COLOUR LASER - PRINTING BLACK USING COLOUR!!

Question: COLOUR LASER - PRINTING BLACK USING COLOUR!!

Hi Allhope someone more knowledgable can advise - I recently purchased a Lexmark x500n multifunction colour laser printer - I had a big black print job to do excel and word - 2000 pages - i was shocked to see that - ok the black starter cartridge of 2500 pages was nearly empty- fair enough - but all three colour cartridges (1500 page size) were nearly all empty too - I hadn't done any colour printing but when i contacted the manuf they advised that the printer uses colour also to print black!! - it's getting returned to them - but do do all colour lasers do this - obviously this quadruples the costs of printing and has put my costing out of the window!! - any advice would be great - it's a network colour printer, with copier and scanner that I need - a fax would be great but not essential.thanks in advanceTrifly

Answer: COLOUR LASER - PRINTING BLACK USING COLOUR!!

That would pee me off no end. How in God's name can it use colour to create black when there's a black cartridge in there? A cheapo mono laser seems to be your ideal tool. I know nothing about colour laser printers, but is there an option anywhere in the settings to print using only the black cartridge? Does the printer still work if you take out the colour cartridge while printing only black text documents?

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great

Thanks

Answer:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

I have just acquired an HP colour laser jet CP1215 and am happy with it so far.Just a slight worry that when printing photos can I use the same photo paper I used with inkjets or will it somehow mess up the laser printer. I am worried that the inkjet photo paper might melt or something on the rollers when the toner is fused on to the paper.

Answer:Photo printing with a colour laser

I have an OKI colour laser. I find that if I use glossy paper the toner rubs off. It refuses to stick to the surface and with the slightest handling the image is ruined.It didn't damage the printer in any way - but proved to be a failure.I now use 160 gram injet quality super white paper and get good photo results - but not quite as good as my Epson inkjet.

I have a Samsung CLP-300N colour laser printer.I have been asked to print off a load of doubled sided pages, with average text and a small amount of red.Any idea what would be a charge that wouldn't see me out of pocket?Any advice will be thankfully received.

Answer:Cost of printing for a colour laser

Assuming you pay roughly 30 for each colour cartridge with 1000 page 5% cover and the same for black with 2000 page cover - if it were me I would charge 6p per page - hence double sided would be 12p per sheet of paper. This would cover the cost of just the toner and 80 gm paper - wear and tear, electricity and your time are other factors to take into account.Why not ask your local Staples print shop what they would charge as a guide.

I have an Epson Photo 870 Inkjet and it's driving me up the wall.
Admittedly I've had it years and it's done a lot of printing, but now it's getting a bit long in the tooth. Every time I print I have to clean the heads. The kids complain all the time because the quality it not consistent. I have used genuine cost a fortune Epson cartidges and also compatibles, but I think it's past its best.

My Mums old B&W Brother goes on and on, never needs cleaning, looking at and never paper jams.

So, I was thinking of investing in a colour laser printer and thought you lot out there might be able to recommend a good bit of kit.

I'm not too worried about speed.
Something with separate colour cartridges would save cash, not just 1 black 1 colour.
A good quality print, maybe even up to photo standard.
Not too pricey on cartridges and maybe something I can get compatible cartridges for.

I'm sure there are some of you out there with some advice.

I've read a couple of posts already on the subject, but is anybody using a colour laser at the moment, printing around 50 sheets per week. I'm a bit concerned as most of the work I do is around 20% coverage, so would toner cartridges be consumed at an alarming rate? I'm attracted by it because I could really use the speed of them.Thanks

Answer:Colour Laser v Inkjet

A rate of 50 sheets a week doesn't fit very well with your requirement of the last sentence: "I could really use the speed of them."Good colour laser printers are expensive and if I had a requirement as small as yours claims to be, I certainly wouldn't use one. Cheap colour lasers aren't usually worth the desk space the occupy.Nearly all our colour printing is done by a number of inkjet printers. B/W printing (general office stuff) is by cheap mono lasers (which are good value).?d

I want to buy a colour laser printer for home use. It will be used mainly for word documents with the occasional photograph thrown in.

