Re: how do i change my setting on my hp officejet 4620 to print black only

dohr1,

 

This is done in the properties window for the printer.  There are a few ways to get there.

If you want to get there from the program you are using with Windows click File > Print > select the printer > Properties (may be Preferences, depends on the software being used) > Advanced > click the Print in Grayscale drop down menu and select Black Ink Only then click ok.

 

The online manual might help also.

I have the same problem.  

I went to File > Print > select the printer (I select HP officejet 4620) then there's no properties or preferences.  Under printer is presets.

 

I bought HP officejet 4620 today.  This is the first time I used it.  I really really do not like it.  It very noisy and slow.  It's much slower than my 8 years old  HP C3150.  I am thinking about returning 4620 tomorrow.  

 

Does HP stil make C3150?  Should I spend extra money and get a better HP printer?  If so, what do you recommend?

Kenneth:

 

I went ahead and followed your directions to the letter and yet I am still getting color prints or worse yet, blank sheets now that the color cartridges are empty. I replaced my first brand new black ink cartridge with a second brand new cartridge so that is not the problem. Any other suggestions?

Re: how do i change my setting on my hp officejet 4620 to print black only

I want my printer to always print in black only, on draft quality. I have followed these steps and my printer automatically reverts to printing in full colour, high quality, every time I print a new document. I've tried changing the settings to 'Black Only' and 'Draft' from both the Devices & Printers page and the print box itself. Neither lasts for more than one document.

 

It is far too time consuming to repeatedly change the settings every time I print something, I have to print around 70 separate documents every morning!

 

I'm using Windows 8 if that helps.

 

Thanks!
