Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I'm trying to print out a 4x6 black and white photo and I've tried changing so many settings and I keep getting an error saying that I need to restart the printer, change my settings, or install a color cartridge. My color cartridge is empty, but I figured that if I'm printing in black and white, it shouldn't matter. Is there any way of getting around this? I tried from the computer and tried putting the photo on one of those small USB driver things and it still doesn't work. Any solutions?
Actually there is no solution to this "problem" nearly for all Inkjet machines.
The reason is that Printers are Dummy Receivers, meaning that they can not process the print file, sent to them by any source. They are programed to just print the file without "asking questions".
The Manufactures now, of Inkjet machines, in order to avoid the possibility of printing something with a certain colour missing, they have just programmed their machines NOT TO PRINT ANYTHING whenever ANY colour is empty.
So, dont bother trying to print making all kind of adjustments and change settings and get a new cartidge :)
