To print in 'black'/monochrome you will need to follow the instructions below.
We recommend that you close any open applications from which you intend to print before following these steps so that the settings will be updated in these applications.
Follow the instructions for the operating system you are using:
'Black Ink Only' or 'Grayscale' is on the left of this screen. Click into this check box to tick it and click OK to save these settings.
'Black Ink Only' or 'Grayscale' is on the left-hand side of this screen. Click into this check box to tick it and click OK to save these settings.
If you wish to save these settings you can create a 'Preset' - select 'Save As' from the Presets list and enter a name for your Preset e.g. Black Ink Only. Your printer will now be fully configured to print in black, providing this Preset is selected each time.
When you go to print, you can select the Grayscale setting in the Print window. This is normally located to the right of the box under Color. Click on the radio button beside Grayscale to enable this mode, then click Print to continue.
You can create and save your own custom setting in the Print screen. To do this, make sure that the Media Type and Color settings in the Print screen box are correct for the type of document you will want to print in the Grayscale mode.
Click Custom in the Mode box at the bottom of the window. This makes the Custom Settings list available to the right of the Mode settings. From the Custom Settings list, select the most appropriate setting for the type of document or image that you want to print. Click Save Settings. If this is not present, click Advanced (which is available after you select Custom).
In the Advanced print screen, change the Color mode to Grayscale, and then click Save Settings. The Custom Settings window appears. Name the setting and click Save.
Your printer is now configured to print in black, providing you select this setting each time. To do this, click Custom mode in the Print window, and then select your named custom setting from the list.
You will not be able to obtain black ink only printing if any cartridges have run out. This is to ensure that air is not sucked into the print head (instead of the ink that prior to the cartridge running out was available) therefore potentially damaging the printer.
In order to function, the printer will require black and colour ink cartridges to be inserted with a certain amount of ink in each cartridge.
