Print in black and white on hp 8600 more?

HP 8600 more all-in-One

Mac OS Lion

I would really like the grayscale option or black ink only appear on the print dialogue box, but preferences have not all options. Any reason, I am not allowed to use the printer I paid for the way I want?

I've been in all the forums and dialogues on the printer and can't seem to get an answer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!



Hey TLA,.

  • Why can I not print in black and white only?

    Why is the HP Officejet Pro 8600 more unable to print black and white only if the black cartridge is not empty?

    What I mean is that I went into the settings to set the printer to print black and white only but also print text in black only.  Yet, I HAVE to replace the cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges, because they are exhausted.  Nothing to do with black printing, whereas a SEPARATE black cartridge is and is always full should cyan, magenta and yellow ink?

    I'm aggravated about how the driver for this printer is designed TO FORCE me to buy cartridges not black when I deliberately put printing be BLACK ONLY.  I'm unable to move forward with my impression.  This is considered to be a show-stopper and is unacceptable as the setting that I've assigned and exhausted cartridges message contradict each other.  If the adjustment is made for print in black and white only including text, then print black and white, because I know that the black ink is still available.

    Take into consideration that printing may take place at any time.  Not being able to use black as my other color (WHICH IS NOT EMPTY AND IS A SEPARATE CARTRIDGE) forces me to stop.  I can't go forward until the store open.  Wal-Mart isn't always an option.   It's lost time.

    The inability to switch to self-supply to meet to use the black cartridge is only a waste of time.

    Call it for what it is, a form of ransom. HP wants me to spend the money on the color cartridges that have nothing to do with black and white printing.   When I am ready to print in color, which should be a time of my choosing.

    Either way, the form, which I am trying to print is black and white only.  No color is on this form.  It is foolish to force printing in color to a black and white document.


    Specially protect the print heads printers much NEED other inks even they only print in black. During the warm-up process, printers require all inks so they can stop before we continue. Some printers allow printing (especially those who have the ink tank three colors), but they can print at a speed of snail baby.

    Kind regards.

  • Why my printer prints in black and white in the documents

    I just bought a mac book pro and when I print my documents printed in black and white.  My printer prints color with other computers.

  • E HP Print prints only black and white

    I print from an iPad on a printer Hp 5520, using print e. Hp previously was no problem until recently, it has now stopped printing in color and will be only only printing in black and white.
    If I print using the print on the iPad icon, I am still able to print in color, but I want to use the additional settings available in e print.
    I suspect that it may be to do with my an update of e print or IOS download

    I would appreciate any advice please.

    Hello R0dder5,

    Welcome to the HP Support forums.  I see that you do not want to be able to print using all options available in the HP ePrint app for your iPad.

    I'm sure that you already have, but my first suggestion is to check the settings in the HP ePrint app to ensure that it did not retain the setting.   If you choose the color setting is always print in black and white?  If so, please try to uninstall and reinstall the application.  You will have to start the activation process.  I've included the HP ePrint Mobile App FAQ document.  There the steps to uninstall the app, if you need it.

    Please let me know what happens.

  • HP ENVY 5644 e-all-in-one Prin: I want to print in black and white


    I wanted to print in black and white but still my printer print in color when there is a picture in the paper, it's really annoying because when I go to the properties of the printer I press black and white or black press ink only then when I press on save, I'll be back in the printer properties to find her back to color No matter how many times I put it in black and white it goes back to color. I tried pressing black and white and not return to the printer properties, but it still prints in color. Also, I changed my default settings of the printer in black and white through the control panel and tap Save. When I go into Control Panel, its saved printer properties such as black and white by default, so that's good. But for some reason when theres color of text or an image on the page I want to print, I can not change to print in black and white, keeps coming back to color.

    Please help me!

    Hello @Matthew002, hope you are well!

    Thank you for joining the HP support forums, I would like to help

    I understand that you are having problems when printing in black and white and also the printer goes "offline".

    Going through your post, this could be a problem with the printer drivers. In this case, we might need to uninstall the drivers and re - install the same.

    Now try to change the printing preferences:

    • Go to control panel - devices and printers - give Envy 5640 right-click and select Printing Preferences.
    • In the pop-up window, click on the 'Advanced' button - check for printing in grayscale option. Make sure it is turned on

    PS: Your printer support mode single cartridge. So if you want to completely stop color printing you can get out the color cartridge and use only black.

    Let me know if this helps. Good luck!

    See you soon

  • HP 4520 Envy: Envy 4520 only printing in black and white

    Whenever I try to print a PDF online or a document of microsoft word or powerpoint ect., it prints in black and white. I did a test of color of the printer and align the cartridges and everything went well. The properties are not set to print in grayscale. I have no idea how to solve this problem.

    Hello @BlueOlive, greetings!

    Thank you for joining the HP support forums, I would like to help

    I understand that your printer prints in black and white only, even if you can make a color copy.

    According to me, the question is in the print settings itself. Please follow the steps and check mentioned below:

    • Go to control panel - devices and printers - give Envy 4520 right-click and select Printing Preferences.
    • In the pop-up window, click on the 'Advanced' button - check for printing in grayscale option. Make sure it is turned off.
    • Also once you try to print a document please go to properties of the printer to make sure it is not set in the option "print in grayscale".

    If the steps above has not resolved the problem, it could be a problem with the printer drivers. In this case, we might need to uninstall the drivers and re - install the same. You can visit to download the drivers.

    Let me know how it goes!

  • 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 5220 - new black ink installed according to the instructions, and will not be printed in black and white


    Today, I installed a new HP 564 Black XL cartridge in my Photosmart 5220 according to the instructions.

    Since then, I cannot print in black and white and the pages come out blank.

    Can anyone suggest how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance

  • 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.
