Re: Change printer settings from color to black and white

Dan, I have an old desktop and an HR OfficeJet Pro 8500A Premium - A910n.  I have Windows XP Pro Ver. 5.1 (Service Pack 3) for my OS.  I also want to conserve ink, but accidental printing of documents with small colored items, e.g., e-mail and web page addresses, has finally depleted my cyan (blue) cartridge.  I'd like to know if there's a way to get get my A910n to print when any or all of the colored cartridges (i.e., yellow, cyan or magenta) are depleted.  All I really need is printing in black and white.  Thanks, Jay

Re: Change printer settings from color to black and white

Hi
Which printer model do you have?
If go into print properties you should have an option for printing in grayscale / black only.
