Point your browser to http://localhost:631/printers/ and press the "Set
printer options" for your printer. Look for something like "Printout Mode",
and check to see if you have a mode that uses black cartridge only.

My PhotoSmart 1000 seems to require a color cartridge even for B&W printing.
Maybe your's will not.
