Well, I'm sorry but the printer folks all hold us up on the ink cartridge rip off! Nothing you can do but buy the cartridge and pay the price. But you may be able to refill it, I've had some luck in this department but it's far better to just buy one. The machine won't continue to print with just the black cartridge...it uses some color ink to print a black and white copy. I really don't understand why someone can't build a sturdy printer with refillable ink that will operate for pennies and be make of metal so it won't break....! You might look around at some of the stores will sell you a new printer with ink for about the price of the cartridge.

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

Can I only use a black ink cartridge? i ran out


Before you print through the computer, select Print, then select "Properties". Select the "Color" tab and in there, select "Print in Greyscale"
This works for most color printers I have used where the color ink is gone.
Hope this helped.

Ran out of color ink on cnnon mx310 ... want to


If when you attempt to print only with the black cartridge installed but it won't print, then this specific printer requires that color ink also be installed. Typical with most inkjets.

Can i print without color catridges


Hi,

you do need both cartridges in and with ink or the printer will not print to prevent damage to the print heads from running dry. The printer normally uses a small amount of coloured ink to "tone" blacks but if you leave it set to Black only it won't do this and in the future you should only have to replace the black cartridge.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.

epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)

Printing in black & white when color cartridge ran out


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.
