Epson Stylus 1400 cartridge question

Hi - I have an Epson Stylus Photo1400 printer. I only need to print black and white text. Therefore I do not want to purchase all the color cartridges. However, even with a full black cartridge I cannot print. This is true if the color slots are empty or filled with spent cartridges. In both cases the status monitor displays "Printer is not ready to print". My question: Is there any way to tell the 1400 to print with the just the black cartridge installed? Thanks, Eliot
