You can cheat if you like:
stick some tape around the "nose" of the colored ones. The part of the printhead which uses the C/Y/M might be in disorder because of lacking ink after some time!

How do I change the ink setting from colour to black and white on the control panel after I have removed a colour ink cartridge and replaced it with a black and white cartridge?


I doubt the printer will work. You need to go to properties in the program you are trying to print from to change from color to black and white, but again I doubt the printer will print without both cartridges installed properly.

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.

I recently replaced the black ink cartridge and do not wish to use the colour cartridge. However, the printer still keeps flashing the critically low level of my colour cartridge and does not print.How can...


Many printers always use a small amount of each color even if you are only printing black, to prevent the color nozzles from drying out and getting clogged (and, it forces you to buy more ink, which is a profit center for printer manufacturers)

For this reason, some printers will not work if ANY of the cartridges are empty.

It should work again if you replace the color cartridge. Make sure to select "black ink only" or the option to print in black and white or grayscale to minimize color ink usage. It may still use a little, but that's OK.

Printing in just black and white


Epson,. has it rigged, that you must have ink in all the cartridges.............! Doesnt make a difference, if you are printing black and white ONLY.

You have to replace them.

Good Luck......

Can i print black and white text only when colour cartridges are empty but black is full on an ip14300?


you can make a selection from the File->Print option of your word processor or whatever package you are using. it is your command that sets the printer to B&W or color. If your Black ink finishes then the printer even if set to color will print black as near black with color inks.

Ok I have a cx8400 all-in-one Epson printer. I was out of black ink so I started using composite black. Also ran out of color ink so I bought the black cartridge and installed it. Now the printer says i...


If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement. You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expendedI have come across this issue many times and unforunately you have to replace the colour carts in order to continue to use the printer.

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.

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.

Not print and not scann without colour cartridge


most printer require all cartridge to be present and recognised before they will operate- even though you only wish to print -say- text in black. When printing in most machines all colours print even if it is only text you want. Except some machine can have a black only mode This will be found in the properties menu, if your machine has the facility
