Hi,

You may use black ink only for printing however color ink will still be used to service the printer. once the color ink is too low to maintain the printheads you will no longer be able to print till replacing the color ink.

 

You may set black ink printing by going to Control Panel > Devices and Printers.

Right click the printer icon and select Printing Preferences.

Click he Advanced button.

Set Print as Gayscale as Black ink only and confirm the changes.

Re: HOW TO USE BLACK INK ONLY USING THE 7520 PHOTOSMART

I have been able recently to print black ink only when printing many single different pages from the internet by only making two clicks.  HP has changed that ability by requiring the necessity to make ten clicks for being able tp print each single copy.  The APPLY button was greyed out and now has been deleted. 

 

Originally the claim was to supposedly make black ink only available when all color cartridges ran dry.

 

This change is a disadvantage to the customer.  Please reurn the APPLY button and make it work.
