How to setup grayscale printing for HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One printer - E709n?

Does anyone know how to setup grayscale printing for HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One printer - E709n?

 

Is there a way to make this printer to only print Black ink instead of using the Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow inks together to produce the black ink?

 

Need help.

 

Thanks.

Please read this post then provide some details.  What operating system?  For Windows 7 you would click on the Features tab, select Print in Grayscale and then select Black ink only, Apply.

 

Be aware that some color ink will still be used to keep the printhead from clogging.  See this page for information on how ink is used.  (The Officejet 6500 is an IIC printer in the terminology of that page.)

By the way, the information I gave above does not apply for printing on photo paper.  The pigmented black ink is not compatible with photo paper and black ink will not be used when photo paper is selected.

Hi Bob,

 

I have Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 3 as my operating system.

I have connected my HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One printer - E709n using a USB cable to the back of my Dell desktop tower.

 

Do you have any more questions that I need to address?

 

Please reply soon.

 

Thanks.

How to setup grayscale printing for HP Officejet 6500 Wireless All-In-One printer - E709n?

Hi

 

HP Officejet 6500A Plus E710n-z

 

I recently bought 2 of the above printers for office and home use.

 

The problem I have is setting preferences to only print in black or Grayscale as I dont print in color often.

 

Clicked on "Devices and Printers" to change settings under "Printer Actions" / "Customize your printer" ..

 

But I cannot seem to find the section where I can set printers default setting to only print in black.

 

Please if anyone can help and explain step by step what I have to do Ill appreciate it.

 

Thanks...

What operating system? For Windows 7 do the following: click Start, Devices and Printers, right click on the Officejet 6500, select Printing Defaults, Paper/Quality, Media, select Plain Paper, Apply, Advanced and then set Print in Grayscale to Black Only, OK, OK.

We have an HP 6500 Wireless All-in-One printer - E709n-z. It won't print in black even though I have selected Print in Grayscale, Black only, and also, Print All Text in Black Enable. Any ideas please?
