  • HP 3600N printer greyscale problem

    Hey All

    Does anyone have a clue on how to fix a HP3600N printing inverse when selecting grey scale?

    When you print in B&W and in colour it is fine, but when you select grey scale, it print in reverse, the background is black and the typing is white.

    I have done a google, but only thing i found is to use an older driver.

    There must be another way in settings or something

    thanks

      Same problem when installed on a 2008 print server too. Before that, it was installed on SBS 2003 with the older driver version and worked fine.

      Have you actually tried the older driver yet?

        No I havent, thought I would see if anyone new something in the settings before I tried it.

        one user said the mirror image is enable, but I cant find the setting where he said it should be. (in printing preferences, Advanced tab) there is no mirroring option in the advanced tab

        Thanks

          Have you tried looking for that setting using the Web GUI?

            I should add that the only change we made in our environment was the new server OS and the new driver version - everything else was as before.

              Finally fixed the problem, installed a beta version of the driver and all is working fine now
