Restricting color printing
This feature is available for the HP Color LaserJet 3000 and 3800 Series printers only.
The HP Color LaserJet 3000 and 3800 Series printers include a RESTRICT COLOR USE setting for networked printers. A network administrator can use the setting to restrict user access to the color printing features in order to conserve color toner. If you are unable to print in color, see your network administrator.
The network administrator can monitor color usage for a specific HP Color LaserJet 3000 Series printer by printing a color usage job log. See Using printer information pages.
For the HP Color LaserJet 3600 Series printer, the network administrator can deny access to color printing through the Driver Management and Control (DMC) program.
