  • HP3209a not printing black and white enamel but will display the web page

    I'm on Mac OSX10.8.  My HP Photosmart 3209 has suddenly stopped printing yesterday and had a pop up that says I got printhead problems.  I spent two hours on the phone this morning with two so-called experts feel, the first who said that the problem was with my iMac (he couldn't find it) and the second who said it was a problem with the printer (he couldn't find it).  The printer is connected to an iMac by USB cable.  It will not print e-mail or most of the pages of black and white but now curiously print a web page. BTW, I put new ink in it and did not help anything, and Printhead Cleaner ran about two dozen times.  I try to run an alignment but the page it prints which is for most of the blocks of color blue on half a page is not recognizable on the scanner when I try to run the alignment.

    I think that you always print head problems.  Go to System Preferences > print & Scan.  Click on your printer, click Options & supplies.

    From there, go to utility > Open Printer Utility, then clean the print head.

  • HP officejet 8500 has more will not print black and white because the color cartridge is low

    I have entered the property and set it to 'levels of gray' and 'use black ink only', but the printer still will not print because "the yellow ink cartridge is low.

    incredibly frustrating that the cartridges of color completely stop you from printing, even if you are trying to print in color.

    Proffessional OS-windows 7

    is there a known solution for this?

    Unfortunately, the printer does not print until the replacement of the yellow ink. There is no work around for low ink message.

  • Unable to print black and white with no yellow ink L7590

    I ran more ink at the weekend and got a new black ink cartridge. Unfortunately, I did not notice that I was also out of yellow ink. I desperately need to print regular black text, but the printer refuses because he is more yellow ink! I don't want print Yellow. Is it possible to disable this error message for a HP OfficeJet Pro L7590?

    Thank you.

    Nevermind, I figured it. If you set the printer on the mode of manufacture, it ignores the ink levels. Sorted.

  • How can I get my photos from Windows Gallery to view and print in color, not just black and white?

    How can I get my Windows Gallery pictures to view and print in chiputa, not just black and white?

    Hi Petergrossman,

    Welcome to the Microsoft Vista answers Forum!

    I need few details about the question you posted.

    * What are the name and model of the printer?
    * You receive driver updates for your printer through Windows Update?
    * The printer prints the other applications in color?

    In the meantime, try the following steps.
    1. try to print the default pictures in Windows Photo Gallery and check if you get a printing color.
    2. try to uninstall the printer driver and reinstall it.

    Also check the setting of the color of the printer. Go to printer settings and make sure that you have selected the option to color.

    To print a picture, follow these steps: -.

    If you have a printer connected to your computer, you can make prints of digital photos. The quality of your photos depends on several factors, including the type of printer paper, ink and the settings of the printer of your choice. You can control many of these settings when you print the picture, but keep in mind that the overall quality and resolution of the digital picture you are printing will affect your final result.

    1. open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking on the Start button, all programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.

    2. click on the image you want to print.

    To select more than one picture, hold down the CTRL key while you click the pictures that you want to select.

    3. on the toolbar, click on print and then click on print.

    4. in the print pictures dialog box, select the printer, paper size, qualite quality print, style print and number of copies to print.

    5. When you have finished choosing how you want to print your photos, click Print to start printing.

    Choose printing options follow these steps: -.

    Before you send a print job to the printer, decide if you want to print all or part of the document or Web page. You may, for example, annotate the pages to print or select a part of a document before sending it to the printer.

    Here are common printing tasks to consider:

    1. to print that a hollering part of a document or a file, make a note of the page numbers for each page you want to print.
    2. If you want to print part of a page or a Web page only, select the content to print before printing.
    3. If you want to print a specific page, click anywhere on the page before choosing the print options for the document.
    4. the page that you clicked becomes the current page and you can print it by selecting this option in the print dialog box.

    After deciding what to print, choose how the print copies should look, and then select a printer.
    Use print preview

    To see what the print will look like before you print it, open the document in a program that offers a preview before printing. Print preview is generally located in the file menu of a program. You should be able to get an overview of each page of the document. In some programs, you can choose print in preview mode options and then print directly from the preview. In other programs, you will need to close the preview, change the document or your printer settings and print.

    If you preview or print a document, and it does not appear the way that you intended, you will need to change the document or change your print options. For example, if one part of your document fits on the printed page, you may need to reduce the font size, reduce the margins, or change the page layout and then try to print again.

  • Sort of printing black and white only when magenta cartridge is empty?

    We have a HP Office Jet Pro 8500 a. computer running Windows Vista.

    The Magenta cartridge is currently empty, and we need to print an urgent document before we will be able to get a new cartridge.

    While trying to print a black and white document only, the following error has occurred:

    Exhausted ink cartridges

    HP 940 Magenta

    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.

  • printing in black and white only on the all-in-one HP Officejet J5780

  • 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.

  • HP Officejet L7680: Can I print black and white when color cartridge is empty - HP Officejet L7680

    Help, please!

    Can someone tell me if I can continue to print black and white if the color cartridge is empty.  The product name is HP Officejet L7680.

    Thank you

    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.
  • 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.
