I would like to print on my computer with just grayscale(no color) but my printer won't let me because I am out of the colored inks. Is there a way to set the printer up so that it will ignore the colors and only focus on the black ink?

This is my problem as well. It really makes no sense when I set it to print from black cartridge only and the printer refuses because a color cartridge is low.
This needs a fix pronto.

What printer exactly? I have a CLJ2600N that in the setup has an option to essentially ignore missing empty toner..
On mine it's located:
System Setup -> Print quality -> replace supplies -> override (enabled)

Mine doesn't either. Am I losing it, or was this problem nonexistent at one time? I don't remember ever running into this before. Now I am in the middle of an important print job, and I can't finish because there won't be an office supplies store open in my area for two days. I have plenty of black ink, and the item to be printed is in B&W. But because I don't have a color cartridge with enough ink in it to tell my printer to settle down and behave, I can't even print a B&W document.
I agree - this needs to be fixed.
