Question about In Office Equipment & Supplies
1) Well, the basic law in printing is to get black print output from the black ink cartridge.
2) Expecting or planning on printing a colored item from a black ink cartridge is not possible. Use a color cartridge to print color printouts.
3) Respect the laws of nature.

You should have an option either on the printer driver program or as a setting on the printer itself for colour/ black and white printing.

Hello, This can be FIXED. I'm not trying to be helpful. I'm here to FIX your problem.
You want to make changes to the printer settings to once again print in Black and White or Grayscale mode by going to Start Menu, Control Panel, Printers. Right click your printer and select Properties. Now make the changes to everything prints Black and White or Grayscale. This will make the change effective system wide as opposed to what you did which was for a single print job in a program.
Now, unfortunately, you will still get an error message that your color cartridges are empty anyway because they are.
To disable the error message do this.
Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds and then release it? Use the one Mississippi method of counting.
This will disable the empty cartridge error on most Epson printers.
Let me know of your results as I am here to FIX your problem. I'm not here to be helpful. I will work with you until this is FIXED or is now FIXED. OK? Use the comment box below to let me know your results.

Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.
