If when you print a fax, it comes out as a solid black page, go into the printer's properties and set the printer to Mono.
Printing Squashed or Running off Right Hard Side of Page
If your printing is either squashed down the left hand side of the page, or that it runs off the right hand edge of the page the cause is down to the printer not detecting the right colour cartridge in the printer.
What you need to do is go into the Properties for the printer, then into the Graphics tab, and in the Colour Model section, change the setting from Colour to Photo Colour (if it is already set to Photo Colour, change it to Colour).
It might also be worth turning on Cartridge Detection as well.
Only Prints Black Text/Graphics When Monochrome Selected
When printing a document with Colour selected in the printer driver and a BC-21e cartridge installed in Holder 1 and BC-23 installed in the HOLDER 2, it will not print any black text/graphics. But when the printer driver is set to monochrome it prints the black text/graphics perfectly.
The BCI-21 Black ink tank is empty. This is because when printing in colour, the BC21e printhead is used for all printing, including black. But when printing in monochrome the BC-23 is used.
