    I have a Dell 3110cn Color Laser Printer and it was working fine. Now, it won't print. I have reinstalled drivers and the like. I believe it is because my 'magenta' cartridge is empty. Anyone know if there is any way to make it print with empty color cartridges, as I only print in black and white anyways.

    When you try to print something, what kind of an error does it give you? Just the standard "Put more magenta in the printer" kind of error?

    it fires up like its about to print.. then it powers down and says "refil magenta cartridge"

    i just called dell tech support, they said with that printer there is no way to go around it. if any cartridge is empty, it will not print.

    im still thinking there might be someting out there to override it. its $360 for the color cartridges... ridiculous!
