How to print with black when a color cartridge is expended
With most inkjet printers, once the black cartridge is empty, you cannot print in black any longer. Black should be "all colors" but if all you have is cyan, yellow and red, you can't make a true black.

SOURCE: printer error
Per Dell this is a problem with either the ink cartridge or the cartridge carrier. The only advice given is to reinstall the cartridges, disconnect the printer power then reconnect and turn on. If that doesn?t work the next step is to replace both cartridges with brand new, genuine Dell cartridges, not refills or equivalents. If that fails the next step depends on if your printer is over 1 year old. If it isn?t then I would contact Dell support immediately for a warranty replacement since the next steps involve taking things apart. Let us know how to proceed.

It is a little known fact that ink cartridges do have an expiry date, and it is sometimes possible that even if a printer reads full, that it has dried out and will not print. When you recieve a warning that your ink is too low you will simply be unable to print black ink after a certain point. Generaly if you want to print in only black you will have to do that when you print a document. For instance in IE when you go to file and then print you can select prefrences and select print in greyscale or black. hope this helps!

To solve the
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
