Printer out of yellow ink...won't print black & white!!! WTF

Is HP an evil piece of shite or am i missing something?

I got a new printer about a month ago for my home office. I haven't printed but maybe 100 pages(i doubt that much) 90% of which has been straight black and white. Now im out of yellow ink and the piece of shite wont let me print out a black text in a word document.

Please advise.

Why is the process or printing something so complicated? I mean it really always turns into a huge ordeal.

frick HP, I had an HP printer for a while before this Lexmark I have. The HP printer told me I had to change ink cartridges because I had gone too long without changing them, even though they were full.

Did some research and apparently HP's printers do/did this, ultimately to get you to buy more damn ink, but there was a work around on the interwebs to get the printer to work again. Ridiculous.

They just do that. I have an Epson printer/scanner that won't print anything right now because it's out of blue. I think all printers do this shite

If you left the yellow ink cartridge in the printer, then you should be able to print in black ink. Go to Preferences -> Features -> B&W -> Black Ink Only. High quality black and white (the default option) will draw from the color cartridges.

Or, it might be under Printer Properties -> Features -> Print in Grayscale -> Black Ink Only if using Word 2010.
