Epson Epson Stylus Photo R280

Epson R280 Ink Out and Can't Print

Have R280....had no clue if one cartridge ran out of ink I wouldn't be able to print at all....AHAHHAHAHA...what a F'cking scam!!! Anyway, how do I get around this...I only print in black anyway for CDs. My yellow ran out, black is full....can't print anything even in greyscale....ridiculous.

You need to replace the cartridge in order to continue printing. Grayscale uses all colors to print.

This is the way it is with ALL printers. Good post Sue.

Not really. This is something newish. I had an Epson for years in the 90s that would let me print black even if I was out of another color. I don't know when/how/why/etc. this became standard.
