Officejet pro to use Black cartridge ONLY

HP Recommended
Officejet Pro 8610
macOS 10.15 Catalina

My printer just decided it does not like the Magenta cartridge and it is now refusing to work. I would like to set the printer to forgo using colour cartriges altogether and be a B&W Only.    I do NOT want to buy a bloody new printer. It has a perfectly good scanner and printer head blah blah.  Any help will be much appreciated.

 

Cheers


Siamak

Hi,

The printer must have all ink cartridges available and with ink to print, printers with 4 different ink cartridges cannot be used with black ink only, this cannot be bypassed and any empty cartridge must be replaced to print:
