Question about Epson Stylus C88 InkJet Photo Printer
The printer will keep telling you that the ink is out in the blue cartridge, but on most models this can be ignored/cancelled from the warning box you see and you may then be able to continue printing still in shades of black instead (unfortunately I don't have that same printer model with me at the moment - I have all the other models around in my work room).
If your printer does allow you to still use it despite running out of one colour then here is what to do to still be able to print (assuming your using Windows XP - it's about the same for most operating systems) :-
From the START menu, go to Printers & Faxes. Right-click on the C88 printer shown there, and select Printing Preferences. A dialogue box will show basic settings of your printer, click on the ADVANCED button usually at the bottom-right. On the bottom-left you should now see a selector for BLACK INK ONLY - make sure that is ticked, then click APPLY, then OK. The printer may now use just black to create various shades of grey instead of colours.
(this applies to all EPSON printers, and many others too when ran in Windows XP. Vista & Windows 7 may do it a slightly different way).
