Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The printer is likely going to want cartridges inserted (even if they're empty).
Install the used or empty color cartridges. Then go to your printer settings and choose to print by default in "Grey Scale". This will force it to use only the black ink.
If you get low ink notifications from your print monitor, you can either disable the print monitor or disable the notifications. Please, let us know if you need assistance w/ this.
To Set your printer to use Greyscale (black ink only) by default:

Place a check mark in the box to the left of PRINT IN GREYSCALE
Click the OK button
Click the OK button again
