    OKI C710 color printer unable to print default in black


    hi guys,

    the printer on my compuer is a Lexmark E360dn, but the printer on the second computer is the OKI C710.

    I cannot enter preferences to force the colour printer to print in black.


    Is there any way to alter the printer preferences to change this. Sure it can be done in the document itself, but who wants to do that every time.

    3 on the 4 computers can print in black but they all work in Windows 8.1

    Thanks

    Jeff

    Windows 8.1 and 10

    Hello,

    I'd experiment a different driver for Windows 10, a universal one might work. Find out if there's an optional driver's update for the printer in question.

    Have you been able to default to black print from the OKI on another system and/or another OS?

    Although I have several printers, I have a networked laser monotone network printer that I can use with any of my computers for black printing.

    yes Wynona,

    no problem with Win 8.0 or 8.1

    only with Win 10 T.P.

    Then I'd guess it's a lack of a Windows 10 driver. And that and a buck 25 will get you a cup of coffee.
