    Exclamation Cannot print at all if one of the ink tanks is empty.

    As I seldom print color, I do not want to be compelled to keep the color tanks full. Does anybody know of a fix or is there a printer that weill let me print Black and white when the color tanks are empty.

    FRUGAL FRANK.

    All the printers I have seen will try to print regardless of which inks are empty. It appears that you have one of the few printers where that is not the case.

    Have you tried changing your printer options to print in black/white only?
