Want to print ONLY Black and white

Is there a setting to disable color printing? We haven't ordered replacement color toner, but have an extended-capacity B&W one. Can we turn off the color print option and have the priner (a 6180N) continue to print? With an "out of toner" message, it won't print, even if we're not using that color.

 

I have a time-sensitive project and can't afford to buy new color toner for a couple of weeks.

 

Thanks

what happens if you select black and white in the printing preferences?

Re: Want to print ONLY Black and white

I'll have to check. I'm asking in lieue of my wife, who's the user, so I'll see if she's tried that. If that works, we can change the default on her document templates. I'd wondered if there was a menu setting on the printer to tell it to print B&W if color wasn't needed -- it defautls to not printing if a color has run out, even if the document doesn't use color. I have to admit I haven't gone into the depths of the menu system nor the print setting in the software, but I plan to, once I'm home.
