Temporarily Printing with Black Ink

When color ink is expended and black ink still remains when printing from a computer, you can use the following settings to continue printing for a short time using only black ink.

  • Type of paper: plain papers, Envelope

  • Color: Grayscale

  • Borderless: Not selected

  • EPSON Status Monitor 3: Enabled (for Windows only)

Because this feature is only available for approximately five days, replace the expended ink cartridge as soon as possible.

  • If EPSON Status Monitor 3 is disabled, access the printer driver, click Extended Settings on the Maintenance tab, and then select Enable EPSON Status Monitor 3.

  • The available period varies depending on the usage conditions.
