Logitech C920 Webcam Mac – Mojave Compatible

Another computer issue in the world order. This time an individual had a question about Macintosh computers and webcam compatibility. Here is the original initial question verbatim below.

I need help getting my new Logitech C920 web cam to work.

This individual was using a Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. They had purchased an application from the Apple Applicatin store called “Web Cam Settings”. What a fucking waste of money.

Anyways, they had watched another Youtube video to try and help them install the Logitech C920 on their Apple Macintosh mini computer with Apple Macintosh Mojave 10.14 operating system installed. This is what solved this conundrum.

You can download and install the webcam software from the following link.

They were then able to use their Logitech C920 webcam with their Apple Macintosh mini computer. When it comes to Logitech web cameras and Apple Macintosh computers, it can become a crap shoot. It really depends on the exact model of Logitech web camera you have.

Also, important is what Apple Macintosh operating system you are using. You do NOT necessarily want to assume that your Logitech web camera will work with your Apple Macintosh computer. Also, you do NOT want to necessarily assume that the operating system you are using on your Apple Macintosh computer will be compatible with your Logitech web camera.

You could always first find out what web camera model you have or wish to purchase. Then find out the exact operating system you are using. This example this individual was using Apple Macintosh 10.14 Mojave.

Then you want to verify on Logitech’s website whether or not your Logitech web camera will work or not. Sometimes there will be a software download available. However, depending on the exact operating system and Logitech we camera model, there may NOT be any software download available for your Apple Macintosh computer.

Also, you want to first install the software onto your Macintosh computer. Then once that is accomplished successfully, you connect the web camera to a Universal Serial Bus cable on your Macintosh computer. Finally, you open up a video software application similar to Facetime, Skype, etc. to test your web camera.

Communication Error Check if the Computer is Connected – Epson Fix

Another printer problem to solve from a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This one deals with a communication error on a printer. Here is the original initial request quoted verbatim.

Hi. I have an Epson printer WF-3640. I have issues scanning documents to my Apple MacBook, because repeatedly there is a message that appears on my Epson screen saying “Communication error. Check if the computer is connected”. Do you know how this can be fixed?Initially I thought it was the USB cable, but I changed that too and it didn’t fix the “connectivity” issue. Please advise.

This individual owned a Macintosh with Sierra 10.12 operating system installed. Remove all instances of your printer software from “Applications”. Remove all instances of your printer from “Printers & Scanners”.

Download and install the Epson WF-3640 printer software. When it comes to troubleshooting printers, one of the first questions I ask or try to answer is where is the printer error appearing on. Is the error displayed on the printer itself, your computer or both.

In this instance the “Communication error. Check if the computer is connected” error message appeared on the liquid crystal display of the printer. This individual tried some troubleshooting of their own, by disconnecting and reconnecting the Universal Serial Bus cable.

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician Now and Solve Your Computer Problem.

My additional tip is to disconnect the Universal Serial Bus cable from both the printer and the computer. Some times just disconnecting the printer cable in this manner will fix printing problems. Also, as an added bonus tip, you can follow these instructions.

Power off your Epson printer. Disconnect the power cable from the wall outlet. Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus printer cable from both your printer and computer.

Press and hold the power button on your printer for 30-60 seconds. Leave your Epson printer disconnected from any power source for 5-10 minutes. Reconnect the Universal Serial Bus cable and power cable to your printer.

Power on your printer and see if it will now print. Printers can be real finicky and a pain in the ass at times. However, these three tips I gave you often times fixes printer problems.

Also, paying attention to where the actual error, if any is given, appears can be a hint in your printer troubleshooting. One additional bonus tip is on Macintosh operating system, you can just drag the printer folder in this case, Epson, to the trash can to remove the software from “Applications”. Some times printer software installs do not include a removal tool or when you run them the do not properly remove the printer software.

Also, you may want to empty the trash can after dragging the Epson folder. I have noticed on at least one occasion where emptying the trash can fixed a problem, where each time I went to reinstall the printer software, the same old problem occurred. What fixed this endless loop, was emptying the Macintosh operating system trash can.

Computers can be real finicky and weird at times. Hopefully, you were able to fix your Epson communication error problem. These instructions were written for a Macintosh computer with Macintosh operating system Sierra 10.12 installed for an Epson WF-3640 printer.

