Epson includes step-by-step instructions on changing the ink cartridges in the Printing Preferences menu:
Click the start button and open the Control Panel.
Right click Printers and select Printing Preferences.
Click the Maintenance tab.
You should see a button that says Ink Cartridge Replacement.
Just follow the instructions and it walks you through it.

This is a tricky one, but there are possibilities.
1. Buy a set of epson C42 cartridges from the cheapest source and keep refilling them - you will need a (very cheap) resetter.
2. Transfer the C42 chip to the C41 cartridge - they are only clipped in place. I don't know if this will work because I only have knowledge of C42 cartridges - the C41 cartridges may be keyed so they wont fit in a C42 cartridge carrier. You may be able to identify a clone manufacturer for which this is possible. You will also need the resetter for this solution.
3. Fit a Continuous ink system (CISS) see for example http://svp.co.uk/products-solo.php?pid=3569&prepg=1

Yes it will still print with black provided that your computer still detects the colored cartridge tanks.If you are certain that there is still some ink left on the colored ones, take them one by one and shake them hard as if you are trying to distribute the ink evenly. After that, you need to do a test print to utilize the colored inks.
