problem with printer, only want to print in BLACK


Active Member
need to print some work off, however my 'magneta' cartridge is finished and whenever i try to print it says to replace the magneta cartridge. I only need to print my work off in black, and that cartrdige is full (new)

any help? sorry if this is the wrong forum, am using the epson dx4400 printer, thanks

Don't know if this will work, but under preferences, advanced, there is a tick box for print only in black as normally when it prints black it uses all the colours to achieve it hence requiring the magenta.

With most colour printers you will struggle to get them to print even mono only if they use multiple inks
It may not actually use the magenta but they are designed to not print if one ink is missing
