If you right click the printer in the Printers section of the control panel and select printer preferences, there should be a tab called maintenance. In this tab, you should find a setting called Ink Cartridge Settings. Once you click on this setting, click black cartridge only. This should allow the printer to only use the black ink and therefore you won't need color.

If you have any other questions or this doesn't solve your issue, let me know.

You can't print without replacing color cartridge. I'm furious about this. But the color cartridge is needed to help cool the heads when printing. What a rip off. I never had that problem with my HP.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.