However, you can use these instructions and tips as a basis point for troubleshooting the same or similar error on different brand and model printers, even on Linux and Microsoft operating systems.

Install HP Printer Software Without CD

I received another question on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This time an individual was not able to get their printer working on their tablet computer. Here is the initial request quoted verbatim.

I’m trying to connect to my wireless printer, an HP OfficeJet 4630, with an Ematic EWT832NS 2 in 1 Windows tablet. I get a message to insert the CD that came with the printer into the computer (tablet) which doesn’t have a CD drive. The tablet appears to see the printer, but I can’t get the printer to print.

Whenever you are not able to install a printer via a CD-ROM or DVD you most likely will be able to download the driver and or software for your printer. This individual owned a Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 4630 printer. Also, they were using an Ematic tablet computer with Microsoft Windows 10 operating installed.

Download and install the Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 4630 printer software from the following link. Please do NOT connect the printer to your computer until instructed to do so by the software installation. Once you download that software to your computer you just double click it to begin the printer installation.

My experiences with Hewlett Packard printer installs, is to NOT connect your printer to your computer first. In this instance a tablet computer without a CD-ROM optical drive. You want to wait until the installation prompts you to connect your printer to your computer.

If you connect your printer to your computer first, Microsoft Windows operating system will attempt to load a default printer driver that may or may not work. Also, when you try to install the Hewlett Packard printer driver, the installation gets confused as it detects a driver already installed. The printer installation program may or may not install the correct original equipment manufacture printer driver.

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician Now and Solve Your Computer Problem.

This may cause you to not be able to print, even after installing the correct driver. You will be prompted to select how you want to connect your printer to your computer. You will have two or three choices, USB cable, Ethernet, or Wireless.

This individual had a wireless printer. You want to make certain that you have connected your wireless printer to your wireless router network. You will need to know your SSID and password. Once you have successfully connected your Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 4630 to your wireless router network, you will be able to print to it.

Hewlett Packard printer installs are notoriously slow according to my own experiences as a real world computer technician. I would allow at least 30 minutes to an hour for the installation of the software to complete. Once the Hewlett Packard printer installation detects your printer successfully it will begin installing the software.

Most if not all printers I have supported in the last 10 years or so, almost always have a download available on their original equipment manufacture brand websites. Microsoft and Apple operating systems are almost always supported. You should be able to find a printer driver at the very least for most newer printers.

I always install the full suite of software including the driver. This can take quite a bit of time. However, you will be able to possibly copy, fax, print, and scan from your printer, depending on how many features it includes. The all in one Hewlett Packard printers usually include copy, fax, printing, and scanning capability.

You may be asked to register your printer. Also, you may be asked to enter fax information. You may or may not be able to skip these information requests.

Your printer software will finally complete the installation process. You may be asked to sign up to Hewlett Packard instant ink program. This voluntary and you do NOT need to sign up in order to print.

You will still be able to purchase printer cartridges yourself in order to print. These instructions were written for an Ematic 2 in 1 tablet computer with Microsoft Windows 10 operating system to print on a Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 4630 printer. However, you could certainly use these instructions and tips, as a basis point, to install printer software on any computer without an optical drive on most Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh operating systems.

Install External Hard Drive Windows 10

I received another computer question on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This one deals with using an external hard drive on a personal computer. Here is the original question quoted verbatim.

I have a 1TB WD Passport Ultra, Metal Edition that I purchased in April 2017 to provide a backup of my PC hard drive. S/N xxxxxxxxxxxx. There is a sticker on the back with my name on it and the number xxxxx-xxxxxxxxx.

This individual owned two Dell computers. A Dell Inspiron 620 and Dell Inspiron 3670. The Dell Inspiron 3670 was brand new. This individual wanted to use their one terabyte Western Digital Passport Ultra metal edition on their new computer.

All you have to do is connect your external hard drive to your Microsoft windows 10 computer and then format it. Open “File Explorer”. Right click the external drive and choose “Format”.

When purchasing external hard drives, you should first make certain that the one you want to purchase is compatible with your operating system. Some external hard drives are compatible with both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh operating systems. Some external hard drives are only compatible with one operating system, Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh operating system.

