I want to print in black only.  When the print dialog box appears, the ONLY option is standard. There is no color/quality Option or the Option advanced as indicated in the manual.  There is no manual control.

2. to access the color options, click in the area of selection below, listed as the name of the program (e.g. TextEdit)
Will appear as Copies & Pages within Microsoft Office applications.

3. Select Type/quality paper in the menu dropdown.

4. you may need to click the triangle next to color Options of spending parameters, you will find the levels of gray or black in this dialog box.

You can save the settings for later use by clicking preset > save current settings as preset... a used preset by default remains until you select any other preset.

  • Mac OS x print duplex LaserJet Pro 200 M276nw

    I recently bought the HP LaserJet Pro 200 M276nw understand that I would be able to do manual duplex printing. However, after reviewing the instructions in the manual and try to understand through various blogs I can't always manually duplex.

    The instructions say that I'll be able to select manual duplex in the finishing menu under Print... However, there is no such menu for me on any program and the "double option" is grayed out. Please advise otherwise I might have to return the printer to find something that will work with printing recto verso or auto manual.

    Hi wegotjoy,

    I see by your post that you are unable to print double-sided on your Mac.

    Check the name of the driver that is installed by the printer. Airprint driver could be installed instead of the printer driver. (usually by default, Airprint)

    Click on the Apple menu, click System Preferences. Click on Printers & Scanners, highlight the name of the printer on the left side and right side of the screen should display the name.

    If the name of the printer indicates Airprint, then it of the Apple drivers, remove it and add the name of the printer back in the list. Click on the sign - to remove the driver and then click on the + sign to add the driver might have to drop-down list to select the name of the printer to add a click.

    Now try and print both sides.

    On the file menu, click print .

    Open the final menu and click the Manual Duplex or open the Manual Duplex


    Click the Manual Duplex check box and select a binding option.

    Click the print button. Follow the instructions in the pop-up window that appears on the computer

    screen before the battery of exit in Tray 1 to print the second half.

    If the problem persists, then download and install the printer driver to see if that will solve the problem.

  • Service error 49 - Turn Off, then on - LaserJet Pro 200 M276nw

    I was the addition of another post for a different printer but didn't want to Miss anyone with MY printer problem.

    UPDATE * (at least for my LaserJet Pro 200 M276nw)

    I found the cause but will need help from someone at HP to "solve" this one...

    My new guard M276nw throw a 49 Service error, CAT has given a lot of power, voltage on, wait, try again blah blah blah, blah blah fuser problems. 10 minutes from the forum search put me on possible wireless network issues with other printers and the SSID. Anyway after regaining a printer Staples and saw the problem coming up again on a new another brand... I tried the search Forum and Tada! at least I was able to find a cause.

    I have a D - Link DIR-825 wireless router. He has dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz).

    Normally I enabled for the multitude of devices that people have these days in my house.

    I updated the firmware to the last update (20121026) and then restarted.

    Roger restarted shortly after error Service 49.

    Then I disabled the two strips to test each independently wireless band.

    The printer acted normally so I decided allow each band separately.

    When I turn on the 2.4 GHz band in the router, the printer immediately throws an error in Service 49.

    I tested several times (5 to be exact) and every time when the router restarts the printer says error.

    So, I left off 2.4 GHz band and then the 5 GHz band.

    I activated the band 5 GHz 3 times and turned off and found no effect on the printer (at least in a 5 minute window).

    So now I'm left with only a single band wireless router or printer who likes to turn on every 20 minutes or more.

    There is probably a setting (or 2) which can be changed in the router or printer that can prevent this (I hope).

    I just need to find the right person in HP...

    I should have updated this thread I'm sorry, but I found myself updated the same problem on another thread of printer M251nw, since someone has answered that one. I have to keep that one thread - sorry, but it seems to me that I just heard another as well, but for a m475dw as well. Maybe the same problem that I don't know.

    Anyway to update my m276nw situation: After experimenting for a while try to limit I decided to eliminate the possibilities by disabling my router another suggestion of posters to remove the printer from the wireless environment and reset to factory settings. So I turned off my 2.4 GHz band in my router (leaving 5 GHz active), reset the printer and it was sitting still (no reset), he even went to sleep normally. I turned on the 2.4 band and the printer immediately threw the error repeated tent kept the same result no way to leave on the 2.4. The next day so I decided to check my router and found 2 year old firmware. It took several updates to get current and on the last I didn't reset the printer to the factory again and there's no error yet. The printer acted normally for a week, he normally sleeps and wakes. It was turned off (on purpose) a few times and everything seems normal.

