can a t520 print out (black) even if a color ink cartridge is empty or does the printer stop all functions until the cartridge is replaced?
We plan to replace a non hp plotter with a T520 (maybe later we switch to the 2500 series) and above question is a "point for decision" for "buying or not".
Thanks for any official information about it.
Didn't find anyhting in user/service manual - and dealers have no idea about such a thing ;-}

The printer needs all the ink to be able to print.
If you are going to print only on black you can set the driver to print using black ink only.

When any catridge is depleted, it wont let you continue printing until you replace that catridge. It does not matter if you have selected the 'use only black ink' option.
