How do I override my HP Color Laserjet CP1215 to print when it is out of ink?

Hey there! I'm a CS student with a weird request. I'm attempting to break my  HP Color Laserjet CP1215 by forcing it to print with a completely empty cartage... But, logically, it won't let me.

What I'm after is a way to enter some sort of Super User mode that allows me to either trick the printer into think it has ink when it doesn't, or make it ignore its own out of ink warnings and attempt to print.



Please let me know soon so I can continue my demented experiments, in pursuit of a good grade!
