    is it H.P.
    You can turn your printer setting only to print black and white.

    Can you go into your print settings and set it for black/white only? Or greyscale?

    they use some for the color to add to the black to make it even more black , go figure.
    I am not sure how the new cartridges are but with older models one could cover some of the contacts on the printer head and fool machine to think there were a cartridge installed.

    Selected FAQ

    Q:

    The color ink cartridge is expended even though I print in black only. Why does this happen?
    A:

    To keep the print head clear and ready to print, the printer uses a small amount of ink from all the cartridges whenever it prints. Even if you select Black/Grayscale or Grayscale, some color ink is still being used

    Man that sucks...who would thought black could get more black than black!.... Seems like it is a pretty dumb idea but I guess the fat cats keep getting richer making me buy yet more ink....Ryan
