Re: can't print when there's only black ink

Here's a trick that worked for me - there are two tiny prisms on the back of each ink cartridge, to refelct light to a sensor indicating whether there is or is not ink in the cartridge. Simply put a small piece of masking tape over the non-mirrored prism, i.e. right next to the mirrored prisms, to make the printer think the cartridge is full of ink. Put the small pieces of tape on each of the three empty color cartridges, being careful not to cover up the mirrored pieces, as light relected from these indicates that there is a cartridge in the slot. The printer will run as if it has full black and color cartridges, but set your defaults to only print black.

I would like to print black with one color cartridge empty

If you take the empty cartridge out and put a small piece of electrical tape over the little window on the front, the printer will think the ink is full.

My Xerox DocuPrint M750 printer will not print black text but will print colour

This is just a suggestion. I recently bought a Staples refilled cartridge and had to return it because it did not work. When returning it the Staples Rep said that 50% of the cartridges do not work and get returned. This was an astounding amount I told the rep. Means nothing to him but to you, you may need to return the black cartridge if it is or is not a refill and try it out again. Let me know if that works.

Cannot print in black only

It is not wise to leave the cartridges empty, causes permanent print-head damage on the empty color area. However, if you want to use the other color, say "black", bypassing the cartridge check is simply resetting the counter of the printer... download the utility file "sscserve.exe" you can search it on the internet. Install it then choose your printer on its list box, then by right-clicking on the printer icon of the utility at the bottom right of your window... you should be able to see what you need. Happy printing!!!
