Do you have color ink? If you do, switch to color print and it should be able to print using color ink. It won't be completely black, more of a really dark grey. It worked with my printer the other day.
Uninstall the driver, turn the printer off, pull the cartridge out, turn the printer on with the "door" up and the cartridge out, turn the printer back off, then reinstall the cartridge and turn the printer back on. It will clean/self-align, then reinstall the drivers.
Then go to print your paper, and set the print quality to draft.
I switched to laser printers when I was in my senior year of highschool (2005). I got two from work during a company upgrade.. they were out of toner, and they wanted to switch all of the printers in the store to HP 1320 laser printers, so they told me to throw those two into the dumpster. Yeah... they went into the trunk of my car instead.
I bought one toner cartridge for one of the printers (this was in 2005, remember) and put the other printer in my closet for spare parts (it had a good drum). I used the printer for the rest of my high school days, and for my entire college career... and I never had to replace the toner. I'm still using the same one now.
Inkjet printers are useless to me. I really don't need to print in color. I store my pictures as data, if possible. It does me little good to have a box of photos shoved into the back of a closet. If I absolutely have to print a picture or something like that, I'll take it to wal mart and print it on their machines. It's cheap.
I could never use a color inkjet printer enough... with the one I owned, the cartridges would dry up before I could use all the ink. I just didn't print very much. Every time I went to print, I had to buy a $40 cartridge because the one I had would be dry. To hell with all that.
Screw it. We tried killing it to boost activity and it didn't work.
The forum is dying.
I've been around for a long time, even met a few other members here back when we actually had more than a handful of active people.

It is with a heavy heart and face covered in tears I must announce last night one of our own passed away. No details yet. FOr some back story. Dennis has been my friend since 2004. We always had jabs at each other. He was a huge part of this forum. We met on this forum and have kept daily...

I'm assuming that a lot of you are like me, spending a bunch of time on CarGurus looking for ways to waste more money. Just thought i'd share with ya'll a website i found that combines them all into one. https://garagerecon.com .. you're welcome, try not to waste too much time
