My epson stylus c42 has just ran out of colored ink but still has plenty of black.
I've got a Word document that I really need to print tonight.But even tho the document is in black and white the printer wont let me print it. (I get the replace color cartridge message). Is there any way round this? Sorry, I would not bother you guys'n'girls with something so trivial but this document is URGENT!!!

Hi Pug .
yeah, I can get to the preference screen when I 'Ctrl p',and I select black ink,ok,print, and thats when the 'change color cartridge' thingy comes up. VERY FRUSTRATING!!!

Sorry, can't be done.

Found this:

Q: Can I print in black if the color cartridge is empty or visa versa?
A: You cannot print if either ink cartridge is empty. Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement, otherwise the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out. It's best to always have an extra cartridge on hand.

Thanks Scorp,
At least I can stop pulling my hair out now.
P.S. How do I mark a post 'resolved'?