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician Now and Solve Your Computer Problem.

You can perform a quick Internet search and find out what operating systems the brand and model of external hard drive is compatible with. If you are shopping at a retail store, look on the outside packaging to see what operating systems this external hard drive is compatible with. This can save you time and possibly money.

Your external hard drive may already be pre formatted. All you would need to do is hook up your external hard drive to your Windows 10 computer and then access it like any other hard drive. However, some external hard drives require that software installed on the drive detects your operating system.

Some external hard drives you have to format the device yourself before you can use them. This is where planning ahead and knowing what you need to do to get your external hard drive functioning could save you time and money. When you do format an external hard drive, just make certain you are formatting the correct device.

You certainly do not want to format the hard drive that has your operating system installed on. Once you do format your external hard drive or are able to access it, then you can read and write to this drive like any other removable media. You can use it to back up your important data.

You could even have automatic backups configured. When in doubt, try educate yourself first about the actual external hard drive that you are wanting to purchase. Purchasing an external hard drive to back up your data is a step in the right direction.

I lecture quite often about how important it is to back up your important data. These instructions were written for Microsoft Windows 10 operating system and a Western Digital Passport Ultra external hard drive. However, you could certainly use these instructions as a basis point for other brand and model external hard drives on Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Printing From a Chromebook – on an Epson Printer

I received a question about being able to print on an Epson printer from a chromebook computer. Printing on a chromebook can be a pain in the ass at times. However, with an Epson printer you may be able to print without installing and drivers and or software on your chromebook computer.

Here is the initial question quoted verbatim.

I need help with my ability to print.

This individual did NOT tell me what printer brand and model they owned. Also, they were going to connect their printer via a Universal Serial Bus cable. You would just connect your printer to your chromebook with a Universal Serial Bus cable and then use Google Cloud printing.

You will need to login with a Google account. If you login with Youtube and or Gmail, you already have a Google account. If you do NOT have a Google account, you will need to create one.

If you want to print wireless then you will first need to place your printer on the same network as your chromebook. Your IP addresses will be on the same sub network. For example your Epson printer will have an Internet Protocol address of 10.0.0.1 and your chromebook will have an Internet Protocol address of 10.0.0.2.

Need Online Computer Technical Support? Ask a Computer Technician Now and Solve Your Computer Problem.

You will need to know the exact Internet Protocol address from your Epson printer. Then you will enter in this address into a web browser. For example type in 10.0.0.1 into a web browser address bar.

Now select the “Google Cloud Print Services” option. If you do NOT see the Google Cloud Print Services option then try turning off your Epson printer and turning it back on. Once you see Google Cloud Print Services option, click on “Register”.

You will need to agree to the Google usage advisory by placing a check mark in the box next to it. Now you will click on “OK” that will launch the sign in page in a separate window. Type in your Google account username and password and click on “Sign in”. If you do NOT have a Google account, you can go ahead and create one now by clicking on “Sign up For a Google Account”.

Finally, you want to click on “Finish Printer Registration”. You should now be able to print. I would print a test page now. You can print from your chromebook by selecting or clicking on a “Print” option from an application.

For example a web browser. Your Epson printer is now actually linked to your Google account. This allows you to print from any Google Android, Apple device, chromebook, or computer with Internet access.

Printing with a Universal Serial Bus cable is so much easier. Just connect the Universal Serial Bus cable to your printer with the square end. Connect the flat end of the Universal Serial Bus cable to your chromebook.

Then you can print from any application that has a print function. Universal Serial Bus printer cables are not that expensive. You might even be able to find one at a thrift store.

What Type of USB Cable Does a Canon Printer Use

I received another computer request. This one dealt with hardware which is at times more of a rarity. Here is the initial original request verbatim:

“Where is the USB cable connector on a Pixma MX922? I just bought the printer and trying to connect to my laptop.”

This individual had purchased a Canon Pixma MX922 printer. Canon just like every other major printer Manufacturer that I know uses standard universal serial bus printer cables. Here is my initial original response:

The universal serial bus connection should be on the back right hand side if looking at the printer from the back. It should be near where you plug in the power cable. Also, Canon suggests to install the software and driver first and then connect the printer via universal serial bus when prompted to.

