HP OfficeJet Pro 6978 All-in-One Wireless Printer,

 

Recommend it?  Can I do black & white printing and just leave the color cartridge in place?    Wireless WiFi connection easy to set up?

Hi,

You can do black & white printing as long as your color ink cartridges have enough ink for servicing purposes, when any color ink is empty you will be prompt to replace it to resume nay printing.

 

You may follow the below steps to connect a wireless printer:

Thank you. If the color cartridges are empty, I can’t do black & white printing?  So technically since I’ll never do color printing, then they should be full all the time. 

Hopefully the printer comes with all color ink cartridges so I’m not stuck buying useless ink!

Too late. It’s out of stock. The 3830 is my next choice. Comments?

For the 3830 printer you may remove the color cartridge when it runs out, and use a black cartridge only.

Thank you. I found one for sale and since I don’t have to have a full color cartridge in it, I’ll buy it. The connection to WiFi is automatically done by detection I’m hoping. I’m a little antsy about new printers since the other one wouldn’t connect. 3830 looks similar to the 5440 and it connects by itself.
