My printer was working fine last night until it suddenly started printing grey instead of black half way through a print job.
The setting is not on greyscale
Ink is not empty
I have cleaned the print head several times
There are no error messages displaying
And tried switching both computer (Mac OS X 10.6.8) and printer on and off
........any ideas what I might try next to get it printing black again??

print a test page from the print first. This will tell you if the issue is hardware or software.
if the test page is not printing black then you are either out of black ink or the print head needs replacing
