I always print with this quiet setting, otherwise the printer is too noisy (mainly the paper transport).There is a Quiet setting in the Maintenance tab for my MB5120. Maybe this setting will slow down printing similarly to your High Quality setting and you can once again print Blacks without issue in Standard Quality.
I tried this test print to see what results I could get on my Maxify.
What image are you using for your test - the image you posted?I first printed ten sheets on standard mode, and I got ink starvation on the first 3 or 4 sheets but then the rest printed out ok. (Just the Magenta)
Excellent information. Thank you, Artur5.I’m using OEM carts refilled with Inktec black ink and OEM ink for cyan, magenta and yellow.
My settings for getting black starvation are: plain paper and standard quality mode. ( quiet or not quiet it doesn’t makes a difference in output, only in speed and noise)
Printing in high quality mode and/or using any photo paper as media setting gives perfect results.
