Epson 830 black text without colour cartridge.

  Joe McG 13:27 27 Feb 2003

Hi all, around xmas time I bought a new Epson 830 printer.

I have been very pleased with the quality of photo's and all other printing. I now find that, when my colour cartridge has run out, it will not print plain black text, and when i click on print, it only comes up with a window telling me to replace my colour cartridge.

I have been into settings, and changed them to print black ink only, but with just the same results.

Has anyone else had this problem, or can anyone tell me how to sort it.

Thanx in anticipation. Joe.

I have had the same problem with Epsons before. The only way round is to replace the colour cartridge. Although you only want to print in Black Epson will not let you print if either cartridge is empty.

thanks for the reply bud. Another money earner for the ink manufacturers. " Not like them eh!".
