You'll find some members FLAME and RANT over the passing of this feature.
how to get Epson C86 to pring only b & w w/one of the color
See question above. Is this possible?
Thank you for considering my question.
After more time on this issue I think the days of doing this are long gone. Maybe if you fill all carts with black ink?
B&W Is real B&W, its a combo of color as well...
Unless you're an electronics engineer consider this a lost cause. You can't under the typical anything revamp the printer to actually print in B&W w/o color involved. It's that way for one very important reason, inkjet printers no matter who makes them tend to clog. Thus, as unused color ink carts with a B&W only output would when color was needed, become less and less stable as time passes. A typical B&W output is actually using minute color ink to keep the color inkjets refreshed. It serves the minor cause of losing color ink in the process, but at least you'll happy when color demand is needed. Since all ink levels are being monitored when color is low, it has to be replaced to continue on. You may call this a plot/conspiracy but the hope is the inkjet printer has less ink clogs over its lifetime.
Some aftermarket vendors may offer a huge ink tank system upgrade for alot of ink usage. If the C80 falls into this category, good luck.
B & W only...
Thank you very much for your reply re my question. Looks like I have to try other options for B & W only...
