hi just cant find out whats the problem with my printer. just can not print any text that is any other color than clack. before it would print any color text with no prob. i print only black and white. can anyone suggest what would be the prob?

Either you are out of colour ink or the printer is set to print in black and white or the heads are clogged and it needs cleaned.

i never had a colour ink so the printeris ofcourse set to print black and white. its always been like that and all was ok.maybe the heads as you said could be the prob. but if they are clogged whay black is text printed ok? could that be some seting in properties?

It's a Old Printer, Is there a colour cart in the printer?

And as you have not printed Colour in a long time I would say it needs a new Colour Print Head for the colour cart

I'm a bit confused here, correct me if I'm wrong. What you are saying is you have the printer set to print in black and white, it will print text ok but if you try to print something else, say a picture of something, it will not print even in black and white, is that right?

exactly thats right and before i could print anythink

now i can only print black text

Ok, you have the printer set to print in black and white, but whatever program you are using also has the option of altering the way something prints so check that.
As an example. If I print this page I'm on now in Internet Explorer and I've altered the settings for the printer in Internet Explorer to print in colour it wouldn't print. Does that make sense to you? I'm not all that great at explaining sometimes.
