You cannot. You will need to install a full ink cartridge for the ink which is currently depleted.
Even for just black print, even if the black ink cartridge is not empty, these days, most if not all color printers use a combination of the color inks, cyan (blue), magenta (red), and yellow with the black ink to print black and shades of gray. The printers are designed only to print with ink in all the cartridges.
Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.
My solution would be stop typing in caps so I won't hesitate to help you, but my solution is to just buy the ink cartridges or get an old, black only printer instead of a $120.00 HP All-In-One c3180. I have one and I cant use it for some reason, but I'm trying to get it to work desperately...
I had removed and reinstalled the empty 3e cartridge. Sorry for the Confusion. I hadn't put a new 3e cartrige in until today. Them I ran " deep clean" twice. The printer works fine. I still don't understand why the printer wouldn't print color, when I was had set the printer to print in color when my 3e cartridge was empty and all colors including the 6 black showed full.
