I have a feeling he turned on high contrast mode (supposedly it's meant to make reading the screen easier for people who are disabled, I think it just hurts everyone's eyes). To change that, right click on your desktop and go to appearance and click on the top pulldown menu and select windows xp style. Hopefully that will fix it.

I have installed a new ink cartridge and gone through the cleaning process serval times but I can not get anything to print in black. If a document is in all black, all I get is a blank sheet. If I change...

The first thing to check would be your print utility. Make sure that it is aware that there is a black cartridge installed. If you've gone through the cleaning process, try printing a test page and see if that will print the black. If not, it is either a setting in your utility telling it not to print in black and white, or a hardware issue with your printer. I will look up some documentation for your make and model printer to see what else the problem might be. Please advise with any changes when you check the print utility.

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.

Hitachi RP CRT Gone Red On All Inputs!!!

I want you to do a simple visual check of something that will tell me what the problem may be.

Go to a channel that is in black and white--old movie and tell me what color the screen/picture is.

You can also turn the COLOR in the customer menu all the way off and look that way.

What we are trying to see here is if TRACKING is set correctly or has changed. If the screen is somewhat to medium reddish it may be an adjustment outside of the customer menu.

Let me know what you find--I have seen several of these where the black and white picture was somewhat red--the idea is it should be as close to black and white as possible--if red is the predominant background color the picture will look reddish.

If this has helped and you confirm the red instead of black and white picture--I can tell you a easy way to adjust this.

If this information told you something you did not know and helps you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

My xbox 360 went from a red tint screen and now is just black w/ white specs (audio fine). I have checked and tv, wires, disks are fine. There are no red lights or e74 error (just green light).Unit is 2 yr...

If you are after the quickest way to give you xbox 360 the RROD, the Red Ring Of Death, simply wrap it up in a towel whilst it is turned on, keeping an eye on it so it doesnt cause a fire hazard as they can get extremely hot.
Once a high enough tempreature is reached, the Main Printed Circuit Board will flex, causing the two large microprocessors to lift off the surface of the Printed Circuit Boar, which will either give you the red LED in the player 1, player 3 and player 4 sections or will give you one red LED section lit up with an error message on the screen. Please think very carefully about doing this as there may be no way in reversing the damage you may cause. Good Luck.

Philip DCP750/37 turn black and white

I have had this problem all you do it wobble the screen back and forth until you find the right spot. if that doesnt work. unplug it from the charger assuming it is plugged in. If THAT doesnt work, believe me a little "thwap" on the back will.