Don't tell me to buy an inkjet because that is not what I want. What I want is a recommendation for a laser printer capable of 1200dpi in A4 format. Preferably something that you have had personal experience with.

This printer will not get a lot of use, but I do not want to wish that I had bought something better as soon as I get it home.

You help in making the right choice is appreciated.
Regards from Graeme Marion.
 

Answer:Which colour laser printer to buy?

A few questions.
What is your budget range? Are we talking something sub $1000? When you say 1200 DPI, do you mean 1200x1200 or 1200x600? 1200x1200 is usually on higher end printers in the $1500-$2000 range.
Do you prefer the output of a specific engine technology? Or does the print engine (LED,Toner,Wax) not matter to you?
Also, what kind of performance do you want in the printer, must it be single pass color machine? Or do you want the high-speed color capabilites of the single pass printers?

Those questions being asked I dug up a few different printers in varying price ranges.

A couple of days ago my OKI C5650 colour laser printer stopped working showing a warning sign "M Toner Empty".As usual - it had been warning me for a few days that I needed to order new toner - but on previous occasions the warning has displayed for 6 weeks or so before the printer was stopped due to empty toner. I was aware of the need to order new toner which I intended to do in a couple of weeks.Not having a spare cartridge - I removed the magenta toner cartridge, gave it a shake and put it back - not really expecting it to rectify the problem. To my surprise the printer sprang to life again and is still working OK a couple of hundred copies later.I have a new cartridge on order - but it will be interesting to see how long the existing one runs OK.Hence the next time a cartridge becomes "empty" I will try the same trick.

Hi,

Can someone please recommend me a colour laser printer for home use? Resolution should be at least 1200 x 1200 dpi. The option to print both sides of the paper would be nice. Multiple paper trays not necessary, nor anything else that will add unnecessary bulk to its size. There should also be connection for Ethernet and USB. Preferable that it uses separate toner cartridges for the different colours, so if one colour runs out then only that colour needs changing rather than the whole lot.

I'm trying to fix a printing problem with an OKI colour laser printer that has now spread to two printers.

On the first printer, the blue is misaligned with the rest of the colours. Replacing the cartridges, re-seating the cartidges and re-installing drivers has not helped.

Moving cartridges between the two identical printers to narrow down the offending component has led to the yellow now being out of alignment on the other printer.

Re-installing drivers has modified the alignment a little, but not fixed it.

Anybody have any experience with fixing this sort of problem?

I had a laser jet printer for many years and got sick of it as it was costing a fortune in ink even though I was hardly using it. The problem I was having was cartridges getting blocked and by time they had been cleaned the ink was running out. Even though I wasn't using it for colour printing it was still costing me on colour cartridges as they needed to be replaced in order for the printer to work.

In the end I was advised that a mono laser printer would be the best option as they use toner instead of ink and as a result they don't suffer from the same problems that inkjet printers do, and as a result the are much cheaper. I have been very happy with my Samsung mono laser printer which I bought for ?30 of amazon, and never at any point suffered from the problem of the print heads needing to be cleaned before I could print.

I am now looking at buying a colour laser printer and would just like a heads up on whether the same is true for colour laser printers that because they use toner the print heads don't need cleaning and you can then not print in either black and white or colour for many months and still not have the problems and costs that you get with inkjet printers.

Answer:Hp1500 Colour laser and Windows 7

The last known drivers for your 1500 were for XP. There were many who went to Vista only to find out there were no Vista drivers for the printer.

Here is a solution that worked in Vista which I;m pretty sure will work for you as well. Place the CD that came with the printer in the drive. Unplug the printer from the PC, run the CD software and when it gets to the part to plug in the printer cancel it and pull the CD from the drive. Plug the printer back in and tun it on, W7 will search for the driver on the web and won't find it and then give you some options. One of these options is to load the driver from your PC, point it to where you placed the software and XP drivers and it should pick up the driver and load. Good Luck....

