Did this... It didn't work. Nothing changed. Just to be sure, I also tried selecting "High Quality Greyscale" and still nothing changed. When did this become an advanced option anyway? Some actual help please.

I am having the same problem. If I am out of colored ink, I can't  print even black and white.

The Photosmart 5520e has a permanant printhead and some ink is required to keep the printhead from clogging.  See the document here for information on how ink is used, the Photosmart 5520e is an "IIC" printer in the terminology of that page.
