CP1515n needs toner yellow - anyway print black and white documents in the meantime?

Our network CP1515n was displaying some languages set foreign and unused for some time.  When I did a full reset today, the menu now displays in English but the yellow toner is empty and we have no backup for now.  Is it possible to print documents just black & white until we get a replacement toner?  I can't do this 'online '.


OK, let's see if we can go through and do a replacement, please follow the steps below.

Press the 'OK' button on the front panel.

Use of the "< or="">" arrows to highlight - "Print quality" press "OK"...

Use of the "< or="">" arrows to highlight - "Supplies to replace" press "OK"...

Use of the "< or="">" arrows to highlight - 'Override out', press 'OK '.

Now this should allow you to continue printing. Please post your results.

Thank you

    The cartridges listed above must be replaced to resume printing.

    HP recommends that you do not remove an ink cartridge until a replacement is ready to install.

    Specified in printing dialog windows that we want only black and white, but it is still received this error message.

    Is it possible to adjust the printer settings to specify explicitly that you want to use black ink?

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    This printer takes individual ink cartridges (IIC), and this ink delivery system requires that all cartridges to be installed for the printer to work. You can set the printer to "Using black ink only", but that must be done before a cartridge is exhausted, that the printer inks for other uses in fairest impression. It also uses the ink for the maintenance of the print heads. Here a link to a document that turns to explain various ways that ink is used in a printer beyond just printing.

    Hello and welcome to the community of HP @naristot,

    I understand that you would like to know if you can continue printing in black ink, if one of the color toner is empty. I'll be happy to help you.

    This printer was designed to function as a system of four cartridges, so you must have all four available ink cartridges in order to be able to print.

    If this help will testify of my answer by pressing the 'thumbs up' below, or click on the button "Accept as Solution" if I helped you reach a solution.
  • Printing black and white only?

    HP Officejet Pro 8620

    Is there a way to make the printer print black and white only?

    Hi oldstrings,

    You can change the characters to print grayscale (using a black ink only).

    I extracted the advice of setting of printer for windows and mac.

    Alternatively, you can check out the link to reference guide user below.

  • using the color laserjet 3600n - I want to print in black and white, but it prints black and white negative. * beep *.

    using the color laserjet 3600n - I want to print in black and white, but it prints black and white negative.  * beep *.

    I was able to recreate what you see.   I managed to work around it by installing a different driver that is also supposed to be compatible with the CLJ3600.

    Please consider trying this as a possible solution:

    (1) uninstall the driver CLJ3600 by opening printers and fax machines, driver selection and right-click on it and select Delete.  Once it is removed, right-click on an empty space in the windows printers and faxes and select Server properties.  Click the driver tab, click the CLJ3600 and then click on remove.

    One when you're done, restart, and then install the CLJ3500 driver.  This is a previous version of the driver that has been implemented for the CLJ3600 and is compatible with the CLJ3600.


    After installation, try printing again.

    The output I have indicates it will print is more negative.  Please let me know if you have success.

    One caveat about this solution.  The Color LaserJet 3500 doesn't support duplex.  Of workaround only works for two printing on the package of basic or the Color LaserJet 3600 N.

  • I want to print black and white with empty color cartridge. My model is all-in-one HP Deskjet 4288.

    I want to print black and white with empty color cartridge. My model is all-in-one HP Deskjet 4288.

    The Deskjet F4288 joined the printheads on the ink supply.  These are replaced at each change of cartrdige so there is no concern about printing empty color or black cartridges.

    You should be able to print in ink entry mode "backup" by removing color (or black, but not both) cartridges.  There will probably be a warning message about ink backup mode but you should be able to print and the printer will work regardless of the cartridge is available.  In handwritten backup with the only color black cartrdige mode areas will print in shades of gray.  If print ink backup mode only the installed color cartridge then black will be printed by mixing colors.

    See page 75 of the manual here, that says:

    Use the entry ink-backup mode
    Use ink-backup mode to operate the HP all-in-one with only one cartridge. The
    ink-backup mode begins when an ink cartridge is removed from the print cartridge
    transport. During the ink-backup mode, the product can only printing from the computer.
    You cannot start a print job from the control (such as copying or scanning a Panel

    NOTE: When the HP all-in-one device works in ink-backup mode, a message is
    displayed on the screen. If the message appears and two print cartridges are installed
    in the product, check that the piece of tape plastic protection has been removed
    each print cartridge. When the plastic strip covering the contacts of the print cartridge, the product
    cannot detect the cartridge is installed.

