Cyan Cartridge

What happens if I refill the Yellow and Cyan printer cartridges with black ink?

I have a Brother 420-CN which stops printing black if any of the color cartridges is empty.

Even though I rarely print color, the Cyan and Yellow cartridges are empty now and as a consequence of the design of the printer I am no longer able to print black anymore. I don't want to buy or refill the color cartridges, because they are expensive and I don't use them. I only want to be able to print black.

The question is: does anyone know how to circumvent this problem? What if I refill the emptied color cartridges with black ink (the same kind of ink that I use for refilling the black cartridge)? Has anyone tried this? Thank you for your hep!

Well there are 2 consequences:

1) Everytime you want to print the black, you will need to change the font to yellow / cyan since the printer doesnt know it has the wrong ink in it.

2) Black ink is normally pigmented and color inks are normally dye-based. Printer manufacturers specially formulate them to interact so that you get nice black lines without inks smudging into one another.

-> so... if yours is this kind of printer, the moment you pour black ink into your yellow and cyan cartridges, they will interact and gunk up your whole system as there will be some leftover yellow/ cyan ink in your system. My advice is not to do it... really.
