My printer says that!! It also refuses to scan documents and save them as PDF files on my computer because it has run out of said magenta ink. Sheesh!!
In the past, the printer would just keep printing, until there was nothing on the paper, except for faint baby shit yellow print that could barely be read. Now, my printer isn't just a printer; it's an external drive, so it takes over resources and refuses to do anything if one of the cartridges is critically empty. If that's not bad enough, it constantly reminds me with pop-up warnings.
I admit I get angry - who is my printer to tell me what to do? Grrrr!
What happened to printing out in blue or red when the black cartridge was empty - rip off
I know! Money, money, money!