Im sorry to tell you pcastric, but lexmark's website shows only a 32bit Vista driver. You may want to try it just in case... as many vista drivers work under Win7. The issue here may be the 64 vs 32 bit.

Hi,We're a small office services team with 6-8 people typically in the office.I've calculated that we're printing in the region of about 3000 A4 prints per month, and a rough estimate that we are spending about 3200-3500 per year on consumables for the printer (including toner, drums, fuser, transfer belts and paper).We're currently using an OKI MFP 3520 multi-function printer which seems to go through drums, fuser, transfer belts and toner like there's no tomorrow.At what kind of volumes does it become financially viable to have an all-in-one cost-per-print type contract?We want a nice, fast printer with low consumables costs (doesn't everyone?)All advice appreciated.

I currently use an Inkjet printer and always use compatible toner cartrdges -- PrintRite branded -- as they are much cheaper and give far superior colour reproduction to Epson's own brand.I'm looking at buying a colour laser printer now the prices have fallen so much -- but, having done some calculations on the cost per page of printing with the laser, it actually costs more than the compatible ink.I have seen compatible black toners for a wide range of printers but have not been able to find any colour ones. Does anyone know if they're available or whether they're likely to be in the near future? I suspect that we might start to see them available now that colour lasers have fallen below the 300 mark...?

I have a Samsung CLP 310 colour laser that has developed a problem with fading text on the right side of the page. This is a problem with Black text only the 3 other colours work perfectly. I am still on the original cartridges. I changed to a new black cartridge made no difference. I have wiped down the drum in Alcohol still the same.
Any suggestions on how to fix the problem would be appreciated.

Further to my post yesterday (click here) on colour laser memory, a friend has suggested that a colour laser without postscript support isn't worth having. I intend to use the printer as a personal desktop laser at home, although I do print DTP type work including photographs. Is Postscript going to be that important?!

Answer:Is Postscript support important on a colour laser?

My understanding of Postscript is that it is necessary if you intend to send documents or artwork to a commercial printer for a print run.

Hi all,

Long time reader, first time writer.

I recently purchased a Fuji-Xerox C525a Colour Laser Printer and have had problems making adjustments on the printer preferences screen. It's not that I can't make adjustments, rather that I can't read what the screen says. All of the text is in blocks and vertical lines. I have the latest drivers and software installed but to no avail.

Clicking the help button on the bottom right brings up a message saying:

I am running a Pentium 4, 3.2ghz, 1 gig ram, windows XP.
The printer prints just great, but I would like to be able to make adjustments for print quality etc.
I have attached a screenshot of what i mean.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

I doubt if anyone can answer this unless they have had direct, first hand experience. I am inclined to say yes but I would encourage you to search the net for an answer and try to see what the manufacturer has to say. If having the printer available is extremely important I would wait for an answer and confirmation before you proceed.

Hi there gurus.
My pc doesn?t show certain colour objects in Publisher 2007 and some on-line sites. Overall, the screen colour is very good. I know the fault is localised, because when I switch to Print Preview in Publisher it looks fine and I can see all the object colours. (I only lose the colour with objects, not text)
Also, when I send a copy of a Publisher page to my partner who is on the same PC, it looks fine on her screen.
I?ve tried going to Install/uninstall programs and run the Repair, but to no avail. The guys in my computer shop are clueless without seeing it. Anyone who can help solve this for me is a gem.

Hi, I'm using the Aerolite theme with Aeroglass, and want a consistent colour for the borders. So I set accent colour from background 'off' and choose the colour. Fine so far.

Now that's ok if I log off and on.

But if I sleep or hibernate (not personally ) and then resume, the colour and setting are lost.

I noticed that on resuming, the border colour is present until the 'Please wait' screen appears, after which these settings are lost.