    I have not activated wireless again since my house is wired and I could really do without wireless capability, but eventually I want to know.

    My DLink DIR-825 router is still active with both tapes, but using the latest firmware, like the new printer (the other). Is all this took?

Please help me. Impression of uninstall and install now, Stoped ptrint service, coil clean, reserved IP address of the printer, it all no results.  Some other customers printed successfully via wireless to the printer.

    Hi @green_wanderer ,

    I see that you are having problems printing via the wired or wireless network after restarting the computer, the printer icon is grayed out and showing not connected, but can always print from other computers. I want to help you solve this problem.

    Is the installation of the printer wirelessly or through an Ethernet connection?

    Make sure that the printer is connected directly to a wall outlet. (do not use a hub or a surge protector) This ensures that the printer is full on and can help this situation.

    I would have to power cycle the router, the computer and the printer to see if it will help.

    Print a configuration page to check the firmware version and see if you have a valid IP address.

    If you have a valid IP address for the printer, then try and access the webserver shipped off to the printer, to see if the printer is still on the network. Type the IP address in the address bar of your web browser. (Internet Explorer)

    The IP address of the port on the computer can be different, if the printer has been assigned a new IP address of the afer by restarting the computer. You will need to create a new port, or run the Add Printer Wizard.

    Other computers that are still able to print could have the port configured to print if IP address changes.

    Print a configuration page to obtain the IPv4 address of the printer and the date of the firmware. Printing a Configuration report.

    The new Version is 20140919.  I've provided the URL if you have an old version of firmware update.

  • Unknown origin of black sheet pulled from a HP LaserJet Pro 200 M276nw

    We got a paper jam on our printer. One of our employees then pulled this black sheet of our HP LaserJet Pro 200 M276nw. This could really be an original work of this printer? Never seen such a thing before, mayby it's just a few packages that I have inside? The printer does work more (paper jam error). Thanks for helping out.

  • LaserJet pro 200: location of the country of my printer was incorrect

    Just installed this printer.  When he asked the countries that I said OK to the New Zealand instead of the Canada.  Now, she wants to do it all in A4.  How can I fix it?

    Hi Michael,

    I admit it - I had to laugh, but I certainly don't think you are a fool.  I know that some products are not perhaps too clearly labelled.

    For the LaserJet Pro 200 Color MFP M276nw, to solve the problem of the country, you can do a cold reboot.  Please note that when you do so, the information and parameters are reset:

    ●Tous menu settings are reset to the factory default values.

    All location settings, such as language and national and regional, are reset.

    ATTENTION: All integrated network settings are also reset. Don't forget to print a Setup page before you run the rest. Make a note of the IP address that is listed on the Jetdirect configuration page. You may need to restore the IP address after an initialization/reset NVRAM. After performing a reset/initialize NVRAM, reconfigure all computers that print to this product.

    Here are the steps:

    1. turn off the product.

    2 press and hold the lower left corner of the screen when you start the printer. There is a secret place on the screen which will trigger the cold reset process.  The spot is where the progress bar starts when the machine starts.

    When the product has completed the NVRAM initialization, it returns to the ready state.

    With regard to double-sided printing, here are the instructions for the M276nw.  The instructions are similar to another product - it must still move the paper.

  • LaserJet Pro 200 M276NW color does not print more than once; application freezes

    Hello.  I had a problem with Laserjet Pro 200 color M276NW my family when printing from my desktop Windows 7 (64 bit) for quite awhile.  The first time I print a document after starting my computer, it prints the entire document very well.  However, the print jobs will simply freeze the program that sent them (for example Outlook, Opera, etc.) on a screen ' print the page of.  Also, I can't print a test page in Windows when the first task is completed.  I finally realized that it probably has something to do with the spooler service in Windows, or in the print queue.  When I look in the queue after printing the first document, it shows that the paper in it, but the new job that froze my app does not appear.  After I restarted my computer, I can print a document more before I have to restart again.

    The printer is networked on our home network; It is not connected to any computer via USB, and in my opinion, is the connection to the ethernet router.  My computer is connected to our network via a wireless connection.  I tried to restart the spooler, enter the IP address of the printer in my web browser (which works fine and shows the right page), and everything else listed in the Help article.  Try to open the printer properties in devices and printers does nothing.