That is a printer universal serial bus connection. A printer cable universal serial bus connection is square not standard flat shaped. Did you receive a printer universal serial bus cable with the printer?

One end of a printer universal serial bus cable is flat standard the other end is square. Please look at the image I have attached. This request was one of just ignorance.

Those new to printers may have assumed that printer cables have to flat standard connections. Universal serial bus printer cables have always had one end that is square that I remember. This end connects directly to your printer.

What I find stingy is that Canon did NOT include one with this Canon Pixma MX922 printer. Canon is not the only major printer manufacturer that does NOT include printer cables. I am pretty certain back in the day when I purchased both a Hewlett Packard and Canon inkjet printers, that a printer cable was included.

Technically these printer cables are known as universal serial bus a/b cables. A is used to describe the flat end connector, which you will see on more standard universal serial bus cables. B is used to describe the square four corner end connector, which is an average computer user is accustomed to with printers.

This allows the universal serial bus to become standard. Most computers even in this day have universal serial bus connectors. Printers then are manufactured with the universal serial bus B type square connector.

Inkjet and laser printers are supported with this type of cable. Office copiers and large commercial grade printers as well as all in one devices use these types of cables. Back before the universal serial bus cables were manufactured printers had serial bus connectors.

Computers also had serial bus connectors. These types of connectors were quite a bit larger.

Erase Process Has Failed MAC – Troubleshooting Steps

Another computer problem, this time on Apple Macintosh operating system. Here is the original initial request:

“Time Machine. 10.13.5 (17F77). Today.”

Here is my initial original response:

Are you having problems with Time Machine backups on your Macintosh? Time Machine should already be installed. Browse to “System Preferences” by clicking the Apple icon in the top menu.

Select the “Time Machine” icon from within “System Preferences”. Click on “Select Backup Disk”. Choose your hard disk that you want to backup data to.

You can enable automatic backups by selecting “Backup Automatically”. Continue on until Time Machine begins backing up data. The first backup may take a considerable longer period of time to complete.

Did disk utility find a problem with your hard disk? You could try erasing your disk. If you have any important files, move them from your backup disk.

Then erase the disk and see if Time Machine backup will now work. You could restart your Macintosh and try to reformat backup disk. Also, you could power off your Macintosh.

Then disconnect the backup disk. Now start your Macintosh and hook up backup disk and see if you can reformat it. I received numerous errors with this external hard disk.

I was NOT able to dismount this external drive. I received this error:

“Erase process has failed. Click “Done” to continue.”

Another error I received was this one:

“The volume can’t be ejected because it’s currently in use.”

I could NOT erase this external drive. I had to use the terminal in Macintosh operating system 10.13 which is High Sierra. However, I could not dismount this external hard drive with this command:

umount /Volumes/Time Machine Backups

I tried a different command but received the same failure:

diskutil unmount /Volumes/Time Machine Backups

This was one fucking stubborn external hard drive. I used the following commands to finally get this external hard drive to dismount:

ls /Volumes/

lsof | grep /Volumes/Time Machine Backups

There was an Apple Macintosh process that locked this external hard drive. The previous command shows all processes specific to the external hard drive. Now you want to kill all processes that are accessing the external hard drive:

killall mds

You can use the Apple Macintosh “Activity Monitor” to end all processes as well. The activity monitor has a graphical user interface. Finally, I was able to dismount this external hard drive with the following command:

diskutil unmount /Volumes/Time Machine Backups

I was able to use “First Aid” in “Disk Utility”. The first aid fixed the external hard drive problem. This allowed the client to keep their existing Time Machine Backups and continue with their automated backups.

You can find disk utility in “Applications” via the Finder tool. These instructions were written for an Apple Macintosh computer with Apple Macintosh operating system 10.13 which is High Sierra installed.

Brother HL-L2395DW Printer – MAC OS Compatibility

I received a bit of a different information technology request. Normally, I deal with fixing computer problems. This request was more or less research related.

Here is the original initial request:


I just purchased Brother HL L2395DW printer, but notice on box it is compatible with MACOS v10.10.5. My Mac is OSX 10.9.5 (Safari). I am afraid to open box until I know if it will be compatible…will appreciate your advice.

I haven’t unpacked it yet, just bought it and don’t want to try to install unless I know it will be compatible.

