Photosmart C6280 Can't bypass the warnings and print only in black

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I have a photosmart C6280 printer and i want to print in black only, but i can not bypass the "low ink" errors and "expired cartridge" errors to proceed.  I've changed the preferences in my print options to black only but the printer is still flashing  "low ink" or "expired cartridge".  The black ink cartridge is full and in date btw.  I'm afraid of going to buy new colored ink and it still not work, then I'm out of pocket a lot of money and stuck with colored ink cartridges I can't use or return.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled the program...still nothing.  I'm beyond frustrated.

Hi @hatfieldnomore, 
I see by your post that you replaced the black cartridge and aren't able to continue printing. You are unable to bypass the "low ink" errors and "expired cartridge" errors to proceed. I can help you.
The printer can operate only for a short period of time with ‘out of ink’ cartridges. All cartridges must be installed for the printer to operate and they must have sufficient ink for servicing, in order to prevent the printhead from drying out.
I have provided a document for Printing with Depleted Cartridges.
This is for the error 'Ink expiration near' Message Displays on the All-in-One.
Have a nice day!
Thank You.
