    Hello Jeroen.

    I assume you are using the printer on a Macintosh, envoirnment? Please correct me otherwise.

    The workflow default scanning set up to scan documents in black and white. Be sure to change the settings for scanning to scan color documents:

    If your version of OS X 10.7, be sure to install the critical update below. Skip this step for any other version of OS X.

    Now change the settings of the device as follows:
    1 open the HP utility and select your device.
    2. based on Scan Settings open the "Scan to Computer".
    3. click on the tab scan tasks.
    4. Select the affected shortcut and click on change... (or double-click on the shortcut).
    5. in the section of scanning from an HP device, click the blue triangle to expand the menu.
    6. in the expanded menu now, open the drop-down next to the Mode
    7. now select the color option, and then click OK to save the changes. The next scanned using this workflow is displayed in color.

  • Photosmart HP 6520: HP 6520 scanning in black and white


    My HP 6520 scans in color black and white docs.  I read the various messages from others who have similar problems and have downloaded the latest drivers on the Apple site.   When I open the HP utility and navigate to "Scan to computer" and 'Modify tasks analysis' I find the menu only 2 items I can interact with are "Document (PDF)" and "Photo (JPEG).

    When I press the button Edit, I get a submenu that I can develop to show the type of device, the presets and exit.  When I select the "show details" button, I get only one bar for me to choose the quality in which items can be scanned.  I don't see the Mode option that should allow me to select Save in both black and white.

    Please can you help me with a few tracks here - thanks in advance.

    Hi Waterboy71

    I carried out the tasks that you recommended and there is a degree of progress, while getting only not in a fully satisfactory place.

    Certainly the HPScan shortcut on the desktop icon will allow the scans for color photos but the documents in PDF format are in black and white.

    However, if I take the longest walk around the system, select the printer in the printer options and select scanner in that, a submenu opens and I can propose to scan in color, if its for documents or pictures.

    Is not as simple as it used to be, as I didn't have to do that before - maybe it's a result of a system of 'upgrade' somewhere along the way.

  • Photosmart 8450 prints only black and white with the new Mac with OS 10.6

    I just bought a new Mac with OS 10.6.  (former was OS 10.5)  Now my Photosmart 8450 will print only in black and white.  I installed the single upgrade on the site of HP, no change.

    Is there an other update I need?

    You want to disable automatic session opening, which may be why it behaves in this way.

    Go to System Preferences

    Go to security

    Under "for all accounts on this computer", place a check mark next to 'turn off automatic connection.

    In addition, I do not know if you set a password for the test account, but put something simple as 123 - just something / anything.

    Once that is done, choose log in the Apple menu, or reboot. This should bring you to the login screen where you can specify the account to enter.

  • I want to print in black and white only on my hp photosmart 6520

    Photosmart 6520 windows 7 How do I put this so it prints only in black and white not color at all times.

    Hi macys.

    Welcome to the HP forums!

    Implemented a Photosmart 6520 for black ink only from your Windows 7 computer? That I can help with

    You will want to start devices and printers (via your control panel) with access to your folder and right-click on your Photosmart 6520 icon and select Printing Preferences. The window that opens will be similar to the display on the left of the screenshot below. On this screen you click the Advanced button, and then you will see a screen similar to the one on the right of the screenshot. There, you go the black ink only setting and press OK. Press and then apply on the previous screen before pressing OK again. The driver will now be on use black ink only.

    Let me know if that does the trick for you!

  • 6520 photosmart all-in-one: can't get Photosmart 6520 to print in black and white only reliable

    I'm trying to get the 6520 Photosmart of HP all-in-one to print only in black and white. I followed the instructions in the manual (go to the preferences of the printer by selecting "Black ink" only 'Print in grayscale,' hit 'Apply' and 'Send'.)

    Now, if I do a table in the word processor Open Office and fill the cells with different colors, they print in black and white. Bonus. This is what I want. However ... When I print a page of Open Office spreadsheet (the ultimate goal), there are all the cells, printed in color of life.

    That is what it is? How can I fix?

    Afternoon @MSWS,.

    I can help you with the printing settings in Open Office.

    It seems that this program has its own options that can bypass the default print settings.

    I found this page of support which may help you with the settings. OpenOffice - control print

  • Photosmart C310: What models allow a black-and-white printing with low color cartridge?

    I'm looking to replace my old HP Photosmart Premium all-in-One printer, because it works with reliability more. My biggest problems with this model are:
    I can't print in black and white when one or more of the color cartridges must be replaced
    The black ink cartridges work only sporadically. I lost a lot of money on the black ink cartridges that do not work, and I tried all the techniques of troubleshooting many times and no solution.
    I hate having to spend $100 + to replace the cartridges. It's such a scam!

    I have teenagers who need the ability to print the homework on a very regular basis and in a timely. I can't spend another frantic morning, trying to get a printer (with new cartridges) to print!

    I hope someone with a knowledge of the range of HP products can explain different types of all-in-one printers available to me... and which would be best suited to my needs. Ideally, I'd like to find one that allows to print in black and white ONLY when the color cartridges are low or exhausted - if there is such a thing?

    Thanks in advance for any info, tips or advice anyone could offer!

    Hi @katvit74,

    While I don't have any specific purchasing advice @katvit74, I can offer a few troubleshooting tips to see whether your printer is at the end of his life.

    You're not the first to express frustration at having to have impoverished the cartridges replaced to continue printing. Personally, I suggest to use grayscale options, when printing so that the colored inks not so quickly adjust upward. Frankly, after reading your post again, I feel that you don't have want to solve your Photosmart Premium.

    I value your time and do not want you to feel like I don't have. That being said, we will encircle your initial request. Maybe you would rather a system printer for 2 ink that the cartridge supports single mode, or maybe a Laserjet that prints black only. The printer you choose should be based on your needs. According to me, the best way I can help is to offer you the tool product Advisor.

    Tool advice product is designed to target the product most suitable for your particular needs. Please answer all questions to give us the most complete picture of your needs - more information you provide, the more efficiently, we can recommend.

  • 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.
