Officejet 8500 doesn't print in black due to color ink shortage

Hi,

I have officejet 8500 with seperate ink cartridges, I ran out of yellow ink and the printer doesn't print even black&white print jobs, how can I enforce the printer to print black&white jobs till I buy new yellow ink?

 

thank you,

guy.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm looking to replace our LaserJet 3050. One would think that you don't need yellow ink to print in B&W, right? I'm glad I'm not a corporate IT manager that purchased 50 of these! We just need this stuff to work how it's supposed to. Try keeping a few almost empty spares around so you don't get stuck, or use one of the many refill kits available.
