Question about HP Officejet Pro L7680 All-In-One Printer
Can you override this so that you can print in only black and white?
SOURCE: my yellow cartridge reads low
Because the inkjet printer assumes you will always want to be able to print in colour (after all, why else would you buy a colour printer) it will want to keep the jets clean and available for printing.
As a result the printer will always run cleaning routines that use up some of that precious ink otherwise the printhead would clog and then you wouldn't be able to use it properly.
Bottom line is that you need to get a new cartridge. Frustrating but in the context above it hopefully makes a bit more sense..
If you are really only ever doing mono (Black and White) printing then I'd seriously consider a mono laser type unit as the consumables are cheaper and you'd avoid all this waste too.
Hope that helps and sorry it's not quite the answer you were hoping for.
