My Epson Stylus C120 resists my efforts to print in black ink only if the color cartridges are depleted.
What gives?

It's normal with many printers.

Is there a workaround? I am 90% sure that at one time, it would print without color.
Epson claims that just a little color is used when printing in black so the nozzles are kept unclogged.
This sounds like a tad bit of BS.
Workaround?
Thanks

It's not a BS.
Maybe this:

so the nozzles are kept unclogged

but I also read, that it's done, so black print looks crispier.

...and yet the dwindling dollars in my wallet don't get any crispier.