    To complicate, the printer won't even print the first work since I got on my computer and I tried this today.  Also, I got exactly the same problem on my laptop, which also used Windows 7 and connected to our home network wireless. The laptop now has Linux on it instead. I tested several printing on it earlier and they print very well.

    My father, who has a wired connection to the router, told me that it is able to print more than one job very well.  I just had my brother (who also has a wired connection) print two different documents, and it has worked very well.  This leads me to believe that there is somehow something to do with the Wi - Fi computer assigned to the router, in combination with Windows 7, apparently.

    Moon Raker, starting with the sounds like it is a driver problem. I want to start to be sure that deleting the software and relocation happened in the best way possible. I want you to follow my steps, I can be sure that we start both on the same page.

  • Color LaserJet pro 200 M276nw MFP - Scan configuration and installation on Mac Yosemite

    Hi all

    I just bought a new LaserJet pro 200 color MFP M276nw and I am trying (for 4 days) to coorectly install it.

    My goal would be to use it via the wifi connection and I put it correctly by the façade.

    When I try to install the printer on wifi, I can install the printer driver, but I can't find the driver for scanning.

    I tried to connect by ethernet and the system to emphasize a multifunction scanner and the printer driver. If use them, it works correctly.

    Whenever I go out the lan cable for use in wifi it lose the scan functions.

    What I am doing wrong?

    Thank you


    Hi @gianluigi1982 ,

    I see that you have problems with scanning via the wireless network, but you can scan through an Ethernet connection.

    I would like to help.

    Do you have what drivers installed the printer? (Apple update or the 10.9 download drivers)

    I checked our laboratory with 10.10 installed on this computer and I was able to browse for printers and Scanners on the wireless network.

    Check the version of the driver installed.

    Go to the Apple preferences system, printers, and Scanners, highlight the Laserjet printers, click the print tab on the right side of the window, and select the Options and supplies.
    Under the general tab it will give the list the version of the driver.
    19.9 is one on the lab.

    Which driver you have show?

    Check the name of the driver that is installed by the printer. Make sure that it shows just the name of the printer.
    Click on the Apple menu, click System Preferences. Click on Printers & Scanners, highlight the name of the printer on the left side and right side of the screen it should show the name of the printer. (MFP Laserjet Pro 200 M276)

    If the full name of the printer is not correctly, delete and add the printer name back from the list. Click on the sign - to remove the driver and then click on the + sign to add the driver might have to drop-down list to select the name of the printer to add a click.

    In the printers and Scanners window, highlight the printer on the left side, to the right of the window, you should have a print/scan tab, click Scan, and then open Scanners and test scanning. If you do not have the scan tab, let me know.

    Have you added the printer as your Hello or via the IP protocol? (cannot scan through the IP Protocol)

    You use the automatic IP address or your own static IP address?

    Here is some information for scanning in OS X v10.10 Yosemite without software HP.

  • LaserJet Pro 200 M276nw: Scans can be recovered from the internal memory to a Laserjet Pro 200 M276nw?


    I wonder if a tech-savvy person would be able to recover scans of the internal memory of the all-in-one M276nw?

    As in, is it possible that confidential info of the analyses could be recovered by the unit once it has been sold, recycled, etc.?  I wouldn't see my Bank and that operations that no info there...

    I guess it's not as simple as pushing "get it back" in a menu, but someone with a material and ill intentions would be able to sort?

    If it is possible, how do I clear it?

  • Multifunction color HP LaserJet Pro 200: I can't print to my HP printer using wifi, it was working and stopped after the electricity blackout

    I got my printer to print via wifi and it was working fine but as the power went out a few seconds this morning, it will not be printed.  I even reset the wifi but does not always print.

    Well, for this issue:

    1. Make sure that the printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector.
    2. Turn the printer off.
    3. While the printer is turned off, disconnect the power cable from the back of the router for a minute.
    4. When the lights come back on the router, turn on the printer.

    Now, on the printer, click on the wireless icon that looks like a radio tower. If you see a line indicating the status: not connected, click on settings and Wireless Setup Wizard to connect the printer to your network.


    1. Click on start and open devices and printers.
    2. Right-click on any icon of your printer listed.
    3. Click on remove the instrument.
    4. Click Add printer, and follow the prompts to add a new queue for your PC.
