Question about Epson Expression Premium XP-610 Small-in-One Wireless All-in-One Printer & Extra Black Ink Package
I do not wish to replace the color ink in my printer, but I have replaced the black ink. However, my printer seems to be stuck in a loop that will not let me print until I replace the color cartridges.
How do I change the ink cartridges?
Do the following:
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution:
Leave your old cartridges in the printer until you are ready to replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out. Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Do not move the print head by hand; otherwise, you may damage your product. Do not touch the flat white cable inside the printer.
Warning: If ink gets on your skin, wash it thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. If ink gets into your mouth, spit it out and see a doctor right away. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
Note: Dispose of used cartridges carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

The product starts priming the ink. This takes a few minutes. When you see a completion message on the LCD screen, ink replacement is complete. Note: If you see an error screen telling you an ink cartridge is installed incorrectly, lift up the scanner unit and press the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place. When you\'re finished, close the scanner unit.
If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot re-install and use the cartridge.
If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, recap the ink cartridge using the cap that came with it to prevent the ink from drying out and to protect the surrounding area from getting smeared by ink. Store the ink cartridge in the same environment as the product. Do not leave the product with the ink cartridges removed for an extended period of time. Otherwise, ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out and you may not be able to print.

Had the same problem but this worked for me. To force a cartridge change, press and hold down the PAPER FEED button for at least 5 seconds as suggested here:
I then changed the black cartridge, even though I hadn't used much ink from the old cartridge and the computer was showing it as three quarters full.

Sorry Desperate. All inkjet printers, from all companies, are programed to only operate with ink in all containers to avoid other problems. Their is no workaround. Please rate me not harshly just because you don't like the answer. Rate based upon the truth of an answer.

no it cannot. Those multi-colored cartridge system requires that you put in every single color, AND ensure that they are not empty before they will print. Even if all you want is a black and white copy.

Unfortunately you cannot override this behaviour without installing a valid cartridge in the printer.
Epson printers do not have this sort of functionality as it would leave the printhead open to damage and foam clogging.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
