I recently found an unused printer at home. While the box was open, everything else from the printer to its cables were properly stored and sealed.
I was about to set it up when I noticed that the black setup cartridge was nowhere to be found! I think a family member opened the box solely to snatch the black cartridge and reload another printer at home.
is there any way that I could set-up the printer without the black setup cartridge? Thank you!

The printer need these SETUP ink cartridges from first time printer initialization.
The best option is to return the printer form where you purchased.
However, click on ENVELOPE icon on top right corner of this page to access more information.
