Please somebody tell me how to fix my problems.

HP ENVY 7640 e-All-in-One Printer series
macOS 10.12 Sierra

I have been trying for more than a week to get my 7640 printer to only print in BLACK INK ONLY as I have it set up to do.

When I print a document in, BLACK INK ONLY, that has any color in it for some reason the COLOR is printed.

I have requested help here twice last week but none of the answers solved the problems.  I asked for more help again and

have not received a single response.

I also asked why the printer is set to print 95% size and I am unable to change that.

I am using a MAC computer and running  macOS 10.13 high Sierra.

The printer is new just out of the box 10 days ago.


Please someone tell me how to fix my problems.
