    No, the printer needs boot of the Ink cartridges in to operate.

Can i print without using my black ink


Unfortunately, you cannot print without using black ink on Epson, and most other, printers. Some printers allow you to use a combination of the color ink to create a "false black". But, the Epson Stylus C46 cannot do this.
Time to pick up some ink!

Hi i have a epson stylus sx400 ansd when im trying to print pictures the faces are coming out purple???


It is possible that the colour ink cartridge needs to be replaced. Be sure to use original Epson cartridges as Generic ones give problems.

Printer will not print in black. Colour ink appears to be out. Should this effect it


Yes for sure If your colour ink is down there is the possibility that the print may vary in colour.As the colour ink level decreases you might have got the error to change the ink. Hence it will tend to change the printing commands. To further confirm on this you can disconnect printer, uninstall and reinstall the printer software,then connect the printer for hardware detection and installation. now do a head cleaning maintenance and a test printing. If there is still no change it will be better to replace the colour cartridge after using the menu for ink cartridge changing so as to get the ink indication correct after installation. Hope you try this out. Good day

Epson C46 - is it possible to set the printer so that it combines colours to produce black. My black cartridge just won't print, I've replaced it, cleaned it, power cleaned it. I know that when the black...


Printing black through color mixing is very expensive!
Try this:
Remove the cartridges and print head.
Make a moxture of 15-20% ammonia and warm water solution.
Soak the head for an hour then completely dry it ,especially the electrical contacts.
Run a cleaning cycle and see if your nozzle check pattern improves.
If so run another clean and recheck or soak it again.