Actually, MAC OS X 10.9.5 is Mavericks. I digress back to this blog post. Here is my initial response to their request:

On the Brother HL L2395DW support page they list four MACOS X downloads:

* 10.10
* 10.11
* 10.12
* 10.13

No guarantees the printer will work with older Macintosh operating systems. Let me try to find some printers that are compatible out of the box for 10.9. Are you wanting a Brother brand printer?

I found this list of Canon compatible printers with OS X 10.9. I will look for a list for Brother if available. You are welcome.

I found this list of possible Brother printers that are compatible with OS 10.9. Scroll to the bottom to see list of printers. I found another list.

This one you can use to find any type of Brother printer compatible with OS 10.9. Click on “Click here to display all models covered by this answer”. What is your current printer?

One problem might be that brand new printers might not support OS 10.9. You might be able to find older printers that are still in their new box. Not sure if that would suffice.

I found your Epson WF-3640 on Amazon. There are some new ones available. Yes, Macintosh upgrades are not perfect.

If you do upgrade you will need your Apple ID and Macintosh administrator password. Also, I would definitely backup your data before you upgrade. You might want to do some routine maintenance before you upgrade.

Clean up your Mac and make sure you don’t have any problems with it now. Also, make sure to install any available updates before upgrading. This blog post was written for a Macintosh computer with Macintosh operating system X 10.9.5 Mavericks installed.

This is an example perhaps of what you may encounter when your technology devices fail. This individual was willing to return this brand new Brother HL-L2395DW printer for one that would be compatible with an aging operating system. Quite often you can find older technology including printers brand new in their box.

A quick Internet search for Epson WF-3640 resulted in an Amazon listing. There were multiple printers being sold as new. This is a learning lesson in knowing what technology you have acquired and attention to detail.

Had this customer opened the box, who knows what other pitfalls would have followed? A fifteen percent restocking perhaps at the very least? Try to always research your technology purchases in advance if possible.

Do NOT over look replacing failing peripherals with the same model. If you are happy with it like this customer, then there is no reason why you can’t continue using it. Hardware compatibility with a specific operating system is quite often over looked.

HP DeskJet 2652 Printer Software – For MAC Instructions

Another request on this third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. This time I received another printer request. I only support printers in the sense of helping individuals hooking them up and installing software.

Here is the original request:

“I am trying to connect a printer and I am not sure where I have to go to connect. The error message I get icy can’t open the application Driver Update-setup (1) exe because Microsoft Windows applications are not supported on OS X. Does this mean that this printer will not go with this computer.

I am not computer savvy at all.”

This individual did NOT care if they were able to print over universal serial bus cable or wireless. Also, they were using an Apple Macintosh computer with MAC OS X 10.10 operating system. They were trying to connect a HP DeskJet 2652 printer.

Here is my response:

Click on the Apple Macintosh logo above. Select “About this MAC”. I need to know what version you have installed.

For example Apple MACOS 10.11. If not you can browse to this link below and it should automatically detect what Macintosh operating system you have installed. You can install your HP DeskJet 2652 printer software.

You have to download and install a driver for your MAC otherwise your printer will not work. If you noticed I asked them what version of Macintosh operating system they had installed. Hewlett Packard’s website is designed to automatically detect what operating system you have installed.

However, with individuals whom admit they are not computer savvy, it can save quite a bit of time and headaches to just provide a direct download link. Speaking of direct links, if you have Macintosh OS X 10.10 otherwise known as Yosemite, you can download software from this HP DeskJet 2652 printer software link. You should be able to just click on that link and you should be prompted to save it to your computer.

This individual had a bit of a problem I think knowing where to find this downloaded software. I provided some instructions with an image. All you have to do is click on the link to download.

It is only an eight megabytes sized file.

https://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/software12/HP_Quick_Start/osx/Applications/HP_Easy_Start.app.zip

You can use “Finder” to find your downloads. Finder is located in your Dock down below. Look for your “Downloads” folder.

Once you open up Finder you will see your Macintosh username on the left hand side. Click on your username to expand the contents. You should see a “Downloads” folder.

