No point
the machine is programmed to use each colour as required
putting in black cartridges will still only use the one black cartridge
remember that grey is not less black but black with a colour mix

You would not be able to.
The cartridge front is different and would not fit.
Also it is a requirement to have the correct cartridges to print.

I would not advise doing that. Once you do this you could have unexpected poor print quality.
If you only want to print black documents then I suggest you purchase a laser printer, these printers are not expensive now and the cost to per page is cheaper than inkjet printers and they do not suffer from block inkjet nozzles.

Why is my dcp135c printing images in brown instead of black


Several probable causes of this.
  1. Your Black is empty and the printer is trying to approximate the Black using the other colours. Check and replace Black.
  2. Your Black printhead is blocked and all you are seeing is the other colours that are used to make the black into a full black. Check cartridge and do a printhead clean to see if this clears it. Also print off a print quality test sheet (In the Ink Management options on the printer)
  3. Another colour has been put into the Black Slot on your printer. Replace the incorrect cartridge and hope that the printhead has not been damaged by using the wrong cartridge. May need several printhead cleans to clear incorrect ink from the feed lines.
Hope this helps.

I have a hp 6500. It has started printing pink instead of black.


Either:
* printers mix in a bit of "colour" ink when you request BLACK,
so that the colour ink-jets do not dry-out. So, since your BLACK has become EMPTY, all you get is PINK,

or,

* some printers mix colours to produce BLACK-ish colour.
Check that your CYAN and YELLOW ink-cartridges have not gotten to be EMPTY.

Printer is not printing black but in a pinkish color


Most printers use the colour cartridge to make black, instead of the black cartridge. When you go to print a black and white document, on the box where you choose the number of pages to print, click properties, and locate the colour settings. There will be two options: Colour/Black and White-with a sub option of high quality or black only. Select Black only. The printer will now only use the black ink.

The black is printing dark redish brown


Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

There is no black ink in the printer but there is colour how do i get it to print


Depending on the type of printer you may be able to print all in colour instead of black/white. The easiest solution is to replace the black ink cartridge though.

Won't print black


I found a solution to the Black printing problem :)
Under Printing Preferences: Set your Media Type to Photo Paper Pro.
We used edible ink cartridges and printed onto icing sugar paper. Same old... Just one day it refused to print black. In order to continue our small business, I degraded the color until I printed gray and not black.

Tonight, I browsed for the problem and came across this :)

Hope it helps you too
