Color Mode


[Auto (Color/B&W)]*, [Black & White]

This settings enables you to specify whether to automatically switch between color printing or black-and-white printing, or always perform black-and-white printing.

[Auto (Color/B&W)]

The machine automatically detects whether the page is reproduced using black (K) only or all four colors: cyan (C), magenta (M), yellow (Y), and black (K).

[Black & White]

Data is printed in black (K) only, even if the original is in color.

IMPORTANT
When color printing cannot be performed, the machine can be used with the Limited Functions Mode, which only enables black-and-white printing.
When the machine switches to the Limited Functions Mode, existing jobs that are being processed are canceled.
When the machine switches to the Limited Functions Mode, existing jobs that have color pages are canceled.
NOTE
If different color data is overlaid, the machine may not distinguish color from monochrome, even if [Auto (Color/B&W)] is selected. For example, although the printout looks monochrome, if different color data is overlaid, it is printed in color mode, thereby using the color toner cartridges to print, not the black toner cartridge. Furthermore, if the data is created as color data in the application you are using, it is printed in color mode, even though the data looks monochrome.
