Your printer will keep using the color cartridges to keep the printing head working even if you don't print in color. If you need to print only in greyscale, buy a cheap HP printer (Printer only, not a PSC) and remove the color cartridge.

Is there any way to continue to print in BLACK AND WHITE when he colored ink has run out...((5 of the time I print in B&W


I'm afraid not. Most colour printers print what is known as 4 colour black to give a deeper more solid black, so all the coloured inks as well as black are needed to print a black text or image.

I was low on black ink and needed to print flyers , the Epson 630 asked me if i would like to continue printing and use other colors , i pushed yes, and have changed out ink and its still prints in r


Is it possible that you accidentally put the wrong colour cartidges in the wrong spots? Otherwise, it should work fine. Also, the printer's default is usually to print in colour, therefore even pages in black and white will usr colour, which uses up coloured ink. Always check the prooerties when printing to switch to b&w:)

The printer's lying to me


The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

Hardly print in colour but run out of colour ink really quickly.


Really if you know you don't print in colour you can just decide to remove the colour ink from the printer and observe to know if it empties after a while which might mean that it was getting dried up somehow.

Do get back to me over this after you might have tried it out.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Colour cartridge missing but I only want to print


No you cannot. Each one of your cartridges is smart chipped. When this cartridge registers as empty it acts as an on/off switch thus turning the printer off.'

You need to replace the empty cartridge in order to print.

Go printer settings and check option to print only black.

Colour not printing


After nightmares myself - I eventually took the printhead out with the cartridges still in - get an old towel or loads of tissues and wrap around the bottom of the printhead so you dont get ink all over yourself - try not touch the green bits - then blow through the tiny holes on top of the cartridges. After a while youll hear a splat - and will see the ink has blown through - wipe clean - put ink head back into printer - re-align printhead and try printing. After 3 weeks of mine not working/printing this made it work again! hope this helps!

I cannot print but i have only the black cartridge but i dont have the yellow cyan ang midget


Most modern printers use some colour when printing Black and therefore will not print if ANY ink cartridge is showing as empty.

Unless your printer has a setting for using Black ink only (this is not the same as printing a black and white document), then you will need to purchase and install the colour cartridges before printing can take place. The good thing about this is that very little colour ink is used when printing black and white documents - so they should last a long time.

Good luck.

Why does it keep running out of color ink, while printing only Black and White?


Whilst you rarely print in colour, its important to know that you should try to print in colour at least once a week. This will reduce the risk of your colour nozzles blocking up.

Many people have gone out to replace their 'hardly used' colour cartridges when they dont work, thinking that they have dried up, when infact its simply blocked nozzles.

If you want to keep your colour nozzles and ink ready to run, just do a full colour alignment every 1-2 weeks. Minimal ink usage there and you keep your Canon MP780 running well!