Try cleaning the cartridge I think you can do this within the tool box.Failing that if you have been using the other colours a lot you will find it is empty and just needs replacing. It may be showing 50% as you still have blue in the tank.

Question: colour printing

I have tried to print colour photos on photo paper using a HP5652 I get a yellow picture. Yet if I use plain paper I get a proper picture. I am using a photo ink cartridge as well as the colour cartridge. Any suggestions I have tried in vain using different settings and photo paper.

Answer:colour printing

From what you describe it could be the paper'setting on the printer or some close to it.If you visualize it for one moent youet set up the printer to print either on plain paper or photo paper- you do dont you?If you dont investigate the printer set up protocols.Assuming you do- then as far as the printer is concerned, and assuming all colours are workingas you infer they are[good picture on plain paper]then it would not matter too much if you fed the print a shredded wheat packet- it would not affect ink delivery.By the by the best mode for colour photos, not with standing the paper type or brand - Ink Jet Transparancy - it is also very economical with the ink.

Answer:colour red not printing

The print head nozzle for Red is probably plugged up. Are you using genuine Kodak ink? Do you use the printer regularly? That means every few days.Try running the cleaning process a couple of times. Looks like the printhead is removable. If the above doesn't work then remove the printhead and run it under hot water in the kitchen sink. You will see the different color ink come out by moving the water stream. Rubbing alcohol can also be useful to clean the bottom of the printhead. Use Q-tips.

Answer:Colour printing

Adjust your monitor first using a program like click here then try again. You may have to alter the printer settings for colour as well. The type of paper you print on and the ink will also make a difference. You will never get a perfect match as one is reflected and the other transmitted colour.

Hi all,I have a Lexmark PRO901 here which is refusing to print in colour. I have installed brand new colour cartridges which are definitely seated properly. The printer is reading that the cartridges were full when I put them in, and after I tried printing and photocopying a few things the levels have gone down, which I'm guessing is inaccurate considering not a single drop of colour is on the paper. I have updated the firmware to the latest version and that has done no good.

I decided to try the 'black ink refill kit' instead of buying an expensive cartridge, only to find now my printer only prints in colour and when i try and print in black, it prints in light purple!?
i have installed the vista software from the HP site, then eventually found the manual online and worked out how to clean the printer head, did that and wiped off the cartridges and their holders, got all excited, tried to print and it all printed in light purple again
I just wondered if anyone had any ideas as to why this might be doing this, do i just give up with the idea of refilling the old cartridge and go and buy an expensive new one??

I have also just checked the ink levels on the computer and the colour says full, but the black says empty??
I definitly filled the black up..
any help would be much appreciated..
 

Answer:HP 1317 all in one only printing in colour..

The reason the printer says the black cartridge is empty is that it uses the chip in the cartridge to estimate ink use. It doesn’t measure the ink directly. With my old HP there was a procedure online for resetting the ink level without a chip resetter, but I have no idea whether the procedure still works. http://www.misterinkjet.com/hpreset.htm

I refilled HP printers for years with good results. The color was more difficult with HP, but the black was a snap as long as you didn’t puncture the inner bladder on the cartridge. I would suspect the ink you used. It has to be a pigmented black for the large black cartridge. If you use a dye based black meant for a photo printer you might end up with purple appearing text.

It might also be mixing colors to get black. My HP drivers all had a “black only” sub heading under grayscale. That setting made it use only the large black pigmented cartridge for everything. Graphics were crappy because of the low resolution of the pigmented cartridge. But it saved the colors for printing where I didn’t need good graphics. You might check to see whether your driver has that setting. If everything is still purple you have problems with the ink.

I have used MIS ink for years in both my HPs and Canons with very good results.

I think you can leave the scanner out of the argument.Something is out of joint either with the parameters of the saved file or the printer's software.Assuming you don't have an "out of ink" problem check the size and saved format of the file.Again: Has anything else been changed recently?If its not the file, and not an ink problem you may have to re-install the printer drivers, but do check that it will print Windows testpage first.
