Question about Epson Stylus CX6600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi. I have an Epson Stylus CX6600 and my magenta ink just ran out. I bought a magenta ink cartridge a while back and can't seem to find it, but in the mean time I would just like to print in black and white. For some reason, it doesn't want to let me do that. Is there any way for me to bypass the message that says "Magenta ink out" and just keep printing in Black and White?
I had the same problem. Had no choice but to buy the colors I ran out to make the printer work. In order to avoid future problems and save on color inked I attempted to follow the steps of a previous posting, however, that did not work for me. This is what I had did. Print, select properties, advance, continue, check box - Black ink only. Remember when you decide to print in color you must reset your setting and take out the check from the - Black ink only.

Can not print in black when color cartridges are empty

(If all your cartridges are ok) you can print in black and white. Click print, then go to copies and pages, choose color sync, then choose quartz filter, and finally choose black and white.

NO! No colour carts., no print. No workaround at all - that's the way they are made. Sorry

One of the possible reason why you can't print black in white because Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. More than that Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head.
