EPSON How to print in black when color ink is out?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Yup. Epson can suck my fat hairy toes. Spent a S#!$ load on a new black ink cartridge for it to still not work.
I've set all of my options to print in black & white, yet my color cartridge ran out before my black one did!! Now I can't print anything! Is there anyway around this? I for one cannot afford to piss away money on printer cartridges every month or so.
I just bought my first black refill for my Photo 820 then I came here to find out why my printer still won't print. IT'S A 70 DOLLAR PRINTER AND A 50 DOLLAR REFILL. I'll never buy an Epson product again let alone an ink jet printer (NOBODY PRINTS IN COLOR). It's a friggin ink racket. I'm going back to laserjets.
probably put a website on my server and call
epson sucks. I bought an epson c82. I've had it
about 3 months. It says it is out of yellow ink.
I replaced it with a new epson ink cartridge,
still the same thing. I thought maybe it was a
bad cartidge. I bought another set of ink cartridges.
Still the same thing. I can't even print black. If
they can't figure a way around this issue, I'll
sure do my part to let people know what I think about
for Epson Stylus Printers?
There is no valid reason for a printer to be designed in such a way that I need to replace my Cyan cartridge just to print in black. It's a scam to force people into repeatedly putting $60 ink cartridges into $50 printers. Pure scam.
Don't bother with an explanation - I'm dropping the printer (along with the brand new black ink) off at Salvation Army tomorrow morning and if I can't find a replacement that will allow printing with just black then I will be going without a printer. After all, with "genuine" Epson ink cartridges that I use maybe once every 3 or 4 months at most I am already out of 1 colour. What was there, like a single bloody drop of ink in them for the money I paid?
Scam - pure and simple. I'm all done with it.
Rod and Kristen sounds like the same person and in cahoots with them crooks over at epson corporation. Everyone should just stick with laserjets anyway. You donthave to worry about corporate crooks and thieves ripping off the working class. Epson corp...your all piece of shit and can kiss my ass if you thing imma pay for your trips to cancun on $50 a pop for ink cartridges every fucken two or three weeks for cheap ass printer I only paid $70 bucks for.
you got me fucked up and I threw your punk ass printer in the garbage where it belongs
I am now a part of the F Epson club. Same issue with the Cyan and Black. Never again. I knew my parents hadn't done their research when they bought this for me as a Christmas gift. Stupid piece of shit.
My Epson printer is doing the same thing. I changed the printer settings to print in black ink only and it won't let me do anything without replacing the blue. My red and yellow are full. It's pretty much bullshit.... thanks a lot Epson... Useless P.O.S.
I'm with you guys fuck epson
So they disabled black ink printing. I am not giving them extortion money. I'll buy the cheapest knock-off set of color cartridges. I don't care if the nozzles clog or implode. I just want to print black&white.
I joined the club of F Epson. I never ever print foto's but every couple of months my PhotoBlack (cartridge PBK) runs out (why?).
Mind you, this is not the regular black (BK Cartridge). It's runnig out also much faster then on my previous HP. But, at least I'm using that toner.
And the same as with the color cardridges, no printing allowed. :-S
I accepted the outdated and totaly not user friendly software but this is really irritating. Do not buy Epson !
epson is terrible for forcing you to buy color inkto print in black. I will never buy or support epson again
Damn you Epson!! Black ink is full, need to print out an Insurance card to keep in my car and your stupid printer will not let me do it. I MUST replace the red & blue cartridges in order to print a normal black and white page...what kind of BS is this? If I get pulled over by the cops and tell them your sorry excuse for a printer wouldn't let me print the damn card, they are not going to care and I end up with a ticket. You lost me as a customer for good. I will also tell my family, friends and anybody else who listens not to buy your products either.
Epson had best release a patch for my wf--4640. I rarely print color but somehow cyan is out and I can't print invoices. I sell a 100 printers a month . Guess which brand misses out on sales from now on. I am not selling a product I have no faith in. I was talked into trying this one instead of a laser . I've had trouble ever since. Business quality. I don't think so !
EPSON printers are a fucking scam. Rat bastards wont let me print my "BLACK" document because I ran out of "BLUE" ink. Their stupid print dialog doesn't even let you close the program. you have to use task manager to force quit(mean while "BUY INK" button just sits in your face. All they are trying to do is force you to buy more of their ink. It's all a scam. I rarely write customer complaints but shit like this really pisses me off. Trying to FORCE me to do something. FUCK YOU EPSON.
Just put my Epson printer in the rubbish bin where it belongs, what a scam. Have also lodged a complaint with "Fair Trading".
I will never buy an Epson again. I tried to print a 63 page packet required by school and I had to replace the ink THREE TIMES. That's a ton of money. The fact that I can't print a black and white document I need for a dr's appointment tomorrow because I ran out of Cyan enrages me. I want to tell everyone meet never to buy an Epson. Kinks is literally half the cost. I'm not joking. I did the math. For real
