PLEASE HELP: Illustrator CS2 - Can't print "BLACK" BLACKS...
on Apr 21, 2006 at 3:38:35 am

Hi Folks,

Hopefully something simple. I have Illustrator CS2 / Mac OS 10.4.5 / HP Deskjet 1220C (new ink carts - cleaned & prepped).

I am simply typing a single work in black type on a 8 1/2 x 14 (legal) artboard and the color is printing GRAY. Color Settings are RGB (tried CMYK - doesn't work either).
Color settings are "North American General Purpose 2" (tried a few different ones...same result).

I use to be able to print a simple black text resume in super black...now all my blacks are gray (still hi rez & sharp, just the wrong color).

Please help...deadline looming in the AM :(

Thanx so much in advance :)

In order to print BLACK blacks, you need to add some C and M in CMYK to form rich black. In CS2, there is actually a preference setting to display the difference between normal and rich black.
THe greyish print is normal.
Hope this helps
Cheers
Arthur
