HP AIO F2280, only printing using one set of options SOLVED

#1 Post by Eadwine Rose » Tue Mar 04, 2014 2:36 pm

It works, so I never paid much attention to it, but now that my other printer has gone heavenways I want this printer to be a bit more versatile. I would like it to print in black draft as well, and in normal black.


Currently I can only get it to work using the cups driver (HP Deskjet f2200 Series, hpcups 3.13.5), and selecting print quality normal color and tricolor only. Of course this prints in color, and I don't always want that. HPijs is not giving me much either where black is concerned.

I cannot change these options to say draft black or a blank page gets spat out (it pretends to print but nothing on the paper).
Ink cartridges are not empty.

Does anyone have a clue as to what I can try?

That's a big claim, Eadwine. We rented a lodge last year and I came into the kitchen to find my wife & daughter-in-law struggling to get the electric kettle to switch on. I have learned not to intervene until asked, so had to wait a minute or so. Then I walked over, lifted the kettle off the worktop and placed it on the power base. Bingo!

The stupid part is admitting to it.

It is called "guts". Apparently you don't have it as you would never admit to it ;)

You need not worry. It's intact.

That's a relief. I wouldn't want to wake up one morning and have it be gone.
