I don't know if this is common knowledge to everyone but me, but if it get you out of a fix, I'll feel good. I recently had major surgery and was confined to bed - no problem -trusty laptop booted and ready to go, extra printer set up and then it happened. Blank inject cart out of ink, and no replacement (since I don't use this one regularly. Had a few pages I need to print and some charts and notes I promised someone. I changed the color of the text to purple (violet) and everything printed just fine. Since the color cartridge has been in this printer a while, I decided to try and use it up and replace it so I have been printing letters and routine stuff like drafts in dark blue, dark green and am just waiting until I get the "replace color cartridge" warning. Hope this helps someone, it did me. BTW - suggestions on the website with the cheapest inkjet cartridges.
