If you wish to know how do I get my Epson Printer to print without color ink, then follow the steps mentioned here. Cancel the print task that was active before you ran out of color ink. Now, load the sheets in the input tray. Go to the print application menu and select printer settings. After that, you can choose Envelope, Plain Paper, or Bright Paper from the available options. Check the Grayscale or Black checkbox and then continue with the process to print without color ink. Now, select the option of “Print in Black” and start with the printing process.
