack will not print color, Radioshack wrote firmware so only managers could print in color. Need firmware to write over RadioShack firmware.

We have recently bought a second hand OKI C5200 Colour Laser Printer and even though the black and white print seems to be great the clour is coming out with coloured streaks, what would you recommend?

One or more of the drums may be defective. Swap the black with another color and print a document. If that color printed the charectors ok, then continue the test with the other drums each taking a turn in the Black drum position until you find the bad drum.
