The printer would need all cartridges to have sufficient ink levels to continue printing - that's to prevent damaging the printhead. Every time a cartridge is replaced, all colors
are primed simultaneously thus the need for all cartridges to have ink.
To save on your ink investment, try printing in draft mode and by making sure that your printing preferences is set to print using black ink only.
The Lexmark Platinum Pro905 needs all four inks to have substantial ink for printing at all times in order to prevent damage to the printhead. This is why a user has to replace empty ink cartridges to continue printing. This includes color cartridges for black only jobs.
The Lexmark X2600 requires both cartridges to have ink in them to continue printing, even if your printing in "black and white". To
print true black, you actually use some of the color ink. , Leaving the color cartridge empty or dry isn't good for the printer. It can
lead to poor print quality issues.
You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink
Most of the Canon printers form the PIXMA iP series block printing when one of the cartridges is empty.
You have some options:
1) change the cartridges (with original or compatible)
2) buy a chip resetter and reset the empty cartridges chip so they can cheat the printer that they are full. This way you will clog the nozzles of your print head and the printer will become useless and won't print.
That's why I suggest you to but even cheap compatible cartridges and replace them.
Hope this helps.
You need to have color cartridges installed for your printer to function. You can however print black and white with empty color cartridges. If you do this you may damage the print head and not be able to print in color again. If you can live without color printing I recommend a monochrome laser printer. It will never print color, costs 1/2 as much to print with, won't dry out, and the cartridges last way longer than ink cartridges.
The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.
In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.
Is the black case broken?Do you try with another black cartridge?If not, try it.You can't put color cartridge in black case.There is an option to replace all carriage unit.Please contact service in your area.
Im sorry to inform but yes, Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.
