Yes, and the self test page is in black ink only. Reply to mgm333 m 0 l mgm333 February 16, 2014 8:16:07 AM Yes, and the self test page is in black ink only. Reply to mgm333 m 0 l ex_bubblehead a b $ Windows 7 February 16, 2014 8:20:01 AM A black only self test page indicates a problem in the printer itself. It could be out of ink, clogged jets, or an electrical issue.

(Sometimes if the color cartridge is empty it will reset this setting so you can still print and you may need to change it back ! ) Reply to JDFan m 0 l mgm333 February 17, 2014 7:30:55 AM ex_bubblehead said:A black only self test page indicates a problem in the printer itself.