Refer to this image I just uploaded. This Macintosh user whom was NOT computer savvy was able to follow my instructions and successfully install the software driver for their HP DeskJet 2652 printer. They reported to me that they were able to print in color.

If you are NOT computer savvy there is no reason why you cannot install printer software. Here are some additional tips. Generally, I noticed with Hewlett Packard printers, that most times you must install the software first and then connect your printer.

Also, with my experiences as a computer technician most Hewlett Packard printers require you to install a driver from CD-ROM or an Internet download. Microsoft Windows does have a few printer drivers that come with their operating systems. However, most times with my experience most Hewlett Packard printers will NOT work out of the box so to speak.

I do NOT have nearly as much experience dealing with installing Hewlett Packard printers on Macintosh computers. Obviously, this was one of those cases, where you cannot just plug in your printer and begin printing in color no less. If in doubt I think it is always product to read your quick start guide that comes with Hewlett Packard printers.

This should NOT stop you from learning how to install printer software and or drivers on any computer operating system even Linux. Hopefully, this blog post helped you install HP DeskJet 2652 printer software on your Macintosh computer.

HP OfficeJet 6700 Installation Software – Instructions

I received another request on a third party website where I earn supplemental income answering computer and technology related questions. Here is the initial request:

“I don’t believe it’s connected to the computer and I can’t find the disk and the printer is not listed when trying to connect it.”

This individual was referring to their Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 6700 Premium printer. My initial warning to you is that when it comes to Hewlett Packard printers, most times you do NOT want to hook up the printer to your computer first. You want to wait until you install the printer software suite.

The installation will prompt you when to hook up your printer. Here is the remainder of my response:

What operating system are you using? For example Apple Macintosh, Microsoft Windows 7, 8, or 10. You can download the complete printer software from this HP OfficeJet 6700 installation software link.

That web page should automatically detect your operating system. If that web page does not detect your correct operating system, then click on the “Change” button, choose your correct operating system and then click on that “Change” button again. Once you download this software to your computer, you will want to double click the file and proceed with the installation.

Wait until the installation asks you to connect your printer. This individual had a computer with Microsoft Windows 7 operating system installed. If you have Microsoft Windows 7 operating system installed you can download the HP OfficeJet 6700 installation software from that direct download link.

This individual confused me to a certain extent. They wanted to skip the Fax portion of this software. I did NOT know if they wanted to skip the installation of any faxing software module or skipping the setup of a Fax number.

I think when it comes to Hewlett Packard printers you cannot skip the configuration of a Fax number. I could be wrong. At the very least you could enter in a dummy number.

For example:

123-456-7890

Also, the Hewlett Packard printer software is one complete suite. You cannot remove just one piece of software for just faxing.

“If you only want the drivers (without the Full Software Suite), it is available as a separate download named HP Officejet 6700 Premium e-All-in-One Printer series – H711 Basic Driver.”

I don’t think you have a choice. Only option is to install the basic Hewlett Packard printer driver only and not the full suite. This individual was able to successfully install this software and I thought I was done being a serf for the evening.

Low and behold another problem arose. This time they received a warning that they needed to replace their color printer cartridges. They wanted to know if they could print with just their black printer cartridge also known as gray scale.

The answer to this is actually a paradox. Yes and no. Yes, you can print in gray scale only with this Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 6700 premium printer.

However, your color printer cartridges must NOT become empty. If they are low with toner than yes you can. I have no fucking idea why the discrepancy, but I did find this documented on an official Hewlett Packard web page.

These are the instructions to change the print settings to print with black ink only. This is known as gray scale. You may have to change your print settings every time you print, in order to print in gray scale.

Click “Print” in the software program you want to print from. Select your Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 6700 premium printer from the list of available printers. Look for and open the “Printer Properties” dialog box.

This can be called “Printer Properties”, “Options”, “Printer Setup”, “Printer”, or “Preferences”. Click on the “Features” tab. You want to click the “gray scale” drop down menu.

Now click on “Black Ink Only”. You can use even less black ink by selecting the “Draft” setting. Click on “OK”. Now you want to click “Print” to print a test page.

This individual was now able to print successfully on their Hewlett Packard OfficeJet 6700 premium printer. These instructions were written primarily for Microsoft Windows 7 operating system, but can certainly be used as a basis point for other Microsoft Windows operating systems.