  • Irish critical update needed to solve the problem of black and white tv on the G20!

    I recently had trouble with the implementation of the tv on my Qosmio G20, I was directed in the direction of an issue of black and white affecting earlier models. The solution to the problem was to use the drivers of the g20 and run 2 reg files.

    Having done that I tried all combinations Irish possible, with still in black and white without success, I then tried UK and got the color.

    I mucked with the recording files and found that there is no Irish layout in the file, then when a user updates to Ireland as their situation they will always get black and white.

    The Ireland uses the exact same settings for television as in the United Kingdom, however if a person chooses UK they fall outside the Irish guides or Irish to choose channels amongst (Ireland is not part of the United Kingdom)

    I found the settings for the United Kingdom-

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE es\ttv200x\Parameters\44]
    @= "United Kingdom".
    "FreqBoundary" = dword:000493e0
    "LB_VideoStandard" = dword:20000080
    "LB_AudioStandard" = dword:00020000
    "LB_ShiftFreq" = dword:00000abe
    "HB_VideoStandard" = dword:20000080
    "HB_AudioStandard" = dword:00020000
    "HB_ShiftFreq" = dword:00000abe

    Thinking the 44, was the dialing code for the United Kingdom (which took a while to understand), I added an entry to register with exactly the same parameters but with the Ireland and 353 above.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE es\ttv200x\Parameters\353]
    @= "Ireland".
    "FreqBoundary" = dword:000493e0
    "LB_VideoStandard" = dword:20000080
    "LB_AudioStandard" = dword:00020000
    "LB_ShiftFreq" = dword:00000abe
    "HB_VideoStandard" = dword:20000080
    "HB_AudioStandard" = dword:00020000
    "HB_ShiftFreq" = dword:00000abe

    I now have color tv under the Irish settings in the library, I also make it sound now, where before I didn't. I hope that the code above will add registry files named ttv2_regdata_20050111.reg that comes as part of the correction of pilot http://support.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB5800V20000R01.htm to the problem...

    Have you checked the settings > General > accessibility > greyscale > power off.

    If this does not work ty settings > General > accessibility > zoom > on. Triple, tap the screen with three fingers. Tap choose filter. Click None. Triple, tap the screen to get rid of the menu zoom. If you have enabled greyscale in zoom you can disable it in zoom.

  • Why I can't print black and white if the yellow cartridge is empty but the black is full?

    I have a Photosmart C7250 all-in-one and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, why can't I print in black and white if a color cartridge is empty? The black cartridge is full, it is not the only one to be used? Is there a setting somewhere that I can change just print in black? I tried the black and white option through command prompt on my computer but the printer always gives me an error message saying that I need to replace the yellow before I can print.

    The reason that this, your printer is actually not to damage the internal parts.  Mainly the printhead.  It is built in integrated security to help protect your investment.  HP, as other printer manufacturers, offers you with permanent print heads printers requiring ink for all colors, avoid the print heads. HP, like some other manufacturers, also offers printers with user replaceable print heads. These may or may not require ink in all colors in print, even though damage may occur if the print from the cartridge empty. Finally, HP as some other manufacturers also offers printers with the printhead into the ink supply. He is replaced at each change of cartridge. These printers will happily print with a diet low, empty or many deleted completely same models.  I understand that it can be very annoying, but it's a necessary.

  • Black and white photos at the start of printing OK then turns reddish, changed the cartridges, same problem

    HP Photosmart C4600 all in one printer, HP, Windows7 desktop. When I try to print copies of old black & white photos, on premium Matt paper or any document (I tried all), with settings for grayscale or black and white, printing starts OK (black & white) and soon begins to print with a reddish tint. I changed the cartridge back & White 3 times with the HP cartridges and the problem persists. I cleaned my print heads, the problem persists, I tried various other parameters without result. Finally, I gave up and I went back to my old Epson 15 year for problem free Photo printing. How can this problem be fixed? Thank you!

    When you print graphics color cartridges are usually used to print even black and white.  In addition, when printing on the paper color photo is always used as the pigmented black ink cartridge is not compatible with the photo paper.

    It would seem that your color ink runs out.  See the troubleshooting steps described in this page.  Most likely, you need a fresh color cartridge.
